PURPOSE This study sought to determine the influence of relaxing retinotomy (RR) incisions upon surgical outcomes in the repair of recurrent retinal detachment (RD) attributable to proliferative vitreoretinopathy (PVR). DESIGN Retrospective, consecutive, nonrandomized, single-center series. METHODS Eighty-one eyes with recurrent RD attributable to PVR(More)
PURPOSE To determine the effect of menstrual cycle phases on the visual field analysis of healthy females. MATERIAL AND METHODS One randomly selected eye each of 59 healthy normally menstruating women, and of 54 men with no systemic and ocular problems, other than refractive error, were included in the study. Subjects underwent complete ocular(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE To report the perioperative complications and clinical outcomes of 50 deep anterior lamellar keratoplasty (DALK) cases. PATIENTS AND METHODS Fifty eyes of 50 patients with pathologies involving the corneal stroma and sparing the Descemet's membrane and endothelium were included consecutively in this prospective, noncomparative(More)
PURPOSE To assess cataract progression after intravitreal triamcinolone injection. DESIGN Retrospective, interventional, case-control study. METHODS Forty-two phakic eyes of 37 patients were injected one, two, or three times with intravitreal triamcinolone for various indications. Noninjected phakic fellow eyes served as the control. The mean follow-up(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the effect of the birth weight and the postconceptional age on the tear production of preterm and term newborn infants and to evaluate the changes in tear production during the first two months of life. SUBJECTS--METHODS: Both eyes of medically stable term and preterm infants were included in the study. Based on postconceptional age and(More)
BACKGROUND The accumulation of advanced glycation end products (AGEs) has been implicated in the pathogenesis of diabetic keratopathy. The present study was aimed to understand if aminoguanidine (AG), an AGE inhibitor, was protective against the development of corneal complications in a diabetic rat model. METHODS Wistar rats were divided into three(More)
AIM To investigate which visual field testing strategy yields more reliable and tolerable field analysis in a normal pediatric population. MATERIAL AND METHODS 68 healthy children aged 6-13 years with no ocular or systemic diseases were included in the study. One randomly selected eye of each child underwent standard achromatic visual field analysis using(More)
PURPOSE This study was performed to examine the effect of hypercholesterolemia on inducible nitric oxide synthase (NOS-2) expression and oxidative tissue injury in an experimental rat model of elevated IOP. METHODS Wistar rats were maintained on either regular chow or a high-cholesterol diet for 24 weeks. Intraocular pressure (IOP) was elevated in(More)
BACKGROUND We investigated the effect of pregnancy on the long-term fluctuation of retinal sensitivity in healthy women. METHODS Candidates for the study were healthy women who were likely to become pregnant. A complete ocular examination of both eyes was performed in 41 women, and 1 eye each was chosen at random for the study. This initial examination(More)
