OBJECTIVE To demonstrate the histopathologic changes in the porcine eye without retinal vein occlusion after radial optic neurotomy (RON).

One radial stab incision at the edge of the nasal optic nerve head was made using a 20-gauge microvitreoretinal blade (Visitec) while the intraocular pressure was elevated. Surgery was concluded when hemostasis was achieved. Weekly ophthalmoscopic examinations were performed. Group 1… CONTINUE READING
