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)
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)
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)
Visual field defect is a major indication for surgery of pituitary adenoma, but visual outcome after surgery is difficult to predict. We developed a nomogram that predicts postoperative restoration of visual field defects in patients with pituitary adenoma. This study was a retrospective cohort investigation of patients who were treated for pituitary(More)
PURPOSE To compare the accuracy of central true net corneal power (cTNP) and mean true net corneal power (mTNP) of the Pentacam system to give a keratometry (K) reading for calculating IOL (intraocular lens) power in eyes following refractive surgery. METHODS Refraction, an automated K-reading (Km), cTNP and mTNP were measured for 15 eyes that required(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 treatment outcome of pneumatic displacement and intravitreal anti-vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) for submacular hemorrhage (SMH) from exudative age-related macular degeneration (AMD). METHODS Best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA) and central foveal thickness (CFT) were measured at baseline and at 1, 3, and 6 months(More)
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). We analyzed treatment outcomes in 47 consecutive eyes treated with OCT–laser(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)
