Appearance of Far Peripheral Retina in Normal Eyes by Ultra-widefield Fluorescein Angiography

2016-08-05 07:08:22 | BioPortfolio

Summary

PURPOSE: To characterize the appearance of the far peripheral retina of normal eyes using ultra-widefield fluorescein angiography (UWFA).

DESIGN: Prospective observational case series. METHODS: This study enrolled normal eyes with best corrected visual acuity ≥ 20/20, refractive error < 3.00D, and without visible retinal pathologic changes under a slit lamp-based condensing lens. The far peripheral retina was detected by UWFA. Ciliary body thickness (CBT) at 3 mm (CBT1) and 2 mm (CBT2) posterior to the scleral spur was measured by ultrasound biomicroscopy.

Description

PURPOSE: To characterize the appearance of the far peripheral retina of normal eyes using ultra-widefield fluorescein angiography (UWFA).

DESIGN: Prospective observational case series. METHODS: This study enrolled normal eyes with best corrected visual acuity ≥ 20/20, refractive error < 3.00D, and without visible retinal pathologic changes under a slit lamp-based condensing lens. Demographic and clinical data such as age, sex, and reasons for undergoing FA were collected. The far peripheral retina was detected by UWFA. The fundal fields obtained using the Heidelberg ultra-widefield lens in a single shot and in montage images were compared with those acquired using the Heidelberg conventional 55° lens. The signs at the peripheral retina detected by UWFA were described and grouped. Ciliary body thickness (CBT) at 3 mm (CBT1) and 2 mm (CBT2) posterior to the scleral spur was measured by ultrasound biomicroscopy.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Gases that irritate the eyes, throat, or skin. Severe lacrimation develops upon irritation of the eyes.

Partial or complete loss of vision in one half of the visual field(s) of one or both eyes. Subtypes include altitudinal hemianopsia, characterized by a visual defect above or below the horizontal meridian of the visual field. Homonymous hemianopsia refers to a visual defect that affects both eyes equally, and occurs either to the left or right of the midline of the visual field. Binasal hemianopsia consists of loss of vision in the nasal hemifields of both eyes. Bitemporal hemianopsia is the bilateral loss of vision in the temporal fields. Quadrantanopsia refers to loss of vision in one quarter of the visual field in one or both eyes.

Involuntary rhythmical movements of the eyes in the normal person. These can be naturally occurring as in end-position (end-point, end-stage, or deviational) nystagmus or induced by the optokinetic drum (NYSTAGMUS, OPTOKINETIC), caloric test, or a rotating chair.

A species of gram-negative, aerobic bacteria that is most frequently isolated from bovine eyes in cases of infectious keratoconjunctivitis (KERATOCONJUNCTIVITIS, INFECTIOUS), but also occurs in unaffected eyes and the nasal cavity of cattle.

A malformation of the nervous system caused by failure of the anterior neuropore to close. Infants are born with intact spinal cords, cerebellums, and brainstems, but lack formation of neural structures above this level. The skull is only partially formed but the eyes are usually normal. This condition may be associated with folate deficiency. Affected infants are only capable of primitive (brain stem) reflexes and usually do not survive for more than two weeks. (From Menkes, Textbook of Child Neurology, 5th ed, p247)
