PURPOSE To compare the outcomes of implantation of 2 models of intrastromal corneal ring segments (ICRS) to manage keratoconus. SETTING Kartal Training and Research Hospital, Istanbul, Turkey. METHODS This study evaluated eyes with keratoconus that had implantation of Keraring ICRS (Group A) or Intacs ICRS (Group B). The corneal tunnels were created(More)
PURPOSE To compare the outcomes of mechanical and femtosecond laser-assisted tunnel creation for intrastromal corneal ring segment (ICRS) implantation in eyes with keratoconus. SETTING Kartal Training and Research Hospital, Istanbul, Turkey. METHODS In this prospective study, consecutive eyes with keratoconus were randomly assigned to have ICRS tunnel(More)
BACKGROUND To evaluate the average, minimum, and 6-sectoral macular ganglion cell-inner plexiform layer (GC-IPL) thickness measured by spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) in patients with Parkinson disease (PD), as well as average and 4-sectoral retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thickness and to determine whether thickness parameters are(More)
To evaluate the 3-year clinical outcomes after toric implantable collamer lens (ICL) implantation for the management of moderate to high myopic astigmatism. Thirty-four eyes of 20 patients who underwent toric ICL implantation were reviewed. All eyes completed 3-year follow-up. Uncorrected (UDVA) and corrected (CDVA) distance LogMAR visual acuities,(More)
PURPOSE To compare astigmatic keratotomy (AK) outcomes in high astigmatism after deep anterior lamellar keratoplasty (DALK) and after penetrating keratoplasty (PK) in keratoconus patients. DESIGN Prospective, comparative, interventional case series. METHODS This study comprised 20 eyes that underwent DALK and 24 eyes that underwent PK. After suture(More)
PURPOSE To describe the ocular involvement of patients with familial Mediterranean fever (FMF) followed in a tertiary referral center. METHODS The data of 6 patients with FMF were retrospectively reviewed. Detailed ophthalmologic examinations, type of inflammation, course of the disease, number of recurrences, treatment regimens, complications, and(More)
PURPOSE To provide an overview of the visual outcomes after pediatric refractive surgery in anisometropic amblyopia and to analyze the relationship of these outcomes with age and type of refractive surgery. METHODS Systematic searches in PubMed, Embase, and Web of Science databases without data restrictions and a search by surveillance of the literature(More)
PURPOSE To compare the status of corneal endothelium and central corneal thickness within the first four postoperative years after deep anterior lamellar keratoplasty (DALK) and penetrating keratoplasty (PK) in patients with keratoconus. MATERIALS AND METHODS Thirty-nine eyes (Group A) which had PK and 44 eyes (Group B) which had DALK for the treatment of(More)
AIM To investigate the association of serum glucocorticoid kinase gene-1 (SGK-1) DNA variants with chronic central serous chorioretinopathy (CSC). METHODS We enrolled 32 eyes of 32 patients who were diagnosed with chronic CSC and composed 32 normal eyes as a control group. Peripheral blood was used for DNA extraction and polymerase chain reaction (PCR)(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the safety and efficacy of intrastromal corneal ring segment implantation using both mechanical and femtosecond-assisted tunnel creation for the treatment of patients with keratoconus. METHODS A retrospective noncomparative interventional study including 96 eyes of 75 patients with keratoconus. All patients had contact lens intolerance(More)
