PURPOSE To compare anterior segment parameters using quantitative imaging by anterior segment optical coherence tomography (AS-OCT) and ultrasound biomicroscopy (UBM). SETTING Tertiary-care glaucoma research center. METHODS Sixty-three eyes of 63 subjects had anterior segment evaluation by AS-OCT (Visante-Zeiss) and UBM (Paradigm). Central corneal(More)
PURPOSE To study the current profile of secondary glaucomas for their incidence and to identify risk factors. MATERIALS AND METHODS In this retrospective chart review, 2997 patients newly diagnosed and referred with glaucoma to our tertiary glaucoma center in the year 2005 were included. Evaluation of all cases was done on the basis of a detailed history(More)
AIM To evaluate the role of distance and near stereoacuity and fusional vergence in patients with intermittent exotropia [X(T)] and their change after surgery. MATERIALS AND METHODS This prospective interventional institution-based clinical study included 31 cases of X(T) requiring surgery and 33 age, sex-matched controls. All subjects underwent complete(More)
We describe a technique that uses a small-gauge, single-port, sutureless transconjunctival limited pars plana vitrectomy to facilitate phacoemulsification in eyes with a shallow anterior chamber and high intraocular pressure (phacomorphic glaucoma). These eyes have positive vitreous pressure, and anterior chamber formation with an ophthalmic viscosurgical(More)
PURPOSE This case-control study was conducted to evaluate autonomic function activity and reactivity in patients with central serous chorioretinopathy (CSCR), because stress and type A personality, known risk factors, are also related to autonomic nervous system activity. METHODS Patients with CSCR were selected from the outpatient department and medical(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the feasibility and stability of ocular alignment after single-stage adjustable strabismus surgery (SSASS) performed under topical anesthesia. MATERIALS AND METHODS Forty-five patients of concomitant exodeviations were randomized into three groups of 15 cases each and were operated with three different techniques: Group I -(More)
Ultrasound biomicroscopy (UBM) is a high-resolution ultrasound technique that allows noninvasive in vivo imaging of structural details of the anterior ocular segment at near light microscopic resolution and provides detailed assessment of anterior segment structures, including those obscured by normal anatomic and pathologic relations. We summarize UBM(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the anterior segment in opaque grafts with post-penetrating keratoplasty glaucoma (PPKG) by using ultrasound biomicroscopy (UBM). METHODS An observational clinical case series of patients with opaque corneal grafts with PPKG who underwent UBM examination of the anterior chamber is reported. Indication for keratoplasty, lens status,(More)
Phacoemulsification after vitrectomy is associated with several intraoperative problems. We describe the use of bimanual microincision cataract surgery using an 18-gauge needle as the irrigating chopper combined with silicone oil removal in a vitrectomized eye. This technique may offer a safe alternative to standard phacoemulsification in such cases.
