This epidemiological study is completed on island Rab, located in North Adriatic Sea. For this study it is important that Adriatic Sea has one of the highest solar radiations in geographical area of Europe. The aim of this epidemiological study is to estimate correlation between incidence of Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD) and exposure of sunlight in(More)
A 33-year-old male patient with fever, splenomegaly, pancytopenia and lymphocytosis was admitted to the Department of Hematology in Rijeka. Laboratory findings, bone marrow aspiration and biopsy excluded hemoblastosis and aplastic anemia. To exclude primary splenic lymphoma we performed splenic aspiration where Leishmania amastigotes were found. No cases of(More)
Depending on the geographic and climatic region and vegetation, allergenic plants are characteristic for certain areas and the pollen concentrations of various plant species depend on the fenophase of each single species and most of all on the climatic and meteorological conditions of a certain area. It is precisely because of these specific characteristics(More)
A case of a 9-year-old boy with a transorbital toy-arrow injury to the brain is presented. At admission he was in coma (Glasgow Coma Scale of 6) with right hemiparesis and had a completely prolapsed left eye.

50 patients with diabetes mellitus of 2-7 years' duration were divided by a random method into 2 equal groups, one of which received 1,500 mg of Doxium (calcium dobesilate) daily for 3 months, the other group receiving a placebo. All the patients had diabetic retinopathy, open-angle glaucoma, raised intraocular pressure, and hyperviscosity of whole blood,(More)
We evaluate the effect of intravitreal injections of Bevacizumab (IVB) alone or combined with triamcinolone (IVT) in the first injection for treatment of refractory diabetic macular oedema (DME). Sixty eyes of sixty patients with refractory DME were included. Half of the receive injections of IVB (1.25 mg/0.05 mL) or combined IVB and IVT (1.25 mg/0.05 mL(More)
According to early examination (Vojniković, 1978) estimated, that the index of refraction for aqueous and vitreous is not the sum (1.33 or 1.66), than is for aqueous n = 1.334, and for vitreous N = 1.336. This measurements are made with Abbe's refractometer, by temperature of 33 degrees C for aqueous, and 36 degrees C for vitreous, as it's in human eye. In(More)
Charles Bonnet syndrome (CBS) is a condition related to patients with visual loss due to age related macular degeneration or glaucoma that are having complex visual hallucinations. The CBS was first described by Swiss physician Charles Bonnet in 1760. Affected patients, who are otherwise mentally healthy people with significant visual loss, have vivid,(More)
In a double-blind randomized clinical trial, 79 non-insulin-dependent diabetic subjects with early retinopathy and open-angle glaucoma received orally either three 500-mg capsules of Doxium (calcium dobesilate) daily for 6 months (41 patients) or three placebo capsules daily for the same period (38 patients). At the end of the study statistically(More)
It is well known that age-related macular degeneration (AMD), besides glaucoma and diabetic retinopathy, represents a major cause of low vision and blindness throughout the world. In this study, specific causal factors of AMD are analyzed, emphasizing the causal role and effects of sunlight, no matter which part of its spectrum, in a longer exposition(More)
