PURPOSE Lysyl oxidase (LOX) cross-links the side chain of collagen and elastin and thereby contributes to extracellular matrix (ECM) integrity. ECM remodeling is seen in various ocular diseases. Until now, there have been no reports on the LOX enzyme's activity in ocular tissues. The purpose of this study was to estimate LOX activity and expression in human(More)
PURPOSE Bietti crystalline dystrophy (BCD) is an autosomal recessive disease characterized by intraretinal deposits of multiple small crystals, with or without associated crystal deposits in the cornea. The disease is caused by mutation in the cytochrome p450, family 4, subfamily v, polypeptide 2 (CYP4V2) gene. Choroidal neovascularization (CNV) is a rare(More)
PURPOSE The occurrence of choroidal detachment (CD) in eyes with primary rhegmatogenous retinal detachment (RRD) is relatively uncommon (2%-4.5%). Recent reports suggest that primary vitrectomy yields better anatomic success than scleral buckling. However, for these inflamed eyes with low intraocular pressure, the influence of preoperative oral steroids on(More)
BACKGROUND To report the occurrence of foveal atrophy and macular hole formation following intravitreal ranibizumab with or without photodynamic therapy for choroidal neovascularization caused by age-related macular degeneration. METHODS This was a retrospective, interventional case series, in which 78 eyes of 76 patients were treated for wet age-related(More)
PURPOSE To measure the concentrations of iron, copper and zinc in human vitreous and to interpret their levels with various vitreoretinal diseases like proliferative diabetic retinopathy, retinal detachment, intraocular foreign body, Eales' disease and macular hole. METHODS Undiluted vitreous fluid collected during pars plana vitrectomy was used to(More)
