PURPOSE To investigate and compare the prevalence of motor vehicle collisions (MVCs) in individuals with or without primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG). METHODS A total of 265 subjects were consecutively enrolled: 121 (79 men, 42 women; age, 62.1 ± 8.0 years) with POAG; and 144 (95 men, 49 women; age, 61.2 ± 7.9 years) who were free of ocular disease.(More)
PURPOSE To investigate the incidence, risk factors, time course and prognosis of ocular surface complications after trabeculectomy. PROCEDURES This is a retrospective, case-control study. Data on 399 consecutive patients who underwent trabeculectomy between 1999 and 2009 were evaluated. Cases of postoperative corneal epithelial defects, filamentary(More)
To investigate the incidence of intraocular pressure (IOP) elevation after Descemet’s stripping endothelial keratoplasty (DSEK) and associated clinical findings. Forty-eight eyes of 46 patients who underwent DSEK were studied in this single-center retrospective study. IOP elevation was defined as the presence of an increase in IOP above 21 mmHg lasting at(More)
PURPOSE To confirm that subjects with primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG) who avoid driving in high-risk situations are less likely to be involved in motor vehicle collisions (MVCs) than those who do not. METHODS This study evaluated 252 consecutive Japanese aged between 40 and 85 years with POAG. All participants were requested to answer a questionnaire(More)
PURPOSE To investigate the influence of deficiency in superoxide dismutase (SOD) 1, a major antioxidative enzyme, on retinal ganglion cells (RGCs). METHODS In the SOD1 total knockout (SOD1-deficient) mice, the level of superoxide anion was measured using dihydroethidium. The number of RGCs was counted in both the retinal sections and the flat-mount(More)
PURPOSE To investigate the efficacy of intraoperative sub-Tenon injection of triamcinolone acetonide (TA) in increasing the success rate of trabeculectomy for the treatment of secondary glaucoma. DESIGN Prospective randomized controlled clinical trial. METHODS Fifty-three consecutive eyes scheduled for trabeculectomy were randomly allocated in an(More)
AIM To evaluate the association between the magnitude of relative afferent pupillary defect (RAPD) and the laterality of visual fields in glaucoma patients using pupillography. METHODS Evaluations were made with an RAPDx (Konan Medical USA, Irvine, California, USA), which is designed to analyse pupil responses to multiple colour stimuli (white, red,(More)
PURPOSE To determine if Chlamydia pneumoniae infection is associated with primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG). PATIENTS AND METHODS Consecutive patients with newly diagnosed primary POAG attending the Glaucoma clinic of Keio University Hospital between June 2007 and January 2008 were considered for inclusion in this prospective case-control study. Forty(More)
PURPOSE To determine if glaucomatous visual field defect severity is associated with fear of falling. METHODS This is a cross-sectional study. A total of 387 consecutive subjects with POAG were enrolled in this study along with 293-ocular disease-free control subjects, who were screened at the same institutions. We defined mild POAG as MD of -6 dB or(More)
