This study aimed to investigate the effect of reading and near work on myopic development in emmetropic boys in school age. It involved totally 114 children in two groups. Right eyes of 67 randomly selected students (mean age=12.93) with mean 6 h of reading and near work (Group 1) were compared with the right eyes of 47 apprentices (mean age=12.96) working(More)
A 15-year-old boy had temporary hypertropia, supraduction deficit, ipsilateral mydriasis, and accommodative paresis after bilateral endoscopic ethmoidectomy, bilateral partial inferior turbinectomy, septoplasty, and Caldwell-Luc procedures for chronic sinusitis. Postoperative imaging did not disclose any intra-orbital abnormalities. The patient was treated(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the effect of limbal relaxing incisions (LRIs) in the treatment of primary mixed astigmatism and mixed astigmatism after cataract surgery. SETTING Department of Ophthalmology, Inönü University, Malatya, Turkey. METHODS Limbal relaxing incisions were performed to correct astigmatism in 37 eyes of 26 patients with mixed astigmatism.(More)
PURPOSE To assess whether caffeic acid phenethyl ester (CAPE) prevents posterior capsule opacification (PCO) by suppressing the transformation of the lens epithelial cells. SETTING Departments of Ophthalmology, Chemistry, and Pathology, Turgut Ozal Medical Center, University of Inonu, Malatya, Turkey. METHODS Twenty pigmented island rabbits having(More)
To determine whether convergence rather than accommodation has a primary effect on the changes in axial length and other biometric components during near fixation, we measured the anterior chamber depth, lens thickness, vitreous length and axial length in the right eyes of 124 young male subjects while their left eyes focused at distance (6 m) and near (20(More)
BACKGROUND To evaluate the refractive results of sulcus-fixated polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) posterior chamber intraocular lenses (PC IOLs) after cataract surgery with and without posterior capsule complications. METHODS The charts of patients who had undergone cataract surgery were reviewed, and eyes that had received sulcus-fixated PMMA PC IOLs were(More)
PURPOSE To assess and compare the results of primary and secondary implantation of flexible open-loop anterior chamber intraocular lenses (AC-IOLs). METHODS A series of 57 eyes of 56 patients with flexible AC-IOLs were reviewed in two groups. In group I (n = 35) an AC-IOL was implanted primarily, because of posterior capsule problems during extracapsular(More)
In this study, we aimed to investigate ocular manifestations in patients with vitiligo. Sixty-one patients with vitiligo were included in the study. From the patients who referred for examination to the dermatology and ophthalmology clinic, 57 patients without any systemic disease were taken as the control group. In both groups, otorefractometry,(More)
