PURPOSE To determine the morphometric parameters of filtration blebs of a valved aqueous humor drainage device. MATERIALS AND METHODS Orbital magnetic resonances imaging (MRI) was taken after implantation of an Ahmed valve (FP7 model). Outcomes of the analysis were intraocular pressure (IOP) and the bleb's morphometric analysis (volume, height, major and(More)
OBJECTIVE To analyze the retinal ganglion cell layer (RGL) by optical coherence tomography (OCT) in toxic and nutritional optic neuropathy and to correlate its thickness and volume with functional damage. METHODS We conducted an observational cross-sectional study in healthy subjects and in patients with toxic optic neuropathy observed in the(More)
We report the case of a 75-year-old woman who developed an acute bilateral angle-closure associated with choroidal effusion a day after an uneventful cataract surgery.
