The purpose of these studies in part was to determine the bacterial flora of the eyelids and conjunctiva and also to determine whether any specific organisms were responsible for postopera­ tive infections. Dunnington and Khorazo show a(More)
Two patients developed Mooren's ulcer following cataract extraction. The first case was complicated by ocular trauma 8 years prior to surgery and by vitreous loss at the time of surgery. The second patient underwent cataract extraction without complication. Surgical trauma may have been the inciting factor in the development of these ulcers. Both patients(More)
A patient with recurrent hyphema following blunt trauma to the left eye was found to have an angle recession with a laceration of the trabecular meshwork and Schlemm canal. Active bleeding from the Schlemm canal proved to be the cause of the recurrent hyphema. Repeated trials of bed rest and bilateral eye patching provided only temporary control of the(More)
Electroretinographic (ERG) studies were performed in 22 normal control newborns and 28 neonates who had had phototherapy during the first few days of life. Mean age at ERG testing was 16.8 +/- 2.9 days in the phototherapy group and 16.4 +/- 3.7 days in the control group. Results of routine funduscopy were normal in both groups. Amplitudes of a and b waves(More)
Nine patients had white-without-pressure retinal lesions. These lesions were seen in areas of vitreoretinal adhesions. The configuration and location of these lesions changed over variable periods of time. The cause of this pecular migration is unknown, but may be related to separation and re-creation of vitreoretinal adhesions. The migratory nature of(More)
