PURPOSE: To evaluate macular vascular flow abnormalities identified by optical coherence tomography angiography (OCT-A) in patients with various sickle cell genotypes. DESIGN: Prospective, observational case series. METHODS: This is a single institution case series of adult patients with various sickle cell genotypes. All patients underwent macular OCT-A (Avanti RTVue XR, Optovue Inc, Fremont, CA). Images were analyzed qualitatively for areas of flow loss and quantitatively for measures of foveal avascular area, parafoveal flow, and vascular density...

PURPOSE: To investigate the regeneration of the cone outer segments in eyes after surgery for fovea-off rhegmatogenous retinal detachment with an adaptive optics (AO) fundus camera and to correlate these findings with the findings of optical coherence tomography (OCT). DESIGN: Retrospective, observational case series METHODS: Medical charts of 21 eyes of 21 patients who had undergone surgery for fovea-off rhegmatogenous retinal detachment were retrospectively studied...

PURPOSE: To compare intraocular pressure (IOP) and IOP-lowering treatment requirements in patients with late in-the-bag intraocular lens (IOL) dislocation operated with 2 different methods, and to assess whether an IOP decrease after surgery can be expected. DESIGN: Prospective, randomized, parallel-group clinical trial. METHODS: In our university clinic, 104 patients (eyes) were randomly assigned to IOL repositioning by scleral suturing (n = 54) or IOL exchange with retropupillar iris-claw lens (n = 50)...
