It is well accepted that the accommodation system is characterized by steady-state errors in focus. The purpose of this study was to correlate these errors with changes in ocular wavefront aberration and corresponding image quality when accommodating. A wavefront analyzing system, the Complete Ophthalmic Analysis System (COAS), was used in conjunction with(More)
BACKGROUND Recently, instruments for the measurement of wavefront aberration in the living human eye have been widely available for clinical applications. Despite the extensive background experience on wavefront sensing for research purposes, the information derived from such instrumentation in a clinical setting should not be considered a priori precise.(More)
PURPOSE Individual cones were imaged in the living human eye with the Rochester adaptive optics ophthalmoscope. In all eyes, there were large differences in the reflectance of different cones, even when all the photopigment was bleached. To help understand what produces this spatial variation, the investigators explored whether it is a static or a dynamic(More)
Local minima or notches in the defocused contrast sensitivity function (CSF) have been linked to the aberrations of the eye. We use theoretical modeling of the effects of the aberrations to show these notches can be orientation-selective due to the effects of aberration terms such as coma and trefoil. Notches that changed with orientation were observed in(More)
PURPOSE To report the development of posterior linear stromal haze after simultaneous photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) followed by corneal collagen cross-linking (CXL). METHODS Combined simultaneous customized PRK followed by corneal collagen cross-linking was performed in 23 patients (28 eyes) with keratoconus. Corneas were examined biomicroscopically(More)
PURPOSE To study the long-term results of photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) and laser in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) in low to moderate myopic corrections using the Pulzar Z1 system (CustomVis), a 213 nm wavelength solid-state laser. SETTING University refractive surgery center. METHODS This prospective noncomparative case series comprised 20 patients(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate whether photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) for moderate myopia using a solid-state laser with a wavelength of 213 nm alters the corneal endothelial cell density. SETTING University refractive surgery center. METHODS The corneal endothelium was analyzed preoperatively and 1, 6, and 12 months postoperatively using corneal confocal(More)
PURPOSE Previous studies have evaluated macular retinal thickness (RT) and nerve fiber layer thickness (RNFLT) changes in early glaucoma using elaborate optical coherence tomography (OCT) scanning protocols. MATERIALS AND METHODS This study examines RT and RNFLT using standard scanning protocols in early glaucoma. In this prospective, nonrandomized case(More)
PURPOSE To present a case of nine- year bilateral Intacs (Addition Technology, Inc, Fremont, California, USA) implantation for early stage keratoconus. METHODS A 25-year-old male underwent bilateral Intacs implantation for the management of keratoconus and hardcontact-lens intolerance (stage 1) in 1999. RESULTS Nine years postoperatively, spherical(More)
PURPOSE To study the long-term efficacy, safety, and stability of laser in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) after unintentional ultrathin flap creation less than 80 mum. SETTING University refractive surgery center. METHODS This retrospective case series comprised 25 patients (33 eyes) who had LASIK after flap creation less than 80 mum with the Moria M2(More)
