BACKGROUND Indocyanine-green (ICG) angiography gives additional information in posterior inflammatory conditions by enabling to analyse the choroid. It may become a useful work-up procedure in inflammatory diseases predominantly involving the choroid. Our purpose was to analyse ICG findings and correlate them to fluorescein angiographic and clinical(More)
BACKGROUND The introduction of fundus photography has impacted retinal imaging and retinal screening programs significantly. LITERATURE REVIEW Fundus cameras play a vital role in addressing the cause of preventive blindness. More attention is being turned to developing countries, where infrastructure and access to healthcare are limited. One of the major(More)
BACKGROUND Acute maculopathy is a rare condition of unknown aetiology and Coxsackie virus is known to be associated with this macular chorioretinitis. FINDINGS We report a case of acute unilateral maculopathy in a 35-year-old woman with concurrent hand foot and mouth disease. Furthermore, we display multimodal imaging (colour fundus photographs,(More)
Treatment of the neovascular form of age-related macular degeneration (AMD) has been revolutionized by the introduction of such agents as ranibizumab, bevacizumab, and aflibercept. As a result, the incidence of legal blindness occurring secondary to AMD has fallen dramatically in recent years in many countries. While these agents have undoubtedly been(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to compare optical coherence tomography (OCT) angiography to standard fluorescein angiography (FA) in the grading of diabetic macular ischemia. METHODS In our study, OCT angiography and traditional FA images were acquired from 24 diabetic patients. The level of diabetic macular ischemia in the superficial capillary(More)
Tuberculosis and sarcoidosis are chronic systemic diseases that have similar pulmonary and extra-pulmonary manifestations. Multiple studies have found an epidemiological, molecular, and immunological link between the two. It has been suggested that mycobacterium tuberculosis could be a common pathophysiologic mechanism for tuberculosis and sarcoidosis, and(More)
Intraocular tuberculosis remains a diagnostic and management conundrum for both ophthalmologists and pulmonologists. We analyze the efficacy and safety of anti-tubercular therapy (ATT) in patients with intraocular tuberculosis and factors associated with favorable outcome. Twenty-eight studies are included in this review, with a total of 1,917 patients.(More)
The choroid is a highly vascular structure; therefore, a wide range of systemic conditions can affect it. Conversely, choroid health may also give us insight into systemic health. With the emergence of optical coherence tomography, there has been a surge in the research on choroidal thickness and factors affecting it. Studies regarding the effect of(More)
PURPOSE To study the visual outcome of cataract surgery in eyes with uveitis. METHODS A retrospective analysis of patients with uveitis operated for cataract. RESULTS 106 eyes of 89 patients with uveitis were operated for cataract. In 62.3% eyes (66/106), post-operative follow-up was at least 6 months. There was significant improvement (P < 0.001) in(More)
