OBJECTIVE Our study aimed to characterize the natural course of vitreomacular traction (VMT) syndrome, on which discrepancies have been reported in previous publications, by spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT). DESIGN Retrospective chart review. PARTICIPANTS A total of 23 eyes of 23 patients with idiopathic symptomatic VMT syndrome(More)
PURPOSE To investigate clinical characteristics of Purtscher-like retinopathy and its clinical implications among patients with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). DESIGN Observational case series. METHODS setting: Tertiary medical center. patient population: Patients with SLE who were diagnosed with Purtscher-like retinopathy between 2002 and 2013.(More)
To evaluate the biocompatibility of subretinal implanted parylene-based Ti/Pt microelectrode arrays (MEA). Eyes were enucleated 3 months after MEAs were implanted into the subretinal space of rabbits. Morphological changes of the retinas were investigated by H&E staining. Immunohistochemical staining for glial fibrillary acidic protein and opsin were(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to evaluate the surgical outcome of combined hamartomas of the retina and retinal pigment epithelium in five patients. METHODS In this interventional retrospective case series study, five patients with combined hamartomas of the retina and retinal pigment epithelium received vitrectomy and epiretinal component(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE Studies using sterilized air in chronic idiopathic macular holes show varying success rates, and the impact of a shorter duration of tamponade on photoreceptor layer recovery is not fully elucidated. PATIENTS AND METHODS Surgical outcomes of 35 cases (seven in stage 3 and 28 in stage 4) were assessed for best corrected visual(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the efficacy of surgical treatment for traumatized eyes with no light perception (NLP). METHOD We performed surgical treatment of vitrectomy on 11 eyes with NLP of 11 patients. The patients with LP or more than LP after the operations were followed up from 6 to 24 months (mean, 11 months). RESULTS Postoperatively, 7 of 11 patients(More)
PURPOSE To describe a rare case of sympathetic ophthalmia with subretinal hypopyon. METHODS Observational case report. RESULTS A 41-year-old man was diagnosed with sympathetic ophthalmia in his left eye. Oral prednisone was started. Three days later, he developed an inferior exudative retinal detachment with an underlying hypopyon. The exudative retinal(More)
PURPOSE To describe the characteristics of macular lesions after eye trauma using spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (OCT). METHODS We retrospectively reviewed and described 2-dimensional (2D) and 3-dimensional (3D) spectral-domain OCT characteristics of 24 consecutive eyes of 24 cases that were identified with macular lesions after eye trauma.(More)
