PURPOSE The aim of this study was to investigate the relation between recognition visual acuity (RVA) and optokinetic nystagmus (OKN) response exhibited to different bar sizes with varying contrast. METHODS OKN testing was performed in 52 children aged between 3 and 11 years. The children were evaluated in two groups according to their RVA. Group I(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)

Aim: To investigate the effect of octreotide acetate on neovascularization, retinal structures, and apoptotic cell death in an oxygen-induced retinopathy (OIR) mouse model. Materials and methods: A total of 26 C57BL/6J mice were exposed to 75 ± 2% oxygen from postnatal day 7 to 12. On day 12, 12 mice (group C) were injected with 0.1 µg intravitreal(More)
INTRODUCTION Malformations of the cerebellum have been well-known to coexist with abnormalities of the oculomotor system. Rhombencephalosynapsis (RES) is a rare malformation of the cerebellum of unknown etiology in which the vermis is hypoplastic and the two cerebellar hemispheres are fused. The type of oculomotor disorders associated with RES is not well(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)
OBJECTIVES To assess and compare contrast sensitivity function in the previously amblyopic and non-amblyopic "normal" eyes of patients with microtropia and anisometropia who achieved 20/20 visual acuity after occlusion therapy. MATERIALS AND METHODS Contrast sensitivity was tested monocularly on both eyes of 34 successfully treated microtropic and 15(More)
