PURPOSE To compare tear meniscus height (TMH) and area (TMA) values obtained by optical coherence tomography (OCT) with the Schirmer test and tear-film break-up time (TBUT) values. MATERIALS AND METHODS In this prospective cross-sectional study, the right eyes of 300 consecutive patients were studied. All patients underwent routine ophthalmologic(More)
PURPOSE New optical coherence tomography (OCT) devices with anterior segment module are able to measure the tear meniscus height (TMH) and tear meniscus area (TMA). Since the borders of the area and the height are to be marked by an examiner, the measurements are prone to be subjective. Herein, we aimed to evaluate the interexaminer reproducibility of the(More)
BACKGROUND We describe a child with central retinal artery occlusion and hyperhomocysteinemia. METHODS A 13-year-old girl developed sudden vision loss and was hospitalized for diagnosis and treatment. RESULTS Her physical examination was normal except for her ophthalmologic examination. Her serum homocysteine level and lipoprotein(a) were elevated to(More)
A 19-year-old woman with type I neurofibromatosis requested reconstruction of her severe facial disfigurement caused by the plexiform neurofibroma of the right upper eyelid. Previously, she had glaucoma surgery for buphthalmus and enucleation with dermis fat transplantation. She was unable to wear prosthesis in the last year. Transverse palpebral resection(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the tear-film meniscus with optical coherence tomography (OCT) in patients with Graves' disease (GD). MATERIALS AND METHODS Patients with GD without clinical features of thyroid-associated ophthalmopathy (TAO) (Group 1, n=35), patients with signs of TAO (Group 2, n=31) and healthy participants (Group 3, n=31) were enrolled. Palpebral(More)
PURPOSE This study was designed to analyze the risk factors resulting in high intraocular pressure (IOP), which was accepted as IOP higher than 22 mmHg, following uncomplicated phacoemulsification. MATERIALS AND METHODS The records of 812 eyes of 584 patients who underwent uncomplicated phacoemulsification were evaluated. There were 330 men and 254 women(More)
An 85-year-old male presented with painless bulging lesion over the cornea. Clinical history, diagnostic imaging studies, and histopathologic sections were evaluated. The patient clinically displayed an vascularized conjunctival lesion located at the superior bulbar conjunctiva with extension onto cornea covering 2/3 of his pupillary aperture superiorly.(More)
We report a case with severe head trauma and perforating globe injury in one eye and ischemic retinopathy and neovascular proliferation in the other eye. A 37-year-old male was brought to the emergency department after a motor vehicle accident with severe maxillofacial trauma. Ophthalmic examination revealed hematoma of the left eyelids as well as traumatic(More)
AIM To evaluate central macular thickness (CMT) and mean choroidal thickness (MCT) in eyes with branch retinal vein occlusion (BRVO), before and after ranibizumab treatment using spectral domain-optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT). METHODS Forty-two patients with unilateral BRVO and macular edema were included in this study. There were 25 men and 17(More)
PURPOSE To report a case with Purtscher-like retinopathy related to drug-induced hypersensitivity syndrome (DIHS). DESIGN Case report. METHODS A 31-year-old male with fever, macula-papular rash, lymphadenopathy, and hepatitis was hospitalized. RESULTS Eosinophilic leukocytosis, as well as cotton wool spots around the optic disc, was observed. Viral,(More)
