OBJECTIVE To quantify retinal thickness in patients with Parkinson disease (PD). METHODS Forty-five eyes of 24 PD patients and 31 eyes of 17 control subjects underwent a comprehensive ophthalmologic examination. We used optical coherence tomography to examine retinal thickness, separately quantifying the inner and outer retinal layers. Intraocular(More)
The electroretinogram (ERG) was obtained to contrast modulation (CM). This stimulus is a product of temporal modulation of the contrast of a spatial sinusoid at constant mean luminance. Mean contrast (10-40%), and modulation depth (25-1.0) were modulated at 7.5Hz to record the pattern electroretinogram (PERG). The spatial pattern was a foveally fixated(More)
BACKGROUND The purpose of this study was to investigate the most common reasons for urgent ophthalmology consultations in both the emergency room and inpatient settings at a large public hospital served by a busy ophthalmology residency program, and to track patient follow-up rates. METHODS We reviewed the medical records of all patients evaluated by the(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the in vitro effects of benzalkonium chloride (BAK) at various concentrations and dosing schedules on adenoviral infection. METHODS Adenovirus was placed in Refeed media and at 30 min after infection, various concentrations and doses of BAK were placed into the 1 mL solution. All assays were incubated at 37 degrees C. Dosing of(More)
Results: The mean (SD) ages of the patients with PD and healthy subjects were 64.0(6.5) years vs 63.5(10.7) years (P=.77). The mean (SD) intraocular pressure was 13.6 ( /−2.7) mm Hg in the PD patients. No difference was found in either the superior or inferior outer retinal layer thickness of PD vs control eyes. The mean (SD) superior inner retinal layer(More)
