On slit lamp examination, there was a paracentral lid margin notching of the left lower lid (possibly corresponding to the mentioned trauma), moderate blepharitis, and mild ciliary injection of conjunctiva.
In paracentral corneal ulcers visual acuity was as good as 6/60-6/36.
There were no sequelae such as metamorphopsia and persistent central or paracentral scotoma, which were reported in up to 59.5% of 74 affected eyes at 2-year follow-up in a study by Teoh et al.
Moreover, early glaucoma characteristic damage of the arch fibers of the retinal nerve usually results in paracentral scotoma or nasal step in the upper and the lower Bjerrum areas (5[degrees]-25[degrees]) or nasal peripheral areas.
Examination of the right eye revealed a paracentral 1.5 mm infiltrate with surrounding edema and trace anterior chamber cells.
Alleye is designed to detect and characterise central and paracentral metamorphopsia (visual distortions) in risk groups (persons from the age of 55) and in patients with macular conditions including age-related macular degeneration (AMD), diabetic macular edema (DME) and central retinal vein occlusion (CRVO).
[13] Furthermore, the research team found that there were regional connectivity abnormalities in the bilateral superior medial prefrontal lobe, left superior temporal gyrus(STG), left paracentral lobule, right precentral lobule, and right inferior parietal lobe of the AOS patients by utilizing the regional homogeneity (ReHo) analysis, proposing to use the combination of ReHo values in the medial prefrontal lobe, left superior temporal gyrus, and right inferior parietal lobe as biomarkers (sensitivity of 88.24%, specificity of 91.89% and accuracy of 90.14%) for AOS patients.
Figure 1 ([T.sub.2]-weighted sagittal image) shows left paracentral disc herniation, endplate degeneration and disc height loss at level [T.sub.7-8].
Central islands occur from a lens with excessive sagittal height leading to excessive central clearance; this creates a steep central elevation surrounded by a flatter paracentral area.
La medicion hecha por esos sistemas del area paracentral de la cornea tiene un diametro que puede variar entre los 2.00 mm y los 4.00 mm, dependiendo tanto de las caracteristicas del equipo, como de las caracteristicas de curvatura de cada cornea.
POAG patients were diagnosed by glaucoma specialist ophthalmologist and satisfied the following diagnostic criteria: (1) presence of progressive glaucomatous damage at the optic disk or retinal nerve fiber layer changes, such as narrowing of the neuroretinal rim, diffuse thinning of retinal nerve fibre layer, or localized defects; (2) presence of visual field defects which are typical of glaucoma such as nasal step defect, arcuate or paracentral scotomata, or generalized tunnel vision; (3) bilaterally open anterior chamber angles as examined by gonioscopy; and (4) adult onset.
