PURPOSE To evaluate the risk factors in the development of mild and severe retinopathy of prematurity (ROP). METHODS All infants (n = 88) screened for ROP at a neonatal intensive care unit over a 2-year period with gestational age <or=34 weeks and follow-up of 43 weeks postconception were included. The findings were classified in accordance with the(More)
PURPOSE To assess the value of indocyanine green angiography (ICGA) for demonstrating choroidal vascular abnormalities in patients with nonarteritic anterior ischemic optic neuropathy (NAION). METHODS The authors compared the ICGA and fluorescein fundus angiography characteristics of peripapillary circulation in 11 patients with acute NAION. There were 7(More)
PURPOSE To determine whether testing for the Pulfrich phenomenon (PP) can be used as a tool to assess the need for and optimal timing of second-eye cataract surgery. METHODS A total of 61 patients with logMAR 0 visual acuity (VA) after cataract surgery in one eye and logMAR 0.2-0.7 VA in the other eye were tested for PP using a computer-generated(More)
We report on a 7-month-old boy with Micro syndrome who was referred for assessment of mental-motor retardation and reduced vision with cataract. The characteristics of Micro syndrome are mental retardation, microcephaly, congenital cataract, microcornea, microphthalmia, agenesis/hypoplasia of the corpus callosum, and hypogenitalism. The differential(More)
Laurence-Moon-Bardet-Biedl syndome is an autosomal recessive condition characterized by retinal dystrophy, obesity, mental retardation, distal limb anomaly, hypogonadism, and renal dysfunction. The symptoms vary among families and even among affected siblings. Certain clinical signs have been used to identify subgroups of patients with this complex(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the effect of different bevacizumab concentrations on retinal endothelial cell proliferation, retinal structures and apoptotic activity after intravitreal injection in a retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) mouse model. METHODS A total of 35 of C57BL/J6 mice were exposed to 75±2% oxygen from postnatal day 7 to postnatal day 12. On day 12,(More)
Focal orbital amyloidosis is a rare entity and little is known about its magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) features. In this case report, imaging features of a case of focal orbital amyloidosis presenting as a mass have been documented together with its histopathological findings. On MRI, a well-defined mass was seen as isointense with rectus muscle on(More)
Fabry's disease is associated with high incidence of thrombosis in hemizygous males and heterozygous females. We describe a woman with Fabry's disease who developed hemi-central retinal vein occlusion during the follow-up. The vein occlusion showed a fulminant course ending with a painful blind eye within a short period. Fabry's disease should be considered(More)
PURPOSE To determine and compare the amount of apoptosis and changes in rabbit corneal endothelial cell morphology after intracameral administration of different anesthetic agents. SETTING Department of Ophthalmology, Baskent University Medical Faculty, Ankara, Turkey. METHODS Right eyes of 64 Vienna white rabbits were injected intracamerally with(More)
PURPOSE To compare 4 methods for intraoperative pupil dilatation in eyes with pseudoexfoliation syndrome and insufficient pupil size during phacoemulsification. DESIGN Prospective, randomized, comparative, interventional case series. PARTICIPANTS Forty eyes of 40 patients with pseudoexfoliation and maximally dilated pupil size smaller than 3.5 mm. (More)
