Epidemic viral conjunctivitis is a highly contagious eye disease that occurs worldwide and is caused mainly by adenoviruses and enteroviruses. An 18-year analysis of the changes of pathogens and clinical signs in a subtropical and densely populated island presents certain special features. We retrospectively analyzed the clinical information and laboratory(More)
The purpose of present study is to dissect the role of PI3K/AKT signaling in the anti-apoptotic effects of human granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF) on rat retinal ganglion cells (RGCs) after optic nerve (ON) crush. The ONs of seventy-two adult male Wistar rats were crushed by a standardized method. Control eyes received a sham operation. G-CSF or(More)
This study was conducted to explore the prevalence and the associated factors of visual impairment and blindness among the elderly Taiwanese population. A nationwide population-based visual health care screening program of elderly people aged 65 years or older was conducted between 1 July 2002 and 31 December 2002 in Taiwan. Based on the same standardized(More)
AIM To report a patient with diabetic rubeosis who suffered from acute retinal ischemic change and stroke after intravitreal injection of bevacizumab. METHODS A 55-year-old man had diabetes with unilateral rubeosis and macular edema. Three days after receiving intravitreal injection of bevacizumab (1.25 mg in 0.1 ml), he developed acute vision loss and(More)
PURPOSE To investigate whether different crush durations or a different fluorogold (FG) injection timing can affect the efficiency of FG retrograde labeling of retinal ganglion cells (RGCs) in the optic nerve (ON) crush model. METHODS We performed the ON crush in rats with a clip at different durations or a jewel forceps to compare the effects of(More)
We investigated the interoperator reproducibility of peripapillary retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) and macular retinal thickness measurements using optical coherence tomography (OCT) in healthy Taiwanese eyes. In this study, OCT-3 was used by three trained and experienced operators to measure peripapillary RNFL and macular retinal thickness in a randomly(More)
To investigate the prevalence and causes of visual impairment in elderly Amis aborigines in Eastern Taiwan. Population-based cross-sectional study of visual impairment of elderly Amis (65 years of age or older). We conducted ocular examinations on 2,316 participants, which represent 61.2 % of the elderly population. We used WHO criteria to identify visual(More)
With the increased use of central venous catheters in cancer patients, there has been an increase in the recovery of environmental and skin organisms from blood cultures. A red yeast, Rhodotorula, an infrequent cause of infection in humans, was isolated from a patient with acute myeloblastic leukemia undergoing bone marrow transplant while he received(More)
INTRODUCTION To put a blindness prevention program into practice in remote districts of Eastern Taiwan, a Mobile Vision Van Unit (MVVU) was established to work as a community eyecare station. The aim of this study was to describe the operation and challenges encountered with this unit and its efficacy in expanding eyecare services. METHODS A(More)
