The aim of the study was to evaluate retinal thickness in macular area (before and after surgery), and its correlation with visual acuity in patients with retinal detachment treated conventional surgery. Twenty eyes of 20 patients, treated in our clinic and eyes of 20 healthy subjects without any ocular pathology were evaluated. Retinal thickness in macular(More)
Retinal pathologies that are detected too late and/or left untreated can seriously damage eyesight. It is important to monitor the retina and react to any pathological changes. A fast, accurate, non-invasive, and even three-dimensional retina examination is the optical coherence tomography (OCT). In this paper we propose a new automated classification(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate a new method for volumetric imaging of the preretinal space (also known as the subhyaloid, subcortical, or retrocortical space) and investigate differences in preretinal space volume in vitreomacular adhesion (VMA) and vitreomacular traction (VMT). METHODS Nine patients with VMA and 13 with VMT were prospectively evaluated. Automatic(More)
