    1. Swept source optical coherence tomography and optical coherence tomography angiography in pediatric enhanced S-cone syndrome: a case report

      Swept source optical coherence tomography and optical coherence tomography angiography in pediatric enhanced S-cone syndrome: a case report

      Background Enhanced S-cone syndrome is an autosomal recessive retinal dystrophy related to a defect in a nuclear receptor gene ( NR2E3 ) that leads to alteration in cells development from rod to S-cone. This retinal dystrophy may be associated with retinal schisis. The aim of this report is to describe structural optical coherence tomography and optical coherence tomography angiography features in a case of enhanced S-cone syndrome associated with macular schisis. Case presentation A Caucasian 13-year-old girl underwent measurement of best corrected visual acuity, ophthalmoscopic evaluation, and fundus autofluorescence examination. Photopic and scotopic electroretinography were carried out as well. Enhanced S-cone syndrome ...

    2. Sequential Spectral Domain Optical Coherence Tomography Imaging of An Eye After Successful Removal of Subfoveal Perfluorcarbon Liquid Collection

      Sequential Spectral Domain Optical Coherence Tomography Imaging of An Eye After Successful Removal of Subfoveal Perfluorcarbon Liquid Collection

      Purpose: To evaluate retinal restoration after subfoveal perfluorcarbon liquid (PFCL) bubble removal by means of autofluorescence, infrared, and spectral domain optical coherence tomography over 2 years of follow-up. Methods: A 62-year-old patient underwent two 23-gauge vitrectomies in attempt to remove subretinal PFCL retained under the fovea secondary to retinal detachment surgery in the left eye. We assessed best-corrected visual acuity, fundus biomicroscopy, retinal imaging by autofluorescence, infrared, and spectral domain optical coherence tomography at the first observation of retained PFCL, 1 day after the first attempt of PFCL removal, and 1, 30, 90, and 180 days, and 2 years after ...

    3. Differential Vulnerability of Retinal Layers to Early Age-Related Macular Degeneration: Evidence by SD-OCT Segmentation Analysis.

      Differential Vulnerability of Retinal Layers to Early Age-Related Macular Degeneration: Evidence by SD-OCT Segmentation Analysis.

      Purpose:To evaluate layer-by-layer retinal thickness in spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT), determined by automated segmentation analysis (ASA) software in healthy and early age-related maculopathy (ARM) eyes. Methods:Fifty-seven eyes, specifically, 19 healthy eyes under 60 years old, 19 healthy eyes over 60, and 19 ARM eyes, were recruited into this cross-sectional study. The mean ages were 36.78 (SD: ± 13.82), 69.89 (SD: ± 6.14) and 66.10 (SD: ± 8.67) years, respectively, in the three study groups. SD-OCT scans were transferred into a dedicated software program that performed automated segmentation of different retinal layers. Results:Automated layer ...

    4. Spectral-Domain Optical Coherence Tomography in Irvine–Gass Syndrome

      Spectral-Domain Optical Coherence Tomography in Irvine–Gass Syndrome

      Purpose: To report longitudinal evaluation of morphology and function, by spectral-domain optical coherence tomography and Early Treatment Diabetic Retinopathy Study visual acuity, respectively, in patients with cystoid macular edema after cataract surgery (Irvine–Gass syndrome). Methods: Fifteen eyes (15 patients) with a diagnosis of cystoid macular edema related to Irvine–Gass syndrome underwent ocular ophthalmologic examinations including Early Treatment Diabetic Retinopathy Study visual acuity and macular morphology assessment by spectral-domain optical coherence tomography. An observational period of 3 months after surgery was considered before starting therapy with oral acetazolamide and topical indomethacin. Patients' eyes were tested at baseline and at ...

    5. Structure–function relationship in ocular hypertension and glaucoma: interindividual and interocular analysis by OCT and pattern ERG

      Abstract Background  Pattern electroretinogram (PERG) and optical coherence tomography (OCT) represent objective probes to investigate respectively the function of retinal ganglion cells and their structure as retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thickness. We examined interindividual (II) correlations of PERG amplitude and RNFL thickness, as well as correlations between interocular (IO) differences in both measures, in ocular hypertension (OHT) and early glaucoma (EG) patients. Methods  Thirty-one OHT, 34 EG (mean deviation: −1 to −6 dB) and 16 age-matched controls were examined in both eyes. Participants had clear optical media, no or moderate refractive errors and no concomitant ocular or systemic diseases ...
