PURPOSE Observations made during glaucoma filtering surgery (trabeculectomy) suggest variability in the thickness of the bulbar conjunctiva and Tenon's layers between individuals. We propose that this could infuence the final bleb morphology and function. We designed a pilot study to assess this using optical coherence tomography (OCT) to measure bulbar(More)
Congenital tarsal kink syndrome is a rare type of upper eyelid entropion associated with keratitis due to trichiasis. The authors describe a new technique for treatment of congenital horizontal tarsal kink syndrome by means of absorbable everting sutures via a posterior approach. A neonate was referred to eye clinic with right eye redness and corneal(More)
To report a case of juxtafoveal choroidal neovascularization in a patient with candida chorioretinitis successfully treated with intravitreal bevacizumab. Case report. A 45-year-old woman previously treated for candida chorioretinitis was presented with reduced vision in the left eye. The patient was investigated with ophthalmoscopy, fluorescein(More)
PURPOSE To report an unusual case of bilateral choroidal folds related to multiple myeloma. METHODS In this case report, fundus photography, fundus fluorescein angiography, fundus autofluorescence, and B-ultrasonography were used to assess posterior segment changes. RESULTS A 55-year-old woman with history of multiple myeloma was found to have abnormal(More)
PURPOSE To describe a new, simple, quick, and minimally invasive surgical technique for managing medial canthal tendon laxity. METHODS The technique works by creating a directed posterior lamellar scar. Sutures are preplaced in firm medial canthal tissue, and a triangular diathermy burn is made between this fixation point and the medial tarsal plate(More)
PURPOSE To report a case of acute bilateral central serous retinopathy associated with deferoxamine therapy in the context of paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria. METHODS Spectral-domain optical coherence tomography and fundus autofluorescence were used to investigate posterior segment changes. RESULTS A 76-year-old man with paroxysmal nocturnal(More)
