    1. Optical coherence tomography study of macular structural changes in silicone oil-filled eyes

      Optical coherence tomography study of macular structural changes in silicone oil-filled eyes

      Introduction Silicone oil (SO) has been used in complex cases of retinal detachment with proliferative vitreoretinopathy (PVR), giant retinal tear, and traumatic cases. This study aimed to assess macular structural changes in SO filled eyes after pars plana vitrectomy (PPV) for rhegmatogenous retinal detachment with PVR. Patients and methods This is a prospective interventional study that was conducted on 60 SO-filled eyes after successful PPV for rhegmatogenous retinal detachment with grade C PVR; SO was left in all eyes for a duration of 3 months. Thorough ophthalmic evaluation in Ophthalmology Department, Tanta University, Egypt was performed including best corrected visual ...

    2. Sensitivity of optical coherence tomography and visual evoked potential in demyelinating optic neuritis

      Sensitivity of optical coherence tomography and visual evoked potential in demyelinating optic neuritis

      Aim The aim of this study is to analyze the structural and functional abnormalities of the optic nerve in multiple sclerosis (MS) patients utilizing optical coherence tomography (OCT) and visual evoked potential (VEP). We compare between eyes with and without a history of neuritis. Patients and methods A cross-sectional study which compared 60 eyes of MS patients with 20 eyes of the healthy control group. MS patients were classified into MS with optic neuritis (MS-ON, n =44) and MS without optic neuritis (MS-NON, n =16). Both VEP and OCT were done. Results Both groups showed thinning in the retinal nerve ...

    3. Correlation between circumpapillary and macular retinal nerve fiber layer thickness measured by spectral domain optical coherence tomography and multifocal visual evoked potential in patients with primary open-angle glaucoma

      Correlation between circumpapillary and macular retinal nerve fiber layer thickness measured by spectral domain optical coherence tomography and multifocal visual evoked potential in patients with primary open-angle glaucoma

      Purpose This study attempts to examine the relationship between the function of postsynaptic activity of the visual pathway at the level of the striate cortex [multifocal visual evoked potential (mfVEP) responses] and the structural integrity of the retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) (by measuring the macular and circumpapillary RNFL thickness). Design This was a prospective nonrandomized interventional clinical study. Patients and methods Patients with controlled primary open-angle glaucoma were included in this study. They underwent complete ophthalmic examination, visual field testing, and macular and peripapillary RNFL thickness measurement by a spectral domain optical coherence tomography (OCT) and mfVEP testing. All ...
