PURPOSE   To determine the effect of pars plana vitrectomy (PPV) on oxygen saturation in retinal vessels. METHODS   We performed a prospective consecutive interventional case series of 20 eyes of 20 patients with macular hole or epiretinal membrane. We performed automatic retinal oximetry (Oxymap Inc., Reykjavik, Iceland) in each patient 24 hr prior to(More)
PURPOSE To determine the critical value of the angle kappa in connection with a higher risk of photic phenomena for the AcrySof ReSTOR and Tecnis multifocal intra-ocular lens (MIOL) on a standardized pseudophakic eye model. To analyse the impact of biometric value changes on the critical angle kappa. METHODS Geometrical optic rules applied to a suitable(More)
PURPOSE The study reported here investigated the efficacy, tolerability, and safety of the preservative-free prostaglandin analog tafluprost 0.0015% in treatment-naive patients. PATIENTS AND METHODS Data were collected in two non-interventional, prospective, multicenter, observational, open-label studies of identical design that were conducted in Germany(More)
Ectopic cilia are extremely rare congenital anomalies in which eyelash follicles appear in an abnormal place on the eyelid, most typically on the lateral quadrant of the anterior surface of the upper eyelid. In the majority of cases, simple surgical excision of ectopic cilia is indicated because of its cosmetic aspect. There is usually no associated medical(More)
PURPOSE To determine the effect of pars plana vitrectomy (PPV) on oxygen saturation in retinal vessels in patients with diabetes and non-diabetes after a 1-year follow-up. METHODS This was a prospective consecutive interventional case series in 82 eyes in 82 patients. The sample consisted of 25 patients with non-proliferative diabetic retinopathy with(More)
AIM To evaluate photodynamic therapy (PDT) combined with the preferential the cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) inhibitor, nabumetone in the treatment of the neovascular age-related macular degeneration (ARMD). METHODS A prospective, double-blind, randomized study on 60 patients with subfoveal CNV secondary to ARMD without any previous treatment. Patients were(More)
AIMS To compare ultrasound (US) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) measurements of horizontal eye muscle thickness in patients with thyroid-associated orbitopathy (TAO) and to compare these measurements according to the phase of the disease, the severity of exophthalmos, and the experience of the investigator. METHODS A total of 180 orbits of adult(More)
INTRODUCTION Glucocorticoids represent the therapy of choice for active and moderate-to-severe Graves̕ orbitopathy (GO). In some patients, rituximab, a monoclonal antibody against the cluster of differentiation (CD) 20 receptor of B-lymphocytes, can serve as a second-line or an alternative treatment. The effect of very low-doseof rituximabon the clinical(More)
