OBJECTIVES To evaluate the effects of diabetes mellitus, diabetic retinopathy and degree of blood glucose (BG) regulation on retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thickness by using a scanning laser polarimeter (NFA-GDx). METHODS We prospectively assessed RNFL thickness in four groups of patients, who were all age matched. Diabetic patients without diabetic(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the efficacy and safety of high-density silicone oil (HDSO) as an internal retinal tamponade after vitrectomy for complicated retinal detachment. DESIGN Retrospective, non-randomized study. PARTICIPANTS Forty-one eyes of 41 patients who were 5-73 years of age. METHODS Medical records of patients with retinal detachment (RD)(More)
BACKGROUND To report the long-term results of the pars plana lensectomy with double-capsule-supported intraocular lens implantation technique for the treatment of pediatric cataracts. METHODS A lensectomy and an anterior vitrectomy were performed through the pars plana approach, followed by implantation of a posterior chamber intraocular lens (IOL) to the(More)
The aim of this study is to evaluate the changes in intraocular pressure (IOP), central corneal thickness (CCT), and retinal nerve fiber layer thickness (RNFLT) in patients with chronic renal failure undergoing hemodialysis (HD). A complete ophthalmological examination together with IOP, CCT, and RNFLT measurements were performed for each patient both(More)
AIM Ocular surface changes and ocular symptoms may be encountered in patients with chronic renal failure (CRF) undergoing haemodialysis. The ocular surface changes and its relationship with metabolic control in CRF patients were aimed to be emphasized in this study. METHODS Thirty-eight CRF patients (75 eyes) undergoing haemodialysis were enrolled.(More)
PURPOSE Microbiology, clinical perspective of ocular fungal infections, and the experimental models were overviewed. METHODS Review of published studies were evaluated and personal experience was mentioned. In this review, clinical features of keratitis and endogenous and exogenous endophthalmitis are also mentioned, but this article mainly focused on(More)
PURPOSE To compare the optical coherence tomographic (OCT) features with clinical and fluorescein angiographic (FA) findings in patients with diabetic retinopathy. METHODS In a retrospective study ophthalmologic examination together with FA and OCT images were obtained from 195 eyes of 110 patients with different stages of diabetic retinopathy and OCT(More)
We describe a newly diagnosed Turkish adolescent female with Dyskeratosis congenita along with the novel ocular finding of corneal limbal insufficiency. Corneal limbal insufficiency was suggested to be a premature aging sign resulting from a deficiency in corneal stem cell activity, a biological process caused by underlying telomeric defect in this disease.
To evaluate the effect of intravitreal bevacizumab (IVB) on visual function and retinal thickness in patients with refractory diabetic macular edema (DME). Eyes with DME treated with IVB which were resistant to different previous treatments were enrolled in this retrospective, non-randomized series study. Each patient underwent a complete ophthalmic(More)
PURPOSE To determine the safety, effectiveness, and predictability of photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) for the correction of myopia and astigmatism after penetrating keratoplasty. SETTING Gazi University, Medical School, Department of Ophthalmology, Ankara, Turkey. METHODS Photorefractive keratectomy was performed in 16 eyes of 16 patients with(More)
