To compare autofluorescence (AF) findings using wide-field (Optomap) and conventional (HRA-AF) confocal scanning laser ophthalmoscopy (cSLO) systems in patients with central serous chorioretinopathy (CSC), and to investigate the correlations between AF findings and functional and anatomical status. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) and AF images were(More)
UNLABELLED We describe a new technique of scleral fixation for the management of dislocated intraocular lenses (IOL). A suture is tied inside the eye around the dislocated haptic to prevent slippage of the IOL after surgery. The technique, which is safe and less invasive than previous methods, was used in 3 patients and the results are presented. (More)
PURPOSE To investigate the relationship between the choroidal thicknesses of eyes of patients with age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and the outcomes of intravitreal ranibizumab injection. METHODS We reviewed the medical records of 141 consecutive eyes (80 with typical neovascular AMD and 61 with polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy [PCV]) treated by(More)
AIM Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) is a risk factor for increased arterial stiffness. We evaluated associations between the cardio-ankle vascular index (CAVI) and carotid plaque, intima media thickness (IMT), and diabetic microvascular complications in Korean T2DM patients. METHODS We conducted a retrospective, cross-sectional study of 320 Korean T2DM(More)
BACKGROUND To compare the anatomic and functional results between optical coherence tomography (OCT)-guided selective focal laser photocoagulation (OCT-laser) and conventional modified Early Treatment Diabetic Retinopathy Study (mETDRS) laser treatment for diabetic macular edema (DME). METHODS We analyzed treatment outcomes in 47 consecutive eyes treated(More)
PURPOSE To compare preoperative and postoperative ocular biometry in patients with iris-fixated phakic intraocular lens (pIOLs): Artisan and Artiflex. MATERIALS AND METHODS This study included 40 eyes with Artisan and 36 eyes with Artiflex pIOL implants. Anterior chamber depth (ACD) and axial length (AL) were measured by applanation ultrasonography(More)
PURPOSE To compare the treatment outcomes of a combination of pneumatic displacement and intravitreal anti-vascular endothelial growth factor, and anti-vascular endothelial growth factor monotherapy for submacular hemorrhage resulting from exudative age-related macular degeneration. DESIGN Retrospective, comparative, interventional case series. METHODS(More)
OBJECTIVES This study was performed to examine the influence of smoking on the blood cadmium concentration in university students. METHODS The study included 300 university students. A questionnaire interview was used to collect data. The urine cotinine and blood cadmium levels were measured as biological exposure indices. The data were analyzed using(More)
PURPOSE To compare changes in ocular higher order aberrations (HOAs) after Visian Implantable Collamer Lens (ICL, STAAR Surgical Co) implantation and wavefront-guided laser epithelial keratomileusis (WFG-LASEK) to correct high myopia. METHODS This prospective case series comprised 30 eyes (18 patients) that underwent ICL implantation (ICL group) and 33(More)
Ocular features associated with trisomy 4p have rarely been described. The authors have experienced multiple ocular abnormalities (bilateral cataracts, posterior synechiae, and posterior segment changes) associated with this chromosomal abnormality. It was presumed that these intraocular findings might be associated with the previous inflammatory process.(More)
