The early diagnosis and detection of progression are two key-elements in the actual management of glaucoma. The current opinion in clinical practice is to quantify the structural damage for a better follow-up of the patient and the standardization of the results. The present review is a concise survey of literature covering the period of 1990-2010,… (More)

The etiopathogenic mechanism of most macular holes in children and adolescent is idiopathic. The suggested etiopathogenic mechanism is vitreoretinal traction due to a toxocara granuloma for a 9 years old girl.

MATERIALS AND METHOD A prospective study was carried on 204 patients diagnosed with POAG and a follow-up period of 4 years. All the patients underwent complex ophthalmological examination, C/D ratio, Disk Damage Likelyhood Scale… (More)
OBJECTIVE This prospective study aims to evaluate how the vascular involvement of the optic disc, emphasised by angiofluorography (AFG), correlates with morphologic lesions observed by Heidelberg retinal tomography (HRT) II. METHOD AFG (Visucam Zeiss) and HRT II (with Moorfields regression and keratometry) have been performed on the study group -50 pts.… (More)
The authors present the case of a 27 years old man who came to our clinic for sudden, painless and profound bilateral loss of visual acuity in both eyes, 14 days ago, during hospitalization for an acute episode of abdominal pain. The clinical aspect correlated with the personal pathological aspects permitted us to establish the diagnosis of Purtscher… (More)
