1) Non-specific foveal granularity.
2) Circumscribed RPE atrophy and loss of the choriocapillaris at the macula.
3) Slowly expanding geographic atrophy with prominence of large choroidal vessels .
Prophylactic oral acyclovir use after PK for HSV keratitis is associated with decreased episodes of rejection and improved graft survival.
Both patients demonstrated dramatic short-term response in terms of intraocular pressure reduction and regression of neovascularization.
In patients with open-angle glaucoma, the amount of increase in IOP caused by pharmacological pupillary dilatation is related to the likelihood of future progression of glaucoma.
Dr. Tetz says he believes canaloplasty is a good choice as a replacement for trabeculectomy. “Overall, the pressure results of viscocanalostomy are comparable to those of trabeculectomy without mitomycin,” says Dr. Tetz, “but with a much lower risk of postoperative complications and much less intense care required immediately postop. So far, the results of canaloplasty are even better.”

These results suggest that a single intravitreal injection of bevacizumab is well tolerated and is associated with short-term improvement in VA and decreased OCT retinal thickness in a considerable proportion of patients with uveitic CME resistant to conventional therapy. Further evaluation of intravitreal bevacizumab for uveitic CME in controlled randomized studies is warranted.
