    1. Retinal nerve fiber layer thickness by Stratus and Cirrus OCT in retrobulbar optic neuritis and nonarteritic ischemic optic neuropathy

      Retinal nerve fiber layer thickness by Stratus and Cirrus OCT in retrobulbar optic neuritis and nonarteritic ischemic optic neuropathy

      To compare retinal nerve fiber layer thickness (RNFLT) measurements by Stratus and Cirrus optical coherence tomography (OCT) and to evaluate agreement between the 2 instruments in retrobulbar optic neuritis (RON), nonarteritic ischemic optic neuropathy (NAION), and healthy controls. A total of 89 eyes with RON, 92 with NAION (6 to 12 months after diagnosis of acute disease), and 159 control eyes were studied. Average RNFLT was measured by Stratus and Cirrus OCTs. Comparisons among groups were performed by analysis of variance. Agreement between the 2 instruments was assessed using intraclass correlation coefficient (ICC) with 95% confidence interval (CI) and Bland-Altman ...

    2. Evaluation of macular thickness after uncomplicated cataract surgery using optical coherence tomography

      Evaluation of macular thickness after uncomplicated cataract surgery using optical coherence tomography

      Purpose: To evaluate central macular thickness (CMT) after cataract surgery in selected groups of patients. Methods: The study comprised 4 groups—patients with epiretinal membrane, patients with high myopia, patients with diabetes without retinopathy, and healthy subjects—who underwent phacoemulsification and intraocular lens implantation. Central macular thickness was measured with spectral domain optical coherence tomography (OCT) using the 3D macular cube scan. The OCT evaluation was performed preoperatively and 1, 6, 15, 30, 60, 90, and 360 days after surgery. Visual acuity was measured preoperatively and after 6 and 360 days after surgery. Results: The study included 258 patients, 164 ...

    3. Optical Coherence Tomography versus Stereoscopic Fundus Photography or Biomicroscopy for Diagnosing Diabetic Macular Edema: A Systematic Review

      PURPOSE. To review systematically the sensitivity and specificity of optical coherence tomography (OCT) for diagnosing macular edema attributable to diabetic retinopathy compared with well-established gold standard tests such as fundus stereophotography or contact and noncontact fundus biomicroscopy. METHODS. Medline and Embase were searched electronically and six major ophthalmic journals from 1998 to 2006 were hand searched. Two reviewers independently assessed trial searches, studied quality with the QUADAS (Quality Assessment of Diagnostic Accuracy Studies) checklist, and extracted data. The target disease was clinically significant macular edema (CSME) according to Early Treatment of Diabetic Retinopathy Study (ETDRS) criteria. A bivariate model was ...
