BACKGROUND To measure the anterior and posterior ocular biometric characteristics concurrently and to determine the relationship between the iris and choroid in healthy Chinese subjects. METHODS A total of 148 subjects (270 eyes) were enrolled in this cross-section study. The anterior and posterior ocular biometric characteristics were measured(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to evaluate changes in choroidal thickness (CT) in advanced or late-stage primary angle closure glaucoma (PACG) patients who had undergone trabeculectomy. METHODS This study included 23 eyes with PACG that required trabeculectomy. Enhanced depth imaging optical coherence tomography was used to measure CT before and 7(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the application of the Ologen implant compared to mitomycin C (MMC) on the outcome of trabeculectomy and to examine the balance of risks and benefits. METHODS A systematic literature search (Pubmed, Embase, the Cochrane Library, and the Chinese Biomedicine Database) was performed. Randomized controlled trials comparing the Ologen(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess whether the incidence of systemic adverse events differs between those who used bevacizumab and those who used ranibizumab in the treatment of age-related macular degeneration (AMD). METHODS A systematic literature search was conducted to identify randomised controlled trials (RCTs) comparing the use of intravitreal bevacizumab with(More)
BACKGROUND Recent voxel-based morphometry (VBM) studies have found gray matter (GM) abnormalities in primary focal dystonia (PFD) and yielded inconsistent results. AIM Our aim is to investigate consistent GM changes in PFD and to identify whether different subtypes of PFD share a common pathophysiological basis revealed by structural abnormalities. (More)
BACKGROUND To evaluate the peripapillary choroidal thickness of a healthy Chinese population, and to determine its influencing factors. METHODS A total of 76 healthy volunteers (76 eyes) without ophthalmic or systemic symptoms were enrolled. Choroidal scans (360-degree 3.4 mm diameter peripapillary circle scans) were obtained for all eyes using enhanced(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate choroidal thickness (CT) in the subtypes of angle-closure (AC) disease compared with CT in a healthy control. METHODS A total of 297 subjects (eyes) were enrolled in the study: 87 were nonglaucoma controls and 210 were AC subtype eyes (primary AC suspect [PACS], 73 eyes; acute primary AC [APAC], 46 eyes; primary AC [PAC], 35 eyes; and(More)
PURPOSE We evaluated choroidal thickness in the fellow eyes of patients with acute primary angle-closure (APAC) and compared findings to those of normal controls. METHODS The study group comprised 44 fellow eyes defined as primary angle-closure suspect (PACS) of 44 subjects who had experienced APAC and 43 eyes of 43 healthy volunteers. Using enhanced(More)
PURPOSE We compared the choroidal thickness of the eyes of patients with acute primary angle-closure (APAC) with fellow eyes in the same patients. METHODS The analysis included 21 participants with unilateral APAC affected eyes and 21 fellow eyes with a diagnosis of primary angle-closure suspect (PACS). Enhanced depth imaging-optical coherence tomography(More)
