PURPOSE To describe a novel retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) screening model incorporating birth weight, gestational age, and postnatal weight gain that maintains sensitivity but improves specificity in detecting all grades of ROP compared to current 2013 screening guidelines. METHODS The medical records of 499 neonates from a single tertiary referral(More)
Escherichia coli (E. coli) is a rare cause of ocular infections and has not yet been reported as a cause of an ocular abscess. We describe the case of a 47-year-old woman with a history of alcoholic cirrhosis who presented with painful left lower eyelid swelling that did not improve with oral antibiotics. The abscess was drained and cultures were positive(More)
The study aims to determine the progression of gyrate atrophy by measuring the area growth of chorioretinal atrophic lesions using ultra-wide-field images (UWFI). A retrospective, observational, and comparative study was conducted and UWFI (200°) were obtained from two patients with gyrate atrophy at baseline and follow-up. Measurements of atrophy were(More)
We examined a 39-year-old female with severe headache and blurred vision. She was on topiramate, 50 mg once a day for one week because of migraine. Periorbital edema, chemosis, myopia, high intraocular pressures, and shallow anterior chambers were present at the initial examination. Iridocorneal angles were closed, ultrasound showed choroidal effusions. We(More)
PURPOSE We introduce a new method to observe the morphologic features of the vitreous with spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) by evaluating and describing the posterior vitreous structure of various selected cases using enhanced high-density (HD) line mode. METHODS This is a descriptive case series of SD-OCT images with enhanced HD line(More)
Multiple posterior segment complications can occur after LASIK. Posterior vitreous detachment, macular holes, retinal hemorrhages, retinal detachment, and several other complications have been described. A case of posterior vitreous detachment with epiretinal membrane in a young adult after LASIK is reported. LASIK surgeons must be aware of the possibility(More)
PURPOSE To purpose if this study was to determine whether the horizontal rectus muscle tendons (HRMTs) can be observed using anterior segment optical coherence tomography (AS-OCT) and to determine the repeatability of its measurements. Also, this study aimed to observe and measure the different external ocular structures at the level of the horizontal(More)
