Long-term type 1 neovascularization (NV) evolution shows different outcomes: stabilization, chronicity, fibrosis, atrophy, hemorrhages, or retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) tears. We do not know the reason why some NVs become stable, bringing to a standstill its evolution and activity indicators. Similarly, it is currently unknown why some NVs gener...

Epstein Barr Virus (EBV) related uveitis is a rare form of ocular inflammatory condition caused by the virus which belongs to the herpes group of viruses. EBV has been associated with a number of systemic malignancies such as nasopharyngeal carcinoma. It can lead to protean manifestations in the eye ranging from mild conjunctivitis to vision-threat...

PURPOSE. To report morphologic features of idiopathic macular telangiectasia (MacTel) type 2 by means of optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) and to compare these findings to fundus fluorescein angiography (FFA), fundus autofluorescence (FAF), confocal blue reflectance (CBR), and spectral-domain OCT (SD-OCT). In addition, foveal vessel d...

This retrospective quality control study aimed at comparing resolution in patients treated with intravitreal ocriplasmin (IVO) using two injection techniques, classical injection procedure (unguided) and targeted injection using a surgical microscope with a 30-gauge 1-inch needle (guided) for the treatment of focal VMT without macular hole. The two...

Optovue AngioVue system technology for optical coherence tomography (OCT) angiography is based on the AngioVue Imaging System (Optovue, Inc., Freemont, CA), using split-spectrum amplitude-decorrelation angiography (SSADA) algorithm. This algorithm was developed to minimize scanning time. It detects motion in blood vessel lumen by measuring the vari...

In our previous studies on vascular corrosion casts of monkey posterior retina we were able to demonstrate the following points: 1) Capillaries have a laminar distribution. Most vitreal ones are favoured as they are more directly vascularized by side branching arterioles; 2) around the foveal avascular zone, capillaries show a round course and like...
