PURPOSE To report a case series of patients with novel forkhead box CI (FOXC1) mutations in a Korean family with Axenfeld-Rieger syndrome (ARS). METHODS Four members of the same family underwent complete ophthalmologic and systemic examinations and genetic analysis. Genomic DNA was isolated from peripheral blood leukocytes, and all coding exons with(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate prospectively whether anti-glaucomatic drugs administered prior to intravitreal anti-vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) injection bevacizumab (Avastin,® Roche) or ranibizumab (Lucentis,® Novartis) prevents intraocular hypertension after the injection. SUBJECTS AND METHODS In total, 166 patients (175 eyes) scheduled for(More)
We report the successful removal of a retrobulbar foreign body using a transcranial approach in a 63-year-old patient with a penetrating injury to the left eye. Initial ocular examination revealed a corneoscleral laceration, hyphema, a traumatic cataract, and vitreous hemorrhage. Visual acuity consisted only of the perception of hand motion. Computed(More)
The present study characterizes the effects of resveratrol (Res) on vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) secretion in retinal pigment epithelial (RPE) cells. ARPE-19 cells were treated with CoCl2, a hypoxia mimetic agent. CoCl2 treatment increased protein levels of hypoxia inducible factor-1α (HIF-1α) and CXC-chemokine receptor 4 (CXCR4), and secretion(More)
PURPOSE To describe diurnal variation in choroidal thickness (CT) and retinal thickness (RT) of the nine Early Treatment of Diabetic Retinopathy Study (ETDRS) macular subfields determined using swept-source optical coherence tomography. METHODS A prospective study was conducted on 24 healthy Korean volunteers who underwent two sequential measurements of a(More)
Purpose: To report a case of invasive aspergillosis presenting as acute angle closure glaucoma. Case: A 72-year-old male patient visited our clinic with decreased visual acuity and ocular pain on the right eye lasting for 3 d. His intraocular pressure was 42 mmHg in the right eye and 18 mmHg in the left eye. And, there was about 2 mm of exophthalmos, slight(More)
PURPOSE To investigate the inhibitory effect of 0.02% mitomycin C on eyelash regrowth when injected to the eyelash hair follicle immediately after radiofrequency ablation. METHODS We prospectively included 21 trichiasis patients from June 2011 to October 2012. Twenty eyes of 14 patients were treated with 0.02% mitomycin C to the hair follicle immediately(More)
PURPOSE Ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) injury induces apoptosis in retinal ganglion cells (RGCs). Resveratrol (Res) is a potent natural antioxidant with beneficial effects in many ocular diseases, such as age-related macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, and glaucoma. Because caspase-3 expression is highly correlated with activation of the apoptotic(More)
