  • 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...

  • Re:Comment on: Anatomical effects of dexamethasone intravitreal implant in diabetic macular oedema: a pooled analysis of 3-year phase III trials
    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...

  • Re:Diurnal variations in luminal and stromal areas of choroid in normal eyes
    Takamasa Kinoshita

    Dear Editor,

    We thank Drs. Uzun and Pehlivan for their interest and comments to our article.[1] We compared and correlated the central choroidal thickness to the different choridal parameters at different times between 9:00 h and 18:00 h. We compared the findings between 09:00 h and 12:00 h, 09:00 h and 15:00 h, 09:00 h and 18:00 h, 12:00 h and 15:00 h, 12:00 h and 18:00 h, and 15:00 h and 18:00 h. There were...

  • Diurnal variations in luminal and stromal areas of choroid in normal eyes
    Salih Uzun

    Dear Editor, We have read and reviewed the article entitled as "Diurnal variations in luminal and stromal areas of choroid in normal eyes'' by Kinoshita et al. with great interest [1]. The authors analyzed systemic blood pressure, heart rate, intraocular pressure, central choroidal thickness (CCT), total cross-sectional choroidal area, the luminal areas, stromal areas and the ratio of luminal area to total choroidal area...

  • Re:Comment on: Choroidal structure in eyes with drusen and reticular pseudodrusen determined by binarisation of optical coherence tomographic images
    Giuseppe Querques

    Dear Editor We thank Drs Uzun and Pehlivan for their interest in our article,1 and we welcome this opportunity to address their concerns. As pointed out, there are several factors that may induce fluctuation of choroidal thickness such as the diurnal effect, systemic diseases (endocrine, cardiovascular, rheumatologic, and inflammatory), intraocular pressure, refractive status, systemic blood pressure, body mass index, a...

  • Comment on: Predicting outcomes to anti-vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) therapy in diabetic macular oedema: a review of the literature
    Salih Uzun

    Dear Editor, We read and reviewed the article entitled as "Predicting outcomes to anti- vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) therapy in diabetic macular oedema: a review of the literature'' by Ashraf et al. with great interest [1]. In that comprehensive study, the authors reviewed the studies that investigated demographic, clinical, optical coherence tomography (OCT), and fluorescein angiography results that could p...

    Dear Editor, We have read and reviewed the article entitled as "Choroidal structure in eyes with drusen and reticular pseudodrusen determined by binarisation of optical coherence tomographic images" by Corvi et al. with great interest [1]. The authors compared luminal and stromal areas of the choroid in eyes with drusen and reticular pseudodrusen (RPD), and investigated their changes over 24 months using optical coherenc...
