PURPOSE To evaluate the safety and efficacy of intravitreal dexamethasone implant (Ozurdex) in patients with chronic diabetic macular edema (DME) resistant to prior intravitreal bevacizumab (IVB) treatment. MATERIALS AND METHODS Thirty eyes of 30 patients were administered intravitreal Ozurdex and examined at baseline and 1, 3, and 6 months postinjection(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the choroidal thickness (CT) in hyperopic anisometropic amblyopic eyes, fellow non-amblyopic eyes, and age-matched normal eyes, using spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT). MATERIALS AND METHODS In total 53 subjects (17.8 ± 11.0 years, mean ± SD) with hyperopic anisometropic amblyopia (AE) and 53 age-matched controls(More)
BACKGROUND To evaluate the potential efficacy and safety of inner limiting membrane (ILM) staining with brilliant blue G (BBG) under air infusion. METHODS 63 patients, treated by one surgeon with macular hole or idiopathic epiretinal membrane were evaluated prospectively. BBG was applied under air infusion in 38 patients (group 1), and injected into the(More)
PURPOSE To investigate the association between central choroidal thickness (CT), axial length (AL), age, gender, and refractive error in a healthy pediatric population using optical coherence tomography (OCT). METHODS This institutional study involved 137 healthy children (57 boys, 80 girls) aged between 4 and 18 years. Each child underwent a dilated eye(More)
PURPOSE To identify the distribution, variation, and determinants of ganglion cell-inner plexiform layer (GC-IPL) thickness in healthy Turkish children measured by high-definition optical coherence tomography (HD-OCT). PATIENTS AND METHODS This institutional study involved 296 eyes from 296 healthy children aged between 3 and 17 years. Each child(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the repeatability and agreement of the anterior segment measurements obtained using the Galilei dual Scheimpflug analyzer (Galilei DSA; Ziemer) and Nidek AL Scan (Nidek CO, Aichi, Japan) biometry in keratoconic and normal eyes. METHODS Three consecutive measurements were performed by the same examiner using both devices in 62 healthy(More)
PURPOSE To determine the normative database of macular and retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thickness parameters in healthy Turkish children by OCT. METHODS 318 eyes of 318 children (138 boys, 183 girls) aged between 3 and 17 years were evaluated. The children were scanned by Cirrus HD-OCT (Carl Zeiss Meditec) to measure the macula, RNFL, and optic nerve(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the changes of anterior segment parameters following the topical instillation of cyclopentolate hydrochloride 1% with the Galilei dual-Scheimpflug analyzer (GSA) (Ziemer Ophthalmology Co., Port, Switzerland) in healthy children. METHODS Fifty children (29 boys, 21 girls) were evaluated before and 60 minutes after instillation of three(More)
PurposeThe aim of this study is to evaluate the ocular pulse amplitude (OPA) and choroidal thickness (CT) measurements in patients with diabetic macular edema (DME) and healthy subjects.MethodsA total of 34 patients (12 male and 22 female) who had type 2 diabetes mellitus with DME and 34 sex-matched healthy subjects (13 male and 21 female) were included in(More)
