PURPOSE To evaluate corneal parameters of patients with ankylosing spondylitis (AS) by Scheimpflug imaging and also to clarify the associations between disease severity and clinical status of AS and corneal parameters. METHODS Fifty-seven patients with AS and 57 healthy subjects were included in this cross-sectional study. All participants underwent a(More)
PurposeTo assess the prognostic value of a new ocular trauma score (OTS) in pediatric penetrating injuries.MethodsChildren ≤15 years of age that presented to the emergency room with penetrating eye injuries between April 2007 and August 2008 were evaluated prospectively. All patients were reviewed on the basis of age, gender, time of injury and how it(More)
PURPOSE To determine demographic, etiologic, clinical characteristics, visual outcome, and the factors affecting visual prognosis in children with open globe injuries. METHODS The medical records of 82 patients under the age of 16 years who presented with open globe injuries from January 1998 to January 2009 were retrospectively examined. Age, sex,(More)
Ligneous conjunctivitis (LC) is a rare form of bilateral chronic recurrent disease in which thick membranes form on the palpebral conjunctiva and other mucosal sites. We report the clinical features and describe the management of two cases. Case 1 was an 8-month-old patient with bilateral membranous conjunctivitis. Case 2 was a 5-year-old patient with(More)
PURPOSE To investigate changes in corneal parameters and the tear film after botulinum toxin-A (BTX-A) injection in patients with blepharospasm or hemifacial spasm. METHODS Twelve patients with benign essential blepharospasm and 30 with hemifacial spasm treated with BTX-A were included in this study. Disease severity was evaluated using the Jankovic(More)
OBJECTIVE Involutional ectropion and entropion are characterized by excessive horizontal eyelid length, which is thought to be secondary to laxity of the medial and lateral canthal tendons and to the stretching of the tarsus. Histopathological features of the surgical eyelid specimens from patients with involutional ectropion and entropion were evaluated.(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thickness in migraine patients with unilateral headache. METHODS A total of 58 patients diagnosed with migraine headache consistently occurring on the same side and 58 age- and sex-matched healthy subjects were evaluated in this cross-sectional study. RNFL thickness was measured using spectral-domain(More)
