Ten moderately myopic women had blurred vision, light flashes, or paracentral scotomas associated with small yellow-white lesions of the inner choroid and pigment epithelium. Most lesions had an overlying serous detachment, were hyperfluorescent, and leaked fluorescein during the acute phase. The lesions healed into atrophic scars and became progressively(More)
The authors prospectively studied 106 consecutive phakic eyes with acute posterior vitreous detachment to determine the correlation between anterior vitreous pigment granules and retinal breaks. Pigment granules were identified in 15 eyes (14.1%), all of which had either a flap or an operculated retinal break. A retinal tear was found in only one eye(More)
The proliferative activity of a number of intraocular fluids, bovine retinal extract, and normal serum (from humans and cynomolgus monkeys) was investigated by in vitro tissue culture studies, with the use of tritiated thymidine incorporation by the cultured endothelial cells of human umbilical veins. There was increased tritiated thymidine incorporation by(More)
We studied 24 patients undergoing vitreoretinal surgery to compare the systemic absorption and cardiovascular effects of 2.5% aqueous and 10% viscous ophthalmic solutions of phenylephrine hydrochloride. Plasma levels measured in patients receiving two drops of 10% viscous solution were consistently higher ten, 20, and 60 minutes after instillation (P less(More)
A small group of eyes with proliferative diabetic retinopathy develop progressive macular traction characterized by partial vitreous detachment with vitreo-retinal traction along the arcades and disc, retinal traction lines extending through the fovea, and progressive visual loss. Vitrectomy may be helpful in stabilizing selected eyes and actually improving(More)
We determined the site of the focal illumination from the Zeiss OPMI-6 operating microscope on the retina of the phakic and aphakic human cadaver eye by directly observing the illuminating element image on the posterior scleral surface of the globe. With the eye straight ahead and the operating microscope level, the focal oval area of retinal illumination(More)
The presumed cause of anterior ischemic optic neuropathy is atherosclerotic vascular changes. Small-vessel occlusive vascular disease most likely causes occlusion of one or more posterior ciliary arteries, compromising blood flow to the optic nerve head and choroid. We present the case of a 59-year-old black man with cholesterol emboli within the retinal(More)
In seven cases of Terson's syndrome, an elevated, dome-shaped, membrane was detected in the posterior pole by ophthalmoscopy, echography, or during pars plana vitrectomy. Light and electron microscopic examination of two additional eyes obtained postmortem from an acute case of Terson's syndrome revealed that the posterior vitreous face was elevated by(More)
Retinal periphlebitis appeared as an early sign of bacterial endophthalmitis in three patients, a 36-year-old man with bilateral Terson's syndrome who underwent vitrectomy for dense vitreous hemorrhage, a 78-year-old woman who had had intracapsular cataract extraction and penetrating keratoplasty after repair of a wound leak and pars plana anterior(More)
