BACKGROUND The purpose of this study is to report the efficacy of azithromycin 1.5% eye drops in children with ocular rosacea and phlyctenular blepharokeratoconjunctivitis. This retrospective study from January 2009 to March 2010 included 16 children treated with lid hygiene plus azithromycin 1.5% eye drops (Azyter®): 3-day treatments (1 drop twice a day)(More)
PURPOSE Our study aimed at investigating the extent to which saccadic eye movements are disrupted in patients with primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG). This approach followed upon the discovery of differences in the eye-movement behavior of POAG patients during the exploration of complex visual scenes. METHODS The eye movements of 8 POAG patients and 4(More)
The authors report a case of one patient from a family carrying the homoplasmic Leber hereditary optic neuropathy (LHON) G11778A mitochondrial DNA mutation with papilloedema 9 months prior to the acute stage of LHON and still present at the onset of visual loss. During the vision loss, the MRI demonstrated a T2 hyperintensity and an enhancement of the(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS To compare the efficacy and safety of intracameral (IC) administration at the beginning of cataract surgery, of Mydrane, a standardised ophthalmic combination of tropicamide 0.02%, phenylephrine 0.31% and lidocaine 1%, to a standard topical regimen. METHODS In this international phase III, prospective, randomised study, the selected eye of(More)
PURPOSE To assess corneal epithelial cell survival after keratoplasty. METHODS Corneal impression cytology (CIC) was performed on sex-mismatched corneal transplants. Fluorescent in situ hybridization (FISH) with sex chromosome-specific probes was performed to identify epithelial cell mosaicism and therefore allocate the donor or recipient origin of the(More)
INTRODUCTION Bilateral optic disc drusen can mimic papilledema, raising the question of intracranial hypertension and sometimes prompting unnecessary or invasive procedures. STATE OF THE ART AND PERSPECTIVES Optic disc drusen are benign calcified masses, often visible within the optic nerve head. However, their clinical diagnosis can be more difficult at(More)
We retrospectively reviewed the results of surgery in 27 cases of retinal detachment related to viral necrotising retinitis in acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS). Vitrectomy and silicone oil tamponade were performed in all cases. Scleral buckling was applied to 9 eyes. Silicone oil was left in the eye in all cases. Mean follow-up period was 13(More)
Purpose To evaluate morphological changes after induction of cell death in cultured monkey retinal pigment epithelial (RPE) cells by W irradiation, starvation and treatment with a peptide derived from the C.elegans ted-4 protein. Methods SYTO live cell nucleic acid stain kit, LIVE/DEAD EukoLight viability/cytotoxicity kit, T7 polymerase DNA fragmentation(More)
