PURPOSE To characterize the differential expression of intraocular inflammatory cytokines in eyes with branch retinal vein occlusion (BRVO) and to assess their roles as prognostic determinants of BRVO. METHODS A prospective cohort study of 38 eyes with BRVO. Aqueous humor samples were collected just before the intravitreal injection of bevacizumab and(More)
PURPOSE To determine the relationship between the levels of intraocular inflammatory cytokines and polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy (PCV). METHODS Prospective cohort study. Sixty-two patients with PCV and 36 control subjects were studied. The levels of cytokines, chemokines, and growth factors in the aqueous humor samples from PCV patients and control(More)
PURPOSE To identify the genes that can differentiate primary from recurrent pterygia. METHODS The transcriptional differences of primary and recurrent pterygia were first determined by microarray analyses. Computational analyses were used to extract the biological significance of the genes accurately, and a significant functional classification of the(More)
PURPOSE To determine the relationships between the levels of intraocular inflammatory cytokines and the clinical characteristics of myopic choroidal neovascularization (mCNV) in eyes with myopic maculopathy. METHODS One hundred eyes of 100 cases, including 51 mCNV eyes, 14 highly myopic eyes without choroidal neovascularization, and 35 normal subjects,(More)
PURPOSE To report a case of unilateral retinal pigment epithelium dysgenesis. METHODS An 8-year-old boy with a large grayish lesion and leopard-spot pattern lesion at its periphery in his left eye underwent fluorescein angiography, fundus autofluorescence imaging, optical coherence tomography, and electroretinography. RESULTS Fluorescein angiography(More)
