Besides, Bayoudh recalled that the ONH
has started campaigns against olive pests as part of preparations for this season, stating that 2 million seedlings of olive trees have been treated so far.
"Taking a life of its own, to date ONH
has trained 700 teachers, 1,000 VEC leaders, and dramatically increased the success rate of students in matriculation exams from just 5 per cent in 1996 to 75 per cent by 2015," the board of trustees said in a statement.
(8) Hence, the common theme in myopia (high myopia in particular) and glaucoma might be related to the blood circulation of the retina and ONH
rather than structural features of the eye.
 reported a reduced disc perfusion in a group of patients with early glaucoma and a link between ONH
vessel density and visual field pattern standard deviation (PSD) using a custom swept-source OCT device.
All patients underwent complete ophthalmological examination including best corrected visual acuity (BCVA), Goldmann applanation tonometry, slit lamp biomicroscopy of the anterior eye segment, gonioscopy, binocular indirect slit lamp funduscopy for evaluation of ONH
after 0.5% tropicamide mydriasis, visual field (VF) testing, and OCT.
However, the mechanism of autoregulation in the ONH
blood flow has not been clarified in detail.
The purpose of the present study was thus to clarify whether the incidence of MetS and the overlap of MetS components are affecting the ocular circulation in the ONH
and choroid shown by the LSFG, while comparing them with IMT and left ventricular diastolic function.
The average flow indexes of four optic disc layers were 0.171 [+ or -] 0.009 for the ONH
layer, 0.015 [+ or -] 0.004 for the vitreous layer, 0.052 [+ or -] 0.009 for the RPC layer, and 0.167 [+ or -] 0.011 for the choroid layer.
The RNFL thickness and ONH
parameters between POAG and PACG were determined using independent t-tests.
Recently, we have reported that laser speckle flowgraphy (LSFG) and color Doppler imaging can be used to assess the effects of topical medications or acupuncture on OBF, including circulation in the optic nerve head (ONH
) and retrobulbar space [14-16].
The Nonmyd WX3D displays images of the ONH
and macula in 3D, providing superior stereo images to support diagnosis of sight-threatening conditions such as glaucoma.
LOS ANGELES, Calif., October 22, 2013 -- A study performed here found no evidence that stem cell therapy improves vision for children with optic nerve hypoplasia (ONH
