PURPOSE: To analyze the multimodal imaging features in a case showing resolution of retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) apertures in association with an avascular pigment epithelium detachment secondary to nonneovascular age-related macular degeneration. METHODS: Report of a case diagnosed with aperture of the RPE with multimodal imaging long-term follow-up. Color fundus photography, fundus autofluorescence, eye-tracked spectral domain optical coherence tomography (OCT), and OCT angiography finding...

PURPOSE To evaluate the prevalence of AMD among optometric telemedicine users in Spain and to identify risk factors. METHODS Retrospective analysis of a nationwide database conducted on subjects attending to optometry centers, between January 2013 and December 2019. Fundus photographs were performed by optometrists, using non-mydriatic cameras, and evaluated by a group of 12 retina specialists. RESULTS Among the 119,877 subjects included, the overall prevalence of AMD was 7.6%. The prevalence of...

Abstract The case is presented on a young Honduran female with no medical history of note, who presented with multiple areas of exudative retinal detachment (RD), and a best-corrected visual acuity of 1.3 logMAR in both eyes. She was diagnosed with incomplete Vogt-Koyanagi-Harada syndrome, and treated early with a combination of intravenous therapy with 1 g of prednisolone per day for 3 days, as recommended by published evidence, as well as mycophenolate mofetil (2 g per day). During the cortico...

PURPOSE To describe various clinical features of idiopathic juxtafoveal retinal telangiectasis group 2A or idiopathic macular telangiectasia type 2 (MacTel) on multicolor imaging (MCI) and compare imaging findings of MacTel on MCI with fundus autofluorescence (FAF). METHODS Patients with a clinical diagnosis of MacTel based on Gass and Blodi's classification were included. FAF and MCI images were graded qualitatively for stage of disease, margins of involvement, hyperautofluorescence on FAF (cor...

Purpose To comprehensively evaluate visual function in eyes with geographic atrophy (GA) as compared to normal eyes. Patients and Methods Sixty-three eyes from 63 patients ≥50 years old were recruited for this observational study; 31 were identified as normal macular health eyes and 32 with GA. Visual function was tested with best corrected visual acuity (BCVA), low luminance visual acuity (LLVA), low luminance deficit (LLD), reading speed, macular integrity microperimetry, fixation stability, a...

PURPOSE: To report our experience in non-contact wide-angled visualization with chandelier-assisted scleral buckling (SB) in uncomplicated primary rhegmatogenous retinal detachments (RRD). METHODS: Retrospective case series of 282 eyes that underwent non-contact wide-angled visualization with chandelier-assisted SB and were followed for a mean of 13.5 months. RESULTS: There were 160 male patients. The average age was 42.6 years old. There were 262 eyes that were phakic, 18 pseudophakic, and 2 ap...
