We analyzed data obtained prospectively on 48 consecutive patients treated with intravitreal silicone oil. Forty percent were diabetic. Follow-up ranged from three to eight months.

There was no significant difference in mean pressure rise between diabetic and non-diabetic eyes. The increase in… CONTINUE READING
