Classification of Diabetic Retinopathy
TLDR
This chapter reviews the Early Treatment of Diabetic Retinopathy Study classification as well as the International Clinical Diabeticretinopathy Disease Severity Scale for diabetic retinopathy and diabetic macular edema. Expand
Quadratic filter for the enhancement of edges in retinal images for the efficient detection and localization of diabetic retinopathy
TLDR
The design and implementation of efficient edge detection quadratic filters for better localization of microaneurysms, caused by diabetic retinopathy, in fundus retinal images are described. Expand

Observational study of subclinical diabetic macular edema
TLDR
It is suggested that between approximately one-quarter and one-half of eyes with subclinical DME will progress to more definite thickening or be judged to need treatment for DME within 2 years after its identification. Expand
REDUCING ORAL FLORA CONTAMINATION OF INTRAVITREAL INJECTIONS WITH FACE MASK OR SILENCE
TLDR
The use of a face mask and avoidance of talking each significantly decreased the dispersion of bacteria, and plates pretreated with povidone–iodine demonstrated the least bacterial growth. Expand
Bleb-associated infections after intravitreal injection.
TLDR
The potentially severe results of bleb-associated endophthalmitis warrant monitoring in patients with previous trabeculectomy who undergo intravitreal injection therapies. Expand
EFFECT OF PROPHYLACTIC TOPICAL BRIMONIDINE (0.15%) ADMINISTRATION ON THE DEVELOPMENT OF SUBCONJUNCTIVAL HEMORRHAGE AFTER INTRAVITREAL INJECTION
TLDR
The administration of 0.15% brimonidine before an intravitreal injection decreased the incidence, severity, and size of subconjunctival hemorrhage. Expand
Endophthalmitis after intravitreal injections: should the use of face masks be the standard of care?
TLDR
A simulation of injection conditions to demonstrate the potential contamination of the field during intravitreal injections in the outpatient clinic is described. Expand
Intravitreal Injection Technique
TLDR
Variations in injection technique are discussed, and the authors combine their clinical and research experience with a review of the literature to propose a recommended intravitreal injection protocol. Expand
Prophylaxis for endophthalmitis following intravitreal injection: antisepsis and antibiotics.
TLDR
Wearing surgical masks or minimizing talking while preparing and administering intravitreal injections and the use of antisepsis and antibiotics are recommended. Expand
Rationale for the diabetic retinopathy clinical research network treatment protocol for center-involved diabetic macular edema.
TLDR
Results confirmed that intravitreal ranibizumab with prompt or deferred laser provides superior visual acuity outcomes compared with prompt laser alone through at least 2 years, and duplication of this algorithm may not be practical for clinical practice. Expand
CHARACTERIZATION OF STERILE INTRAOCULAR INFLAMMATORY RESPONSES AFTER INTRAVITREAL BEVACIZUMAB INJECTION
TLDR
In most cases of sterile intraocular inflammation after IVB, visual acuity returned to baseline, and intraocularinflammation rarely recurred with repeat IVB or intravitreal ranibizumab. Expand
