BACKGROUND Torpedo maculopathy is a rare condition with a twofold clinical significance. Firstly, it is a differential of atypical congenital hypertrophy of the retinal pigment epithelium. Secondly, visual field loss has been reported. We demonstrate the spectrum of structural abnormality of torpedo maculopathy as seen on optical coherence tomography, and(More)
PURPOSE To investigate ocular complications arising from nephrotic syndrome and/or its treatments in children. METHODS A cross-sectional study was conducted in a teaching hospital. A total of 31 paediatric patients with nephrotic syndrome were studied. Comprehensive ophthalmic assessments on best-corrected visual acuity, intraocular pressure, slit-lamp(More)
BACKGROUND Our aim is to compare retinal sensitivity measurements obtained on two microperimeters: the CenterVue MAIA and the Nidek MP-1. DESIGN A prospective study was conducted in a private ophthalmology clinic. PARTICIPANTS Seventeen individuals with a range of stable macular function were recruited as participants. METHODS Microperimetry in one(More)
PURPOSE To report factors influencing the relationship between visual acuity (VA) fractions measured on Snellen chart and letter scores on the Early Treatment Diabetic Retinopathy Study (ETDRS) chart. DESIGN This was a retrospective review from a single ophthalmology outpatient clinic. METHODS All patients had routine consecutive VA testing in the right(More)
PURPOSE To investigate the intersession test-retest variability (TRV) of topography- and threshold-based parameters derived from the Nidek MP-1. DESIGN Prospective observational study. METHODS Sixteen participants with and without central scotoma underwent microperimetry in one eye over three sessions at 1-month intervals in a single institution. We(More)
BACKGROUND To determine the impact of retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) pathology on intersession repeatability of retinal thickness and volume metrics derived from Spectralis spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (Heidelberg Engineering, Heidelberg, Germany). DESIGN Prospective cross-sectional single centre study. PARTICIPANTS A total of 56 eyes(More)
PURPOSE To determine the intersession test-retest variability (TRV) of CenterVue Macular Integrity Assessment (MAIA) microperimeter in glaucoma patients with fixation-threatening field defects. METHODS This is a prospective case-control study of 27 participants consisting of 13 patients with stable primary open-angle glaucoma and 14 control subjects(More)
