To determine whether significant correlations exist between the foveal microstructures and visual outcomes in eyes with resolved central serous chorioretinopathy (CSC). We retrospectively reviewed the medical records of patients who had a complete resolution of the serous retinal detachment (SRD) and had an intact ellipsoid zone in the fovea in the(More)
INTRODUCTION Blue light information plays an important role in synchronising internal biological rhythm within the external environment. Circadian misalignment is associated with the increased risk of sleep disturbance, obesity, diabetes mellitus, depression, ischaemic heart disease, stroke and cancer. Meanwhile, blue light causes photochemical damage to(More)
PURPOSE To determine whether the highly reflective vertical lines seen in spectral-domain optical coherence tomographic (SD OCT) images, which we have termed track lines, after resolution of macular edema associated with branch retinal vein occlusion are related to the integrity of the photoreceptors. DESIGN Retrospective, observational, cross-sectional(More)
PURPOSE To compare the choroidal structure beneath the macular area in eyes with reticular pseudodrusen (RPD) and age-matched controls. METHODS This study was performed at Nara Medical University Hospital, Japan. Twenty eyes of 14 patients (82.3±4.2 years, mean ± standard deviation) with RPD and 35 eyes of 20 age-matched controls (81.5±6.0 years) were(More)
Oculocutaneous albinism is a group of congenital disorders caused by alterations of melanin biosynthesis. We report our findings in a patient with oculocutaneous albinism who presented with foveal hypoplasia and a foveal hemorrhage. A 48-year-old man noted a dark spot in the middle of the visual field of his right eye. He had depigmented skin, white hair,(More)
AIMS Statins, inhibitors of 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl coenzyme A reductase, possess pleiotropic effects that have been extended to modulation of various cellular behaviors. This study aimed to examine whether statins modulate vascular endothelial growth factor A (VEGF-A) expression in human retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) cells. MAIN METHODS Human RPE(More)
