UNLABELLED Punctate Inner Choroidopathy (PIC) is a rare idiopathic ocular inflammatory disease. It occurs mostly in young, myopic, otherwise healthy women. Symptoms of the disease include acute vision decrease associated with central and paracentral scotoma. In 80% of cases PIC occur bilaterally. We report the case of a woman at the age of twenty-five, who(More)
Rhegmatogenous retinal detachment (RRD) is the separation of the sensory retina from the pigment epithelium (RPE). RRD is caused by a retinal tear in the periphery and the vitreoretinal (VR) traction, which allows access of the vitreous fluid to the subretinal space. Treatment of symptomatic retinal detachment is currently surgical only. Surgical options(More)
The choroidal neovascularization (CNV) is the leading cause of blindness in industrial countries. CNV in age-related macular degeneration (AMRD) is dynamic, multifactor process, which cause wasn't revealed until now. It is obvious that in multifactorial disease no single treatment is optimal, and that the monotherapy can't cover all factors leading to the(More)
Arterial hypertension is a serious health problem. Decompensation of blood pressure may cause many ocular complications. We present three case reports of men with decompensated blood pressure and associated ocular complications. Successful compensation of blood pressure leads to objective improvement of fundus changes and vision.
Authors monitored changes of anatomical relationships of the anterior segment of the eye, following after the cataract surgery (standard phacoemulsification with implantation of the posterior chamber intraocular lens). They monitored especially the depth of the anterior chamber and angle width, and further anatomical relationships and configurations of(More)
AIM To establish the conjunctival sac bacterial flora structure in patients with wet form of the age-related macular degeneration (ARMD) indicated for the intravitreal application of Ranibizumab (Lucentis, Novartis Pharma AG). To evaluate the efficacy of combined local preparation with broad-spectrum antibiotic moxifloxacine 0.5% (Vigamox, Alcon) and(More)
In a randomized prospective open study the authors followed up the influence of latanoprost 0.005 % on the changes of the ciliary body thickness by means of ultrasound biomicroscopy. The study group consisted of 40 eyes of 24 patients with primary open angle glaucoma not treated with latanoprost before. At the entry visit and further after 2 and 8 weeks,(More)
UNLABELLED We evaluate annual anatomical and functional results of standard 20G pars plana vitrectomy for idiopathic macular hole, with peeling MLI (membrana limitans interna) and instillation of gas tamponade (20% SF6 - sulfur hexafluoride). The observed group consisted of 32 eyes of 32 patients (3 men and 29 women), mean age 69 years (range 59-76). There(More)
