PURPOSE To characterize retinal metabolism during normoxia and hyperoxia in healthy subjects. METHODS Forty-six healthy subjects were included in the present study, and data of 41 subjects could be evaluated. Retinal vessel diameters, as well as oxygen saturation in arteries and veins, were measured using the Dynamic Vessel Analyzer. In addition, retinal(More)
PURPOSE The complement factor H (CFH) tyrosine 402 histidine (Y402H, rs1061170) variant is known to be significantly associated with age-related macular degeneration (AMD). Whether this genetic variant may impact retinal blood flow regulation is largely unknown. This study investigated whether flicker-induced vasodilation, an indicator for the coupling(More)
PURPOSE The Age-Related Eye Disease Study 1 (AREDS 1) has shown that nutritional supplementation with antioxidants and zinc modifies the natural course of AMD. It is presumed that the supplements exert their beneficial effects by ameliorating oxidative stress due to the scavenging of reactive oxygen species (ROS). We have shown in a human model that under(More)
AIM In the present study the response of optic nerve head blood flow to an increase in ocular perfusion pressure during isometric exercise was studied. Based on our previous studies we hypothesized that subjects with an abnormal blood flow response, defined as a decrease in blood flow of more than 10% during or after isometric exercise, could be identified.(More)
PURPOSE To indicate the usefulness of modern neurosurgical techniques to remove intraorbital foreign bodies, not removed during primary ophthalmological surgical intervention. PATIENT 1: A 29-year-old man, struck with a bottle, with a piece of glass located at the top of the right orbit. During the primary ophthalmological intervention--orbitotomy accessed(More)
