Ocular burns constitute true ocular emergencies and both thermal and chemical burns represent potentially blinding ocular injuries. Thermal burns result from accidents associated with firework explosions, steam, boiling water, or molten metal (commonly aluminium). Chemical burns may be caused by either alkaline or acidic agents. Common alkaline agents(More)
A vertical recording montage (Cz to the seventh cervical vertebra or C7) has been shown to yield significantly lower auditory brainstem response (ABR) threshold when compared with a horizontal or anterior-posterior montage (Sininger & Don, 1989). The present study further examines the relationship between electrode placement and the amplitude of the ABR to(More)
PURPOSE To investigate the effect of diode laser cyclophotocoagulation for glaucoma on central visual function in patients with good visual acuity (VA). PATIENTS AND METHODS Patients with preoperative VA 20/60 or better who had undergone cyclodiode treatment according to a standard protocol were evaluated retrospectively. The primary outcome variable was(More)
PURPOSE To determine by conjoint analysis which factors in the management and treatment of glaucoma were of most importance to patients and to relate these factors to the patient's clinical glaucoma condition. METHODS An interview-based study was performed. Demographic and visual function data are recorded. Participants completed the Visual Function(More)
BACKGROUND Structural changes in the lamina cribrosa have been implicated in the pathogenesis of glaucomatous optic atrophy, but not observed. This paper presents a novel parameter of topographic variability within the optic disc, termed "spikiness", which may reflect glaucoma-related changes in the lamina. METHODS Four age-matched groups of normal(More)
Visual field changes are one of the main parameters used to monitor progression of glaucoma. This study assesses the degree of intra-observer and inter-observer agreement among nine observers in grading visual fields in glaucoma patients using a visual field system previously described by Jay. The results show a median inter-observer agreement of 61%(More)
AIMS To investigate the day-to-day repeatability of intraocular pressure (IOP) measurements. METHODS A prospective cohort study of untreated patients presenting with primary open-angle glaucoma or ocular hypertension presenting with IOP>21 mm Hg. IOP was measured by masked Goldmann tonometry at 08:00, 11:00 and 16:00 at each of the three weekly visits.(More)
