PURPOSE To document the time course of retinal dysfunction by scotopic electroretinography (ERG) and by quantitative morphology in eyes of the DBA/2NNia substrain of mouse (DBA) with inherited angle-closure glaucoma. METHODS DBA and control C57BL/6J (C57) mice were studied by ERG recordings from 5 to 15 months of age, and by morphology from 1 to 14 months(More)
The purpose of this study was to determine the ability of electroretinographic (ERG) measurements to document progression of the retinopathy in a rat glaucoma model. Thirty four rats with a chronic intraocular pressure (IOP) elevation induced in one eye by cautery of three episcleral/extra-orbital veins were studied in four separate groups. ERGs were(More)
The purpose of the current study was to reveal the occurrence rate of glaucoma among patients with Alzheimer's disease (AD). All 112 patients of four nursing homes in Upper Bavaria, Germany, who met the diagnostic criteria of probable AD, were incorporated into the study. Visual field defects and/or optic disc cupping compatible with the diagnosis of(More)
PURPOSE To report a possible association of glaucoma with Parkinson's disease and Alzheimer's disease. METHODS Retrospective chart review (observational case series). The ophthalmologic charts of 49 patients with Alzheimer's disease and of 38 patients with Parkinson's disease were reviewed to determine the occurrence rate of glaucoma among these patients.(More)
A major focus of our study was the ability to predict the long-term success of filtering surgery. The results of glaucoma filtering surgery (trabeculectomy) as performed by the staff of the University Eye Hospital of Tübingen from 1988 through 1994 on 254 eyes of 214 patients are presented, with particular emphasis being placed not only on intraocular(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the clinical use of a test battery of short wavelength automated perimetry (SWAP), frequency doubling technology perimetry (FDT), and pattern electroretinography (PERG) in predicting progressive glaucomatous visual field defects on standard automated perimetry (SAP). STUDY DESIGN A prospective, longitudinal, observational case series.(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the clinical use of a test battery of short-wavelength automated perimetry (SWAP), frequency-doubling technology (FDT) perimetry, and pattern-electroretinography (PERG) in patients with definite primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG) but normal results on standard automated perimetry (SAP). STUDY DESIGN Prospective, comparative,(More)
Different electrodes and stimulus protocols commonly used for electroretinography in rodent eyes were compared for convenience of use, degree of damage to corneal epithelium, and for magnitude of amplitude, reproducibility, left versus right eye accuracy, and reliability of recorded parameters of the flash electroretinogram (ERG). Adult C57BL/6 pigmented(More)
We have investigated detection thresholds for a foveal blue test light using a Maxwellian view system in 61 normal subjects, 19 patients with Huntington's chorea, 14 patients with Tourette's syndrome, and 20 patients with schizophrenia. Ten measurements were made: The blue test light (1 degree diameter, 500 msec duration) was presented either superimposed(More)
