PURPOSE To compare subfoveal choroidal thickness (SFCT), retinal vessel caliber, and ocular pulse amplitude between treated polycythemia vera (PV) patients and healthy adults. METHODS Forty patients with PV and 40 age- and sex-matched healthy controls were recruited for this cross-sectional study. Spectral-domain optical coherence tomography was used for(More)
The purpose of the present study was to examine the effects of intravitreal ranibizumab on ocular pulse amplitude (OPA) and retinal vessel caliber (RVC) in wet age-related macular degeneration (AMD). Thirty-two eyes of 32 wet AMD patients were included in this case series. Three consecutive monthly injections of ranibizumab were performed. The OPA was(More)
PURPOSE Our aim was to evaluate the effects of argon laser panretinal photocoagulation on ocular and periocular ultrasound elastography values in diabetic retinopathy. Also, we wanted to test the applicability of ultrasound elastography in ophthalmological practice. MATERIALS AND METHODS This is a prospective cross-sectional study comparing proliferative(More)
BACKGROUND To evaluate the ocular pulse amplitude (OPA), the posterior pole asymmetry analysis (PPAA), the peripapillary retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thickness, the ganglion cell layer (GCL) thickness, macular thickness and visual field testing in migraine patients without aura. METHODS In this prospective, cross-sectional and comparative study 38(More)
The purpose of this study was to compare the optic disc parameters, retinal nerve fiber (RNFL), and macular ganglion cell layers between patients with diabetes mellitus (DM) type 2 and healthy controls.In this cross-sectional study, 69 eyes of 69 diabetic patients without diabetic retinopathy and 47 eyes of 47 healthy controls were included. Optic disc(More)
