Comparison of Complement Factors and Genetic Polymorphisms of AMD Between Patients With Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE) With and Without Retinal "Pseudo-drusen-like" Deposits: Case-control Study (PL-AMD)

The rationale of this research is to determine if patients with lupus and presenting retinal "pseudo-drusen-like" deposits have genetic and complement-related similarities with AMD patients. Based on the results obtained, this study could lead to future research that could better target the treatment of patients with lupus or patients with ...

Time to Treatment Utilizing a Tele-Retinal Referral System for Wet Age Related Macular Degeneration and Diabetic Macular Edema: A Pilot Study

Within the province of Ontario, there are a limited number of retinal specialists for a large and geographically diverse population of 13.5 million people in 2012. Because the majority of these specialists are located in larger urban centers, many rural patients have difficulty travelling the significant distance from their communities ...

Phase N/A

The Effects of Regular Eye-training With a Mobile Device on Adult Patients With AMD

In the presented study a training-therapy in patients with dry AMD war evaluated. The main focus was on remote visibility and thus better handling of daily activities. Therapy with high-contrast administration is used for amblyopia in childhood. Furthermore, simulation therapy is used in hemianopsia in the adult age, in which ...

Phase N/A

Prevalence of Age Related Macular Degeneration (ARMD) in Parkinson's Patients and Assesment of the Role of L-DOPA

Age related macular degeneration (ARMD) is a major and irreversible cause of blindness among the elderly. The sub-retinal space, located between the retinal pigmentary epithelium (RPE) and the external segments of the retinal photoreceptors, plays a crucial role in this pathology. A recent epidemiologic study in the US, has shown ...

Phase N/A

Enhancing the Lucentis (Ranibizumab) Management of Choroidal Neovascular Membranes With Hyperspectral Imaging

Observational trial of patients with choroidal neovascular membranes treated with Lucentis. Exploration and validation of a new form of retinal imaging called hyperspectral imaging. Inclusion: Patients meet eligibility criteria other than FFA diagnosis and who are diagnosed with suspected exudative CNV on the OCT. (n=100 eyes) Procedure: Monthly doses of ...

Phase N/A

Patient's Feelings After Receiving a Diagnosis of Age-related Macular Degeneration

Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is the leading cause of blindness in the elderly population of the industrialized world. AMD is a progressive degenerative disease affecting the central area of the retina, responsible for distinct vision. Vision loss arises from aberrant new vessel growth which causes the accumulation of blood or ...

Phase N/A

Directional Spread in Geographic Atrophy

Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is the leading cause of irreversible blindness in industrial countries. In the late stages of the disease, neovascular changes or the development of geographic atrophy (GA) may induce severe visual loss. GA is characterized by the development of areas of outer retinal atrophy with continuous spread ...

Phase N/A

Ocular Imaging Study Using Advanced OCT

The purpose of this study is to evaluate this AngioScan angiography software on patients with various retinal vascular disorders. The advanced OCT instrument is an FDA approved clinically used camera, but the AngioScan angiography software is not FDA approved. Investigators would like to know if this imaging device and software ...

Phase N/A

Hong Kong Spinocerebellar Ataxias Registry

All the members from Hong Kong SCA association will be invited and discuss the study with them. After obtaining the informed consent, their genotypes will be determined and collect clinical information. Some of the participant will have clear genotyping via Department of Health. Participants with a genetic confirmation of SCA1, ...

Phase N/A

Evaluate the Quality of Life of Patients With AMD

Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is a major cause of deep visual acuity loss. Because of progressive deterioration of the macula, patients with AMD complain about progressive visual problems that can impair their quality of life in the physical, mental and social domains. The principal objective principal of this study is ...
