PURPOSE To evaluate the therapeutic effect of intravitreal triamcinolone (IVT) injection for recent branch retinal vein occlusion (BRVO). METHODS In a randomized controlled clinical trial, 30 phakic eyes with recent (less than 10 weeks' duration) BRVO were assigned to two groups. The treatment group (16 eyes) received 4 mg IVT and the control group (14(More)
PURPOSE To report the anatomical and functional outcomes of surgery for retinal detachment associated with chorioretinal colobomas. METHODS In this retrospective interventional case series, 28 eyes of 28 patients (including 18 male subjects) who had undergone surgery for retinal detachment associated with chorioretinal colobomas were evaluated regarding(More)
To compare the effect of high-dose intravenous corticosteroid therapy with placebo in the treatment of recent traumatic optic neuropathy (TON). In a double-masked placebo-controlled clinical trial, 31 eyes of 31 patients were randomly assigned to two groups. Patients with history of trauma ≤7 days were included. Unconscious patients, eyes with penetrating(More)
Central retinal vein occlusion (CRVO) is the most common vascular event in the eye after diabetic retinopathy. This study was conducted to evaluate the effect of intravitreal triamcinolone (IVT) on acute CRVO. In a randomized sham-controlled clinical trial, 27 eyes with recent onset (less than 2 months) CRVO were randomly assigned to two groups. The(More)
AIM To detect the risk factors that predicts final visual acuity, retinal detachment, and ocular survival after penetrating trauma. METHODS In a prospective case series study, 116 eyes with open-globe injuries were evaluated between 2001 and 2004. All data were filled in the questionnaire chart. Sex, age, involved eye, best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA),(More)
A 13-year-old boy was referred because of visual deterioration in his right eye. The visual acuity was two meters of counting fingers. Indirect ophthalmoscopy and biomicroscopy revealed exudative macular edema as well as tumor-like telangiectatic vessels and exudation in temporal periphery. With diagnosis of Coats' disease (stage II) confirmed by(More)
PURPOSE To identify the factors influencing anatomical and visual results in cases of rhegmatogenous retinal detachment undergoing primary scleral buckling. METHODS A retrospective study of 233 eyes of 226 patients was done. The data were evaluated by univariate analysis and stepwise logistic regression analysis. RESULTS Retinal reattachment was(More)
To evaluate the efficacy of intravenous erythropoietin (EPO) on improvement of visual function and color vision in patients with recent indirect traumatic optic neuropathy (TON). In a case series, 18 eyes of 18 patients with diagnosis of indirect TON with duration of less than 2 weeks underwent 20,000 IU intravenous EPO injections daily for 3 days. Best(More)
To compare peripapillary retinal nerve fiber layer thickness (RNFLT) between patients with bipolar disorder and a control group by optical coherence tomography (OCT). This prospective comparative case series included 60 eyes of 30 patients with bipolar disorder and 60 eyes of 30 age-matched healthy control subjects. Using OCT, peripapillary RNFLT of the 4(More)
PURPOSE To report the long-term results of intravitreal bevacizumab (IVB) injection alone or combined, at the time of first IVB injection, with intravitreal triamcinolone acetonide (IVT) for treatment of refractory diabetic macular edema (DME). METHODS In this randomized clinical trial, 115 eyes of 101 patients with refractory DME were enrolled and(More)
