OBJECTIVE To collect a normative database of macular thickness, retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thicknesses, and optic nerve topography in the healthy eyes of children aged 3 to 17 years using optical coherence tomography (OCT) measurements. METHODS Scans were obtained for 286 healthy children (black, 114; white, 154; other, 18). Each child had a dilated(More)
I AM HAPPY TO RESPOND TO DR RAO REGARDING OUR publication. We defined the surgical failure as an intraocular pressure (IOP) of 21 mm Hg or more (criterion A) and an IOP of 18 mm Hg or more (criterion B) with or without medications, which means qualified successes. Because the level at which postoperative IOP medication should be started depends largely on(More)
PURPOSE Neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1) is the most common neurocutaneous disorder, with an approximate incidence of 1 in 3,500. Optic pathway gliomas (OPGs) develop in 15% of individuals with NF1, commonly in childhood. OPGs are difficult to detect via a clinical inspection in children, often requiring magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Given the significant(More)
BACKGROUND In clinical practice, the differentiation of glaucomatous from non-glaucomatous cupping can be difficult, even for experienced observers. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the role of optical coherence tomography (OCT) in differentiating glaucomatous from non-glaucomatous optic nerve cupping in a cross-sectional pilot study. METHODS(More)
Horner syndrome can be caused by a variety of etiologies that interrupt the sympathetic innervation of the eye, including but not limited to central mass lesions. Recently, it has been debated whether neuroimaging has a place in the diagnostic algorithm of isolated pediatric Horner syndrome given the low incidence of neuroblastoma. We present a case of a(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate optical coherence tomography (OCT) measurement of peripapillary retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) and macular thickness in children with pseudotumor cerebri. METHODS Prospective observational series of children with pseudotumor cerebri compared against controls matched for age and gender. We included 11 pediatric subjects with clinical(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the longitudinal reproducibility of optical coherence tomography (OCT) measurements in normal and glaucomatous eyes of children. METHODS In this 2-setting prospective study, OCT-3 was used to obtain fast retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) and macular thickness scans. In the first study setting, the normal eyes of healthy children were(More)
BACKGROUND To apply automated spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) segmentation to eyes with resolving papilledema. METHODS Ninety-four patients with idiopathic intracranial hypertension seen at the Duke Eye Center neuro-ophthalmology clinic between November 2010 and October 2011 were reviewed. Excluded were eyes with papilledema with(More)
Acute macular neuroretinopathy is a rare disorder characterized by the sudden onset of unilateral or bilateral paracentral scotomas with relative sparing of the central vision that occurs mostly in young women. It is often characterized by wedge-like macular lesions. The cause of acute macular neuroretinopathy is unknown but viral, immunological, and(More)
PURPOSE To compare Icare ONE tonometry by clinic examiner and parent/guardian to Goldmann applanation in children with known/suspected glaucoma; to evaluate the trend in intraocular pressure (IOP) with 4 repeated measurements using Icare ONE; and to evaluate the feasibility of instructing parents on the use of the Icare ONE device in the clinic setting.
