UNLABELLED PUPOSE: The purpose of this study was to compare the biomechanical properties of the cornea and intraocular pressure (IOP) between patients with systemic lupus erythematosis (SLE) and age-matched controls. PATIENTS AND METHODS In this prospective study, 30 healthy individuals (control group) and 30 patients with SLE (study group) underwent(More)
PURPOSE To compare the effects of straight, oblique, and double-plane tunnel scleral intravitreal injection techniques, on short-term intraocular pressure (IOP) changes, occurrence of vitreous reflux (VR), and/or other complications. METHODS A total of 105 patients were included in this prospective study. Patients were assigned randomly to one of the(More)
PURPOSE Idiopathic and diabetic epiretinal membranes (ERMs) differ significantly in terms of macular morphology. Our aim was to compare the photoreceptor outer segment (PROS) length in diabetic and idiopathic ERMs before and after surgery. METHODS Fifty-two eyes of 50 patients who underwent pars plana vitrectomy (PPV) due to idiopathic and diabetic ERMs(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the efficacy and safety of silicone oil barrier sutures in aphakic eyes with iris defects. METHODS Sixteen aphakic and iris-defective eyes of 16 patients who underwent a pars plana vitrectomy procedure with silicone oil tamponade because of retinal detachment were included in this retrospective study. Silicone oil barrier sutures were(More)
To compare the effect of a single intravitreal injection of triamcinolone acetonide versus three consecutive monthly intravitreal injections of bevacizumab for the treatment of diabetic macular edema (DME). Forty patients treated with a single intravitreal injection of 4 mg triamcinolone acetonide (triamcinolone group) were compared with 40 patients treated(More)
PURPOSE Our aim was to evaluate the alterations of subfoveal choroidal thickness (SFCT), photoreceptor layer thickness (PRT), and retinal vessel diameter in the dark and light adaptation. METHODS Twenty-four eyes of 24 healthy volunteers (12 males, 12 females) were included in this cross-sectional and observational study. The SFCT, PRT, retinal arteriole,(More)
