    1. Intravitreal Ranibizumab Monotherapy or Combined with Laser for Diabetic Macular Edema (OCT guided study)

      Intravitreal Ranibizumab Monotherapy or Combined with Laser for Diabetic Macular Edema (OCT guided study)

      Background: Diabetic retinopathy (DR) is the most frequent ocular complication of diabetes mellitus and the leading cause of blindness in the working age population in developing countries. Objective: The aim of this study was to compare central macular thickness using optical coherence tomography (OCT) between Ranibizumab 0.5 mg monotherapy over Ranibizumab 0.5 mg combined with laser based on mean average change in best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA) over 6 months in diabetic macular edema (DME). Patients and methods: The study was carried out on forty eyes of patients aged 30-75 years old, with type 1 or 2 diabetes mellitus ...

    2. Optical Coherence Tomography Assessment of Macular and Choroidal Thickness in Patients with Proliferative Diabetic Retinopathy in Relation to Hemoglobin A1C

      Optical Coherence Tomography Assessment of Macular and Choroidal Thickness in Patients with Proliferative Diabetic Retinopathy in Relation to Hemoglobin A1C

      Background: Diabetic retinopathy affects up to 80 % of all patients who have had diabetes for 10 years or more. Despite these intimidating statistics, research indicates that at least 90% of these new cases could be reduced if there were proper treatment and monitoring of the eyes blindness. Objective: To evaluate the relation of macular and choroidal thickness to HbA1c in patients with proliferative diabetic retinopathy. Patients and methods: This study included 40 eyes of 33 patients with a diagnosis of proliferative diabetic retinopathy (PDR). Patients were recruited from Retinal Clinic in Imbaba Eye Hospital and they were asked to participate ...

    3. Assessment of Retinal Nerve Fiber Layer Thickness Using Optical Coherence Tomography in Patients with Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus

      Assessment of Retinal Nerve Fiber Layer Thickness Using Optical Coherence Tomography in Patients with Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus

      Background: Diabetic retinopathy (DR) is the most common ocular complication of diabetes mellitus (DM) and considered one of the leading causes of blindness in developed countries. Diabetic retinopathy is predominantly a microangiopathy in which high glucose levels can make small blood vessels particularly, vulnerable to damage. Objective: The aim of this work was to assess the thickness of peripapillary retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) measured by Swept Source optical coherence tomography (SS-OCT) in patients with Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus (DM). Patients and Methods: The study was an observational cross-sectional study. The study was conducted on 40 eyes of diabetic patients ...

    4. Relation between Fundus Autofluorescence and Optical Coherence Tomography in Age Related Macular Degeneration

      Relation between Fundus Autofluorescence and Optical Coherence Tomography in Age Related Macular Degeneration

      Background: age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is a macular neurodegenerative disease that nowadays constitutes one of the main socioeconomical health issues worldwide, affecting the elderly population. The exponentially increasing prevalence of AMD is linked to progressive aging of the population, and it is the leading cause of legal blindness in the developed world. Objective: the study was designed to assess the relation between fundus autofluorescence (FAF) and Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) in cases of age related macular degeneration. Patients and Methods: this study is prospective randomized, non-interventional uncontrolled cross-sectional study was conducted on thirty patients. These patients already diagnosed to have ...

    5. Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography Study for Evaluation of Microvascular Changes in the Subclinical Diabetic Retinopathy

      Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography Study for Evaluation of Microvascular Changes in the Subclinical Diabetic Retinopathy

      Background: diabetic retinopathy is the specific microvascular complication of diabetes mellitus and affects 1 of 3 with DM. DR remains a leading cause of vision loss in working adult population. Patients with severe levels of DR were reported to have poor quality of life and reduced physical, emotional and social well-being, and they utilize more health care resources. Objective: this study aimed to evaluate the vascular density, perfusion density and foveal avascular parameters changes in subjects with diabetes mellitus showing no manifestations of diabetic retinopathy using optical coherence tomography angiography. Methods: 40 subjects were categorized into two groups, group A ...
