  • Re:Comment on: Morphological features in anterior scleral inflammation using swept-source optical coherence tomography with multiple B-scan averaging
    Akihito Uji

    Dear Editor:

    We thank Dr. Ebneter for his interest in our article.1 He pointed out that we included contralateral eyes of unilateral diseased eyes as control eyes and both eyes of bilateral affected eyes were included as diseased eyes. Accordingly, we performed additional analyses. We excluded contralateral eyes from control eyes and included only right eyes of bilateral affected eyes as diseased eyes. As a resul...

  • Re:Outcomes of intravitreal anti-VEGF therapy in eyes with both neovascular age-related macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy
    Giuseppe Querques

    We thank Drs Calugaru M. and Calugaru D. for their interest in our article,1 and we welcome this opportunity to address their concerns. The purpose of our study was to investigate the outcomes of intravitreal antivascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) therapy in eyes with both neovascular age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and diabetic retinopathy (DR) as higher levels of VEGF due to concomitant DR in eyes with a...

  • Comment on: Morphological features in anterior scleral inflammation using swept-source optical coherence tomography with multiple B-scan averaging.
    Andreas Ebneter

    Dear Editor,

    I read with interest the article by Kuroda et al.[1] The authors explored new possibilities of anterior segment imaging using a posterior segment swept-source optical coherence tomography device without noteworthy modifications. Interestingly, it was possible to obtain high- resolution images of the conjunctiva, episclera, and the sclera near the limbus that seemingly allow unequivocal identificati...

    Ronald P. Danis

    Dear Editor, We thank Drs Gupta and Ram for their interest in our recent paper on the anatomical effects of dexamethasone intravitreal implant (DEX implant) in eyes with diabetic macular oedema [1] and appreciate the opportunity to respond to their comments. Their letter highlights various patient- and treatment-related factors that potentially might have influenced the retinal findings described in our analysis. We pro...
