The Verteporfin in Photodynamic Therapy (VIP) Study failed to prove a statistically significant benefit for myopic choroidal neovascularization (CNV) at the end of the second year. Therefore, we wanted to evaluate whether the early effects seen under anti-VEGF treatment can be maintained over longer follow-up intervals. This consecutive case series included(More)
AIM The aim of the study was to assess the long-term efficacy and tolerability of tumour necrosis factor α (TNFα) inhibitors in the therapy of children with refractory antinuclear antibody (ANA)-associated chronic anterior uveitis. METHODS Retrospective analysis of 31 children with ANA-associated uveitis, treated with TNFα inhibitors with a follow-up(More)
BACKGROUND In this study, a conjunctival-sparing ab interno approach for circumferential trabeculotomy, termed micro-invasive suture trabeculotomy (MIST) and its preliminary results are presented. DESIGN Retrospective case-series in a university setting. PARTICIPANTS A total of 31 patients with open-angle glaucoma with history of canaloplasty. METHODS(More)
AIM To assess the efficacy and tolerability of mycophenolate sodium (MPS) in the therapy of children with chronic non-infectious uveitis. METHODS Retrospective analysis of 23 children with chronic uveitis, treated with MPS, with a follow-up of at least 6 months. The main outcome measures were time to uveitis reactivation and corticosteroid-sparing effect(More)
To investigate the use of a small gravity- and tilt-compensated, head-fixed sensor with data-logging function to measure compliance and head posture of patients after macular hole surgery based on the recommendation of a face-down position. Main outcome measures were the median inclination, the times with correct or incorrect head position and the(More)
A 46-year-old patient was referred as an emergency case to our neuro-ophthalmologic department, because her left pupil was mydriatic and unreactive since the morning of the same day. This pupil did not constrict normally on application of 1 % pilocarpin eye drops. Thus the diagnosis of a medication-induced mydriasis was established. The causative agent(More)
To analyze the foveal surface using binary image analysis after spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) following 23-gauge macular surgery in epiretinal membranes (ERM) using either air tamponade (AIR) or balanced salt solution (BSS). One hundred twenty-four eyes (124 patients) with ERM that had undergone membrane peeling with installation of(More)
