PURPOSE To assess choroidal thickness changes in young adults with systemic arterial hypertension. METHODS This prospective study comprised 80 hypertensive patients and 80 healthy control subjects. Choroidal thickness was measured with spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) (RS-3000, Nidek). Choroidal thickness was obtained at the subfovea,(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this study was to evaluate choroidal thickness changes during acute attacks of familial Mediterranean fever (FMF). METHODS Fifty patients with FMF and 50 healthy controls were included. Choroidal thickness of each participant was measured at the foveola and horizontal nasal and temporal quadrants at 500-µm intervals to 1,500 µm from the(More)
OBJECTIVES To explore choroidal thickness (ChT) and retinal thickness (RT) changes in patients with type 1 diabetes mellitus (DM). METHODS Sixty patients with Type 1 DM and 60 age- and sex-matched healthy controls were included in this prospective case-control clinical study. All patients underwent a complete ophthalmological examination. ChT of each(More)

Dear Editor, We have read the article entitled as BSubfoveal choroidal thickness as a predictor of treatment response to antivascular endothelial growth factor therapy for polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy^ by Kim et al. with interest [1]. The authors demonstrated that the mean subfoveal choroidal thickness (CT) was 273±117 μm, and choroidal vascular(More)
PURPOSE To report and to analyze the efficacy of horizontal rectus muscle transposition and inferior oblique muscle weakening in terms of pattern correction for patients with V pattern. METHODS The review of the medical files identified 55 patients who had esotropia (ET) or exotropia (XT) with V pattern. The primary outcome measure was the amount of V(More)
PURPOSE This study explores retinal structural changes in type 1 diabetes without clinically diagnosed diabetic retinopathy (DR). METHODS Peripapillary retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thickness, macular ganglion cell complex (GCC) thickness, and macular thickness (MT) were measured in 90 type 1 diabetic patients by using spectral domain optical coherence(More)
Renal carcinoid tumor is an exceedingly rare malignancy. A 57-year-old man with a renal carcinoid tumor discovered after metastasizing to intraocular and bilateral orbital structures is described. The patient presented with a blind painful OS and a right superotemporal subconjunctival mass. Imaging studies revealed a large left intraocular tumor, a mass in(More)
