PURPOSE To study the morphological patterns of pterygia and pingueculae using high-resolution anterior segment spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT). METHODS Prospective cross-sectional study of 25 eyes presented with pterygia and pingueculae was conducted, and the eyes were examined by anterior segment SD-OCT. RESULTS We examined 25(More)
Purpose. To evaluate efficacy and safety of primary vitrectorhexis for posterior capsulotomy in highly myopic patients undergoing refractive lens exchange. Methods. The study is a prospective nonrandomized interventional study. The study comprised 60 eyes of 60 myopic patients. All patients underwent refractive lens exchange (RLE) and foldable IOL(More)
AIM To study plasma levels of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), endothelin-1(ET-1) and nitric oxide (NO) in patients with proliferative diabetic retinopathy (PDR) before and after pan-retinal photocoagulation (PRP). METHODS Forty patients (23 females and 17 males, mean age 48.5±12.2 years) with PDR without previous PRP therapy were studied. Blood(More)
PURPOSE To study the effect of a single intracameral injection of triamcinolone acetonide at the end of pediatric traumatic cataract surgery on postoperative inflammation. METHODS This prospective interventional study comprised 40 eyes of children with unilateral traumatic cataract. Patients were classified into 2 groups: the study group, in which(More)
The aim of the present study was to determine the role of the visual evoked potentials and SPIR-FLAIR (Selective partial inversion recovery-fluid attenuation inversion recovery) MRI technique in differentiating between non arteritic ischemic optic neuropathy (NAION) from acute isolated optic neuritis (ON). Thirty patients with acute optic neuropathy and 20(More)
PURPOSE To assess the incidence of epithelial ingrowth after laser in situ keratomileusis and its correlation with myopic or hyperopic treatment. METHODS This retrospective study analyzed 1000 consecutive LASIK procedures performed by 3 surgeons using identical surgical technique with a Hansatome microkeratome. Eyes that developed epithelial ingrowth were(More)
Simultaneous Clear Lens Extraction and Silicon Oil Removal in Vitrectomized Myopic Eyes Myopic eyes have a higher risk of retinal detachment, whether pseudophakic or phakic.1 Because of the refractive index of silicon oil, patients with high myopia and retinal detachment experience improvement in their refraction after vitrectomy and silicone oil injection.(More)
