PURPOSE To compare intraocular pressure (IOP) measurements of the Ocular Blood Flow (OBF) pneumotonometer, Goldmann applanation tonometer, and Tono-Pen in eyes with normal corneas of various thicknesses. METHODS IOP was measured with an OBF pneumotonometer, Tono-Pen and Goldmann applanation tonometer in random order in 181 eyes with normal corneas.(More)
PURPOSE Antimicrobial peptides are the eukaryotic analogues of antibiotics. In addition to their antimicrobial activity, these peptides can signal to host cells and are therefore intermediaries between the innate and adaptive immune systems. Results in a prior study showed that beta-defensins-1 and -2 are made by ocular surface epithelial cells. In the(More)
Glaucoma drainage surgery in diabetic patients is associated with a relatively poor prognosis due to increased scarring at the site of surgery, secondary to increased proliferation of human Tenon's capsule fibroblasts (hTCF). This is in marked contrast to diabetic wound healing at other sites, where it is generally impaired. The aim of this study was to(More)
PURPOSE To establish the repeatability of ocular blood flow (OBF) pneumotonometry and its agreement with Goldmann tonometry. DESIGN Instrument evaluation study. PARTICIPANTS Ten female healthcare professionals. METHODS Intraocular pressure (IOP) was measured by one experienced ophthalmologist in both eyes of 10 healthy female subjects on 10 different(More)
PURPOSE To determine whether measurement of intraocular pressure (IOP) preoperatively or in the early postoperative period is an accurate predictor of raised IOP 24 hours after cataract surgery. SETTING Department of Ophthalmology, Queen's Medical Centre, Nottingham, United Kingdom. METHODS This prospective study comprised 101 eyes of 101 patients(More)
A random, observer blind, crossover design of study was undertaken in twelve normal male volunteers. Both propranolol (40 mg) and atenolol (50 mg) in single dose oral administration had significantly reduced the heart rate, systolic blood pressure and the value for double product under resting and postexercise conditions compared to the corresponding(More)
