Advances in optical coherence tomography have enabled a better appreciation of the role of pathologic choroidal changes in a variety of retinal disease. A "pachychoroid" (pachy-[prefix]: thick) is defined as an abnormal and permanent increase in choroidal thickness often showing dilated choroidal vessels and other structural alterations of the normal(More)
INTRODUCTION Vogt-Koyanagi-Harada (VKH) prognosis depends on early recognition and treatment; chronic disease may be developed when either delayed or inadequate treatment is performed, whereas other cases despite correct treatment are refractory to different drugs and also become chronic. We report a case of refractory VKH controlled with rituximab(More)
INTRODUCTION Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is major social and health problem in industrialised societies. The contribution of the new diagnostic techniques, mainly spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT), has led to a better understanding of this disease. AIM To review the current clinical classification of AMD, to describe the new(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the safety and efficacy of intravitreal dexamethasone implant (Ozurdex) for treating refractory macular edema in retinal vascular diseases. METHODS This is a retrospective consecutive series of 53 eyes with refractory macular edema secondary to central retinal vein occlusion (13 eyes), branch retinal vein occlusion (14 eyes), and(More)
Ocular inflammatory disorders constitute a sight-threatening group of diseases that might be managed according to their severity. Their treatment guidelines experience constant changes with new agents that improve the results obtained with former drugs. Nowadays we can make use of a five step protocol in which topical, periocular and systemic(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to determine the efficacy of an intraoperative intravitreal pegaptanib injection during phacoemulsification in preventing the development of pseudophakic cystoid macular edema (CME) following cataract surgery. METHODS This prospective, controlled pilot study was carried out at the Department of Ophthalmology, Nuevo(More)
BACKGROUND Oxidative stress (OS) and its biomarkers are the biochemical end point of the imbalance between reactive oxygen species (ROS) production and the ability of the antioxidant (AOX) biological systems to fight against oxidative injury. OBJECTIVE We reviewed the role of OS and its downstream signaling in aging eyes. METHODS A search of the(More)
PURPOSE To describe the natural course, visual outcomes, and anatomic changes and provide histologic correlates in eyes with intraretinal hyperreflective foci associated with acquired vitelliform lesions. DESIGN Retrospective cohort study and imaging-histology correlation in a single donor eye. METHODS participants: Patients with intraretinal(More)
Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is one of the main socioeconomical health issues worldwide. AMD has a multifactorial etiology with a variety of risk factors. Smoking is the most important modifiable risk factor for AMD development and progression. The present review summarizes the epidemiological studies evaluating the association between smoking and(More)
