PURPOSE: To investigate retinal sensitivity (Se) in dome-shaped macula (DSM) using microperimetry and to correlate functional findings to specific spectral domain optical coherence tomography features. METHODS: Patients affected by DSM in at least 1 eye were consecutively enrolled in a prospective, cross-sectional study. All studied eyes performed best-corrected visual acuity measurement, microperimetry to assess Se and optical coherence tomography to investigate DSM pattern and to measure bulge height and retinal and choroidal thicknesses...

PURPOSE: To evaluate parafoveal microvasculature in eyes with circumscribed choroidal hemangioma using optical coherence tomography angiography. METHODS: Fourteen eyes with unilateral circumscribed choroidal hemangioma were imaged using OCT for central macular thickness and optical coherence tomography angiography for superficial and deep foveal avascular zone area, and superficial and deep capillary density (CD), comparing affected and paired fellow eyes. RESULTS: Mean patient age was 53 years, and mean visual acuity was 20/60 in the involved eye and 20/25 in the fellow eye...

Tso-Ting Lai, Chung-May Yang
PURPOSE: To report findings and surgical outcomes of lamellar macular hole (LMH) or full-thickness macular hole (FTMH) accompanied by lamellar hole-associated epiretinal proliferation (LHEP) in eyes with high myopia (HM). METHODS: Consecutive cases of HM with LMH or FTMH containing LHEP were retrospectively reviewed (study group, 43 cases). Cases of HM without LHEP (22) and those of non-HM with LHEP (30) served as Control A and B. RESULTS: The study group showed larger (928...

PURPOSE: To determine the prognosis of eyes with central retinal vein occlusion that had a preserved foveal depression at the baseline and were treated by intravitreal ranibizumab injections (IRIs). METHODS: The authors reviewed the medical records of 23 eyes of 23 consecutive treatment-naive patients who received IRIs to treat the macular edema due to central retinal vein occlusion. Eyes were classified by the pre-IRI presence or absence of a foveal depression...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the rate of epiretinal membrane (ERM) recurrence in eyes that underwent ERM peeling surgery at least 5 years earlier. METHODS: Retrospective interventional case series study of 37 patients (15 women and 22 men; mean age, 70 ± 7.6 years) operated on for ERM removal with a follow-up of at least 5 years. The patients underwent testing for visual acuity, an ophthalmic examination, and optical coherence tomography imaging, all of which were assessed preoperatively, postoperatively, and at the 5-year follow-up...

BACKGROUND: To report the 24-month efficacy and safety of the interleukin-6 receptor antagonist tocilizumab (TCZ) for refractory uveitis-related macular edema (ME). METHODS: Data were obtained by standardized chart review. Patients with quiescent uveitis seen at a single tertiary referral center, for whom ME was the principal cause of reduced visual acuity. OUTCOME MEASURES: Central foveal thickness measured by optical coherence tomography; degree of anterior and posterior chamber; inflammation (Standardization of Uveitis Nomenclature Working Group criteria); and visual acuity (Snellen and logarithm of the minimum angle of resolution) were recorded in all patients during TCZ therapy at months 1, 3, 6, 12, 18, and 24...

BACKGROUND/PURPOSE: Neovascular age-related macular degeneration (nAMD) is frequently associated with vascularized pigment epithelial detachment (v-PED). We observed a peculiar characteristic of v-PED characterized by small lacy folds of the retinal pigment epithelium, appearing as a wrinkled PED (w-PED) on spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT). Our purpose was to describe the visual prognosis and number of intravitreal injections in w-PED compared with non-w-PED. METHODS: In this retrospective, case-control series, we reviewed retrospectively medical records of 52 eyes of 51 patients who were consecutively included between November 1 and 30, 2015 with a previous minimum 3-year follow-up...

PURPOSE: The goal of this study was to assess the effects of a single injection of intravitreal ranibizumab (RAN) or bevacizumab (BEV) on the retinal vessel size in eyes with diabetic macular edema. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In total, 32 patients were enrolled in the RAN group, and 30 patients were included in BEV group. Each of these groups was also subdivided into two others groups: a study group and a control group. The study groups were composed of the injected eyes, whereas the noninjected fellow eyes served as the control groups...

PURPOSE: To investigate the relationship between subfoveal choroidal thickness and disease manifestation in a series of eyes with nonexudative age-related macular degeneration (AMD). METHODS: Retrospective study of eyes with nonexudative AMD. The extracellular deposits present, drusen and subretinal drusenoid deposits (SDD, pseudodrusen) along with a newly recognized form of drusen, pachydrusen, were graded and compared with choroidal thickness as determined by optical coherence tomography...

PURPOSE: To evaluate progression of macular telangiectasia Type 2 lesions and their correlation with visual acuity. METHODS: An international multicenter prospective study with annual examinations including best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA), fundus photography, fluorescein angiography, and optical coherence tomography images graded centrally. Mixed models were used to estimate progression rates, and a generalized linear model to compute the relative risk of BCVA loss, loss of ellipsoid zone (EZ) reflectivity, development of pigment plaques, or neovascularization...

PURPOSE: To determine the relationship between the clinical findings and the response to ranibizumab therapy in eyes with macular edema associated with branch retinal vein occlusion. METHODS: We reviewed the medical records of 68 patients with macular edema associated with a branch retinal vein occlusion. The patients were placed in the refractory group if the central foveal thickness remained more than 250 μm throughout the 6-month study period despite the ranibizumab therapy; otherwise, they were placed in the responsive group...

PURPOSE: To examine the alterations in retinal vascular morphology over an extended follow-up in eyes with macular telangiectasis Type 2 (MacTel2). METHODS: Eyes with high-quality digital photographs were evaluated. The geometric distortion in baseline images required to emulate the follow-up images was determined and vectors were made that represented the direction and magnitude of changes, to create a warp field. Optical coherence tomography and optical coherence tomography angiography evaluation of the retina was performed...

PURPOSE: To report a prospective, randomized comparative study assessing clinical outcomes of plain gut versus polyglactin 910 (PG910) sutures for sclerotomy closure after 23-gauge pars plana vitrectomy. METHODS: A single-masked, randomized, prospective study was undertaken with 49 eyes of 49 patients undergoing 23-gauge pars plana vitrectomy randomized to sclerotomy closure with either plain gut suture, PG910 (Vicryl) suture or a combination of the two. Assessment was based on both a postoperative pain scale and a standardized assessment of scleral inflammation at each suture site...
