CASE An 85-year-old female patient was admitted to the Department of Ophthalmology of the Dicle University School of Medicine with the complaint of a wound in her right eye for over(More)
PURPOSE To determine the distribution of central corneal thickness (CCT) and intraocular pressure (IOP) in a population of Turkish school children and to evaluate the relationships between these values and both age and gender. METHODS A total of 30,320 eyes from 15,160 healthy school children aged 5-18 years were examined. CCT and IOP were measured using(More)
To evaluate the efficacy of topical cyclosporin A 0.05% in managing the symptoms of severe vernal keratoconjunctivitis (VKC). Fifty-four children with severe VKC were included in this study. All 54 patients were treated with topical cyclosporin A (CsA) 0.05% for 3 months. Ocular signs and symptoms were scored in all patients at entry and after 3 months.(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the clinical efficacy of intravitreal bevacizumab (IVB) combined with panretinal photocoagulation in patients with open angle neovascular glaucoma (NVG). METHODS Nine patients (9 eyes) with NVG participated in this study. Patients received IVB (1.25 mg) as the initial treatment for NVG and were followed up for at least 4 months. IVB(More)

METHODS The study comprised 37 AMD patients who had undergone intravitreal 0.5 mg ranibizumab injection. The ophthalmic artery,(More)
BACKGROUND Cataract surgery is associated with the development of late-onset age-related macular degeneration (AMD). The pathogenic mechanism is still not fully established. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the possible changes in central macula thickness (CMT) and subfoveal choroid thickness (SCT) after uneventful cataract surgery. MATERIAL AND(More)
