Accurate preoperative measurements are required for refractive and cataract surgery. Pentacam is a new imaging system for anterior eye segment study. The authors present technique and the range of measurements; topography of both anterior and posterior corneal surface from limbus to limbus, densitometry, anterior chamber angle, volume and depth, lens(More)
BACKGROUND Clinical data have shown that tick-borne diseases caused by Borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato, Bartonella spp., Coxiella burnetii, and Rickettsia spp. can affect the central nervous system, including the eye. The aim of this study was to establish a relationship between the incidence of cataract and evidence of bacterial infections transmitted by(More)
BACKGROUND Acute retinal necrosis (ARN) is characterized by the triad of acute vitritis, peripheral necrotizing retinitis and vasculitis. CASE REPORT We report a case of 54-year-old woman with bilateral acute retinal necrosis associated with neuroinfection. Her past medical history included renal transplantation, hypertension and aortic stenosis.(More)

OBJECTIVE To evaluate changes in the macular thickness and volume using optical coherence tomography in patients after phacoemulsification and intracapsular implantation of a foldable intraocular lens. MATERIALS AND METHODS The study included 82 patients (37 males and 45 females) after phacoemulsification and intracapsular implantaion of the same type of(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of the study was a statistical analysis of the possible effects of pregnancy, postpartum period, and lactation on increased risk for reactivation of toxoplasmic retinochoroiditis. MATERIAL AND METHODS A retrospective study was undertaken of the clinical records of 661 patients referred with the diagnosis of acute toxoplasmic(More)
BACKGROUND During pregnancy and labor, the immune response is physiologically impaired and women are more susceptible to infections. Since many drugs may have potentially adverse effects on the fetus and newborn, less aggressive treatment regimens should be considered in pregnant and lactating patients. The aim of our study was to present the management of(More)

OBJECTIVE To assess the utility of the optical coherence tomography (OCT) in diagnosing, differentiating and monitoring of choroidal nevi situated in the posterior pole and optic disc area. MATERIAL AND METHOD 116 consecutive patients (65 women, 51 men) aged 27-95 years, with choroidal nevus were included to the research. Routine ophthalmoscopic(More)
Twenty four patients with retinal pigment dystrophy were subjected to examination of pupillary reaction. Evaluated was the amplitude of pupillary reaction on a standard light flash. The results received were compared with the field changes. It was noted that the amplitude is diminished depending on the changes in the visual field.
