  • Re:The role of enhanced depth imaging optical coherence tomography in chronic Vogt-Koyanagi-Harada disease
    Soon-Phaik Chee

    Dear Editor,

    We thank Uzun and Pehlivan for their interest in our article1 and their comments. They raise various factors that are potential confounders of subfoveal choroidal thickness measurements. As our study was a retrospective review of paired samples of enhanced depth imaging optical coherence tomography (EDI-OCT) and indocyanine green angiography (ICGA) in the right eye of patients with chronic Vogt-Koya...

    Tae Gon Lee

    Dear Editor,

    We would like to thank Dr. Uzun and Dr. Pehlivan for showing interest in our study.[1] It is well-known that various factors may influence choroidal thickness. In our study,[1] there was no significant difference in the age, sex, spherical equivalents, and incidence of diabetes mellitus and hypertension between the ranibizumab and aflibercept groups. As mentioned, the limitation of our retrospective...

  • The role of enhanced depth imaging optical coherence tomography in chronic Vogt-Koyanagi-Harada disease
    Salih Uzun

    Dear Editor, We have read and reviewed the article entitled "The role of enhanced depth imaging optical coherence tomography in chronic Vogt-Koyanagi-Harada disease''which was written by Jap and Chee with great interest [1]. The authors evaluated 52 patients with chronic Vogt-Koyanagi-Harada (VKH) disease using indocyanine green angiograms (ICGAs) and optical coherence tomography (OCT). They discovered that the subfoveal...

  • Re:Comment on: Changes observed in diabetic retinopathy: eight-year follow-up of a Spanish population
    Pedro Romero-Aroca

    Response to E-letter. Thank very much for reading our article. It is true that oral insulin analogues can lead to increased growth hormone, increasing its effect over diabetic retinopathy, but previously it should exist a blood-retina barrier (BRB), despite in patients with preexisting diabetic retinopathy the BRB rupture exist in some amount. It is possible that oral insulin analogues can affect the diabetic retinopathy...

  • Predictive value of QFT-G alone in cases of presumed ocular tuberculosis
    Rohan Chawla

    Dear Editor,

    We read with interest the article titled "Predictive factors for treatment failure in patients with presumed ocular tuberculosis in an area of low endemic prevalence" by Agarwal et al published in Br J Ophthalmol 2016;100:348-355.

    We wanted to point out few things regarding the article - The diagnosis of ocular tuberculosis was presumptive in most cases. The authors have used clinical guide...
