Visual accuity

INTRODUCTION: Intestinal perforation due to ingestion of a foreign body accounts for 21% of the total in our hospital. METHODS: All cases of intestinal perforation due to foreign body ingestion occurring since 1990 were collected (29 cases), and the visual characteristics of these patients were analysed. RESULTS AND DISCUSSION: The mean age was 74.2 years (all of them presbyopic) with the majority being female (1.9:1). The most frequently ingested foreign body was fish bone (55%)...

PURPOSE: To analyze and compare visual acuity, refractive outcomes and higher-order aberrations after standard and wavefront-guided Femto-LASIK at 1, 3, and 12 months postoperatively. METHODS: Study of 95 consecutive eyes of myopic patients (-0.5 to -7.0 D), who underwent Femto-LASIK with standard ablation profile (STA) (49 eyes) or wavefront-guided ablation (WFG) (46 eyes) using femtosecond laser LDV Ziemer and excimer laser MEL 80 Zeiss with iris registration...

The paper presents the evolution of a diabetic patient with CSME resistant to laser treatment. The intravitreal injection of Triamcinolone Acetonid represented a very efficient therapeutic solution the visual accuity improving for a period of 7-9 months.

PURPOSE: To evaluate the efficacy of the laser in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) technique in the reduction of anisometropy in adults, for whom conventional treatment was not successful. METHODS: A sequence of cases of three eyes of three adult patients, two females and one male, age ranging from 28 and 49 years (average 38.3 years), who underwent LASIK. Two patients were followed up for eighteen months and one for six months. RESULTS: Comparing the corrected visual acuity before surgery with the non-corrected visual acuity after surgery, one eye gained two lines of vision, one eye remained the same and one eye lost one line of vision...

OBJECTIVE: This study focuses on determining the intra- and post-operative complications stemming from technical difficulties, anatomical aspects, intraoperatory management and visual outcome of post-vitrectomized patients that undergo phacoemulsification. METHOD: In this prospective, longitudinal, observational and descriptive study phacoemulsification was performed in 25 post-vitrectomized eyes that required cataract surgery. Pre-surgical variables: sex, age, affected eye, visual accuity, underlying vitreoretinal disease, anterior segment morphological findings such as: cataract density and pupil alterations...

PURPOSE: The opaque contact lens (OCL) market is profitable and expanding. This pilot study sought to identify OCL color preferences among women of three ethnic groups, African American (A), white (W), and Hispanic Americans (H). METHODS: Sixty-three brown-eyed female subjects (19 A; 22 W; 22 H), 18 to 35 years of age, with uncorrected near visual accuity of at least 20/50 were recruited. Each subject was presented with OCLs of three different color pattern designs in each of four colors (blue, green, gray, and hazel)...

Five patients with Graves disease and bilateral proptosis were treated with different incisional approaches. They all underwent orbital decompression by removal of the anterior medial orbital walls, the anterior ethmoidal sinuses, the orbital floors, and multiple incisions of the orbital periosteums . The defatting technique, which consists of applying manual anterior orbital pressure with alternate removing of small lobules of fat, was added when it was intraoperatively decided by Hertel exophthalmometer measurement that more decompression was needed...

Neuromyelitis optica also named Devic's disease is an acute combined optic neuritis and transverse myelitis. It is thought to be a variant of multiple sclerosis, but its clinical presentation probably has only one attack without further recurrence and exacerbation. We present a 12-year-old girl who suffered from sudden onset of lower extremeties weakness, sensory loss and blurred vision after a prodromal URI symptom. CSF examination showed mild pleocytosis, elevated immunoglobulins, mild elevation of protein concentration...

Two methods were developed for the assessment of normal and disturbed visual development in infancy and early childhood: the preferential looking procedure (PL) as a psychophysical method and measurement of visual evoked potentials (VEP) as an electrophysiological principle. Both methods test visual functions, but on different levels of the visual system. Proper interpretation of the methods requires direct comparison. This was accomplished over a 12-months period in infants and young children with normal and disturbed visual development in the first year of life...

In 11 cases of leukaemia or other lymphatic system disease meningeal affection occurred together with an oedema of optic papilla. In 6 patients (9 eyes) visual accuity fell down till 0.1 or worse. By irradiation of retrobulbar spaces in 4 of 5 cases a marked visual accuity improvement was obtained. In 2 other patients an infiltration of optic nerve was found only post mortem through histological examination. In those patients visual accuity was not diminished.

A description is given of two patients who had a severe wound dehiscence with traumatic aphakia after perforating kertoplasty. In both cases, after vitrectomy and resuturing the transplant remained clear in its central part (visuel accuity 0.7 p). Details of the operative technic are discussed.
