PURPOSE To identify any patterns in the cause of anterior uveitis in a Turkish population and compare them with results from previous studies. METHODS The clinical records of 75 patients between January 2009 and January 2010 were retrospectively analyzed and classified as anterior uveitis according to Standardization of Uveitis Nomenclature criteria.(More)
PURPOSE To report the outcomes of accelerated corneal collagen cross-linking in patients with thin corneas (minimum corneal thickness < 400 µm). METHODS Thirty-four eyes of 34 patients with a minimum corneal thickness less than 400 µm were included. All patients underwent accelerated corneal collagen cross-linking (irradiance power of 30 mW/cm² at 3(More)
Purpose: To evaluate subfoveal choroidal thickness (SFCT) changes after intravitreal bevacizumab (IVB) therapy for central serous chorioretinopathy (CSC) using enhanced depth imaging spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (EDI-OCT). Methods: In this retrospective study, we assessed the medical records of patients with CSC who received IVB (IVB(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this study is to report the results of 18 months of follow-up after treatment with accelerated (18 mW/cm(2)) corneal cross-linking in patients with progressive keratoconus. METHODS Forty-two eyes of 42 patients with progressive keratoconus were included in this retrospective study. All patients underwent accelerated corneal(More)
Behçet's disease (BD) and vitiligo are diseases of unknown etiology. Interferon (IFN) alpha therapy is commonly used in Behçet uveitis. Interferon treatment in various diseases have also been observed causing certain autoimmune diseases such as vitiligo because of its immunomodulatory activity. The association between IFN therapy and vitiligo has been(More)
Purpose. To report the visual, refractive, and corneal topography and wavefront aberration results of accelerated corneal cross-linking (CXL) during a 24-month follow-up. Methods. Forty-seven eyes underwent riboflavin-ultraviolet A-induced accelerated CXL treatment (30 mW/cm2 with a total dose of 7.2 joules/cm2). Uncorrected distance visual acuity (UDVA),(More)
PURPOSE To assess the effect of low, moderate, and high myopia on the thickness of the retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) and Ganglion cell complex (GCC) measured by Spectral Domain Optical Coherence Tomography (SD-OCT) in non-glaucomatous subjects. METHODS The subjects were divided into three groups: low (n = 81, 35.6%), moderate (n = 79, 34.8%), and(More)
PURPOSE To report a case of Acute Retinal Necrosis (ARN)-developed nephrotoxicity during intravenous acyclovir treatment and toxic hepatitis during oral valacyclovir treatment. DESIGN Interventional case report. METHODS Retrospective chart review. RESULTS A 45-year-old male with ARN treated with intravenous acyclovir developed nephrotoxicity. After(More)
The purpose of this study was to investigate the changes in subfoveal choroidal thickness (SFCT) after intravitreal injection of bevacizumab (IVB) for neovascular age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and diabetic macular edema (DME). This retrospective, consecutive, interventional case series study included 43 eyes [21 affected eyes with neovascular AMD(More)
