OBJECTIVE To evaluate changes in the macular thickness and volume using optical coherence tomography in patients after phacoemulsification and intracapsular implantation of a foldable intraocular lens. MATERIALS AND METHODS The study included 82 patients (37 males and 45 females) after phacoemulsification and intracapsular implantaion of the same type of(More)
Ocular cicatricial pemphigoid (OCP) is an autoimmune disease characterize by mucous membrane fibrosis and skin changes resulting with scarring. The pathogenic mechanisms of ocular cicatricial pemphigoid are incompletely understood. Antibasement membrane antibodies which lead to subepithelial blistering, granulation tissue and inflammatory infiltrate(More)
BACKGROUND Endophthalmitis is potentially devastating intraocular inflammation following eye trauma or surgery. We describe the visual outcomes and causative pathogens in acute bacterial postoperative and posttraumatic endophthalmitis treated with immediate pars plana vitrectomy (PPV) with Vancomycin dissolved in the infusion fluid. METHODS Clinical(More)
BACKGROUND Several techniques for fixation of the posterior chamber intraocular lens (IOL) have been developed. We evaluate long-term functional outcomes and safety of posterior chamber IOL implantation using Hoffman scleral haptic fixation and sutureless Sharioth technique in patients with posttraumatic and postoperative aphakia. METHODS This(More)
Purpose. To evaluate the indications, refraction, and visual and safety outcomes of iris-claw intraocular lens implanted retropupillary with sutureless technique during primary or secondary operation. Methods. Retrospective study of case series. The Haigis formula was used to calculate intraocular lens power. In all cases the wound was closed without(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the utility of the optical coherence tomography (OCT) in diagnosing, differentiating and monitoring of choroidal nevi situated in the posterior pole and optic disc area. MATERIAL AND METHOD 116 consecutive patients (65 women, 51 men) aged 27-95 years, with choroidal nevus were included to the research. Routine ophthalmoscopic(More)
Purpose. To evaluate functional and anatomical results of pars plana vitrectomy (PPV) in the retinal detachment (RD) followed by severe eye trauma. Methods. Retrospective analysis of medical records of forty-one consecutive patients treated with 23-gauge PPV due to traumatic RD. Age, gender, timing of PPV, visual acuity, and presence of intraocular foreign(More)
Purpose. To evaluate longitudinal functional and anatomical results after combined pars plana vitrectomy (PPV) and penetrating keratoplasty (PKP) using a wide-field Landers intraoperative temporary keratoprosthesis (TKP) in patients with vitreoretinal pathology and corneal opacity due to severe ocular trauma. Material and Methods. Medical records of 12(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to assess the clinical course and distinctive features of different white dot syndromes (WDS) in patients attending the Ophthalmology Department, Medical University of Warsaw in the years 1995-2015. MATERIAL AND METHODS Sixty-two (62) patients (43 females and 19 males), aged 18 to 77 years, referred with a WDS were(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of the study was the analysis of ophthalmologic disorders in children born to mothers after liver transplantation (LTx) or renal transplantation (RTx) with the assessment of certain neonatal parameters. METHODS In the period between 01 January 2010 and 30 June 2012, ophthalmologic examinations were performed in 37 children born to(More)
