PURPOSE The genetic basis of primary angle closure glaucoma (PACG) has yet to be elucidated. Ocular characteristics related to PACG such as short hyperopic eyes with shallow anterior chambers suggest the involvement of genes that regulate ocular size. CHX10, a retinal homeobox gene associated with microphthalmia, and MFRP, the membrane-type frizzled-related(More)
—Placing is a necessary skill for a personal robot to have in order to perform tasks such as arranging objects in a disorganized room. The object placements should not only be stable but also be in their semantically preferred placing areas and orientations. This is challenging because an environment can have a large variety of objects and placing areas(More)
PURPOSE To investigate the variation in macular retinal thickness in otherwise normal young Asian myopic subjects by using optical coherence tomography (OCT). METHODS One hundred thirty ophthalmically normal men 19 to 24 years of age with myopia (spherical equivalent, -0.25 to -14.25 D) underwent examination of one randomly selected eye. Visual acuity,(More)
We consider the problem of learning object arrangements in a 3D scene. The key idea here is to learn how objects relate to human poses based on their affordances, ease of use and reachability. In contrast to mod-eling object-object relationships, modeling human-object relationships scales linearly in the number of objects. We design appropriate density(More)
The ability to place objects in an environment is an important skill for a personal robot. An object should not only be placed stably, but should also be placed in its preferred location/orientation. For instance, it is preferred that a plate be inserted vertically into the slot of a dish-rack as compared to being placed horizontally in it. Unstructured(More)
PURPOSE Polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy (PCV) is a major cause of serosanguinous maculopathy in Chinese patients with age-related macular degeneration (AMD). Variants in the CFH and HTRA1/LOC387715 genes are strongly associated with AMD in Caucasians and Chinese. Variants in the C2 and BF genes have been found to confer a significantly reduced risk of(More)
—The collection and prompt analysis of synchropha-sor measurements is a key step towards enabling the future smart power grid, in which grid management applications would be deployed to monitor and react intelligently to changing conditions. The potential exists to slash inefficiencies and to adaptively reconfigure the grid to take better advantage of(More)
INTRODUCTION The aim of the study was to describe the prevalence and risk factors for diabetic retinopathy in a multi-ethnic diabetic patient cohort referred for retinal evaluation from a nationwide diabetic retinopathy screening programme in Singapore. MATERIALS AND METHODS Seven hundred and forty-two patients, aged 21 to 95, referred for suspected(More)
