Choroidal abnormality manifesting as a bright patchy lesion under infrared monochromatic light has previously been described in neurofibromatosis type I patients in whom the choroid appears normal under conventional ophthalmoscopic examination or on the fluorescein angiogram. We investigated the correlation between patient age and the number of choroidal(More)
Background: A tear of a retinal pigment epithelial detachment (PED) suddenly exposes a large area of bare Bruch's membrane. We report here the case of a patient whom we observed during the gradual, spontaneous development of a PED tear. Method: A 5.25-year case study of a 67-year-old woman with bilateral serous PEDs. Results: Retinal pigment epithelial(More)
PURPOSE To determine the relation between office intraocular pressure (IOP) and 24-hour IOP in patients with primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG) treated with 3 kinds of antiglaucoma eye drops. PATIENTS AND METHODS Subjects were 42 patients with POAG (71 eyes). All were being treated with 3 different topical antiglaucoma eye drops (latanoprost,(More)
A ‘double-ring’ sign may be seen during continuous curvilinear anterior capsulorhexis in cataract surgery. This sign has been attributed to partial splitting of the anterior lens capsule at the continuous curvilinear anterior capsulorhexis edge. Because horizontal intracapsular splits away from the capsule edge have also been reported, a double-ring sign(More)
Multiple evanescent white dot syndrome (MEWDS) is characterized by acute visual loss which is usually spontaneously restored after a few months. While occasional treatments with local or oral steroids have been reported, these are hardly effective. A 25-year-old man, a Sumo wrestler, was diagnosed with MEWDS, and as he wanted a quick recovery to compete in(More)
Only two cases of bacterial endophthalmitis after triamcinolone acetonide (TA)-assisted pars plana vitrectomy (PPV) have been reported. As far as we are aware there has been no report of fungal endophthalmitis occurring after TA-assisted PPV. We report a case of endophthalmitis due to Fusarium after TA-assisted PPV. An otherwise healthy 61-year-old woman(More)
We report here a case in which ciliary detachment related to the preparation of a scleral wound was suspected as the cause of persistent hypotony following 23-gauge vitrectomy for proliferative diabetic retinopathy. Ultrasound biomicroscopy (UBM) was performed following injection of a viscoelastic substance into the anterior chamber to carefully investigate(More)
Non-penetrating trabeculectomy (NPT) is effective in preventing numerous postoperative complications encountered with trabeculectomy. Recently, NPT has been modified to further reduce intraocular pressure (IOP) by combining other techniques. However, these modified NPT methods would make the globe even weaker than NPT alone. Here, we report a case of iris(More)

OBJECTIVE To evaluate the outcome of vitrectomy using only original retinal breaks for subretinal fluid (SRF) drainage during the repair of primary rhegmatogenous retinal detachment (RRD). DESIGN A retrospective consecutive interventional case series. PARTICIPANTS A consecutive series of 112 eyes of 112 patients. METHODS Patients underwent 23-gauge(More)
