• Purpose: To document the functional outcome of two patients following successful macular translocation for the treatment of severe subretinal hemorrhage in age-related maculopathy. • Methods: The retina was surgically rotated around the optic nerve with translocation of the fovea either upward or downward to an area of healthy retinal pigment epithelium.(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effects of oblique muscle surgery on the large-angle incyclotorsion resulting from macular translocation surgery for severe age-related macular degeneration. METHODS Patients undergoing macular translocation (superiorly) at our institution from May 1996 until November 1998 were included. In the Staged(More)
Between 5% and 25% of patients may experience persistent diplopia after surgery for retinal detachment. The complexity of the presentation poses a distinct challenge to both the retinal and the strabismus surgeon. Careful evaluation to determine factors contributing to the strabismus and assessment of fusional capabilities are essential before treatment. A(More)
PURPOSE We examined the efficacy of intraocular lens implantation (IOL) in children younger than 4 years of age for unilateral aphakic visual rehabilitation. METHODS Twenty-one patients underwent unilateral cataract extraction, IOL placement, posterior capsulotomy, and anterior vitrectomy between 1990 and 1994. Postoperative vision, refractive change, and(More)
The differences in the clinical and diagnostic characteristics of 33 consecutive traumatic unilateral (21 patients, 62%) and bilateral (12 patients, 38%) superior oblique palsies were studied. The unilateral palsies had a large hypertropia in primary position, more vertical than torsional diplopia, a compensatory head tilt to obtain fusion, and a positive(More)
One of the major obstacles in pediatric intraocular lens implantation has been the subsequent dense opacification of the posterior capsule. We used a modification of the standard pediatric cataract surgical procedure, which involved endocapsular cataract extraction, posterior chamber intraocular lens implantation, pars plana posterior capsulotomy, and pars(More)
PURPOSE To assess the effectiveness of vitrectomy for stage V retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) at the authors' institution, 33 patients with ROP who had initially successful total or partial anatomic retinal attachments (51 eyes) were evaluated for visual function and long-term anatomic stability. In addition, this study was an attempt to differentiate(More)
We found dyskinetic strabismus in 66 patients with cerebral palsy. The most striking feature of dyskinetic strabismus is the fluctuation from esotropia to exotropia under the same accommodative conditions with a slow tonic deviation similar to a vergence movement. With increasing age, exodeviation becomes more prevalent. Dyskinetic strabismus is seen(More)
PURPOSE To report results of secondary posterior chamber intraocular lens (IOL) implantation in previously aphakic pediatric patients. METHODS In 19 pediatric patients, 19 aphakic eyes (11 after infantile and eight after traumatic cataract surgery) received secondary sulcus-fixated posterior chamber IOL implants. RESULTS Visual acuity of 20/40 or better(More)
