Objetivo: Avaliar a pressão intraocular e a pressão de perfusão ocular durante uma sessão de hemodiálise. Métodos: Sessenta e sete olhos de trinta e cinco pacientes foram avaliados no início, após 2 horas e após 4 horas do início de uma sessão de hemodiálise. A pressão intraocular foi avaliada usando o aparelho Tonopen. Pressões arteriais sistólica e(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate and compare the observers' ability to measure simulations of cup/disc ratios (CDR) as concentric and non-concentric circles. METHODS In a prospective, random, and masked setting, 43 images representing the CDR spectrum from 0.2 to 0.9 for vertical and horizontal CDR measurements were developed and presented on a computer screen to 171(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this study was to evaluate the duration of the effect of one single dose of brimonidine tartrate 0.15% on pupil diameter, under scotopic conditions, when applied topically in 1 eye of normal subjects. METHODS The eyes of 19 normal volunteers were randomized so that 1 eye had 1 drop of brimonidine tartrate 0.15% and the other received no(More)
We report the first case of ocular infestation by Loa loa in Brazil. Loiasis is caused by infestation with Loa loa, a filarial parasite originally found in the rainforests of western and central Africa. It is transmitted by the bite of the fly Chrysops and has been recently described in other places other than Africa, in African immigrants or travellers.(More)
A case of a 53 year-old female patient who developed branch retinal vein occlusion after six 3 mg/kg Infliximab infusions for rheumatoid arthritis treatment is reported. Hematological disorders, cardiopathy and chronic systemic hypertension evaluation were negative. The relationship between the infliximab therapy and the development of retinal vein(More)
AIM To evaluate the intraocular pressure and ocular perfusion pressure during a hemodialysis. METHODS Sixty-seven eyes from thirty-five patients were evaluated at the beggining of hemodialysis, 2 hours and 4 hours after initiation. Intraocular pressure was evaluated using a Tonopen. Systolic and diastolic arterial pressures were measured with a manual(More)
