PURPOSE To assess changes in choroidal thickness in type 2 diabetic patients with diabetic retinopathy (DR) and diabetic macular edema (DME) using enhanced-depth imaging spectral domain optical coherence tomography (EDI-OCT). METHODS Among 235 eyes from 145 patients, 195 treatment-naïve eyes were divided into no DR, mild/moderate nonproliferative DR(More)
OBJECTIVE To review the epidemiology and prognostic factors related to visual outcome after open globe injuries. METHODS A retrospective case review during a 14-year period. RESULTS The study was based on a sample of 321 patients (321 eyes) with open globe injuries. Gender of the sample was predominantly male (76.6%) and the average age was 38.8 years.(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the efficacy and safety of intravitreal bevacizumab for polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy (PCV). METHODS In this retrospective interventional pilot study, 12 eyes of 11 patients with active PCV were treated with intravitreal bevacizumab (1.25 mg) alone or in combination with photodynamic therapy (PDT) depending on the informed(More)
PURPOSE To identify changes in the clinical features, management, and prognostic factors of endogenous endophthalmitis in Korea from 1996 through 2010. METHODS We conducted a retrospective review of medical records of patients diagnosed with endogenous endophthalmitis from January 1996 to December 2010, which was divided into 3 periods: 1996 to 2000, 2001(More)
PURPOSE To determine the efficacy of 1 intravitreal bevacizumab injection followed by pro re nata (1 + PRN) injection in cases of subfoveal myopic choroidal neovascularization (CNV) and to identify CNV-recurrence-related prognostic factors. DESIGN Retrospective observational case series. METHODS In total, 103 eyes of 89 consecutive naive patients who(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the incidence of and risk factors for the development of diabetic retinopathy (DR) and progression to proliferative DR (PDR) in Korean patients. Patients diagnosed with type 2 diabetes and followed for more than 5 years at a university-based clinic since 2000 were consecutively enrolled in this retrospective cohort(More)
Ethambutol, an efficacious antituberculosis agent, can cause irreversible visual loss in a small but significant fraction of patients. However, the mechanism of ocular toxicity remains to be established. We previously reported that ethambutol caused severe vacuole formation in cultured retinal cells, and that the addition of zinc along with ethambutol(More)
PURPOSE To investigate correlations between preoperative and postoperative foveal microstructures in patients with macula-off rhegmatogenous retinal detachment (RRD). METHODS We reviewed the records of 31 eyes from 31 patients with macula-off RRD who had undergone successful re-attachment surgery. We analyzed data obtained from complete ophthalmologic(More)
PURPOSE To compare the outcomes of treatment with intravitreal bevacizumab alone (BEVA group) or in combination with photodynamic therapy (PDT) (COMB group), in patients aged at least 50 years with neovascular maculopathy. METHODS Forty-one patients with neovascular age-related macular degeneration (AMD) (n = 31) or polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy (PCV)(More)
To describe the demographics, clinical characteristics, and treatment outcomes in patients with primary CNS lymphoma (PCNSL) with ocular involvement. A retrospective chart review was conducted on 61 patients who were diagnosed with PCNSL from January 2000 to October 2008 at the Asan Medical Center, Seoul, Korea.
