INTRODUCTION The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of short-term oral valproic acid (VPA) on the vision and visual fields of patients with retinitis pigmentosa (RP). METHODS In this prospective, nonrandomized trial, 10 patients (20 eyes) with established RP were treated with oral VPA 500 mg/day for 3 months. Visual acuity was monitored using(More)
AIM To study the effect of lanosterol on age-related cataractous human lens nuclei. MATERIALS AND METHODS Forty age-related cataractous nuclei removed during manual small incision cataract surgery were obtained and randomly immersed in 25 mM lanosterol solution or in control solution and stored at room temperature for 6 days. Pre- and post-immersion(More)
Subretinal lipid exudation in an untreated choroidal melanoma is very rare. It is seen following plaque radiotherapy in choroidal melanoma. There is only one case report of untreated choroidal melanoma with massive lipid exudation in a patient with metastatic hypernephroma. We report here a rare case of untreated choroidal melanoma with lipid exudation.(More)
Silicone oil migration into the subretinal space following vitreoretinal surgery may occur in complex cases of retinal detachment with proliferative vitreoretinopathy. This complication prevents achievement of the primary goal (ie, to attach the retina) and fails to provide the internal tamponade, leading to a permanent decrease in visual acuity. Successful(More)
