PURPOSE To report the change in visual acuity and central retinal thickness by optical coherence tomography (OCT) after intravitreal injections of bevacizumab for the treatment of neovascular age-related macular degeneration (AMD). METHODS A retrospective case series in a university-based practice evaluated patients with subfoveal choroidal(More)
Field experiments with manipulations of natural enemies of plant-feeding insects may show how a diverse enemy group ensures an important ecosystem function such as naturally occurring biological pest control. We studied cereal aphid populations in winter wheat under experimentally reduced densities of: (i) ground-dwelling generalist predators (mostly(More)
BACKGROUND/AIM To evaluate the clinical, anatomic and functional effects of conversion to aflibercept following ranibizumab and/or bevacizumab in patients with neovascular age-related macular degeneration (AMD). METHODS A retrospective review of patients with neovascular AMD treated with intravitreal ranibizumab and/or bevacizumab who were switched to(More)
PURPOSE To describe the optical coherence tomography angiography features of diabetic retinopathy. METHODS Using a 70 kHz optical coherence tomography and the split-spectrum amplitude decorrelation angiography algorithm, 6 mm × 6 mm 3-dimensional angiograms of the macula of 4 patients with diabetic retinopathy were obtained and compared with fluorescein(More)
PURPOSE To report on a series of white patients in the United States with polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy (PCV). METHODS This is a retrospective chart review of 27 patients at a single center with PCV. RESULTS The mean age was 74.3 with 48% being male. The most common presenting diagnosis was exudative age-related macular degeneration in 59%, and it(More)
Retinal vascular diseases are important causes of vision loss. A detailed evaluation of the vascular abnormalities facilitates diagnosis and treatment in these diseases. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) angiography using the highly efficient split-spectrum amplitude decorrelation angiography algorithm offers an alternative to conventional dye-based(More)
OBJECTIVE To report the prevalence of vitreous hemorrhage in pars planitis and to compare the prevalence of hemorrhage for children and adults with the disease. DESIGN A retrospective, cross-sectional observational study. PARTICIPANTS One hundred eighteen consecutive patients with pars planitis who were evaluated at the Oregon Health and Science(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare 2 laser photocoagulation techniques for treatment of diabetic macular edema: the modified Early Treatment Diabetic Retinopathy Study (ETDRS) direct/grid photocoagulation technique and a potentially milder (but potentially more extensive) mild macular grid (MMG) laser technique in which microaneurysms are not treated directly and small(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate vitrectomy for diabetic macular edema (DME) in eyes with at least moderate vision loss and vitreomacular traction. DESIGN Prospective cohort study. PARTICIPANTS The primary cohort included 87 eyes with DME and vitreomacular traction based on investigator's evaluation, visual acuity 20/63-20/400, optical coherence tomography (OCT)(More)
