BACKGROUND Resource utilisation and direct costs associated with glaucoma progression in Europe are unknown. As population progressively ages, the economic impact of the disease will increase. METHODS From a total of 1655 consecutive cases, the records of 194 patients were selected and stratified by disease severity. Record selection was based on(More)
PURPOSE To investigate possible corneal biomechanical changes in patients with diabetes mellitus and understand the influence of such changes on intraocular pressure measurements. METHODS The study group was composed of 120 eyes from 61 healthy control subjects and 81 eyes from 43 diabetic subjects. IOP was measured first with an ocular response analyzer(More)
PURPOSE To determine the efficacy of intraoperative antibiotic use in irrigating solutions on aqueous humor contamination during phacoemulsification surgery and to evaluate the corresponding risk of postoperative endophthalmitis. METHODS 644 eyes of 640 patients who underwent phacoemulsification surgery with foldable intraocular lens (IOL) implantation(More)
The purpose was to investigate the relationship between anxiety, depression, and quality of life in patients with glaucoma. This case-control study was carried out with 121 participants with glaucoma (M age=64.2, SD=13.2; 68 women, 76.0% married) and 64 controls. The data were collected by using a data collection form involving questions on patients'(More)
OBJECTIVES To determine the early signs of pseudoexfoliation (PEX) in fellow eyes of cases with unilateral PEX. MATERIALS AND METHODS Fellow eyes of 34 cases with unilateral PEX were evaluated by slit-lamp and gonioscopy. Findings associated with PEX were recorded. RESULTS Mean age was 67.8±8.1 years (range 55-86 years). Twenty-five patients (73.5%) had(More)
A 65-year-old man developed capsular block syndrome in the early postoperative period, following phacoemulsification surgery. After neodymium-doped yttrium aluminum garnet (Nd:YAG) laser anterior capsulotomy, the intraocular pressure remained elevated for 4 days despite antiglaucomatous medication. On the postoperative fifth day, nonarteritic ischemic optic(More)
PURPOSE To determine the efficacy of Heidelberg Retinal Tomography II (HRTII) parameters in differentiating normal eyes from eyes with early or moderate glaucomatous damage. METHODS HRTII tests were performed on 70 eyes of 70 patients with early or moderate glaucomatous damage, and 70 eyes of 70 healthy subjects. HRTII stereometric parameters, global and(More)
