PURPOSE Peripheral cone dystrophy is a subgroup of cone dystrophy, and only 4 cases have been reported. We present a patient with unilateral peripheral cone dysfunction and report the functional changes determined by electrophysiological tests and ultrastructural changes determined by spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT). CASE A(More)
Intravitreal injections (IVI) have become a part of daily practice for a growing number of procedures. We evaluated the retinal function by recording intraoperative photopic electroretinograms (ERGs) before an injection (T1), just after the injection (T2), and after the aspiration of the anterior chamber fluid (T3) of 19 eyes of 19 patients (mean age 70.6(More)
Scleral indentation is widely used to examine the peripheral fundus, however it can increase the intraocular pressure (IOP) to high levels which can then affect retinal function. We evaluated the effects of scleral indentation on the macular function electrophysiologically. Intraoperative focal macular electroretinograms (iFMERGs) were recorded with and(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate retinal function by intraoperative electroretinograms (ERGs) before and after core vitrectomy. DESIGN Retrospective consecutive case series. METHOD Full-field photopic ERGs were recorded prior to the beginning and just after core vitrectomy using a sterilized contact lens electrode in 20 eyes that underwent non-complicated vitreous(More)
Background. To report the outcome of pars plana vitrectomy (PPV) combined with intraoperative endolaser focal photocoagulation (PC) on eyes with idiopathic macular telangiectasis (MacTel) type 1. Methods. This was a retrospective study of two female patients with MacTel type 1 who were resistant to focal photocoagulation, sub-Tenon triamcinolone injection,(More)
PURPOSE To report a case of a ruptured eye with a suprachoroidal hemorrhage (SCH) in which tissue plasminogen activator (tPA)-assisted vitrectomy was successful in reconstructing the globe and restoring good vision. CASE A 32-year-old man was struck on the right eye by a surfboard. His eye was ruptured and his visual acuity decreased to hand movements.(More)
