HIV retinopathy is the most common non-infectious complication in the eyes of HIV-positive individuals. Oncotic lesions in the retinal nerve fiber layer, referred to as cotton wool spots (CWS), and intraretinal (IR) hemorrhages are frequently observed but are not unique to this pathology. HIV-positive patients have impaired color vision and contrast(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the repeatability and reproducibility of manual choroidal volume (CV) measurements by spectral domain- optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) using enhanced depth imaging (EDI). METHODS Sixty eyes of 32 patients with or without any ocular chorioretinal diseases were enrolled prospectively. Thirty-one choroidal scans were performed on(More)
The laser photocoagulation is now treatment of choice for various retinovascular disorders. Conventional slit-lamp based laser delivery systems have many limitations including, questionable accuracy, need of contact lens with local anesthesia, and inadvertent damage to fovea. Navigated laser system, a fundus camera based laser delivery system with computer(More)
AIM To evaluate the efficacy of a standardised combination therapy for clinically significant diabetic macular oedema using bevacizumab injections followed by navigated laser photocoagulation to stabilise retinal thickness. METHODS In this pilot study we retrospectively reviewed charts and imaging of 23 eyes treated with the standardised combination(More)
PURPOSE To determine the presence of structural changes in HIV retinae (i.e., photoreceptor density and retinal thickness in the macula) compared with age-matched HIV-negative controls. METHODS Cohort of patients with known HIV under CART (combination Antiretroviral Therapy) treatment were examined with a flood-illuminated retinal AO camera to assess the(More)
