BACKGROUND/AIMS A retrospective consecutive case series to evaluate the efficacy of re-operation in patients with persistent or recurrent idiopathic full-thickness macular hole after initial surgery with internal limiting membrane peel (ILM). METHODS 491 patients underwent surgery for full-thickness macular hole from January 2004 to November 2007.(More)
PURPOSE To quantify the magnitude of retinal arteriolar vascular reactivity in diabetic patients stratified by severity of retinopathy and in age-matched control subjects. The sample comprised 21 nondiabetic control subjects (group 1), 19 patients with no clinically visible DR (group 2), 19 patients with mild-to-moderate nonproliferative DR and without(More)
PURPOSE To quantify the magnitude of change of retinal arteriolar hemodynamics induced by a combined isocapnic hyperoxia and glucose provocation in diabetic patients with early sight-threatening diabetic retinopathy (DR) and in age-matched control subjects and to compare the response to that of an isocapnic hyperoxia provocation alone. The study hypothesis(More)
OBJECTIVES To estimate the agreement between the macular edema maps (MEMs) of the Retina Module of the Heidelberg Retina Tomograph II (Heidelberg Engineering, Heidelberg, Germany) and contact lens fundus biomicroscopy (FB) and to assess the influence of combining MEM data with the results of short-wavelength automated perimetry (SWAP) and fluorescein(More)
BACKGROUND A position paper based on the collective experiences of Argus II Retinal Prosthesis System investigators to review strategies to optimize outcomes in patients with retinitis pigmentosa undergoing retinal prosthesis implantation. METHODS Retinal surgeons, device programmers, and rehabilitation specialists from Europe, Canada, Middle East, and(More)
Purpose. To present a series of retinal disease cases that were imaged by spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) in order to illustrate the potential and limitations of this new imaging modality. Methods. The series comprised four selected cases (one case each) of age-related macular degeneration (ARMD), diabetic retinopathy (DR), central(More)
The practice and teaching of low vision rehabilitation (LVR) in all university-based ophthalmology programs is mandated by The Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada for the purposes of accreditation. Although formal training is acquired by most, and in spite of an ever-increasing need for practitioners of LVR, few ophthalmologists across the(More)
