PURPOSE To evaluate the relationship between macular ganglion cell complex (GCC) parameters and visual field (VF) parameters in chiasmal compression and the potential for GCC parameters in order to predict the short-term postsurgical VF. METHODS Twenty-three eyes of 12 patients with chiasmal compression and 33 control eyes were studied. All patients(More)
PURPOSE To report the morphologic changes of the subfoveal choroidal thickness using spectral-domain optical coherence tomography following segmental scleral buckling. DESIGN Retrospective, observational case series. METHODS The study included 21 eyes of 20 patients who underwent segmental scleral buckling for the treatment of rhegmatogenous retinal(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the relationship between polymorphisms of the prostaglandin F(2alpha) receptor (FP receptor) gene and the effectiveness of topical latanoprost treatment in normal volunteers. DESIGN Prospective nonrandomized trial. PARTICIPANTS One hundred normal volunteers were recruited into the study. METHODS Baseline intraocular pressures(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate findings of reverse pupillary block after scleral-fixated sutured posterior chamber intraocular lens (PC IOL) implantation using anterior segment optical coherence tomography (AS-OCT) and report a possible association with postoperative complications. SETTING Department of Ophthalmology, Kanazawa University Graduate School of Medical(More)
PURPOSE To investigate the relationship between optic disc ovality and horizontal disc tilt. METHODS The ovality index (the ratio of minimum to maximum disc diameter), horizontal and vertical optic disc tilt, and optic disc torsion were measured on the Heidelberg Retina Tomograph 3 printout in 381 right eyes of 381 normal young subjects.(More)
Sagittal magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans of the eye and orbit were made of 30 eyes in 15 cases of dysthyroid ophthalmopathy (DO). On the basis of these scans, we sought to elucidate relationships between the morphological condition of the levator palpebrae muscle, fatty tissue in the upper eyelid and the superior, inferior recti muscles and the(More)
PURPOSE To compare the drug efficacy of four prostaglandin analogues (PGAs) by bilateral treatment in normal subjects. METHODS Three consecutive studies comparing latanoprost to three other PGAs (travoprost, tafluprost and bimatoprost) were performed in 24 healthy subjects. Each study was separated by a washout period of over 6 weeks. In each study, two(More)
PURPOSE To examine the effects of multiple intraocular pressure (IOP) measurements on the correlation of response to glaucoma medication between fellow eyes. METHODS Latanoprost was applied to the first eye and then to both eyes of 16 patients with either primary open-angle glaucoma or ocular hypertension. IOP measurements were performed twice on(More)
Exfoliation syndrome (XFS) is the most common recognizable cause of open-angle glaucoma worldwide. To better understand the etiology of XFS, we conducted a genome-wide association study (GWAS) of 1,484 cases and 1,188 controls from Japan and followed up the most significant findings in a further 6,901 cases and 20,727 controls from 17 countries across 6(More)
PURPOSE To compare surgically induced astigmatism among 3 sizes of temporal corneal incisions in cataract surgery. PATIENTS AND METHODS A retrospective review was carried out of case records of 48 patients (64 eyes) who underwent cataract surgery. The length of the corneal incision was 1.6 mm in five eyes, 2.2 mm in 33 eyes, and 3.0 mm in 26 eyes.(More)
