Steeper Macular Curvature in Eyes With Non-Highly Myopic Retinitis Pigmentosa.

A posterior staphyloma has been reported to be present in some eyes with retinitis pigmentosa (RP), and the purpose of this study was to determine the macular curvature of non-highly myopic RP eyes.

Vitreo-macular interface disorders in retinitis pigmentosa.

To investigate the prevalence and progression of vitreo-macular interface disorders (VMID) phenotypes and their natural history in retinitis pigmentosa (RP).

Expanding the retinal phenotype of : from retinitis pigmentosa to a novel and singular macular dystrophy.

This study aimed to identify the underlying genetic cause(s) of inherited retinal dystrophy (IRD) in 12 families of Kuwaiti origin affected by macular dystrophy and four Spanish patients affected by r...

Visual Cortical Plasticity in Retinitis Pigmentosa.

Retinitis pigmentosa is a family of genetic diseases inducing progressive photoreceptor degeneration. There is no cure for retinitis pigmentosa, but prospective therapeutic strategies are aimed at res...

Intravitreal Dexamethasone Implant in Retinitis Pigmentosa-related Macular Edema- a Retrospective Study

Purpose: Cystoid macular edema (CME) in retinitis pigmentosa (RP) has been managed in several ways with little success. The aim of our study was to report the use of intravitreal dexametha...

Study of Oral Minocycline in Treating Bilateral Cystoid Macular Edema Associated With Retinitis Pigmentosa

Background: - Some people with retinitis pigmentosa (RP) have macular edema (swelling) in the central retina. This can cause decreased central vision. The cause of macular edema is unknow...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Autosomal recessive hereditary disorders characterized by congenital SENSORINEURAL HEARING LOSS and RETINITIS PIGMENTOSA. Genetically and symptomatically heterogeneous, clinical classes include type I, type II, and type III. Their severity, age of onset of retinitis pigmentosa and the degree of vestibular dysfunction are variable.

Vision considered to be inferior to normal vision as represented by accepted standards of acuity, field of vision, or motility. Low vision generally refers to visual disorders that are caused by diseases that cannot be corrected by refraction (e.g., MACULAR DEGENERATION; RETINITIS PIGMENTOSA; DIABETIC RETINOPATHY, etc.).

Fluid accumulation in the outer layer of the MACULA LUTEA that results from intraocular or systemic insults. It may develop in a diffuse pattern where the macula appears thickened or it may acquire the characteristic petaloid appearance referred to as cystoid macular edema. Although macular edema may be associated with various underlying conditions, it is most commonly seen following intraocular surgery, venous occlusive disease, DIABETIC RETINOPATHY, and posterior segment inflammatory disease. (From Survey of Ophthalmology 2004; 49(5) 470-90)

Hereditary, progressive degeneration of the neuroepithelium of the retina characterized by night blindness and progressive contraction of the visual field.

Inflammation of the RETINA. It is rarely limited to the retina, but is commonly associated with diseases of the choroid (CHORIORETINITIS) and of the OPTIC DISK (neuroretinitis).
