PURPOSE To compare the changes in macular sensitivity (microperimetry) and macular thickness with different degrees of diabetic macular edema. METHODS Sixty-one eyes of 32 consecutive diabetic patients were included in this cross-sectional study. All included eyes underwent functional and morphologic examination of the macular area. Best corrected visual(More)
PURPOSE To investigate the effects of subfoveal choroidal neovascularizzation (CNV) secondary to age-related macular degeneration (AMD) on macular functional parameters quantified with an automatic fundus perimeter. METHODS 118 eyes of 98 consecutive patients with subfoveal CNV secondary to AMD were evaluated. Best corrected visual acuity (ETDRS charts),(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate if retinal sensitivity threshold obtained with an automatic fundus perimeter may be compared with a standard perimeter retinal threshold. METHODS Automatic full-threshold fundus perimetry (microperimetry) of the macular area (10 degrees grid, 37 stimulated points) was quantified with a new automatic fundus perimeter (MP1(More)
To describe the evolution and management over time of scleral necrosis as a complication after radiation therapy for uveal melanomas. Retrospective nonrandomized case series. Twenty-three patients (12 male, 11 female; median age 56.4 years; range, 30–73 years) treated with a single plaque therapy (cobalt-60 (Co60) or iodine-125 (I125) (1.5% of treated(More)
Monosomy 3 is a highly specific marker for poor prognosis in posterior uveal melanoma. Unfortunately, cytogenetic prognostication is limited to enucleated eyes or resected tumors. The aim of this study was to evaluate mid-term natural history and safety of in vivo detection of chromosome 3 status in posterior uveal melanomas undergoing plaque brachytherapy.(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate prospectively, on a long-term range, the clinical outcomes of transpupillary thermotherapy (TTT) as primary treatment of selected choroidal melanoma. METHODS Seventy-seven eyes of 77 patients affected by small posterior choroidal melanoma were treated with TTT as a sole treatment, using an infrared diode laser at 810 nm according to a(More)
PURPOSE To describe the long term outcome of patients with subfoveal, occult choroidal neovascularization (CNV) secondary to age-related macular degeneration (AMD) treated with subthreshold transpupillary thermotherapy. METHODS 82 eyes of 82 consecutive patients with subfoveal occult CNV secondary to AMD were treated with subthreshold transpupillary(More)
