The results of a retrospective study of the effects of silicone oil removal from 85 eyes in 85 patients are reported. Pars plana vitrectomy and fluid/silicone oil exchange had been undertaken for retinal detachments associated with giant retinal tears or with proliferative vitreoretinopathy in all cases. Clinically significant cataract developed in 60% of(More)
Sixty-four eyes of 57 elderly patients with pigment epithelial detachments (PEDs) were studied with the aim of describing their morphological features and identifying prognostic factors. They were classified into four groups according to the following characteristics: early fluorescence, late fluorescence, shallow detachment with limited fluorescence(More)
A retrospective study of the effects of silicone oil removal was carried out on 85 patients who had undergone pars plana vitrectomy and silicone oil exchange for giant retinal tears or proliferative vitreoretinopathy. Silicone oil was removed either as part of the treatment of anterior segment complications such as glaucoma and keratopathy (25 patients) or(More)
PURPOSE To compare tritan contrast threshold (TCT) with fundus photography in screening for sight-threatening diabetic retinopathy (STDR), before significant visual loss. DESIGN Prospective, comparative study. METHODS A total of 510 consenting diabetic patients attending a hospital-based photographic screening clinic were recruited over a 2-year period.(More)
A prospective study was carried out to investigate acquired colour-vision deficits in diabetics using an automated, computer-controlled, cathode-ray-tube based test of chromatic contrast. Chromatic-contrast thresholds estimates were measured along both a red/ green (constant S-cone) confusion axis and a tritan (constant M/L-cone) confusion axis for 305 eyes(More)
PURPOSE The number of very elderly patients waiting for cataract surgery is predicted to increase. The aim of our study was to determine the clinical outcome following cataract surgery in this age group. METHODS In this retrospective study, patients aged 96 years and above, who underwent cataract surgery between June 1993 and January 2001, were(More)
Vortex vein decompression and/or partial thickness sclerectomies were performed on 6 eyes of 4 patients with uveal effusion syndrome. Vortex vein decompression was undertaken in 3 eyes and was followed by retinal re-attachment in two. Multiple sclerectomies were undertaken in 4 eyes of 3 patients; an initial reduction of sub-retinal fluid occurred in all(More)
PURPOSE To describe the vitreoretinal complications in a cohort of patients with osteoodontokeratoprosthesis (OOKP) and discuss surgical management. METHODS Review of notes of 35 OOKP cases performed at the Sussex Eye Hospital (Brighton, United Kingdom) between January 1999 and December 2005 was performed. RESULTS The overall incidence of vitreoretinal(More)
