OBJECTIVE To compare serum markers of oxidative stress with diabetic retinopathy severity RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS This cross-sectional study compared patients with types 1 and 2 diabetes with control subjects in western New York and Pennsylvania. Retinopathy severity was graded from funduscopic fields based on the Early Treatment of Diabetic(More)
PURPOSE The authors describe the clinical characteristics of a group of patients with age-related macular degeneration (AMD), deep retinal vascular anomalous complexes (RVACs), advanced Bruch membrane changes, and severe visual loss. Based on clinical evaluation and imaging studies, the authors hypothesize the cause of such retinal vascular formations. (More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the current and future interventions in age-related macular degeneration (AMD), it is essential to delineate the early clinical features associated with later visual loss. The authors describe the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE)/Bruch membrane region in ten patients with advance exudative AMD using current angiographic techniques and a(More)
OBJECTIVE To quantify the spatial extent of pigment epithelial detachment (PED) associated with age-related macular degeneration (AMD) using a rapid, noninvasive method. DESIGN Prospective, cross-sectional study. PARTICIPANTS The authors tested 32 eyes of 21 patients (13 women and 8 men) with AMD 56 to 91 years of age (mean = 72.8 years). The authors(More)
To understand the mechanisms of glaucoma in retinopathy of prematurity (ROP), anterior segment evaluation is essential. The authors prospectively examined the anterior segment of 27 eyes of 17 premature infants with stages IV and V ROP. Twenty-six eyes received no previous surgery or treatment. Schiøtz and applanation tonometry were performed. Structural(More)
PURPOSE To share the authors' experience with cyanoacrylate glue in posterior retinal breaks associated with retinal detachments in infants and children. METHODS A retrospective study was performed of four consecutive pediatric patients who underwent vitreoretinal surgery for retinal detachment associated with posterior retinal breaks, for which(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of the study is to establish objective, quantitative, and reproducible three-dimensional analysis for macular holes with scanning laser tomography and to correlate measurements with visual acuity. DESIGN The authors performed a cross-sectional, nonrandomized study. PARTICIPANTS The authors examined 28 full-thickness macular holes(More)
We highlight the difficulty in differentiating Coats' disease from retinoblastoma. Two patients with bullous exudative retinal detachment and abnormal vessels are discussed. Histologic evaluation of the 5-year-old patient revealed retinoblastoma. The 1-year-old patient had Coats' disease by histologic identification. With this in mind, we suggest(More)
OBJECTIVE To perform three-dimensional, noninvasive, quantitative analysis of cystoid macular edema and macular cysts using infrared scanning laser tomography and to correlate findings with visual acuity (VA) as a basis for interventional studies. DESIGN Cross-sectional, nonrandomized study. PARTICIPANTS Seventeen patients (29-86 years of age) with(More)
