AIM The aim of this ten-year study (from the end of 1998 to the end of 2008) was to assess the prevalence of congenital dyschromatopsia in unselected healthy male population aged 15-45 from two Croatian regions, i.e. inland and Mediterranean parts of Croatia. Results collected in these two regions were compared and respective conclusions drawn. The results(More)
The aim of this study is to investigate possible connection between omega-6/omega-3 fatty acid ratio and development and progression of Age-Related Macular Degeneration (ARMD). We examined 125 patients diagnosed with ARMD and divided into 5 groups of 25 patients according to CARMS (Clinical Age-Related Maculopathy Staging System). Control group consists of(More)
Central corneal thickness is very important measurement in glaucoma treatment because it influences the eye pressure measurements. A thinner cornea gives us artifactually lower intraocular pressure and a thicker cornea gives higher intraocular pressure reading, so it has to be corrected in both cases. The aim of this study is to compare central corneal(More)
The endothelial cells are one of the most important structures in a donor cornea. Morphology and concentration of endothelial cells must be carefully evaluated with a specular microscope before transplantation. The aim of this study is to evaluate the status of corneal endothelium in glaucoma patients. Prospective study included 50 patients suffering from(More)
The aim of this study is to report short-term effect of the treatment of "wet" ARMD (age-related macular degeneration) with intravitreal bevacizumab (Avastin). Prospective study included 36 patients (36 eyes) with "wet' form of ARMD. All patients were over 60 year old (22 female, 14 male). Changes of macula included minimally classic CNV (choroidal(More)
The aim of this study is to evaluate pseudoexfoliative glaucoma (PEX) in Primorsko-Goranska County, Croatia, and its characteristics comparing to primary open angle glaucoma (POAG). In the study a hundred patients with open angle glaucoma were examined, twenty six of them had a pseudoexfoliative glaucoma diagnosed. We were following intraocular pressure(More)
Measurements of central cornea thickness (CCT) have a very important value in glaucoma patients; if the central cornea is thinner than it suggests, then the intraocular pressure is falsely low. This study compares the central cornea thickness between patients with pseudoexfoliative glaucoma, open angle glaucoma, angle closure glaucoma and control group.(More)
During 3-year study of 73 patients with dental inflammation, sinusitis, otitis and 5 cases with granuloma, in 9 cases we observed the development of central retinitis. All patients were medicated with the same antibiotics and parabulbar depo of Prednisolonacetate. To 50% of these patients, we suggested eye protection with Yellow Medical filters during two(More)
The aim of this study is to show what part of our County has the most population with age-related macular degeneration (ARMD) and how some types frequently appear in same parts. The County includes 3 different geographic areas: Gorski Kotar, Coast and Islands. ARMD is the leading cause of visual impairment and blindness in developed countries. There are two(More)
This study attempts to answer the question if any level of head and neck circulation takes a part in development of Age-Related Macular Degeneration (ARMD) and hearing and equilibrium impairments. Condition of large blood vessels was examined by Color-Doppler ultrasound, and carotid and ophthalmic arteries were included. The microcirculatory changes were(More)
