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)
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)
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)
Angioid streaks develop as a result of damage to the Bruch's membrane. They may occur as idiopatic angioid streaks or in association with pseudoxanthoma elasticum, Paget's disease and the haemoglobinopathies. Other pathologies of the fundus of eye may coexist together with angioid streaks, such as drusen of an optic disc and granular-like retina in… (More)
PURPOSE The aim of this study was a clinical analysis of patients with symptoms typical of pemphigoid. MATERIAL AND METHODS 21 patients were enrolled on the study within the period 1988-2004. The frequency and type of ophthalmological and extraocular symptoms and accompanying diseases were assessed. The analysis also contains immunological findings as… (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.
Presented are the results of a 3 years long observation of the pupillary reaction in patients with pigmentary retinal dystrophy who have been subjected to a complex treatment. The authors discovered a consistency between the changes in the visual field and the amplitude of the pupillary reaction.
The pupillary diameter was checked in illumination of various intensity in 20 patients with unilateral retinal detachment. The healthy and the diseased eye were examined separately. The authors discovered a latent anisocoria the amount of which was dependent on the condition of the macular area and on the extent of the detachment.
