BACKGROUND/AIMS Choroidal thickness measurements are reported to differ between swept source optical coherence tomography (SS-OCT) and spectral domain OCT (SD-OCT). This study aimed to assess the comparability of choroidal thickness measurements using SS-OCT and SD-OCT devices among patients with retinal diseases and normal participants. METHODS In a(More)
PURPOSE To propose a novel classification system for polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy (PCV), and compare the clinical outcomes among PCV subtypes. METHODS Consecutive treatment-naive patients with symptomatic PCV were managed over 5 years. PCV subtypes were classified based on indocyanine green angiography (ICGA) and fluorescein angiography (FA)(More)
PURPOSE To describe the imaging standards, grading protocol and baseline characteristics of polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy (PCV) from the EVEREST study. METHODS In a prospective, multicentre study, confocal scanning laser ophthalmoscope indocyanine green angiography (ICGA) was performed using a standardised imaging protocol. All images were graded(More)
To describe screening failures in the EVEREST study by examining the imaging characteristics that enabled differentiation of polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy (PCV) from cases that were subsequently diagnosed not to be PCV. Post-hoc analysis of 34 patients with PCV reported as screening failures from EVEREST study. Standardised confocal scanning laser(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE To compare retinal thicknesses measured using swept-source optical coherence tomography (SS-OCT) and spectral-domain (SD) OCT devices. PATIENTS AND METHODS In a cohort study of 76 healthy eyes and 21 eyes with high myopia, mean retinal thicknesses in ETDRS subfields were compared between OCT scans obtained from the Topcon DRI(More)
We read with interest the paper by Bansal et al. [1] which reported that Ozurdex implant (Allergan Inc, Irvine, California) has a role in the management of recalcitrant diabetic macular edema (DME). In particular, there was a significant improvement in mean best corrected visual acuity (BCVA) and decrease in the mean central macular thickness (CMT) in these(More)
