AIM To evaluate the long-term results and prognostic factors of intravitreal bevacizumab (IVB) for myopic choroidal neovascularisation (mCNV). METHODS Thirty-two eyes of 30 patients with mCNV were included in a prospective case series. Treatment consisted of three monthly 1.25 mg IVB injections. Best corrected visual acuity (BCVA) and CNV area were(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate long-term outcome of intravitreal anti-vascular endothelial growth factor monotherapy in retinal angiomatous proliferation. METHODS Twenty-one treatment-naive eyes were included in this prospective, interventional case series. Treatment was three monthly injections of bevacizumab and/or ranibizumab with a modified PrONTO-style regimen.(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE Photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) has been extensively evaluated for the correction of myopia. This study was undertaken to assess the safety, efficacy, and reliability of PRK in the correction of hyperopia. PATIENTS AND METHODS There were 28 eyes with refractions of +1 to +7.75 D treated for hyperopia with the Chiron Technolas(More)
The phakomatoses have been traditionally defined as a group of hereditary diseases with variable expressivity characterized by multisystem tumors with possible malignant transformation. The Sturge-Weber syndrome, Klippel-Trenaunay syndrome, and the phakomatosis pigmentovascularis have the facial port-wine stain in common. Numerous pathophysiogenetic(More)
Noteworthy heterogeneity exists in the rare diseases associated with childhood glaucoma. Primary congenital glaucoma is mostly sporadic; however, 10% to 40% of cases are familial. CYP1B1 gene mutations seem to account for 87% of familial cases and 27% of sporadic cases. Childhood glaucoma is classified in primary and secondary congenital glaucoma, further(More)
Topiramate is used in the management of epilepsy and migraine. In the present paper we present a case of bilateral acute angle closure glaucoma associated with myopia following the use of topiramate. The patient was admitted to our ward. Complete ophthalmological examination was carried out along with ultrabiomicroscopy of the anterior segment and confocal(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate peripapillary retinal nerve fiber layer, macular retinal nerve fiber layer, and ganglion cell layer-inner plexiform layer thickness and analyze their correlations in adult patients with neurofibromatosis Type 1 (NF1) and disease-free controls. METHODS This cross-sectional study was performed at the Azienda Policlinico Umberto I,(More)
Sturge-Weber syndrome has been included in the group of phakomatoses that is characterized by hamartomas involving the brain, skin, and eyes. The characteristic facial port-wine stain, involving the first branch of the trigeminal nerve and the embryonic vasculature distribution in this area, leads to several ocular complications of the anterior segment and(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE Frontalis suspension is the best surgical procedure for severe ptosis with poor or absent levator muscle function. In addition to autologous fascia lata, a variety of materials are available for suspension. The authors describe the use of Mersilene mesh slings developed to overcome the problems of failure, slippage, and extrusion(More)
PURPOSE Management of choroidal metastases is commonly with systemic chemotherapy; however, if tumours are refractory to treatment and vision is endangered, local therapy modalities are feasible. A novel option is the use of intravitreal bevacizumab. This report presents three cases of choroidal metastatic tumours secondary to lung and breast cancer treated(More)
