PURPOSE To investigate why myotonic dystrophy type 1 (DM1) patients have low intraocular pressure (IOP). DESIGN Prospective, comparative case series. PARTICIPANTS One hundred two eyes of 51 patients with DM1 (age range, 21-64 years) and 44 eyes of 22 healthy subjects of similar age (21-64 years). METHODS All participants underwent IOP measurement with(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate a large series of patients affected by high myopia using multiplanar imaging provided by en face optical coherence tomography (OCT). DESIGN Observational cross-sectional study. METHODS En face OCT longitudinal cross-sectional B scans and coronal C scans were obtained in 200 eyes of 100 patients with myopia greater than -6 diopters(More)
BACKGROUND In vitreomacular traction syndrome, an incomplete vitreous detachment with persistent vitreous traction on the macula is present. This condition may determine formation of epiretinal membranes, macular puckering, macular oedema, and traction macular detachment. Recently introduced en face optical coherence tomography (OCT) provides not only(More)
BACKGROUND A newly recognized lesion in pathologic myopia is peripapillary detachment of the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) and retina. Recently introduced en face optical coherence tomography (OCT) provides not only cross-sectional but also coronal scans of the retina, and allows lateral extent visualization and thickness measurement of lesions.

The influence of timolol on aqueous humour production has been well documented, nevertheless it is unknown the real mechanism by which timolol produces this process. We have conceived the hypothesis that any alteration of natrium and kalium content following topical treatment of timolol was the main cause of the lowering rate of aqueous humour production.(More)
