Wide-field angiography for diagnosis and follow-up of Eales disease: a case series

We present a case series in which 5 eyes of 3 patients with Eales disease were evaluated by using retinal fluorescein angiography with 30 º, 50º, and 150º lenses in a laser-scanning ophthalmoscope. These cases highlight the usefulness of wide-field fluorescein angiography in the diagnosis and follow-up of peripheral ischemic retinal areas in Eales disease, which enables better follow-up than possible with conventional fluorescein a ngiography images.RESUMO A angiografia de campo amplo permite avaliar áreas periféricas com melhor qualidade e proporciona maior foco profundo, melhorando a imagem da periferia. Alguns estudos têm proposto a utilidade desses sistemas angiográficos nas doenças inflamatórias da retina. No entanto, poucos estudos avaliaram esta técnica na doença de Eales. Apresen tamos uma série de casos em que 5 olhos de 3 pacientes com doença de Eales foram avaliados usando angiografia de fluoresceína da retina com lentes de 30º, 50º e 150º em um oftalmoscópio de varredura a laser. Esses casos destacam a utilidade da angiografia com fluoresceína de campo amplo no d iagnóstico e no acompanhamento das áreas isquêmicas periféricas da retina na doença de Eales, permitindo um melhor acompanhamento do o possível com imagens por angiofluoresceinografia convencional.

Purpose: To investigate the difference in choroidal hyperpermeability (CH) assessed using digital fundus camera (DFC) and scanning laser ophthalmoscope (SLO) and its effect on photodynamic therapy (PDT) outcomes in chronic central serous chorioretinopathy. Methods: Midphase indocyanine green angiography (ICGA) images were acquired using both DFC and SLO in 38 consecutive eyes with chronic central serous chorioretinopathy in this retrospective study. Scanning laser ophthalmoscope-ICGA was taken immediately after DFC-ICGA. Photodynamic therapy was applied to the area of CH associated with subretinal fluid (CH-SRF). The ...

Polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy (PCV) is a clinical syndrome with unique indocyanine green angiography (ICGA) features of typical nodular hyperfluorescence that was initially thought to be an intrachoroidal vascular abnormality. Confocal scanning laser ophthalmoscopic ICGA has shown that the associated branching vascular network (BVN) is similar to occult choroidal neovascularization angiographically. The advent of spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (OCT) has shown that the BVN is indistinguishable from type 1 choroidal neovascularization (CNV), occupying the space between the retinal pigment epithelium and the...

This study demonstrates that in vivo OCT-A imaging in small animals is feasible and allows for precise analysis of the formation of new blood vessel formation in the animal model of laser-induced CNV. Given its superior axial resolution, sensitivity and non-invasiveness compared to conventional FA imaging, OCT-A opens the door for a more detailed evaluation of CNV development in such a model and, thus, enables the analysis of the response to novel therapeutic interventions in longitudinal in vivo studies.

Conclusion: The LRP2 knockout mice, retinopathy globe enlarged (rge) chicks, and normal lid-sutured chicks exhibit features typical for myopic maculopathy in patients and could serve to further elucidate the pathogenesis of myopic maculopathy.

We report a case of peripheral retinal injury caused by a 1064-nm Nd:YAG: neodymium-doped yttrium aluminum garnet. Patient concerns: A 27-year-old Asian woman was admitted with scotoma symptoms in her right eye. The patient was a skin care technician. Three days before admission, a laser beam had struck her eye while she was preparing for a laser procedure. Diagnosis: During fundus examination, a subretinal hemorrhage with disc diameter (DD) of 4.0 and a preretinal hemorrhage of 2.5 DD in its center were found in the 2 o’clock position of the peripheral retina in the right eye. Interventions: We monitored th...

CONCLUSIONS: Our study shows that uveitis associated with RP may manifest as generalised, anterior or posterior uveitis. The incidence of inner ear involvement and arthritis in these patients was lower than that in Caucasians. Female patients seem to have milder inflammation and a better visual prognosis.

ConclusionsSwept source structural optical coherence tomography (B scans and “en face” images) and optical coherence tomography angiography allowed the observation of retinal structural details and the involvement of each retinal layer and capillary plexus in enhanced S-cone syndrome. Of interest, neither of the twoNR2E3 gene variants found in this case report have been linked to any form of retinopathy.

We report the case of a 4-year-old girl who presented with esotropia, enophthalmos, no light perception, and afferent pupillary defect in her left eye; fundus examination revealed morning glory disk anomaly. Ultrasound B-scan showed axial length increasing in the left eye on consensual light exposure. Magnetic resonance imaging/angiogram of the brain and orbits were within normal limits except for globe elongation posteriorly in the left eye. On examination under anesthesia with video indirect ophthalmoscopy, the left optic disk showed contraction and expansion when stimulated by strong light to the fellow eye and no spont...

Abstract BACKGROUND/AIMS: The study aims to investigate changes in the optic nerve sheath diameter (ONSD) at high altitude and to assess correlation to optic disc oedema (ODE) and acute mountain sickness (AMS). This investigation is part of the Tübingen High Altitude Ophthalmology study. METHODS: Fourteen volunteers ascended to 4559 m for 4 days before returning to low altitude. Ultrasonography of ONSD, quantification of optic disc parameters using a scanning laser ophthalmoscope and fluorescein angiography were performed at 341 m and at high altitude. Pearson's coeffici...
