PURPOSE To evaluate the extent of neural cell death in eyes with disciform age-related macular degeneration. METHODS Six eyes with disciform degeneration at various stages and five age-matched control eyes were selected for morphometric analysis using digitized light microscopic images. Disciform scars were classified as subneurosensory retinal,(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the extent of neural cell death in eyes with geographic atrophy (GA). METHODS Ten eyes with GA and five age-matched control eyes were selected for morphometric analysis. The nuclei of the ganglion cell, inner nuclear, and outer nuclear layers were counted in contiguous 100-microm segments from 1,500 microm nasal to 1,500 microm(More)
AIM To evaluate the effects and stability of AcrySof toric intraocular lens (IOL) implantation in patients who had combined microincision vitrectomy surgery (MIVS) and phacoemulsification for vitreoretinal diseases and cataract with corneal astigmatism. METHODS A retrospective comparative study with 20 patients (20 eyes) who had combined 23-gauge MIVS and(More)

PURPOSE To evaluate the corneal toxicity of intracameral bevacizumab in rabbit eyes and also the effects of intracameral bevacizumab in neovascular glaucoma patients combined with Ahmed glaucoma valve implantation. MATERIALS AND METHODS Intracameral bevacizumab (1.25 mg/0.05 mL) was injected into 5 eyes of 5 New Zealand white rabbits. A balanced salt(More)
To study the surgically induced astigmatism (SIA) in combined phacoemulsification with 23-gauge transconjunctival sutureless vitrectomy (TSV) versus combined phacoemulsification with 20-gauge standard vitrectomy. This is a prospective comparative study comprised of 40 eyes from 37 consecutive patients. Twenty eyes (19 patients) underwent combined(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the efficacy of a biodegradable intrascleral implant of triamcinolone acetonide (TA) in a rabbit model of experimental uveitis. METHODS A disc-shaped TA implant (1 x 3 mm, containing 6.4 mg of TA), which is made by poly(D,L-lactide) (PLA) and TA, was intrasclerally implanted into eight albino rabbits after a subcutaneous injection of(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to compare the clinical outcomes and complications between 23-gauge transconjunctival sutureless vitrectomy and 20-gauge vitrectomy in patients with proliferative diabetic retinopathy. METHODS This is a retrospective comparative study comprising 101 eyes from 90 consecutive patients who had diabetic vitrectomy due to(More)
To investigate the short-term efficacy of subthreshold micropulse yellow laser photocoagulation in the treatment of chronic central serous chorioretinopathy (CSC). A retrospective case series study was performed from April 2012 to June 2014 at Nune Eye Hospital. A total of ten eyes of ten chronic or chronic recurrent CSC patients received subthreshold(More)
