BACKGROUND: Silicone oil (SO) is used as an intravitreal tamponade agent in vitreoretinal surgery for rhegmatogenous retinal detachment (RRD) complicated by proliferative vitreoretinopathy or with large, multiple retinal tears. Usually, SO is left in the eye for at least 3 months. Although its use can lead to well-known complications, intraocular SO is generally well tolerated. Some studies have reported unexpected central vision loss after SO use or removal. OBJECTIVE: To investigate and analyze the reason for visual loss after the use or removal of intraocular SO in patients who underwent vitrectomy surgeries for RRD...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the differences in anatomical and visual function changes after macular hole (MH) surgery using the International Vitreomacular Traction Study classification. METHODS: Patients who underwent vitrectomy and blood-assisted internal limiting membrane peeling because of MHs were enrolled in the present study. The patients were divided into three groups according to the sizes of their MHs (small: ≤250 μm, medium: >250 μm and ≤400 μm, and large: >400 μm)...

Ocular cysticercosis is a serious condition with a potential for complete vision loss if left untreated. Intravitreal cysticercosis is the most common ocular form of cysticercosis and is associated with retinal detachment, retinal traction, subretinal scarring and vitritis. To the best of our knowledge, there is no report of the occurrence of a live intravitreal cysticercosis with a full thickness macular hole (FTMH) in the literature. We here report a case of live intravitreal cysticercosis with a FTMH along with its management and intraoperative optical coherence tomography features of the live cysticercus...

Despite being a posterior segment ocular surgery, pars plana vitrectomy (PPV) may also affect anterior segment parameters. We aimed to investigate anterior segment alterations following PPV using ultrasound biomicroscopy (UBM) to visualize the structural anatomy of the eye. In this study, we enrolled phakic patients undergoing PPV (as the sole procedure). The anterior chamber depth, crystalline lens anterior-posterior (AP) diameter, anterior chamber angle, ciliary body dimensions, and integrity of the ciliary zonules and posterior capsule were assessed using UBM before and at least 3 months after PPV...

A 75-year-old Caucasian female with a full-thickness macular hole underwent a successful surgical repair. Vision improved from 20/400 to 20/30 after surgery. Two years later, the patient presented with a decreased vision after a fall onto her face with a reopened full-thickness macular hole. Vision decreased to 20/400 and then she underwent a second surgery with an internal limiting membrane peeling, which resulted in a second successful closure of her macular hole. Vision following the second surgery was 20/100...

INTRODUCTION: Postoperative eccentric macular hole (MH) formation is an uncommon complication after pars plana vitrectomy (PPV) with internal limiting membrane (ILM) peeling for epiretinal membrane or MH treatment. Herein, we present a case of eccentric MH formation after PPV with ILM peeling for MH. CASE DESCRIPTION: A 72-year-old female patient underwent 23-gauge PPV with ILM peeling for idiopathic MH in her right eye. The visual acuity was 6/24 in the right eye...

PURPOSE: To investigate the correlation between the length of external limiting membrane (ELM), ellipsoid zone (EZ) and interdigitation zone (IZ) defects and visual prognosis in patients undergoing macular hole (MH) surgery, using spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT). METHODS: This is a retrospective, consecutive, observational case series study. Fifty-two eyes of 52 patients with primary MH were evaluated. A quantitative analysis of ELM, EZ and IZ defects was performed preoperatively and at 3 and 6 months postoperatively using SD-OCT...

Purpose. To report the anatomic and visual results of a new sutureless illuminated macular buckle designed for patients with macular hole retinal detachment related to high myopia (MMHRD). Design. Prospective nonrandomized comparative interventional trial. Methods. Twenty myopic eyes of 20 patients (mean age, 51.4 years; range, 35-65 years) presenting with MMHRD with a posterior staphyloma, in whom the new buckle was used, were evaluated. The buckle used was assembled from a 5 mm wide sponge and a 7 mm wide silicone tire; it was fixed utilizing the sterile topical adhesive Histoacryl Blue (B Braun, TS1050044FP) which polymerizes in seconds upon being exposed to water-containing substances...

BACKGROUND: To evaluate macular changes in fellow eyes of patients diagnosed with lamellar macular hole (LMH) using spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) and blue fundus autofluorescence (B-FAF). METHODS: Fellow eyes of patients diagnosed with a LMH were retrospectively evaluated on OCT. Best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA) and central foveal thickness (CFT) were recorded. Corresponding B-FAF images, vitreo-macular relations, and type of epiretinal membranes (ERMs) were also examined...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the microstructural features of cytomegalovirus (CMV) retinitis by spectral domain optical coherence tomography (OCT). METHODS: Subjects were patients with macula-involving CMV retinitis with OCT imaging. The leading edge of retinitis in the macula was identified based on fundus imaging, and OCT findings were longitudinally evaluated in three areas: within the area of active retinitis, at the leading edge of retinitis, and just beyond the leading edge of retinitis...

PURPOSE: To measure the submacular choroidal thickness in eyes with idiopathic macular hole (IMH) compared with unaffected fellow eyes and normal control eyes. METHODS: In this single institutional retrospective comparative case-control study, 34 consecutive patients with IMH were included and compared with 30 normal age- and sex-matched eyes that were planned to have cataract surgery. The included eyes were divided into 4 groups: 41 eyes with IMH (A), 23 unaffected fellow eyes (B), 30 normal eyes (C), and 12 vitrectomized IMH eyes (D)...

PURPOSE: To determine the correlation between the preoperative basal diameter of macular hole, the postoperative area of high autofluorescence (AF) in macula, and visual acuity in full-thickness macular hole. METHODS: Forty-nine patients with full-thickness macular hole who underwent vitrectomy and C3F8 filling were reviewed. The preoperative diameter of macular hole, the 6 months postoperative area of high AF in macula if it existed, the length of inner segment/outer segment (IS/OS) defect, and visual acuity were obtained...

PURPOSE: The aim of the present study was to assess the expression of miRNAs in the Vitreous Humor (VH) of patients with Macular Hole (MH) and Epiretinal Membrane (ERM) compared to a control group. METHODS: In this prospective, comparative study, 2-ml of VH was extracted from the core of the vitreous chamber in consecutive patients who underwent standard vitrectomy for ERM and MH. RNA was extracted and TaqMan® Low Density Arrays (TLDAs) were used to profile the transcriptome of 754 miRNAs...

PURPOSE: To report the retinal phenotype of a rare case of long-chain 3-hydroxyacyl-CoA dehydrogenase (LCHAD)/trifunctional protein (TFP) deficiency diagnosed in his late 40s with ocular findings of diffuse chorioretinal atrophy and bilateral retinoschisis. METHODS: An acylcarnitine profile assay revealed LCHAD/TFP deficiency in a 45-year-old man with a history of high myopia, bilateral decreased vision, episodic rhabdomyolysis, and peripheral neuropathy. Ocular findings were evaluated with spectral domain optical coherence tomography (Spectralis OCT; Heidelberg Engineering, Heidelberg, Germany) and color fundus photography...
