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)
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)
Advanced (proliferative) stage of diabetic retinopathy (DR) is indicated by the growth of thin, fragile and highly unregulated vessels, neovascularization (NV). In order to identify proliferative diabetic retinopathy (PDR), our approach models the micro-pattern of local variations using texture based analysis and quantifies the structural changes in vessel(More)
Neovascularization (NV) is a characteristic of the onset of sight-threatening stage of DR, called proliferative DR (PDR). Identification of PDR requires modeling of these unregulated ill-formed vessels, and other associated signs of PDR. We present an approach that models the micro-pattern of local variations (using texture based analysis) and quantifies(More)
Diabetic macular edema (DME) is one of the vision-impairing manifestations of Diabetic Retinopathy (DR). Early detection and treatment of DME can prevent permanent vision loss in people suffering from DR. However, the clinical detection through biomicroscopy is time-consuming. In this paper, a computer-assisted grading method has been proposed to determine(More)
Myasthenia gravis (MG) is a disease that affects the neuro-muscular junction resulting in classical symptoms of variable muscle weakness and fatigability. It is called the great masquerader owing to its varied clinical presentations. Very often, a patient of MG may present to the ophthalmologist given that a large proportion of patients with systemic(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)
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)
