We aimed at evaluating the possible role of choroidal perfusion abnormalities in the development of choroidal neovascularisation (CNV) in patients with age-related macular degeneration (AMD). Twenty-six patients who had non-exudative AMD in the first eye and CNV secondary to AMD in the fellow eye were enrolled. Blood flow velocities, vessel pulsatilities(More)
Malposition of an intraocular lens (IOL) may cause symptoms such as glare, halos, and other visual aberrations. The purpose of this study is to determine the effect of two different anterior capsulotomy techniques on IOL tilt and decentration. Bag-fixated IOL implantation after uncomplicated extracapsular cataract extraction was performed using both(More)
BACKGROUND There is controversy about the most appropriate operating methods for complicated rhegmatogenous retinal detachment (RD) including multiple tears, and surgical techniques may be changed according to the preference of the surgeon. In this retrospective study, we compared the surgical results of conventional buckling surgery and vitrectomy with(More)
PURPOSE To determine whether the presence of noticeable strabismus creates a negative social bias against children. METHODS Photographs of two boys and two girls were digitally altered to create photographs of the same child in orthotropic, esotropic and exotropic states. Elementary school teachers rated their perceptions of the children's personal(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the factors affecting the anatomic success of treatment of retinal detachments (RD) by scleral buckling surgery. METHODS One-hundred and two eyes of 102 patients with rhegmatogenous RD operated on by scleral buckling surgery were included in the study. Results were analyzed according to the anatomic status of the retina at the most(More)
We herein describe a patient in whom two intraocular eyelashes and an anterior chamber cyst embedded into the anterior surface of the iris was detected following penetrating eye injury. After a one year asymptomatic period, the patient was hospitalized because of uveitic reaction in the anterior chamber which may be due to cyst development. The lashes and(More)
We have developed a simple technique to verify the final and exact position of the explant on the retinal break before placing the radial or circumferential scleral buckles during the retinal detachment surgery. For this purpose, we used the back end of a dismantled blade holder which is essentially the same size as a sponge.
PURPOSE To investigate the relationship between intraocular lens (IOL) malposition and quality of binocular single vision following uncomplicated extracapsular cataract extraction and posterior chamber IOL implantation. METHODS Fifty-two bilaterally pseudophakic patients were included. The main outcome measures were visual acuity, stereoscopic acuity,(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this study is to investigate the prevalence and clinical characteristics of Charles Bonnet syndrome (CBS) in a group of Turkish patients with various retinal diseases. METHODS Two hundred and sixty-four patients with a best-corrected visual acuity of ≤20/40 in the better-seeing eye were asked with a standardized question whether they(More)
