Charles Bonnet syndrome (CBS) is a rare condition that encompasses three clinical features: complex visual hallucinations, ocular pathology causing visual deterioration, and preserved cognitive status. Common associated ocular pathologies include age-related macular degeneration, glaucoma, and cataracts. Several theories have been proposed to try to explain(More)
To investigate the effect of pituitary adenoma compressing the optic chiasm on multifocal visual evoked potential (mfVEP) responses and to compare these responses with visual field defects seen on static automated perimetry (SAP). Eight eyes of four subjects (median age, 41.50 years; interquartile range, 33–51 years) who were diagnosed with pituitary(More)
Advancements in physics, computers, and imaging science in the last century have seen neuro-imaging evolving from a plain X-ray to computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging scans, noninvasive angiography, and special sequences such as fat suppression, fluid attenuation recovery and diffusion-weighted imaging. A prompt prescription of an appropriate(More)
PURPOSE To investigate the effect of optic neuritis (ON), ischemic optic neuropathy (ION) and compressive optic neuropathy (CON) on multifocal visual evoked potential (mfVEP) amplitudes and latencies, and to compare the parameters among three optic nerve disorders. MATERIALS AND METHODS mfVEP was recorded for 71 eyes of controls and 48 eyes of optic nerve(More)
Optic nerve glioma is the most common optic nerve tumour. However, it has an unpredictable natural history. The treatment of optic nerve gliomas has changed considerably over the past few years. Chemotherapy and radiation therapy can now stabilize and in some cases improve the vision of patients with optic nerve gliomas. The treatment of optic nerve glioma(More)
Brainstem anesthesia is a serious complication that has been reported to occur more commonly with retrobulbar anesthesia compared to peribulbar anesthesia. We herein report a case of contralateral third nerve palsy following administration of peribulbar anesthesia for cataract surgery. Two hours after the surgery, the patient recovered completely without(More)
Aripiprazole is a drug belonging to the group of atypical antipsychotics. Ocular side effects of aripiprazole are rare. We report a case of transient myopia in a 33-year-old male who was being treated for schizophrenia with oral quetiapine and was recently supplemented with aripiprazole. One month after the addition of aripiprazole the patient reported(More)
PURPOSE To report on tamoxifen crystalline maculopathy in an 80-year-old patient and to review the ocular side effects of oral tamoxifen. METHODS We report a case of an 80-year-old female patient who presented to our ophthalmic institute with painless gradual progressive diminution of vision in both eyes. She had a history of surgery for breast cancer(More)
AIMS The aim was to assess the etiology of sixth nerve palsy and on the basis of our data, to formulate a diagnostic algorithm for the management in sixth nerve palsy. DESIGN Retrospective chart review. RESULTS Of the 104 neurologically isolated cases, 9 cases were attributable to trauma, and 95 (86.36%) cases were classified as nontraumatic,(More)
We report a case of acute, bilateral and severe vision loss after inadvertent consumption of a large quantity of the homoeopathic medication Arnica-30. Severe vomiting which required hospitalization preceded visual symptoms. In the acute stage, pupillary responses to light were absent and fundus examination was normal. Vision loss followed a fluctuating(More)
