AIM To evaluate the influence of axial length on retinal nerve fibre layer (RNFL) thickness in myopic, hyperopic and emmetropic eyes by spectral domain optical coherence tomography (OCT). METHODS Subjects were divided into three groups: myopic (n=35), emmetropic (n=30) and hyperopic eyes (n=33). RNFL thickness was obtained from all octametric section(More)
PURPOSE To investigate the peripapillary retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thickness of myopic and hyperopic eyes in comparison with emmetropic control eyes and to evaluate the correlation between the peripapillary RNFL thickness with axial length and spherical equivalent (SE). MATERIALS AND METHODS One hundred fifty-four eyes of 154 subjects were(More)
PURPOSE To determine the distribution of central corneal thickness (CCT) and intraocular pressure (IOP) in a population of Turkish school children and to evaluate the relationships between these values and both age and gender. METHODS A total of 30,320 eyes from 15,160 healthy school children aged 5-18 years were examined. CCT and IOP were measured using(More)
To evaluate the efficacy and safety of loteprednol etabonate (LE) 0.5 % in vernal keratoconjunctivitis (VKC) patients compared to prednisolone and fluorometholone. The patients were randomized into three groups: the loteprednol group, prednisolone group and fluorometholone group. Medications were administered four times daily, for a total of 28 days. Before(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the relationship between the spherical equivalent (SE)/axial length and peripapillary retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thickness profile measured using Stratus optical coherence tomography (OCT) in hyperopic children. METHODS One hundred and sixty-four children with hyperopia were analyzed in the study. Subjects were divided into three(More)
PURPOSE This study aimed to evaluate the changes in retrobulbar blood flow by using color Doppler sonography in patients who had undergone intravitreal ranibizumab injection for neovascular age-related macular degeneration (AMD). METHODS The study comprised 37 AMD patients who had undergone intravitreal 0.5 mg ranibizumab injection. The ophthalmic artery,(More)
In this case report, we document a 54-year-old woman with total bilateral optic nerve atrophy after local application of methanol containing spirit. Almost all the reported cases of methanol intoxication in the literature are caused by oral ingestion. In this rare case, we present transdermal absorption of methanol that may cause irreversible blindness in(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the efficacy of fixed combination brimonidine-timolol (FCBT) in comparison with brimonidine tartrate 0.2% and control for the treatment of intraocular pressure (IOP) spikes after neodymium:YAG (Nd:YAG) laser posterior capsulotomy. METHODS One hundred five eyes of 105 patients were enrolled in the study. Patients were randomized to 3(More)
BACKGROUND Central serous chorioretinopathy is an idiopathic disorder that leads to serous neurosensory retinal detachment. The disorder is usually self-limited and resolves spontaneously; however, sometimes neurosensory retinal detachment persists. This form of the disorder is called chronic central serous chorioretinopathy (CCSC). OBJECTIVE The aim of(More)
Cataract is considered to be the primary reason for curable blindness that is caused by progressive loss of lens transparency and affects millions of people around the world. This study aims to analyze the changes in morphometric qualities of bulbus oculi (BO) as well as its morphometric measurements such as anterior chamber depth (ACD), lens thickness(More)
