PURPOSE To describe a new method of retinal vascular perfusion density mapping using optical coherence tomography angiography and to compare current staging of diabetic retinopathy based on clinical features with a new grading scale based on perifoveal perfusion densities. METHODS A retrospective review was performed on subjects with diabetic retinopathy(More)
Purpose To compare perfused peripapillary capillary density in primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG), normal-tension glaucoma (NTG), and normal patients using optical coherence tomography angiography (OCT-A). Methods A retrospective review of POAG, NTG, and normal patients imaged with OCT-A was performed. En face OCT angiograms identifying peripapillary(More)
Given the complexity of the current system used to stage diabetic retinopathy (DR) and the risks and limitations associated with intravenous fluorescein angiography (IVFA), noninvasive quantification of DR severity is desirable. We examined the utility of acircularity index and axis ratio of the foveal avascular zone (FAZ), metrics that can noninvasively(More)
Lutein, zeaxanthin, and meso-zeaxanthin are xanthophyll carotenoids found within the retina and throughout the visual system. The retina is one of the most metabolically active tissues in the body. The highest concentration of xanthophylls is found within the retina, and this selective presence has generated many theories regarding their role in supporting(More)
PURPOSE To report the first known case of bilateral granulomatous panuveitis secondary to chikungunya fever in the United States, acquired by a U.S. citizen traveling from an endemic region. METHODS Case report. RESULTS A 47-year-old woman presented with 10 days of bilateral decreased vision and photophobia concurrent with a febrile illness contracted(More)
