  • 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...

  • 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: Eye hazards of laser 'pointers' in perspective
    Fahd Quhill
    Dear Editor I would like to thank the authors for their recent editorial "Eye hazards of laser 'pointers' in perspective" and that I agree and support the majority of points raised within the article. However I would like to correct one assertion made regarding the pilot injury reported by my team, that was published as a case report in January 2016. I would like to clarify some facts; the laser illumination incident was witnesse...
