PURPOSE To determine whether drusen in patients with age-related maculopathy and macular degeneration (ARM/AMD) are associated with focal changes in retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) lipofuscin fluorescence. METHOD A new autofluorescence imaging device was used to study lipofuscin distribution associated with individual drusen in 20 patients with ARM/AMD.(More)
Advancing surgical techniques have made the surgical excision of subfoveal CNV possible in all cases. However, serious surgical complications lead to a limited visual outcome in many cases. The major complications that cause poor visual outcome are related to poor case selection and include injury to the RPE, with secondary atrophy of the choriocapillaris(More)
PURPOSE To investigate the role of orbital computed tomography (CT) in the evaluation of patients after dacryocystorhinostomy (DCR). METHODS Computed tomography scans of patients who underwent both successful and failed DCR were examined to determine the relationship of the soft-tissue changes to the surgical ostium, and the findings were correlated with(More)
