Retinal Detachment in Knobloch Syndrome

ABSTRACT Objective: The study aims to study retinal detachment in Knobloch syndrome. Knobloch syndrome is a rare genetic disease affects patients in an autosomal recessive fashion. It is characterized by high myopia, vitreoretinopathy, lens abnormality and macular atrophy. Study Design: Retrospective study, case series study. Methods: Consecutive patients who were diagnosed to have Knobloch syndrome with retinal detachment between 2013 and...

The Role of Antioxidants in the Course of Retinopathy of Prematurity

ABSTRACT Objective: Seen in premature and low-birth-weight infants, retinopathy of the prematurity (ROP) is a proliferative vasculopathy which may result in severe visual losses at the advanced stages. It is suggested that its development be amenable to several factors, one of them being the oxygen (O2) and its metabolites. For this purpose, this study was conducted to investigate the place of coenzyme Q10 and vitamin E combination (Coqun),...
