Screening was done and subjects were taken to tertiary eye care centers for further evaluation. Subjects with macular hole were included and visual functions along with slit lamp evaluation and fundus evaluation were performed. Colour Vision was assessed with PV 16 colour vision Test. Data was analyzed using SPSS software version 20 and Microsoft Office Excel version 10.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>&nbsp;RESULTS:</strong></p> <p>58 subjects were included in the study. Out of that 71 % were males and 29% were Females. Colour vision was assessed and it is found that only 16 % of subjects were having normal colour vision while 62 % of subjects were having Mild Tritanopia and 22% of subjects will develop Moderate Tritanopia.</p> <p><strong>CONCLUSION:</strong></p> <p>Mild to Moderate Tritanopia develops in cases of Macular hole.</p> PARTHA HARADHAN CHOWDHURY, BRINDA HAREN SHAH, NRIPESH TIWARI Copyright (c) 2019 EPH - International Journal of Medical and Health Science (ISSN: 2456 - 6063) http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/4.0 https://ephjournal.com/index.php/mhs/article/view/1271 Sat, 11 May 2019 08:51:32 +0000 MR EFFECT OF PSYCHOLOGICAL IMPLICATIONS ON LIFE STYLE FOR DIFFERENT AMOUNT OF DEVIATION FOR EXOTROPIA https://ephjournal.com/index.php/mhs/article/view/1272 <p><strong>Purpose: </strong>The aim of the present study is to compare the effect of Psychological Implications in different amount of deviations in Exotropia.</p> <p><strong>Methods: </strong>Prospective, Cross sectional and observational study was performed at tertiary eye care centers. Subjects with Ocular deviation between 10 to 40 prism diopters, Corrected distance Visual Acuity should be greater than 6/18 and Age should be between 10 to 40 years of age were included in the study. Questionnaire was prepared on the effect of Psychological Implications on the Life style in presence of Ocular deviation. Response score of the subjects were noted and Mean score of the responses were compared in different amounts of deviation. Data was analyzed using SPSS software version 20.</p> <p><strong>Results: </strong>50 subjects were included in the study. Out of that, 28 subjects were included in 11-20 age group, 18 subjects in 21-30 and 4 subjects were in the age group of 31-40 years. 54% subjects were Females and 46% were Males. Comparison of mean score of Questions on Psychological Implications for different amount of deviation for Exotropia was analyzed and it shows that with increasing amount of Ocular deviation, Psychological Implications hampers more.</p> <p><strong>Conclusions:</strong></p> <p>In the ocular deviation of Exotropia, as the amount of ocular deviation increases, Psychological Implications hampers proportionately.</p> PARTHA HARADHAN CHOWDHURY, BRINDA HAREN SHAH, NRIPESH TIWARI Copyright (c) 2019 EPH - International Journal of Medical and Health Science (ISSN: 2456 - 6063) http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/4.0 https://ephjournal.com/index.php/mhs/article/view/1272 Sat, 11 May 2019 08:56:09 +0000 ASSESSMENT OF SPATIO-TEMPORAL AND CONTEXTUAL MEMORY IN PATIENTS WITH STROKE. https://ephjournal.com/index.php/mhs/article/view/1274 <p><strong>Background:</strong> This study aimed to assess eventual disturbances of spatio-temporal end contextual memory in patient with stroke in order to better grasp these patient’s attitudes so as to track their neuropsychological accompaniments. <br><strong>Method:</strong> fifty-five (55) patients with stroke, after having traveled a loop, had to recognize among 27 pictures of the CHU of Cocody (Cote d’Ivoire) those belonging to the previously traveled path in the company of the experimenter. The pictures were presented to the participants. The participants had to say if "yes" or "no" the pictures presented belongs to the previously traveled path in the company of the experimenter. Then the photographs are presented by pair to the subject who is required to give the exact order of the photographs as seen on the route traveled.<br><strong>Results:</strong> When recognizing pictures with order effect, we found a significant difference (F (46) = 12.45, p = 0.0010) between the number of exact responses given by patients with stroke and that given by healthy controls subjects.<br><strong>Conclusion:</strong> patients with stroke were deficient in establishing the chronological order of succession of views.</p> Francois BAKOU Niangoran, ATAYI E. , ADOU Kobenan Fieni, BA A.

Mobile phones emit radiations and RF-EMF is considered as a Group 2B (carcinogen) and the survey suggests that 10-year latency period is practically enough for the development of tumors. The studies from various groups involve cases of 35487 and controls about 82609. The results for meta- analysis of glioma gave an odd ratio OR=1.10, 95% CI=0.79-1.54 and for the latency period ≥10 years, OR=1.38, 95% CI=0.70-2.73. The highest risk was found in the age group below 20 years from the Hardell Group.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> Prisilla Jayanthi, Iyyanki V Murali Krishna Copyright (c) 2019 EPH - International Journal of Medical and Health Science (ISSN: 2456 - 6063) http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/4.0 https://ephjournal.com/index.php/mhs/article/view/1051 Sat, 11 May 2019 09:09:33 +0000
