BACKGROUND The opacification of hydrophilic intraocular lenses (IOLs) is a very rare complication in terms of absolute numbers. We report on the analyses of opacified Euromaxx ALI313Y and ALI313 IOLs (Argonoptics, Germany) using light and scanning electron microscopy, X-ray spectroscopy and optical bench analysis. METHODS Opacified Euromaxx ALI313Y and(More)
PURPOSE To determine intraocular pharmacokinetics of aflibercept and VEGF-A in patients with neovascular age-related macular degeneration (nAMD) during a treatment period of 6 months. METHODS Seven nonvitrectomized patients diagnosed with macular edema secondary to nAMD undergoing intravitreal injections (IVI) of aflibercept. Patients were treatment naïve(More)
Examination of the visual field using static automated perimetry (SAP) is the method of choice for the detection of functional damage secondary to glaucoma. However, with SAP early visual field defects might be missed even if there is already visible damage of the retinal nerve fibre. The microperimetry or beter fundus perimetry provides a detailed(More)
The visual functional diagnostics for patients with advanced glaucomatous optic neuropathy are subject to challenge. Reduced visual acuity, instable fixation and extensive scotomata frequently lead to incorrect results within the central 30° or 24° field. Static automatic perimetry (SAP) in particular is often hampered by extended examination time and(More)
PURPOSE Penetrating keratoplasty has been the mainstay for the treatment of blindness and is the most common form of tissue transplantation worldwide. Due to significant rates of rejection, treatment of immunological transplant reactions is of wide interest. Recently in a mouse model, the overexpression of indoeleamine 2,3 dioxigenase (IDO) was led to an(More)
Alzheimer's dementia can readily be diagnosed by the general practitioner on the basis of the anamnestic data provided by the patient's relatives and quantified by MMST and DemTect. The diagnosis should be confirmed by a neurologist. EEG and mapping methods reveal slowing of alpha activity, increased theta activity and reduced reactivity reflecting the(More)
