BACKGROUND Mini-mental state exam (MMSE) was used several times but no study has examined cognition on the Montreal Cognitive Assessment (MoCA) in diabetes and diabetic retinopathy (DR). In this study, we compared MMSE with MoCA in patients with DR and searched for an association between the severity of DR and cognitive impairment (CI). METHODS This(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate plasma adropin levels in patients with pseudoexfoliation (PEX). This retrospective case–control study included 35 patients with PEX and 35 individuals without PEX who served as controls. Plasma adropin levels with triglycerides, total cholesterol, low-density lipoprotein (LDL), high-density lipoprotein (HDL), and(More)
PURPOSE To investigate the effect of short-term brinzolamide application on human central corneal thickness (CCT). METHODS Seventeen eyes of 16 patients who underwent neodymium:YAG laser posterior capsulotomy were included in the study group. Twenty-two subjects served as controls. Brinzolamide twice daily and fluorometholone four times daily were(More)

PURPOSE To determine the effect of intravitreal bevacizumab on retrobulbar blood flow of patients with diabetic macular edema. METHODS Peak systolic velocity, end-diastolic velocity, resistance, and pulsatility indices of central retinal artery (CRA), nasal posterior ciliary artery (NPCA), temporal posterior ciliary artery (TPCA), and ophthalmic artery(More)
A 43-year-old woman presented with a visual acuity of 1/10 in the right eye and 3/10 in the left eye.

Visual field testing showed no significant defect in both eyes.(More)
AIM To evaluate the safety of hydroimplantation in cataract surgery in patients with pseudoexfoliation syndrome. METHODS This prospective randomized study comprised 100 eyes of 100 consecutive patients who underwent cataract surgery and implantation of foldable intraocular lens (IOL). Each eye was assigned to group 1 or group 2. Hydroimplantation without(More)
OBJECTIVE The exact pathogenic mechanism underlying the thrombotic tendency in retinal vein occlusion (RVO) is still not fully established. We investigated relationship between platelet indices including mean platelet volume (MPV) and platelet count in RVO patients compared to control group. PATIENTS AND METHODS Forty six patients (19 female, 27 male)(More)
The aim of the current study was to evaluate the effect of apocynin (APO) on the development of proliferative vitreoretinopathy (PVR). New Zealand-type male rabbits were randomly grouped into three as follows: (1) Sham group rabbits which were applied intraperitoneal (i.p.) vehicle without PVR; (2) PVR group rabbits where PVR was created and an i.p. vehicle(More)
