BACKGROUND Chronic central serous chorioretinopathy (CCSC) can result in permanent loss of vision. Unfortunately, many cases of CCSC are not eligible or do not respond to treatment with thermal laser or photodynamic therapy. Glucocorticoids have been implicated in the pathogenesis of central serous chorioretinopathy. Mifepristone, an oral glucocorticoid(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate macular thickness in people with diabetes but minimal or no retinopathy using Heidelberg Spectralis optical coherence tomography (OCT). METHODS In a multicenter, cross-sectional study of mean retinal thickness, on Spectralis OCT in the nine standard OCT subfields, spanning a zone with 6-mm diameter, center point, and total retinal(More)
IMPORTANCE Optimization of glycemic control is critical to reduce the number of diabetes mellitus-related complications, but long-term success is challenging. Although vision loss is among the greatest fears of individuals with diabetes, comprehensive personalized diabetes education and risk assessments are not consistently used in ophthalmologic settings.(More)
Nontuberculous mycobacterial (NTM) infections have become increasingly important in ophthalmology, particularly with keratorefractive surgery. We report a case of scleral buckle associated NTM scleritis occurring in a 69-year-old male after silicone sponge explant removal. Purulent scleral ulceration with nodule formation persisted despite topical(More)
BACKGROUND Intravitreal anti-vascular endothelial growth factor (anti-VEGF) therapy is beneficial in treating choroidal neovascularization from age-related macular degeneration, but few long-term studies have shown its efficacy in choroidal neovascularization from ocular histoplasmosis syndrome. Intravitreal anti-VEGF therapy may be effective in cases of(More)
PURPOSE To describe multimodal imaging findings in patients with dark or white without pressure lesions of the fundus. METHODS Retrospective observational case series of 10 patients with white or dark without pressure lesions. We analyzed multimodal imaging using spectral domain optical coherence tomography, color and near-infrared fundus photography, and(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this report is to present a case of hepatotoxicity secondary to off-label rifampin therapy for the treatment of chronic central serous choroidopathy. METHODS Case report. RESULTS A patient with chronic central serous chorioretinopathy was treated with oral rifampin. Three weeks after the initiation of therapy, fatigue, nausea, and(More)
BACKGROUND Interferon-associated retinopathy is a rare complication of interferon treatment. It has been well described with the use of interferon-α. METHODS This study reports a retrospective case series of interferon-β-associated retinopathy in three patients that were being treated for multiple sclerosis. RESULTS All cases were characterized by(More)
