PURPOSE The indications for enucleation and evisceration have decreased in the last decade, most probably because of improved treatment modalities. The aim of the study was to evaluate the use of these procedures in the last 26 years in our medical centre. METHODS This study included all patients who underwent enucleation or evisceration at Rabin Medical(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE To compare the use of cyclocryotherapy and diode laser cyclophotocoagulation for the treatment of uncontrolled intraocular pressure. PATIENTS AND METHODS Seventy consecutive patients (70 eyes) treated for high, unresponsive intraocular pressure during a 4-year period with cyclocryotherapy (n = 38) or diode laser(More)
Six experiments were carried out to compare go/no-go and choice paradigms for studying the effects of intradimensional discrimination training on subsequent measures of stimulus generalization in human subjects. Specifically, the purpose was to compare the two paradigms as means of investigating generalization gradient forms and frame of reference effects.(More)
PURPOSE One of the leading methods for optic nerve head assessment in glaucoma remains stereoscopic photography. This study compared conventional film and digital stereoscopy in the quantitative and qualitative assessment of the optic nerve head in glaucoma and glaucoma suspect patients. METHODS Fifty patients with glaucoma or suspected glaucoma underwent(More)
Glaucoma suspect eyes were seen during a five-year study on color visual fields that used a 440-nm test on a bright-yellow background (96 normal eyes, 55 suspect eyes, and 110 eyes that developed glaucoma). The predictive ability of the test was assessed in 25 eyes followed up for more than one year, five of which developed glaucoma. These five eyes and(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the levels of plasminogen activator inhibitor-1 (PAI-1) and total protein in the aqueous humor of patients with glaucoma vs those without glaucoma. METHODS A total of 125 aqueous humor samples (50-150 microL each) were collected at 3 institutions from patients with glaucoma and a control group of patients with cataract. Fifteen(More)
OBJECTIVE A confocal scanning diode laser ophthalmoscope was used to determine the number of examinations needed to obtain highly reproducible topographic measurements of the optic nerve head and peripapillary retina. DESIGN Topographic images of the optic nerve head and peripapillary retina were obtained in one randomly selected eye on five separate(More)
A confocal scanning diode laser ophthalmoscope (Retina Tomograph, Heidelberg Engineering, GmbH, Heidelberg, F.R.G.) was used to examine the optic nerve head in both normal healthy (n = 10) and glaucomatous (n = 10) eyes. An image series was obtained from 32 transverse optical sections taken at consecutive height planes (50-80 mum each) over a 1.5-2.5-mm(More)
Two quantitative techniques, Scheimpflug photography and the lens density index (LDI), were used to measure lens density in 52 patients. In the Scheimpflug technique, a digitized slitlamp camera provides peak and average nuclear density based on a densitometric analysis of the lens nucleus. The LDI is a psychophysical measurement of the difference between(More)
