PURPOSE The irreversible loss of visual acuity in macular edema is usually attributed to permanent loss of photoreceptor cells, although there is hardly any information on changes in photoreceptor function in macular edema. The purpose of this study was to assess photoreceptor function in various stages of macular edema and to relate the findings to visual(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the impact of cystoid macular edema (CME) on visual acuity in patients with uveitis. DESIGN Cross-sectional study. PARTICIPANTS The data from 529 patients (842 eyes) with uveitis were analyzed. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES We recorded gender and age of the patients, anatomic site and diagnosis of uveitis, associations with systemic(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of the study is to delineate the clinical features, complications, visual prognosis, and associated systemic diseases of peripheral multifocal chorioretinitis. DESIGN The study design was a retrospective study. PARTICIPANTS Of 828 patients with uveitis, 53 patients (6.4%) fulfilled all 3 of the following criteria: (1) the presence(More)
AIMS To determine the effect of modified macular grid photocoagulation in patients with refractory macular oedema due to uveitis or cataract extraction. METHODS In this study 20 patients with macular oedema underwent modified macular grid laser photocoagulation and were followed by means of standardised examinations (day 0, months 2, 6, and 12) consisting(More)
BACKGROUND Several studies described the benefits of the heparin-surface-modified intraocular tens (HSM IOL) with regard to the reduced inflammation in routine extracapsular cataract extractions. However, limited information is available about the advantages of the HSM IOL in patients with an intraocular inflammation. AIM To assess the eventual benefits(More)
OBJECTIVE This study aimed to describe the clinical presentation, angiographic findings, and natural history of acquired arterial macroaneurysms diagnosed in 8 of 48 patients with peripheral multifocal chorioretinitis (PMC) (panuveitis with multiple peripheral punched-out chorioretinal lesions). DESIGN A retrospective case-control study. PARTICIPANTS(More)
