PURPOSE To evaluate the long-term visual results of Acufocus ACI-7000 (now Kamra) intracorneal inlay implantation in presbyopic phakic patients. SETTING Beyoğlu Eye Training and Research Hospital, Istanbul, Turkey. DESIGN Clinical trial. METHODS This study comprised patients with emmetropic or post-laser in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) presbyopia.(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to define the morphologic differences in idiopathic and secondary epiretinal membranes (ERMs) using a time domain optical coherence tomography. METHODS The medical records and optical coherence tomography images of 293 eyes of 236 consecutive patients diagnosed to have ERM were evaluated retrospectively. Demographic(More)
PURPOSE To assess the course of macular thickness change in relation to visual acuity improvement, in patients being operated for idiopathic epimacular membrane by 23-gauge pars plana vitrectomy. MATERIALS AND METHODS The clinical charts of 21 eyes of 19 consecutive patients (9 male and 10 female) were assessed retrospectively. Postoperatively, patients(More)
PURPOSE This study aimed to report an outbreak of early-onset endophthalmitis caused by Fusarium species following cataract surgery. METHODS The study was designed retrospectively to review microbiologic and medical records of eight cases of endophthalmitis caused by Fusarium species after cataract surgery performed in the same operating room and on the(More)
PURPOSE To assess accelerated corneal collagen crosslinking (CXL) applied concurrently with laser in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) in a small group of patients. SETTING Beyoglu Eye Research and Training Hospital, Istanbul, Turkey. DESIGN Prospective pilot interventional case series. METHODS In May 2010, patients had LASIK with concurrent accelerated CXL(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the differences in corneal biomechanical properties between healthy subjects and patients with pseudoexfoliation syndrome (PEX) and pseudoexfoliative glaucoma (PEXG) using the ocular response analyzer (ORA). MATERIALS AND METHODS One hundred eighteen eyes of 45 healthy, 43 PEX and 30 PEXG eyes were included in to the study. Corneal(More)
PURPOSE To compare the efficacy of intravitreal injection of triamcinolone, bevacizumab, and a combination of triamcinolone-bevacizumab for the management of macular edema due to branch retinal vein occlusion. METHODS Fifty-two eyes of 52 patients (29 male, 23 female) with branch retinal vein occlusion and macular edema were included. Patients received(More)
PURPOSE To investigate the results of intravitreal bevacizumab for choroidal neovascularization (CNV) secondary to angioid streaks and to assess the factors influencing disease progression. METHODS Patients treated with intravitreal bevacizumab (1.25 mg/0.05 mL) for CNV secondary to angioid streaks were reviewed retrospectively. In addition to demographic(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the immediate intraocular pressure (IOP) changes following intravitreal dexamethasone implantation. METHODS Thirty-four eyes of 34 consecutive patients (16 females and 18 males; mean age, 59.9 ± 9.0 years) with diagnosis of macular edema secondary to diabetic retinopathy (20 eyes) or retinal vein occlusion (14 eyes) scheduled for(More)
Purpose. Our aim was to compare contrast sensitivity values of the dominant and nondominant eyes of healthy middle-aged subjects. Material and Methods. Ninety eyes of 45 healthy middle-aged subjects (30 males and 15 females) were included in this study. Patients were aged between 40 and 60 years, having uncorrected visual acuity (UCVA) of 20/25 or better(More)
