PURPOSE This study measured the macular thickness, peripapillary retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thickness, subfoveal choroidal thickness (SFCT), and ganglion cell complex (GCC) thickness in eyes with Fuchs uveitis syndrome (FUS). METHODS In total, 25 patients with unilateral FUS were enrolled. The diagnosis of FUS was based on the presence of several of(More)
The aim of this study was to compare the central and peripheral pachymetric measurements determined with Sirius system and Visante OCT and evaluate the agreement between them at different stages of keratoconus. Measurements were not significantly different in all patients and subgroups and showed high correlation for the corneal thicknesses of the entire(More)
A 40-years-old male patient with a corneal scar secondary to perforating eye injury had undergone ipsilateral rotational autokeratoplasty in our clinics. The corneal scar involved the pupillary area. The patient had a preoperative visual acuity of counting fingers. The patient's cornea was trephined with a 0.5 mm temporal decentration. The 8.0 mm autograft(More)

PURPOSE The aim of this study was to compare the intraocular pressure (IOP) lowering efficacy and to determine patient preference based on ocular discomfort with fixed combination brinzolamide/timolol and fixed combination dorzolamide/timolol in patients with open-angle glaucoma or ocular hypertension who required a change in therapy due to elevated IOP(More)
AIM To describe the clinical characteristics of Turkish patients with intermediate uveitis (IU) and to investigate the effect of clinical findings and complications on final visual acuity (VA). METHODS We retrospectively analyzed the medical records of patients with IU who had at least 6mo of follow-up and were older than 16y. RESULTS A total of 78 eyes(More)
PURPOSE To compare the toxicity effect of polyquaternium (PQ) and benzalkonium chloride (BAK) preservation of travoprost on the ocular surface. METHODS This prospective study included 44 eyes of 44 patients with newly diagnosed glaucoma. Twenty-two patients used PQ-preserved travoprost (PQ group) and 22 patients used BAK-preserved travoprost (BAK group).(More)
