PURPOSE The aim of this study was to visualize the subarachnoid portion of the nervus abducens by magnetic resonance imaging and to analyze whether aplasia of the nervus abducens is an etiologic factor in Duane's retraction syndrome. METHODS We performed thin-sectioned magnetic resonance imaging across the brainstem level in 8 cases (11 eyes) that were(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the performance of the SoftPerm contact lens in patients with irregular astigmatism caused by keratoconus. METHODS Twenty-four eyes of 14 patients with keratoconus who had intolerance to rigid gas-permeable contact lenses and were fitted with SoftPerm lenses at Kartal Training and Research Hospital between August 1998 and January 2002(More)
PURPOSE To compare different ultrasound modes used in phacoemulsification surgery in terms of their efficacy and outcomes during and after surgery. METHODS A total of 86 patients with cataract diagnosis who underwent phacoemulsification surgery in Fatih Sultan Mehmet Education and Research Hospital Eye Diseases Clinic between November 2006 and February(More)
PURPOSE We evaluated the clinical outcome and fitting characteristics with Rose K contact lenses in patients with irregular astigmatism due to keratoconus. METHODS About 19 patients with keratoconus were fitted with Rose K lens in the Cornea Department at the Fatih Sultan Mehmet Training and Research Hospital between May 2005 and April 2006. Patients were(More)
PURPOSE To determine the astigmatism outcomes after cataract surgery performed using superonasal and superotemporal clear corneal incisions. SETTING Department of Ophthalmology, Kartal Training and Research Hospital, Istanbul, Turkey. METHODS This prospective study includes consecutive 45 eyes of 34 patients having phacoemulsification with implantation(More)
PURPOSE To compare the effects of dorzolamide-timolol combination and brimonidine on intraocular pressure (IOP) after phacoemulsification surgery. METHODS This prospective, randomized study included 69 eyes of 43 patients undergoing phacoemulsification and foldable intraocular lens implantation. Twenty-one patients were women and 22 were men. The mean(More)
BACKGROUND Surgical correction of bilateral cicatricial upper and lower eyelid ectropion in an ichthyosis patient remains a challenge in clinical practice. MAIN OBSERVATIONS A 24-year-old female patient presented to our clinic with bilateral upper and lower eyelid ectropion. Her skin over her entire body and face was dry and scaly. The diagnosis was(More)
PURPOSE To investigate the effectiveness of silicone hydrogel soft contact lenses for therapeutic applications. METHODS The study included 37 patients who had bullous keratopathy (n=12), recurrent corneal erosion (n=9), filamentous keratitis (n=3), corneal melting after corneal surgery (n=4), lamellar lacerations (n=4), or chemical trauma (n=5) and were(More)
PURPOSE The aim was to investigate the effect of Nd:YAG capsulotomy on refraction, intraocular pressure and anterior chamber depth changes and complications of Nd:YAG laser treatment for posterior capsular opacification in pseudophakic eyes. METHODS Our study includes 26 eyes (23 patients) with posterior capsular opacification after uncomplicated(More)
Keratoconus is the most common corneal distrophy. It's a noninflammatory progressive thinning process that leads to conical ectasia of the cornea, causing high myopia and astigmatism. Many treatment choices include spectacle correction and contact lens wear, collagen cross linking, intracorneal ring segments implantation and finally keratoplasty. Contact(More)
