PURPOSE To describe optical coherence tomography findings in patients with late solar retinopathy and their association with visual loss. METHODS Twenty-one eyes of 21 patients who had a history of watching a solar eclipse in 1999 with or without visual loss were evaluated with colored and red-free fundus photography and optical coherence tomography(More)
To evaluate the effectiveness of an intravitreal bevacizumab injection on retinal neovascularization and diabetic macular edema (DME) refractory to laser photocoagulation therapy. Thirty-four eyes of 22 patients with proliferative diabetic retinopathy and DME refractory to laser photocoagulation therapy received an intravitreal injection of 1.25 mg/0.05 ml(More)
Photorefractive devices have been evaluated for their effectiveness in detecting anisometropia, hyperopia, myopia, and astigmatism. We investigated the reliability of Plusoptix S08, the newest photoscreener, and Topcon autorefractometer by comparing them with cycloplegic retinoscopy. Plusoptix S08, cycloplegic retinoscopy, and cycloplegic autorefractometer(More)
Purpose. To report a case of medication-resistant acanthamoeba keratitis (AK) treated successfully by corneal crosslinking (CXL). Methods. A 26-year-old male with medication-resistant AK underwent a standard CXL procedure with local anesthesia, followed by central corneal epithelial debridement, application of riboflavin 0.1%, and UV-A irradiation. Results.(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this study was to evaluate changes in ocular surface and tear function parameters in chronic hepatitis C at initial stages of hepatic fibrosis. METHODS Thirty-one patients with biopsy-proven chronic hepatitis C and 31 age- and sex-matched healthy control subjects without systemic hepatitis C infection were examined with the Ocular(More)
Third-generation optical coherence tomography (StratusOCT) images of 2 female siblings with hypermetropia, microphthalmos, and papillomacular retinal fold are described. These cases suggest the possibility of genetic transmission or predisposition and show that the resulting StratusOCT images can be nearly identical.
PURPOSE We report a case of herpetic epithelial keratitis that developed after intravitreal triamcinolone acetonide injection. METHODS An 81-year-old man with diabetes with severe nonproliferative diabetic retinopathy and diffuse macular edema in both eyes received bilateral intravitreal injections of 0.4 mg/0.1 mL of triamcinolone acetonide. RESULTS(More)
PURPOSE To report a case of choroidal neovascularization (CNV) in a patient with cone dystrophy (CD). METHODS Case report. RESULTS A 20-year-old woman presented with diminished vision in her right eye. Fundus examination showed perifoveal retinal pigment epithelial changes and retinal hemorrhage consistent with subretinal CNV in the right eye, and mild(More)
