Challenges in the Diagnosis & Management of VRL

Sep 28, 2022

Most patients with vitreoretinal lymphoma (VRL), a form of diffuse large B-cell lymphoma, will lose their eyesight and eventually die from the disease. Clinical symptoms of vitreous opacities and crea...

Imaging Insights into the Developing Fovea

Sep 28, 2022

Histological research conducted over the past few decades has confirmed the fovea's early development. However, this method's success has been hampered by structural deformation caused by sample proce...

Molecular Bases of Rods & Cones Differences

Sep 28, 2022

The Genetic Basis for Adult Onset Glaucoma

Sep 28, 2022

The loss of retinal ganglion cells, the outcome of a set of eye illnesses known together as glaucoma, is the primary cause of permanent blindness worldwide. In addition to being older and having a fam...

GATT Following Failed iStent Surgery

Sep 27, 2022

The report on 4 eyes that were initially treated with phacoemulsification and iStent trabecular microbypass (Glaukos Corporation). In these patients, the iStent was removed, and gonioscopy-assisted tr...

Peripapillary OCTA Scans of 4.5 by 4.5 mm in Glaucoma & Non-Glaucoma Eyes

Sep 27, 2022

Optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) 4.5x4.5 mm images of the peripapillary vessels demonstrated strong repeatability and reproducibility in both non glaucomatous and glaucomatous eyes, wit...

Optic Disc Tilt Effect on the pVD Measurement Using OCTA

Sep 27, 2022

Peripapillary vascular density (pVD) and long-term measurement reliability in optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) were significantly lower in eyes with the tilted disc (TD). When controlli...

Open Conjunctiva Ab Externo for XEN45 Gel Stent Implantation

Sep 27, 2022

The feasibility and efficacy of implanting a XEN45 gel stent via an open conjunctiva ab externo technique were evaluated. At 12 months of follow-up, both intraocular pressure (IOP) and the number of g...

Prolene GATT Outcomes in POAG and PXG

Sep 27, 2022

Initial intraocular pressure (IOP) reduction following Gonioscopy-assisted transluminal trabeculectomy (GATT) is greater in patients with pseudoexfoliative glaucoma (PXG) than in those with primary op...

Outcomes From Delayed-Onset BRE Treated With PPV Vs. Vitreous Biopsy

Sep 27, 2022

Bleb-related endophthalmitis (BRE) is a potentially blinding consequence of glaucoma filtration surgery. Pars plana vitrectomy (PPV) and vitreous biopsy, and intravitreal antibiotic (TI) injection pro...

Macular Vascular Density & Peripapillary in Patients

Sep 27, 2022

There was a decrease in both the average thickness of the retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) and the circumpapillary vascular density (cpVD) in various regions of the eye in patients with preperimetric ...

Regional MVD and Central VF Damage in Advanced Glaucoma Eyes

Sep 27, 2022

It has been found that in advanced glaucoma, the sensitivity of the central 10-degree visual field (VF) is substantially correlated with both the density of superficial vessels in the macula and the t...

Smoking Effects on ONH Microvasculature Density in Glaucoma

Sep 27, 2022

Open-angle glaucoma (OAG) patients who smoked heavily had a lower density of capillaries in their whole superficial images. The purpose of this study was to use optical coherence tomography angiograph...
