Patients with intraretinal vascular or choroidal leakage, signs of active ocular inflammation, and foveal swelling are more likely to benefit from steroid therapy.
Using a spectral domain Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT), central foveal thickness and macular volume was assessed.
Irregular light washed out area (mottling) of the retina, lying within the macular area and the superior temporal, extending to where a fovea with foveal reflex is expected to develop.
Lam et al15 stated that in high myopes having age of 35 to 54 years, foveal thicknesses was greater but the macular thicknesses was considerably less.
In a study by the Ozurdex CHAMPLAIN study group, a 26-week evaluation of the safety and efficacy of Ozurdex was conducted on 55 vitrectomized eyes via OCT scanning and foveal thickness examination.
The analysis of parameters of SD-OCT consisted of macular retinal thickness (MRT), central foveal thickness (CFT), macular volume (MV), and retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thickness.
Our results indicated that thicknesses in the foveal and temporal (parafovea and perifovea) areas were significantly decreased in diabetic individuals with no visible sign of DR compared with normal controls.
Three circles around the foveal center were generated by the OCT program: the inner circle within 1 mm was defined as the foveal center; the circular area between 1 and 3 mm was the parafoveal region; and the area between 3 and 6 mm was the perifoveal region.
Central foveal thickness (CFT) and mean foveal volume (MFV) on OCT (SD 3D OCT-2000 Topcon(r)) was recorded at pre-operative, and 1st and 6th week post-operative follow-up.
20 SD OCT provides detailed insight into the foveal integrity of inner segment/outer segment (IS/OS) and external limiting membrane (ELM) along with other features of CSCR including hyper reflective dots and RPE changes that were found to have direct correlation with final visual outcome.
This work is a complete collection of our findings on the underlying mechanism involved in our foveal and peripheral vision for modelling the perception of the induced tilt in the Cafee Wall illusion.
Ophthalmic variables such as visual acuity, refractive error, foveal visual sensitivity, cup-disc ratio in percent, intraocular pressure, automated visual field mean deviation, and automated visual field pattern standard deviation were recorded by using VFA (Humphrey Visual Field Analyzer II 745-5935-4.1/4.1).
