BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE To assess the outcome of simple excision with preserved human amniotic membrane transplantation in the treatment of primary pterygium. PATIENTS AND METHODS A total of 59 eyes with primary pterygium underwent surgical excision. In Group 1, 28 eyes were treated with simple excision and preserved human amniotic membrane(More)
Background: Our aim was to evaluate the effect of an intraoperative single dose of retinoic acid (RA) or mitomycin C (MMC) in preventing posterior capsule opacification (PCO). Methods: Twenty-seven rabbits were divided randomly into three groups. RA (250 µg/ml) and MMC (0.04 mg/ml) were given 0.1 ml by hydrosection and 0.9 ml into the capsular bag after(More)
Subhyaloid hemorrhage is usually a benign condition that generally improves spontaneously and rarely causes visual loss. However, because subhyaloid hemorrhage may be associated with permanent macular changes before it spontaneously resolves, posterior Nd:YAG hyaloidotomy may be indicated in selected patients. We performed Q-switched Nd:YAG laser posterior(More)
We performed a prospective study in order to elucidate thepredisposing role of axial length and hyperopia in retinal veinocclusions. The study group comprised 39 patients with unilateralcentral retinal vein occlusion (CRVO), 50 patients with unilateralbranch retinal vein occlusion (BRVO), 13 patients with unilateralhemispheric retinal vein occlusion (HRVO)(More)
Purpose: To evaluate pseudoexfoliation (PE) and pre-existent glaucoma in eyes with branch retinal vein occlusion (BRVO) and central retinal vein occlusion (CRVO). Methods: Consecutive eyes with a diagnosis of BRVO (73 eyes of 70 patients) and CRVO (53 eyes of 49 patients) examined between July and December 1998 comprised the study eyes. Age-matched control(More)
PURPOSE To assess the blood flow changes in eyes with central retinal vein occlusion (CRVO) and compare these values with values of fellow eyes and eyes of normal subjects. METHODS 25 eyes of 25 consecutive newly diagnosed patients with CRVO comprised the study group. Their fellow eyes and those of 25 healthy subjects were the control group. All patients(More)
We developed a formula to measure the posterior curvature of the cornea. In our study, real corneal power in 51 eyes was calculated by using anterior and posterior curvatures and corneal thickness. The corneal refractive index was found to be a variable value between 1.3243 and 1.3339 (mean 1.3304 +/- 0.0003).
PURPOSE To present a case with free iris cysts in the anterior chamber and its management with YAG laser. CASE REPORT A 14-year-old boy presenting with the complaint of seeing a small ball-like moving mass in his left eye. RESULTS Slit-lamp examination revealed a pair of free-floating iris cysts located inferiorly in the anterior chamber. After YAG(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the interaction between various widely used intraocular lenses (IOLs) and silicone oils of different viscosities. Four groups of IOLs, including monoblock foldable hydrophilic acrylic IOLs (Morcher, type 92s); monoblock hydrophobic acrylic IOLs (Acrysof-SA60AT, Alcon); single-piece rigid polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA)(More)
Microincisional cataract surgery is a safe procedure with a very short learning period for an experienced cataract surgeon and rollable ultrathin intraocular lenses eliminate the need for enlargement of corneal incision. The purpose of the study was to evaluate the safety and efficacy of cataract surgery through a corneal microincision and implantation of(More)
