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 diagnostic ability of macular parameters and peripapillary retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) parameters for early glaucoma using spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT). MATERIALS AND METHODS One eye from 32 early glaucoma patients (including preperimetric glaucoma) and 32 normal participants underwent macular scans(More)
PURPOSE This study aimed to investigate the effects of preoperative intravitreal bevacizumab (IVB) on outcomes in trabeculectomy for neovascular glaucoma (NVG). METHODS Charts for 52 NVG eyes of 52 consecutive patients who received primary trabeculectomy with mitomycin C (MMC) were reviewed. Postoperative follow-up periods for all patients were > or = 4(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)
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 post-surgical VF. Twenty-three eyes of 12 patients with chiasmal compression and 33 control eyes were studied. All patients underwent(More)
PURPOSE To determine whether a scanning laser ophthalmoscope (SLO) is useful for in vivo imaging and counting of rat retinal ganglion cells (RGCs). METHODS RGCs of Brown Norway rats were retrogradely labeled bilaterally with the fluorescent dye 4-(4-(dihexadecylamino)styryl)-N-methylpyridinium iodine (DiA). The unilateral optic nerve was crushed(More)
PURPOSE To investigate which measurements of inner macular thickness are the most useful for evaluating the focal relationship with visual sensitivity within the central 10° in glaucoma and which layers require correction for retinal ganglion cell (RGC) displacement. METHODS Sixty eyes of 60 subjects with glaucoma were included. Sensitivity of each test(More)
To investigate the relationship between optic disc ovality and horizontal disc tilt. 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. Stereophotographically obvious(More)
PURPOSE We investigated the difference in clinical characteristics between cases with enlarged retinal nerve fiber layer defects (RNFLD) and stable RNFLDs in normal-tension glaucoma (NTG). PATIENTS AND METHODS We retrospectively reviewed NTG patients that were diagnosed and followed up for at least 3 years at 1-month to 2-month intervals by the same(More)
