Abstract
Background The influence of serous retinal detachment (SRD) on retinal sensitivity in patients with branch retinal vein occlusion (BRVO) and macular edema remains unclear. This is despite the frequent co-existence of SRD and cystoid macular edema (CME) in BRVO patients on optical coherence tomography (OCT) and the fact that CME is the most common form of macular edema secondary to BRVO. We investigated visual function (visual acuity and macular sensitivity), macular thickness, and macular volume in patients with BRVO and macular edema.

PURPOSE: To investigate the relations among best-corrected visual acuity, retinal sensitivity, retinal thickness, and retinal volume in patients with branch retinal vein occlusion, and macular edema. METHODS: In 49 consecutive patients with branch retinal vein occlusion (mean age, 68.2 ± 9.9 years; 25 women and 24 men), macular function was documented by microperimetry and best-corrected visual acuity was determined on the logarithm of the minimum angle of resolution scale. Retinal thickness and...

Background/aims: The relationship between the blood-flow velocity in the perifoveal capillaries and macular oedema was investigated in patients with branch retinal vein occlusion (BRVO). Methods: This study compared 18 patients with BRVO and 16 healthy volunteers. Perifoveal capillary blood-flow velocity was measured on fluorescein angiograms with a scanning laser ophthalmoscope by the tracing method. Retinal thickness at the central fovea was measured by optical coherence tomography. Then, the ...

PURPOSE: To study the correlation between final visual acuity and integrity of the foveal photoreceptor layer after resolution of macular edema (ME) associated with central retinal vein occlusion (CRVO). METHODS: We studied retrospectively 27 eyes of 27 patients with resolved ME associated with central retinal vein occlusion.

Purpose: To evaluate serially the course of structural changes in the macula in recent onset branch retinal vein occlusion (BRVO), using optical coherence tomography (OCT). Methods: Twenty eyes of patients at an institutional practice with recent onset BRVO were examined by OCT at presentation and at 3 and 6 months of onset of the occlusion. The macular thickness (MT) and the visual acuity were correlated with the macular perfusion status and analyzed statistically. Results: The mean MT at prese...

Abstract Background and objective The detection and characterization of the intraretinal fluid accumulation constitutes a crucial ophthalmological issue as it provides useful information for the identification and diagnosis of the different types of Macular Edema (ME). These types are clinically defined, according to the clinical guidelines, as: Serous Retinal Detachment (SRD), Diffuse Retinal Thickening (DRT) and Cystoid Macular Edema (CME). Their accurate identification and characterization fa...

Abstract An accurate detection of the macular edema (ME) presence constitutes a crucial ophthalmological issue as it provides useful information for the identification, diagnosis and treatment of different relevant ocular and systemic diseases. Serous Retinal Detachment (SRD) is a particular type of ME, which is characterized by the leakage of fluid that has a propensity of being accumulated in the macular region. This paper proposes a new methodology for the automatic identification and charact...

Macular edema consists of intra- or subretinal fluid accumulation in the macular region. It occurs during the course of numerous retinal disorders and can cause severe impairment of central vision. Major causes of macular edema include diabetes, branch and central retinal vein occlusion, choroidal neovascularization, posterior uveitis, postoperative inflammation and central serous chorioretinopathy. The healthy retina is maintained in a relatively dehydrated, transparent state compatible with op...

Abstract Macular edema accompanies many ocular pathologies, affecting visual function and is an important factor in treatment decisions and disease outcome. Though visual acuity is commonly used to evaluate patient vision it does not always provide a complete estimate of their visual abilities or reflect their own visual perception. Furthermore, different pathologies result in macular edema causing a variable effect on visual function, related to the rate of fluid accumulation and accompanying o...
