PURPOSE To ascertain whether intravitreal triamcinolone given for subretinal neovascularization is associated with an ocular pressure rise. METHODS A total of 113 patients with angiographically proven subretinal neovascularization were enrolled into a prospective study of the effects of intravitrea triamcinolone. Intraocular pressure was one of the(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to investigate choroidal perfusion in glaucoma, using histological and angiographic techniques. METHODS We examined the choroidal vasculature in clinicopathological slides from 25 cases of primary open-angle glaucoma, five cases of optic atrophy, and 18 normal eyes. We measured choroidal thickness at fixed distances(More)
BACKGROUND Visual outcomes of patients following vitrectomy and peeling of visually significant epiretinal membranes were assessed to determine the influence of specific perioperative factors and surgical complications on final visual acuity and functional vision. METHODS In an unmatched, consecutive surgical series, vitrectomy and membrane peeling were(More)
AIMS To identify the contributory factors associated with different sites of occlusion and the presence or absence of optic nerve head swelling (ONHS). METHODS 874 cases of retinal venous occlusion (RVO) were prospectively examined at a tertiary referral centre and classified according to three defined sites of occlusion: arteriovenous crossing RVO(More)
PURPOSE To investigate the association of cup-to-disc ratio (CDR), intraocular pressure (IOP), and primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG) with the site of retinal venous occlusion (RVO) and optic nerve head swelling (ONHS). DESIGN Prospective observational case series. PARTICIPANTS Four hundred fifty consecutive cases from a single tertiary referral center.(More)
OBJECTIVES To quantify and categorize the lesions of neovascular age-related macular degeneration on the basis of fluorescein angiographic morphology. METHODS We retrospectively reviewed 3580 consecutive cases of neovascular age-related macular degeneration. The lesions were graded in terms of the location, size, and composition and categorized according(More)
PURPOSE To report an Australian series of macular hole surgery by pars plana vitrectomy and fluid-gas exchange, and to identify factors influencing the outcome of the surgery through meta-analysis of the literature. METHODS Fifty-six consecutive cases of macular hole were treated by pars plana vitrectomy, fluid-gas exchange and face-down positioning for(More)
group as reported in the result section (n = 38 and 62, respectively) to the number depicted in Table 2 (n = 41 and 59, respectively). The potentially important finding that a negative association (although statistically insignificant) between CCT and HRT II optic disc area in glaucoma patients should be carefully considered. This is in line with several(More)
PURPOSE Activated protein C (APC) resistance has recently been reported as conferring a sevenfold increase in the risk of venous thrombosis. It is linked to a genetic mutation in the factor V gene which occurs commonly (about 2% to 4% of the community have the mutation). Glaucoma patients with nerve fibre layer (NFL) haemorrhages on the optic disc and(More)
PURPOSE To examine quality of life and associated factors in people with Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD). METHODS One hundred and forty-five AMD participants (mean age 78.0 ± 7.7 years) and 104 age- and gender- matched controls (mean age 78.1 ± 5.8 years) comprised the study populations for this case-control study. Depressive symptoms were measured(More)
