Branch retinal vein occlusion (BRVO) is ocular vascular disease affecting approximately 14 million people worldwide, and is closely associated with high blood pressure (BP). Although macular ischemia is a critical factor in the visual prognosis of BRVO, the relationship between macular ischemia and different patterns of nocturnal BP is unknown. Here, we investigated whether a dipping pattern of nocturnal BP is associated with the development of macular ischemia in patients with BRVO. A total of ...

Purpose To determine the mechanism of infection, clinical features, and risk factors of endophthalmitis after scleral fixation of an intraocular lens (IOL). Methods We included fifteen patients with infectious endophthalmitis after scleral fixation of an IOL between April 2004 and December 2017, as well as four patients found through a literature search. Thus, a total of nineteen patients were analyzed. Results Among nineteen eyes, infectious endophthalmitis developed at a mean of 23 months (ran...

BACKGROUND To investigate the effect of intravitreal dexamethasone implant (DEX implant) on hard exudate (HE) accompanying diabetic macular edema (DME). METHODS This study was a non-comparative non-randomized 1-year prospective interventional study. Patients with DME and HE were treated using DEX implant two or three times. Color fundus photography and optical coherence tomography (OCT) were performed at every visit. HE area was measured semi-automatically from the fundus photographs. RESULTS Th...

PURPOSE To compare visual improvements between initial intravitreal t-PA with gas injection before anti-vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and anti-VEGF injection monotherapy for submacular haemorrhage (SMH) associated with age-related macular degeneration (AMD). METHODS We retrospectively reviewed medical records of naive patients treated with intravitreal t-PA with gas injection before anti-VEGF (Group 1) or only with intravitreal anti-VEGF injection (Group 2) for SMH [disc area (DA) ≥ ...

Chronic endoplasmic reticulum stress resulting from misfolding of the visual pigment rhodopsin (RHO) can lead to loss of rod photoreceptors, which initiates retinitis pigmentosa, characterized initially by diminished nighttime and peripheral vision. Cone photoreceptors depend on rods for glucose transport, which the neurons use for assembly of visual pigment-rich structures; as such, loss of rods also leads to a secondary loss of cone function, diminishing high-resolution color vision utilized f...

This study was performed to investigate the efficacy of the treat-and-extend regimen using aflibercept for treating diabetic macular oedema (DME). This prospective, multicentre, interventional, single-arm, 104-week clinical trial included 48 patients with DME visual impairment. The patients' eyes received five consecutive intravitreal injections (2 mg aflibercept) every four weeks with two-week adjustments based on central subfield macular thickness (CSMT) changes. Injections were deferred when ...

Purpose We investigated risk factors for breakthrough vitreous hemorrhage (VH) after an intravitreal tissue plasminogen activator (tPA) and gas injection in patients with submacular hemorrhage (SMH) associated with age-related macular degeneration (AMD). Methods The medical records of patients diagnosed with SMH associated with AMD who received an intravitreal tPA (50 μg/0.05 mL) and perfluoropropane gas (0.3 mL) injection were reviewed retrospectively. We analyzed the associations of breakthrou...
