A unilateral electronegative electroretinogram (ERG) was seen in a 94-year-old man with presumed central retinal artery occlusion. Goldmann perimetry revealed central scotoma in the right eye and no abnormalities in the left eye. Full-field ERG in the right eye described a reduction of the b-wave with a relative preservation of the a-wave which is(More)
PURPOSE To analyze the outer retinal layers using spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) in patients with cone-rod dystrophy. METHODS The diagnosis of cone-rod dystrophy was determined by primary cone involvement or concomitant loss of both cones and rods. Electroretinography showed implicit time shift at 30-Hz flicker response and(More)
Purpose. To study the safety of intravitreal injections of poly-N-isopropylacrylamide (pNIPAM) tissue adhesive in rabbit eyes. Methods. Twelve study rabbits received an intravitreal injection of 0.1 mL 50% pNIPAM in the right eye. Follow-up examinations included color fundus photography, fundus fluorescein angiography (FA), optical coherence tomography(More)
PURPOSE To determine the safety and efficacy of poly-N-isopropylacrylamide, a thermoresponsive adhesive, for sutureless sclerotomy closure in rabbits. METHODS Eight rabbits were randomized into three groups: short-term acute, mid-term chronic, and long-term chronic studies. A corresponding control group in which the scleral wounds were sutured by 6-0(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate visual function of flecked areas in a series of patients with Stargardt disease (STGD) and compare them with adjacent non flecked areas. METHODS Twenty-seven patients with STGD, ABCA4 mutations and yellowish retinal flecks at fundus examination were recruited. Microperimetry with the Nidek MP-1 and fundus autofluorescence imaging (FAF)(More)
BACKGROUND Retrospective review of one acute syphilitic posterior placoid chorioretinitis (ASPPC) case with serological evidence of syphilis who had ocular signs and symptoms not attributable to other diseases. Enface and spectral-domain optical coherence tomographySD-OCT were analyzed at the time of presentation and at 1-month visit following initiation of(More)
