Aims/Purpose To identify the characteristic ocular findings in Asian children with Down syndrome.Methods A total of 123 Korean children with Down’s syndrome between 6 months and 14 years of age were… Expand
Intravenously administered gold nanoparticles pass through the blood-retinal barrier depending on the particle size, and induce no retinal toxicity.
The retina maintains homeostasis through the blood-retinal barrier (BRB). Although it is ideal to deliver the drug to the retina via systemic administration, it is still challenging due to the BRB… Expand

Long term refractive outcome in eyes of preterm infants with and without retinopathy of prematurity: comparison of keratometric value, axial length, anterior chamber depth, and lens thickness
BACKGROUND/AIMS A longitudinal study of premature infants was conducted to examine changes in refractive status and their relation with age and factors influencing the occurrence and degree of… Expand
Correlation of visual acuity with foveal hypoplasia grading by optical coherence tomography in albinism.
PURPOSE To develop a new foveal hypoplasia grading system using optical coherence tomography (OCT) and to determine the correlations of visual acuity to the iris transillumination, macular… Expand
