Comparison of central laminar thickness in optic neuropathy and normal eyes

The study compares central laminar thickness (LT) among patients with glaucomatous optic neuropathy (GON), patients with non-GON and normal subjects. The non-GON group comprised eyes with demyelinating optic neuropathy (ON), anterior ischaemic ON, compressive ON, Leber hereditary ON and traumatic...

Visual outcomes, visual fields and optical coherence tomography in paediatric craniopharyngioma

This study reviews the visual outcomes of ten patients under the age of 18 years with craniopharyngioma. The paper also reviews the correlation between visual field (VF) testing and optical coherence tomography (OCT) examination and evaluates the role of OCT...

Choroidal and RNFL thickness in patients with OSAS

In obstructive sleep apnoea syndrome (OSAS), hypoxia secondary to repetitive apnoeic episodes leads to blood pressure variations and haemodynamic changes. There is also intermittent activation of the sympathetic system when the patient is aroused from sleep during apnoeic episodes. OSAS...

Structural effects of migraine on the retina

Migraine is a common, chronic, multifactorial neuro-vascular disorder typically characterised by recurrent attacks of disabling headache and autonomic nervous system dysfunction (migraine without aura). Up to one third of patients also have neurological aura symptoms (migraine with aura). The objective...

Long-term retinal changes following unilateral retrobulbar optic neuritis

The aim of this study was to assess the longitudinal changes in retinal nerve fibre layer (RNFL) thickness after a first attack of optic neuritis and to investigate the impact of treatment on RNFL thinning at one year after the...

Effect of anti-VEGF treatment on PED morphology

This retrospective study of 30 eyes assessed the effect of anti-VEGF on morphology of pigment epithelial detachments (PED) secondary to age-related macular degeneration (AMD). Thirty eyes of 28 patients with PED were compared to 30 eyes of 30 patients with...

Choroidal and macular thickness in nonarteritic anterior ischaemic optic neuropathy

This study evaluates the choroidal and macular thickness in patients with chronic nonarteritic anterior ischaemic optic neuropathy (NA-AION). Two groups of subjects were compared, group one included 20 eyes with chronic NA-AION and group two, 31 healthy control eyes. The...

Correlation between structural and functional status of optic nerve and retina in multiple sclerosis

Multiple sclerosis (MS) involves autoimmune inflammatory demyelination and axonal degeneration in the central nervous system. Investigation of the retina and optic nerve head (ONH) is an ideal way to visualise this demyelination. This study investigates the functional and structural properties...

Optical coherence tomography in patients exposed to vigabatrin

Vigabatrin is used to treat epilepsy and can lead to increased levels of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) in the brain and in the retina leading to binasal visual field defects. Although not the first line of treatment for adults it is...

Spectral domain OCT vs. confocal scanning laser ophthalmoscope in measuring RNFL thickness

The aim of this prospective study was to compare the retinal nerve fibre layer thickness (RNFL) measurements obtained from the Cirrus optical coherence tomography (spectral domain OCT) with the Heidelberg Retinal Tomograph 3 (HRT3, confocal scanning laser ophthalmoscope). Eighty-eight normal...

Exudative age-related macular degeneration

The authors looked at macular lesions in eyes with newly diagnosed exudative age-related macular degeneration. The eyes of 23 patients were included and tested for visual acuity, contrast sensitivity, microperimetry, optical coherence tomography (OCT) and fluorescein and indocyanine green angiography....

Density of cataract and its influence on retinal nerve fibre layer thickness

The aim of this study was to further define and model the influence of cataract on spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SDOCT) image quality and retinal nerve fibre layer (RNFL) thickness measurements. OCT quality is influenced by opacities in the...
