  • Procedure
  • His most widely known invention to date is LASIK eye surgery, a vision correction procedure designed to allow people to see clearly without glasses. (wikipedia.org)
  • retinopathy
  • Those patients with uncontrolled POAG needing changes in medication and/or surgery, proliferative retinopathy, or other significant ocular pathology were excluded. (arvojournals.org)
  • sutureless
  • A local anaesthetic approach with sutureless incisions makes day case surgery possible and rapid rehabilitation a reality for most patients. (wcea.education)
  • reduction
  • Before surgery, in macula-off patients we observed a marked reduction of capillary flow in superficial, deep and choriocapillary layers. (arvojournals.org)
  • surgical
  • The charts of patients with diagnosed POAG and co-existing uncomplicated VR pathology with and without visually significant cataracts that had VR surgery from an Ambulatory Surgical Center from February 2007 to December 2008 were collected and reviewed. (arvojournals.org)

  • Risk factors associated with complex vitreoretinal surgery for patients with diabetes. (arvojournals.org)
  • Retinal surgery causes a significant amount of morbidity in patients with diabetes mellitus (DM). (arvojournals.org)
  • We performed a comparative cohort study to identify factors associated with complex surgery for patients with DM at a tertiary referral academic center. (arvojournals.org)
  • All patients underwent a complete ophthalmological examination, including fundus photography, spectral-domain OCT ( Cirrus 5000 SD-OCT, Zeiss, Germany) and OCT-A (Optovue XR Avanti, Optovue, USA), before and at follow-up visits ranging from 1 month to 6 months after RRD surgery. (arvojournals.org)
  • After surgery, in macula-off patients, SD OCT demonstrated the presence of foveolar lucencies in 17% of cases, while OCT-A revealed enlargement and irregular changes of the foveal avascular zone ( FAZ ), and a residual significant hypoperfusion at the level of outer retina and photoreceptors.
