To analyse biofeedback training by microperimeter MP-1 (Nidek Technologies) on patients with Age Related Maculopathy (AMD). We enrolled 15 patients (10 female and 5 male) and examined total of 27 eyes with AMD. All the patient underwent 10 training sessions of 10 min for each eye, performed once a week using the MP-1 biofeedback examination. Statistical(More)
PURPOSE The aim of the present study is to evaluate the roles of TGFs β1 and β2, glial cell line-derived neurotrophic factor (GDNF), and nerve growth factor (NGF) in the pathogenesis of idiopathic epiretinal membrane (ERM). METHODS Eight patients, six males and two females, with an average age of 60.25 ± 17.16 years (range, 33-75 years) who were affected(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES To evaluate the role of antioxidant drugs in the tonometric increase that follows the closed eyelid test (CET), a predicitive test for glaucoma, after administration of antioxidant substances was observed. MATERIALS AND METHODS 30 subjects of 54.57+/=5.62 years, 13 males and 17 females, were examined by measuring the ocular(More)
Ocular complications associated with cutaneous lupus erythematosus (CLE) are less studied compared with those ones associated with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). The main ocular sites involved in patients affected by discoid lupus erythematosus (DLE) are eyelids followed by orbit and periorbit, the least being cornea. The most common complications are(More)
To prospectively investigate morphologic and functional changes after intravitreal bevacizumab for persistent diffuse and clinically significant diabetic macular edema. In total, 26 eyes in 26 patients were treated with three intravitreal injections of bevacizumab (Avastin™) given at 4-week intervals. Study parameters included: visual acuity (VA), perceived(More)
AIM To evaluate the ciliary body and peripheral retina in degenerative retinoschisis associated with pars plana cysts using ultrasound biomicroscopy (UBM). METHODS 18 eyes of 12 patients with degenerative retinoschisis associated with pars plana cysts were selected through binocular indirect ophthalmoscopy and Goldmann three mirror lens examination, both(More)
Idiosyncratic reactions to a large number of drugs have been reported to cause choroidal detachment and secondary angle-closure glaucoma (ACG). We report a case of bilateral acute ACG and peculiar choroidal effusion following administration of oral acetazolamide immediately after cataract surgery. Few cases of acute secondary ACG with choroidal effusion and(More)
The purpose of this study was to measure, for clinical and surgical utility, the distance between the posterior hyaloid and the internal limiting membrane using a spectral domain optical-coherence tomography (SD-OCT) device. Eight eyes of eight patients with subclinical partial posterior vitreous detachment (PPVD) with vitreomacular traction syndrome were(More)

INTRODUCTION The authors consider the type and the incidence of the adverse effects due to the interaction between ophthalmic drugs and general anaesthesia in pediatric ophthalmic surgery. PATIENTS AND METHODS The experience included 176 general anaesthesia in 100 children aged between 9,2 months and 11,4 years (mean age 4,9 years). RESULTS In the 100(More)
