Choroidal Thickness in Patients with Systemic Lupus Erythematosus Analyzed by Spectral-domain Optical Coherence Tomography
TLDR
The mean subfoveal, nasal, and temporal CT values were statistically significantly lower in patients with SLE when compared with healthy controls, as measured by enhanced depth imaging optical coherence tomography (EDI-OCT).
Macula and Retinal Nerve Fiber Layer in Migraine Patients: Analysis By Spectral Domain Optic Coherence Tomography
TLDR
The average RNFL thickness in the migraine patients was found to be thinner than that in the control group, supporting the possible association between these pathologies.
Outcomes of corneal collagen crosslinking using a customized epithelial debridement technique in keratoconic eyes with thin corneas
TLDR
CXL performed with customized epithelial debridement technique is successful in halting the progression of keratoconus in corneas thinner than 400 µm after 12 months of treatment, however, significant endothelial cell loss can occur after this procedure.
Oxidative Stress and Anti-oxidative Defence in Patients with Age-related Macular Degeneration
TLDR
There is a significant increase in oxidative stress inAMD patients and significant decrease in antioxidant defence, in the total thiol level and in PON1 activity in AMD patients compared with controls, suggesting that the increased oxidative stress and decreased antioxidant levels may have a synergistic role in AMD development.
[Fungal keratitis caused by Scedosporium apiospermum: first report from Turkey].
TLDR
Though a very rare causative agent of keratitis, S.apiospermum is generally resistant to antifungal therapy and often require surgical treatment, so this organism should be kept in mind as a potential causativeAgent and relevant microbiological examinations should be performed.
Thinning of Choroidal Thickness in Patients with Rheumatoid Arthritis Unrelated to Disease Activity
TLDR
Subfoveal and perifoveal choroidal thickness was significantly thinner in patients with RA when compared with healthy controls and DAS-28 wasn’t correlated with sub foveal CT in the study group.
The levels of the circulating cellular adhesion molecules ICAM-1, VCAM-1 and endothelin-1 and the flow-mediated vasodilatation values in patients with type 1 diabetes mellitus with early-stage
TLDR
The early stages of diabetic retinopathy cannot be considered in the evaluation of systemic markers of endothelial dysfunction, and the serum levels of cellular adhesion molecules investigated, including intercellular adhesion molecule (ICAM-1), vascular cell ad cohesion molecule (VCAM-2) and endothelin-1 (ET-1) found no significant differences.
Can Corneal Biomechanical Properties Give Clues About Elasticity of Optic Nerve Scleral Component in Nonarteritic Anterior Ischemic Optic Neuropathy?
TLDR
Corneal hysteresis and corneal resistance factor are significantly reduced in patients with unilateral NAION, possibly indirectly reflecting structural weakness in the lamina cribrosa.
