In this study, the functional and cytological status of lacrimal glands after RAI therapy was evaluated. METHODS Twenty-five patients with a(More)
AIM To compare the results of noncycloplegic photorefraction, cycloplegic photorefraction and cycloplegic refraction in preschool and non-verbal children. METHODS One hundred and ninety-six eyes of 98 children (50 females, 48 males) were included in the study. Firstly, non-cycloplegic photorefraction was achieved with Plusoptix A09; secondly, cycloplegic(More)
BACKGROUND The object of this study was to determine factors that might be associated with intraocular pressure (IOP) elevation after anterior segment open globe injuries (zone I). METHODS Data were obtained from the records of 68 patients who experienced zone I open globe injury between January 2008 and October 2010. Group I was composed of patients with(More)
BACKGROUND/AIM To investigate the biometric components and refractive errors in premature infants with or without retinopathy of prematurity (ROP). MATERIALS AND METHODS Anterior chamber depth, lens thickness, vitreous length, and axial length were measured with an ultrasound biometer. Cycloplegic refraction was performed by streak skiascopy. Infants with(More)
BACKGROUND/AIM The aim of this study was to report the gestational age (GA) and birth weight (BW) distribution of premature babies who needed treatment for retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) and to assess the timing of the treatment. MATERIALS AND METHODS The records of 9008 infants who were screened for ROP were examined and 556 infants who underwent laser(More)
