  1. 1. Visual Impairment and Vision-Related Quality of Life in Glaucoma

    University dissertation from Ophthalmology

    Author : Dorothea Peters; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2015]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : This thesis addresses the impact of glaucoma on the patients’ vision from both a measurement based and a functionally based perspective. The risk of visual disability is probably the most important question for a newly diagnosed glaucoma patient and maintaining vision-related quality of life (VRQOL) has become the ultimate goal of glaucoma treatment.

  2. 2. Glaucoma Characteristics and Risk Factors - Results from Malmö Eye Survey

    University dissertation from Department of Ophthalmology, Lund University

    Author : Kirsti Grødum; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2004]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Ophtalmology; vascular disease; Oftalmologi; myopia; optic disc hemorrhages; mortality; refraction; glaucoma; population screening;

    Abstract : This thesis is based on data from a large glaucoma screening, comprising 32, 918 elderly citizens of Malmö and data from retrospective analysis of glaucoma patients’ charts from the Eye Department of Malmö University Hospital. The definition of glaucoma was based on reproducible visual field defects and/or glaucomatous optic nerve head damage in both groups. READ MORE

  3. 3. Clinical and Experimental Approach to the Benefits and Risks of Laser Treatment for Diabetic Macular Edema

    University dissertation from Ophthalmology, Lund University

    Author : Poya T-Khani; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2016]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; laser treatment; Diabetic macular edema; retinal pigment epithelium; ARPE-19; microarray; proteomics;

    Abstract : Diabetic retinopathy is an ophthalmic complication of diabetes that currently affects 93 million people worldwide. Diabetic macular edema is a subtype of diabetic retinopathy that is characterized by leaking blood vessels in the central part of the retina, and it is a major cause of vision loss in individuals with diabetes.

  4. 4. Improved computerized perimetric threshold strategies

    University dissertation from Department of Ophthalmology, Lund University

    Author : Boel Bengtsson; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [1999]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; normal limits; probability maps; test time; clinical testing; test strategies. glaucoma; test algorithms; false positive answers; Visual field testing; computerized perimetry; Ophtalmology; Oftalmologi;

    Abstract : Perimetric threshold examination is the most important method for diagnosing and monitoring patients with glaucoma. Such examination, however, is time-consuming and often difficult for the elderly patients in whom glaucoma is prevalent. Shorter test strategies have been proposed, but unfortunately also with lower test quality. READ MORE

  5. 5. Computerised Three-Dimensional Analysis of Optic Nerve Head Topography in Normal and Glaucomatous Eyes

    University dissertation from Department of Ophthalmology, Lund University

    Author : Kjell Gunnar Gundersen; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [1999]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; minimal rim width; ranked segment distribution; sector analysis; neuroretinal rim; global parameters; localised changes; computerised analysis; raster tomography; Optic nerve head topography; scanning laser tomography; Ophtalmology; Oftalmologi;

    Abstract : Evaluation of the optic nerve head topography is one of the most important methods to diagnose and monitor patients with glaucoma. Until recently, optic nerve head topography has most often been judged by either ophthalmoscopy or from optic disc photographs. READ MORE
