AIMS To determine the effects of argon green panretinal laser photocoagulation on retinal nerve fibre layer thickness, threshold visual fields, and Estermann full-binocular visual fields over time in diabetic retinopathy. METHOD Prospective, pilot clinical study. Time-domain optical coherence tomography (TD-OCT) of the optic nerve head and 24-2 SITA-Fast(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS To compare several methods of macular hole measurement using optical coherence tomography (OCT), and to assess their predictive capability against anatomical and visual outcomes in a single cohort of patients. METHODS A retrospective study of 50 eyes undergoing standardised macular hole surgery. All patients underwent preoperative OCT(More)
PURPOSE To assess the effect on intraocular pressure (IOP) of varying the length of the side incisions of the scleral flap during trabeculectomy. MATERIALS AND METHODS Trabeculectomy operations were performed with adjustable sutures on 8 donor human eyes connected to a constant flow infusion with real-time IOP monitoring, using either a large (4 x 4 mm,(More)
BACKGROUND To determine the effect of scleral flap size on the medium-term intraocular pressure control and complication rates after augmented trabeculectomy. DESIGN Prospective randomized clinical trial. PARTICIPANTS Glaucoma patients undergoing primary trabeculectomy. Exclusion criteria included previous ocular surgery apart from cataract surgery,(More)
AIMS AND PURPOSE To demonstrate a quick way of calculating the optical difference between two refractions using vector analysis, and to express this as a score for examination purposes. METHODS An existing formula is applied, converted to a defocus equivalent, and then converted to a score. The formula is set out in an Excel spreadsheet. RESULTS The(More)
BACKGROUND To assess the efficacy of Celecoxib, a cyclo-oxygenase 2 (COX-2) inhibitor, as prophylaxis for cystoid macular oedema after routine cataract surgery. METHODS A prospective, randomized, double-blind placebo-controlled trial of 69 hospital patients undergoing cataract surgery. Celecoxib 200 mg twice daily or placebo was given immediately after(More)
BACKGROUND To investigate the effect of adding indocyanine green to mitomycin C in augmented trabeculectomy. DESIGN A prospective, non-comparative interventional case series. PARTICIPANTS A total of 37 eyes of 37 patients followed up for 1 year. METHODS A solution containing 12.5 mg/mL of indocyanine green was added to mitomycin C, resulting in an(More)
Recent developments in the miniaturization of confocal imaging technology have resulted in the development of a hand-held confocal microscope probe. There are many structures of interest in the human eye that are within reach of a fluorescence-mode confocal microscope; this study assessed the feasibility of in vivo human ocular imaging. Safety analysis was(More)
