PURPOSE: Stereopsis, as a part of visual function, is the ability of differentiating between the two eyes' views (binocular disparity), due to the eyes' different positions. The aim of this study was to compare stereoscopic vision before and after photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) in myopia. METHODS: In a prospective interventional case series study clinical trial, forty-eight myopic individuals (age range: 18-34 years) who had undergone PRK surgery by a Bausch & Lomb Technolas 217z excimer laser were included...

A 41-year-old man was referred with a complaint of visual loss in his left eye and his best corrected visual acuity was 20/80. Slit lamp examination showed arborizing conjunctival vessels and dry eye. Fundus examination and fluorescein angiography revealed a non-ischemic central retinal vein occlusion. Cardiovascular, rheumatologic, and hematologic work up showed no abnormal findings. An ascertained history of exposure to sulfur mustard during the Iran-Iraq war was documented in his medical history. Four sessions of intravitreal bevacizumab injections were done as needed...

BACKGROUND: Chronic inflammation has a role in the pathogenesis of diabetic retinopathy. Infection with intracellular organisms may incite chronic inflammation. This study was conducted to investigate the association between previous infection with Chlamydia pneumoniae (an intracellular microorganism) and diabetic retinopathy. METHODS: Patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (30-60 years old) and age-matched normal controls were recruited. Patients with history of cardiovascular or cerebrovascular disease, recent pulmonary infection and the presence of age-related macular degeneration were excluded from the study...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the effects of propofol, etomidate, and thiopental administered during phacoemulsification (PE) cataract extraction on intraocular pressure (IOP) and hemodynamic responses with insertion of laryngeal mask airway (LMA). METHODS: In a randomized double-blind clinical trial, patients scheduled for PE with general anesthesia were included. Patients were allocated randomly to 3 groups: group 1 (n=34): 0.3 mg/kg etomidate; group 2 (n=33): 2 mg/kg propofol; and group 3 (n=34): 4 mg/kg thiopental...
