OBJECTIVE To describe the incidence and outcomes of endophthalmitis after intravitreal injections of anti-vascular endothelial growth factor agents in the Comparison of Age-Related Macular Degeneration Treatments Trials (CATT) and to assess the effect of prophylactic topical antimicrobials on incidence. DESIGN Cohort study within a randomized clinical… (More)
AIMS To evaluate the presence of cognitive bias among retinal specialists when recommending treatment options for cystoid macular oedema (CMO) secondary to retinal vein occlusion (RVO). METHODS Two randomly chosen samples of retina specialists were surveyed regarding their treatment and dosing regimen choices among three antivascular endothelial growth… (More)
An improved solution to the mechanics-based mathematical model for retinal detachment developed by Bottega et al. (2013, Math. Med. Biol., 30, 287-310) is found by removing the simplifying assumption of negligible meridian displacement employed in that study. The model considers retinas with and without central tears and takes contraction of the vitreous… (More)
A patient displayed a pink mass on the right optic disc and normal visual function that was diagnosed as a capillary hemangioma. Seven months later, he developed typical features of nonarteritic anterior ischemic optic neuropathy (NAION) in that eye. Such a long latency between "preeruptive" and "eruptive" disc edema has not been well documented in NAION.
