• fundus
  • Patient adherence to long-term treatment is key to reduction of visual impairment from diabetic retinopathy (DR).

  • Unlike the typical symptoms of floaters, some patients complain of tiny floaters that show up a day after cataract surgery and disappear within a few months. (medsci.org)
  • The medical records of all patients who were older than 18 years and underwent phacoemulsification cataract surgery from March 2011 to June 2014 at the Hallym University Sacred Heart hospital, Korea, were reviewed. (medsci.org)
  • referable
  • Slit lamp examination findings were compared to digital fundal photographs for the detection of any retinopathy and for referable retinopathy in 398 patients (794 eyes). (bmj.com)
  • photographic
  • Scotland is using a three-stage screening procedure, in which the first stage is one-field nonmydriatic digital photography with mydriatic photography used for failures of nonmydriatic photography and slit-lamp biomicroscopy for failures of both photographic methods. (diabetesjournals.org)
  • effect
  • Since both these agents act on different effector sites, their simultaneous use produces an additive mydriatic effect. (nih.gov)
  • Due to the esterases existed in the aqueous humour and ocular tissues, ibopamine can be rapidly hydrolysed to epinine which is the active molecule responsible for the mydriatic effect. (wikipedia.org)
  • detect
  • To detect this difference with 80% power and 5% significance level, 3,650 patients had to be examined, allowing for an estimated ungradable image rate of 15% with nonmydriatic photography. (diabetesjournals.org)
  • retinopathy
  • 1 In patients with type 2 diabetes, 15% will require laser treatment three years after detecting mild bilateral background retinopathy at baseline. (bmj.com)
  • After 20 years of disease, almost all patients with type 1 and greater than 60% of patients with type 2 diabetes will have some degree of retinopathy. (bcidaho.com)
  • treatment
  • After an initial examination and collection of demographic and socioeconomic data, patients were given a standardized health talk about the importance of treatment compliance and not missing follow-up consultations. (arvojournals.org)
  • Positively identify the patient using at least two unique identifiers before providing care, treatment, or services. (thefreedictionary.com)
  • The patients were randomized into two treatment groups. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • Patients with documented asthma, requiring inhaled epinephrine or beta 2-agonist treatment. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • Inability
  • Inability of the patient to cooperate and remain still during the procedure because of age, significant pain, or mental status may interfere with the test results. (thefreedictionary.com)
  • digital
  • RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS -Randomized groups of 3,650 patients had one-field, nonmydriatic, 45° digital retinal imaging photography before mydriatic two-field photography. (diabetesjournals.org)
  • CONCLUSIONS -The strongest predictor of ungradable image rates, both for nonmydriatic and mydriatic digital photography, is the age of the person with diabetes. (diabetesjournals.org)
  • surgical
  • With one of the largest catalogs of medical, surgical and diagnostic supplies available online, Medex Supply can accommodate your facility's needs for Patient Care. (medexsupply.com)
  • This usually happens with posterior capsular (PC) rupture, but it can also develop in a large number of patients who undergo phacosurgery without significant surgical complications. (medsci.org)
  • diagnosis
  • The odds of having one eye ungradable increased by 2.6% (1.6-3.7) for each extra year since diagnosis for nonmydriatic, by 4.1% (2.7-5.7) for mydriatic photography irrespective of age, by 5.8% (5.0-6.7) for nonmydriatic, and by 8.4% (6.5-10.4) for mydriatic photography for every extra year of age, irrespective of years since diagnosis. (diabetesjournals.org)
  • effects
  • After being hydrolysed to epinine, ibopamine is able to stimulate the alpha-adrenergic and D1 dopaminergic receptors, thereby exhibiting mydriatic effects. (wikipedia.org)
  • accommodation
  • Also, since the lens is responsible for adjusting the focus of vision to different lengths, patients with aphakia have a total loss of accommodation. (wikipedia.org)
  • diabetes
  • Patients with hypertension, hyperthyroidism, diabetes or cardiac disease (i.e., arrhythmias or chronic ischemic heart disease) should be monitored after instillation. (nih.gov)
  • adverse
  • Exclusion criteria were patients who experienced adverse events during phacosurgery such as posterior capsular rupture, zonular dialysis, or radial tear. (medsci.org)
  • Adverse events were similar in both trials, however, patients in the naldemedine group had slightly higher rates of adverse events. (wikipedia.org)
  • Another
  • If it is intended as an immediate follow up to another mydriatic drug (cocaine or apraclonidine), then the patient must wait anywhere from a day to a week before 4-hydroxyamphetamine can be administered. (wikipedia.org)
  • study
  • Prospective study to evaluate incidence, causes and potential risk factors for adrenal crisis in patients with chronic adrenal insufficiency. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • This is a prospective study following patients with chronic adrenal insufficiency by contacting them every 6 months via questionnaires and telephone. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • hours
