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 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)
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)
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)
BACKGROUND 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. METHODS This is a prospective comparative study comprised of 40 eyes from 37 consecutive patients. Twenty eyes (19 patients)(More)
PURPOSE To investigate the short-term efficacy of subthreshold micropulse yellow laser photocoagulation in the treatment of chronic central serous chorioretinopathy (CSC). METHODS 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(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the change of axial length (AL), intraocular pressure (IOP), and corneal astigmatism after scleral shortening with scleral invagination in the rabbit eye. METHODS The authors performed scleral shortening (3 mm) with scleral invagination in two groups of 6 eyes each: 180 degrees (group 1) and 360 degrees (group 2). RESULTS Average AL(More)
A 56-year-old Korean woman presented with decreased visual acuity of the right eye. She had a history of two photodynamic therapy treatments for choroidal neovascularization (CNV) due to angioid streaks in her left eye with central scarring and low visual acuity. She was diagnosed with subfoveal CNV due to angioid streaks in her right eye and treated with(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)
BACKGROUND To study the clinical outcome and complications of intravitreal bevacizumab (IVB) versus triamcinolone acetonide (IVT) injections at the end of vitrectomy in patients with diabetic vitreous hemorrhage. METHODS This is a retrospective comparative case study comprised of 156 eyes from 139 consecutive patients who underwent pars plana vitrectomy(More)
