This retrospective study included 10 eyes of 9 patients diagnosed with microsporidial keratitis. All of them were known to contract this disease after taking baths in hot springs. The disease was diagnosed based on detecting microsporidia in corneal scrapings using Gram stain and the modified Kinyoun's acid-fast stain. The specimens from the last six(More)
PURPOSE To investigate the efficacy of intravitreal injection of anti-vascular endothelial growth factor agents for Stage 4 retinopathy of prematurity. METHODS Retrospective case series study.

PURPOSE To report two cases of Pseudomonas aeruginosa corneal ulcers as a complication of overnight orthokeratology lens wear. METHODS Case report. RESULTS Two 11-year-old girls with acute central corneal ulcers were referred to our hospital. In both cases, the ulcers were about 2 mm in diameter, located centrally, contained dense cellular infiltration,(More)
PURPOSE To determine whether corneal biomechanical properties and intraocular pressure (IOP) are affected by eye rubbing and breath holding. METHODS Corneal hysteresis, corneal resistance factor, corneal compensated IOP (IOPcc), and Goldmann equivalent IOP (IOPg) were measured on both eyes of 40 subjects. Measurements were taken at baseline before eye(More)
Tyrosinemia type II (Richner-Hanhart syndrome) is a rare autosomal recessive disease with deficiency of tyrosine aminotransferase and subsequently increasing level of serum tyrosine.

PURPOSE The corneal status of patients with primary angle-closure glaucoma (PACG) with a history of acute attack was investigated. METHODS This cross-sectional study included 40 eyes of PACG patients with an earlier documented symptomatic acute angle-closure attack (aPACG), 40 uninvolved fellow eyes of aPACG patients (fPACG), 44 eyes of chronic PACG(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the efficacy of astigmatic keratotomy (AK) by paired linear (transverse)-long incisions within a small optical zone in older patients with 3.00 diopters (D) or more of astigmatism who are intolerant of contact lenses, spectacles, or both. DESIGN Prospective, noncomparative case series. PARTICIPANTS Twenty-one eyes (20 patients; age(More)

METHODS A prospective, interventional cases series study was conducted in patients with ME secondary to perfused retinal vein occlusions (RVOs), who were treated with intravitreal(More)
PURPOSE Our aim was to evaluate the incidence, risk factors, pathogens, use of systemic and intravitreal antibiotics, and outcome of traumatic endophthalmitis after open globe injury with retained intraocular foreign body (RIOFB). METHODS Patients with open globe injury and RIOFB complicated by endophthalmitis were enrolled and retrospectively studied in(More)
