OBJECTIVES To compare retinal nerve fiber layer thickness (RNFLT) and choroidal thickness (ChT) measurements in eyes with pseudoexfoliative (PEX) glaucoma, PEX syndrome and healthy control eyes. METHODS Eighteen patients with PEX glaucoma in one eye and PEX syndrome in the fellow eye were included. The right eyes of thirty-nine age- and sex-matched(More)
We congratulate Yu et al. for their successful results where they evaluated the pattern distribution and the changes of strabismus surgery in pediatric population [1]. The authors observed that surgery for childhood exotropia was more common than surgery for esotropia in China and they stated that strabismus type and onset age were found to be associated(More)
INTRODUCTION Progressive hemifacial atrophy, known as Parry-Romberg syndrome (PRS), was first described by Parry in 1825. There is a progressive atrophy of facial tissues including skin, bones and muscles. Ophthalmic disorders are common and include keratitis, uveitis, cataract, ipsilateral enophthalmos, optic neuritis, retinal vasculitis and scleral(More)
AIM To assess the levels of the neutrophil to lymphocyte ratio (N/L) and the platelet to lymphocyte ratio (P/L) in patients with idiopathic acute anterior uveitis (AAU) and to compare with healthy controls. METHODS Thirty-six male patients with idiopathic AAU and 36 male healthy subjects were enrolled in this retrospective study. Complete ophthalmological(More)
Dear Editor, We read with great interest the recently published article BRelationships among serum lipoprotein lipase mass, visceral fat, and retinal nerve fiber layer thickness^ by Shiba et al. [1]. In this study, researchers analyzed the relationships among lipoprotein lipase (LPL), visceral fat, and peripapillary retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL)(More)
Purpose: The aim of the present study was to use enhanced depth imaging optical coherence tomography (EDI-OCT) to investigate choroidal changes in patients with cone dystrophy (CD) and to correlate these findings with clinical and electroretinography (ERG) findings. Methods: This case-control study included 40 eyes of 20 patients with CD and 40 eyes of 40(More)
We congratulate Chun and Kang for their successful results which they obtained in children with exotropia with convergence weakness [1]. This issue is one of the controversial topics, in which there are still diverse opinions in its treatment, in which a full consensus cannot be built in surgical treatment, and in which various success rates within the(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the alteration of lower lid configuration and function with anterior transposition surgery of the inferior oblique (IO) muscle. PATIENTS AND METHODS A prospective clinical trial was conducted on a consecutive series of patients underwent anterior transposition of the IO as a sole operation. All patients received a thorough ophthalmic(More)
AIM To assess the consecutive recurrence following early success of intermittent exotropia surgery and to determine the clinical factors that affect the survival. METHODS One hundred and thirty-five patients who underwent intermittent exotropia surgery and experienced early surgical success [≤5 prism diopters (PD) esophoria (E) to ≤10 PD exophoria (X) on(More)
We read with great interest the recently published article “Extraction of Iron from the Rabbit Anterior Chamber with Reverse Iontophoresis” by Sun et al. [1]. In this experimental study, researchers aimed to use reverse iontophoresis (RI) to extract iron from the anterior chamber noninvasively. However, we think that there are some points that should be(More)
