PURPOSE This study aimed to report an outbreak of early-onset endophthalmitis caused by Fusarium species following cataract surgery. METHODS The study was designed retrospectively to review microbiologic and medical records of eight cases of endophthalmitis caused by Fusarium species after cataract surgery performed in the same operating room and on the(More)
AIM To determine if therapeutic management programmes for type 2 diabetes that include self-monitoring of blood glucose (SMBG) result in greater reductions in glycated haemoglobin (HbA1c) compared with programmes without SMBG in non-insulin requiring patients. METHODS Multicentre, randomized, parallel-group trial. A total of 610 patients were randomized(More)
PURPOSE To assess the efficacy and safety of corneal wavefront-guided custom laser in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) to correct refractive errors and higher-order aberrations (HOAs) after penetrating keratoplasty (PKP). SETTING Beyoglu Eye Training and Research Hospital, Istanbul, Turkey. DESIGN Noncomparative case series. METHODS The study comprised(More)
The purpose of this study is to report the intermediate-term surgical outcomes of patients with iridocorneal endothelial syndrome-related glaucoma. The medical records of four patients (five eyes) surgery (Ahmed glaucoma valve implantation surgery and EX-PRESS mini shunt) were retrospectively reviewed. Median follow-up after glaucoma surgery was 24 (15–36)(More)
We aimed to describe congenital keratoglobus with blue sclera in two siblings with overlapping Marshall/Stickler phenotype. Two sisters (ages four and six) with bilateral high astigmatism were evaluated by slit-lamp microscopy. Corneal topography and pachymetry maps were also obtained. Slit-lamp examination revealed that both corneas were globular in shape(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the efficacy of intravitreal ranibizumab (IVR) combined with posterior sub-Tenon injection of triamcinolone acetonide (STTA) for treatment of diabetic macular edema (DME) with serous retinal detachment (SRD). METHODS Eighty-five eyes of 65 patients with DME and SRD were enrolled in this retrospective study. Fifty-eight eyes were(More)
PURPOSE To investigate the relationship between the Bruch membrane opening-minimum rim width (BMO-MRW) (global and temporal) parameters with spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) and visual field (VF) sensitivity on the 10-2 test in patients with advanced glaucoma. MATERIALS AND METHODS This cross-sectional, observational study included a(More)
CONTEXT The acute effects of cigarette smoking on pupil size and ocular wavefront aberrations (OWA) have been previously documented. The accommodation status of the eye is well known to be related to ocular aberrations. No previous study has evaluated the impact of cigarette smoking on the accommodation status of the eye. This study presents intriguing(More)
PURPOSE To perform in vivo imaging of the Schlemm's canal (SC) with anterior segment spectral-domain optical coherence tomography [AS-spectral-domain (SD)-OCT] and also to measure its biometric parameters including the SC length and SC area in patients with pseudoexfoliation (PEX) glaucoma. METHODS Forty-one consecutive patients with PEX glaucoma and 41(More)
