We compared (1) the differences in the retinal nerve fiber layer between 26 patients with Alzheimer's disease and 30 age- and race-matched normal controls with use of blue-light high-resolution photography, (2) the differences in disc pallor between 30 patients with Alzheimer's disease and 32 controls with use of a boundary-tracking program and fundus(More)
Results of previous studies have strongly indicated that the prevalence of elevated intraocular pressure is greater in blacks than in whites and that blacks are more susceptible than whites to glaucomatous damage at any given level of pressure. It has also been suggested that a larger disc area might predispose an eye to glaucomatous damage. We investigated(More)
BACKGROUND Malignant glaucoma (ciliary block glaucoma; aqueous misdirection glaucoma) is an incompletely understood, rare and serious complication of intraocular surgery. METHODS A woman with pseudophakic malignant glaucoma underwent successful neodymium: YAG (Nd:YAG) laser photodisruption of the anterior hyaloid face with resolution of the glaucoma.(More)
BACKGROUND We determined the effects of NIDDM on haemodynamic parameters describing arterial wall elasticity and cardiac hypertrophy in rats administered streptozotocin (STZ) and nicotinamide (NA), using the aortic impedance analysis. METHODS Male Wistar rats at 2 months were administered intraperitoneally 180 mg kg(-1) of NA, 30 min before an intravenous(More)
Optic disc parameters and axial lengths were measured in 81 visually normal young and elderly white adults (young [n = 41]: 27.2 +/- 5.7 years versus elderly [n = 40]: 68.8 +/- 8.4 years) using Rodenstock Optic Disc Analyzer and A-scan sonography. Axial lengths correlated positively with optic disc parameters (Spearman correlation analysis: rim area: P =(More)
