Although acute optic neuropathy has been rarely reported in patients with Behçet's disease, a detailed description of its clinical course is lacking. We report in detail the course of acute optic neuropathy in two patients with Behçet's disease. Our experience suggests that it can be bilateral, can affect both eyes simultaneously, and can be recurrent. The(More)
AIMS To assess the diagnostic accuracy of optical coherence tomography (OCT), with/without colour fundus photographs, in predicting fundus fluorescein angiography (FFA) findings in patients suspected of having choroidal neovascularisation (CNV). METHODS A consecutive series of patients suspected of having CNV underwent OCT and stereo FFA images, which(More)
AIMS To assess the correlation between optical coherence tomography (OCT) and leakage on fundus fluorescein angiography (FFA) following photodynamic therapy (PDT) with verteporfin for choroidal neovascularisation (CNV). METHODS Retrospective comparative observational case series of patients who were treated with PDT for CNV from one centre. All patients(More)
The exact incidence of submacular haemorrhage (SMH) in patients with neovascular age-related macular degeneration (nAMD) is unknown, and risk factors for its occurrence ill defined. It is known, however, to be a relatively common problem and important because the visual prognosis of these patients is poor. Unfortunately, patients with significant SMH were(More)
PURPOSE To investigate how quickly Goldmann applanation tonometers used in clinical practice develop calibration errors, and to determine the frequency of checks required to detect these errors. MATERIALS AND METHODS Prospective check of the calibration error of all Haag-Streit Goldmann applanation tonometers in the department at month zero, month one,(More)
PURPOSE To assess the short-term effects of argon laser on retinal thickening as demonstrated by optical coherence tomography (OCT). METHODS A prospectively collected consecutive series of patients undergoing routine focal argon laser treatment for sight-threatening diabetic maculopathy had bilateral OCT performed before laser treatment and 1 hour, 24(More)
PURPOSE To determine the association of genetic variants of the VEGFA gene with outcome of anti-vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) treatment in neovascular age-related macular degeneration (AMD). DESIGN A prospective cohort study. PARTICIPANTS We included 201 consecutive patients receiving anti-VEGF injections for neovascular AMD. METHODS(More)
We present a case involving a serious systemic cause of visual symptoms after successful bilateral laser in situ keratomileusis. There were no signs in the anterior segment to explain the visual symptoms. Ancillary tests and investigations confirmed a pituitary tumor, which was removed. We recommend comprehensive ophthalmological examination and full(More)
