PURPOSE To investigate the longitudinal changes in retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thickness after pars plana vitrectomy for rhegmatogenous retinal detachment. METHODS This prospective study examined 33 vitrectomy patients who were diagnosed with rhegmatogenous retinal detachment. Optical coherence tomography was conducted 6, 12, and 24 months after(More)
A 50-year-old man had undergone lumbar vertebral surgery and was confined to bed in the supine position for three months. When he sat up from the prolonged supine position, he showed clinical signs of orthostatic hypotension and reported decreased vision in both eyes. He also had underlying anemia. Ophthalmologic findings suggested bilateral anterior(More)
Patients with congenital ocular motor apraxia (OMA) typically show head thrusts while attempting to shift gaze. In congenital OMA, this compensatory head motion mostly occurs in the horizontal plane. Two patients with acquired palsy of voluntary vertical gaze and continuous upward gaze deviation, one from aortic surgery and the other from multiple(More)
Isolated bilateral absence of the inferior rectus muscle is a rare congenital anomaly. The usual presentation of this disorder involves apparent ocular deviations and abnormal head posture from an early age. A 45-year-old woman presented with a bilateral ptosis and lower scleral show. She had a limitation of infraduction in both eyes but was orthophoric in(More)
Neuromyelitis optica spectrum disorders (NMOSD) can cause various ocular motor disorders in addition to optic neuritis. Ocular motor findings associated with NMOSD include spontaneous vertical and gaze-evoked nystagmus, wall-eyed bilateral internuclear ophthalmoplegia, and trochlear nerve palsy. The association between dorsal midbrain syndrome and(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the efficacy of a sleeve technique during endoscopic dacryocystorhinostomy (DCR) in primary nasolacrimal duct obstruction (NLDO) patients with a high lacrimal sac. MATERIALS AND METHODS The medical records of 45 patients (49 cases) undergoing endoscopic DCR for primary NLDO with a high lacrimal sac were retrospectively reviewed. In 19(More)
The authors report a caruncular abscess caused by actinomycosis. A 47-year-old woman was admitted with persistent purulent discharge from the caruncle of the left eye for a duration of six months. Excisional drainage was performed, and 'sulfur granules' were observed, consistent with actinomyces infection. Intraoperative lacrimal probing and irrigation were(More)
