PURPOSE To evaluate agreement in keratometry readings and anterior and posterior elevation map measurements among the Galilei V4.01 (Ziemer), Orbscan IIz (Bausch & Lomb), and Corneal Map topographer (Costruzione Strumenti Oftalmici) systems. METHODS This prospective comparative study comprised 184 eyes of 92 consecutive refractive surgery candidates who(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate intrasubject asymmetry in central corneal thickness (CCT) among patients with primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG) as compared with that of normal subjects and to determine whether the eye with thinner cornea has more severe glaucomatous visual field damage. METHODS In this case-control study, CCT of both eyes was measured using an(More)
Glaucoma is a degenerative optic neuropathy characterized by retinal ganglion cell (RGC) loss and visual field defects. It is known that in some glaucoma patients, death of RGCs continues despite intraocular pressure (IOP) reduction. Neuroprotection in the field of glaucoma is defined as any treatment, independent of IOP reduction, which prevents RGC death.(More)
PURPOSE To determine whether adjunctive mitomycin C (MMC) or amniotic membrane transplantation (AMT) improve the outcomes of Ahmed glaucoma valve (AGV) implantation. METHODS This double-blind, stratified, 3-armed randomized clinical trial includes 75 eyes of 75 patients aged 7 to 75 years with refractory glaucoma. Eligible subjects underwent stratified(More)
PURPOSE We present an evaluation of corneal pachymetry measurements by Galilei dual Scheimpflug camera by comparing central corneal thickness measured by Galilei with Orbscan II and ultrasonic pachymetry. SETTING Ophthalmic Research Center, Shahid Beheshti University of Medical Sciences and Negah Eye Center, Tehran, Iran. MATERIALS AND METHODS Central(More)
PURPOSE To investigate biomechanical and ultrastructural corneal parameters and ocular biometrics in the affected eyes of patients with unilateral primary congenital glaucoma (PCG) as compared to unaffected fellow eyes and age-matched healthy controls. METHODS A total of 12 patients with treated unilateral PCG and 10 normal subjects were evaluated.(More)
PURPOSE To compare the efficacy and side effects of loteprednol versus fluorometholone after myopic photorefractive keratectomy (PRK). METHODS One hundred and twenty four eyes of 62 patients who underwent PRK were enrolled in this study. One eye of each subject was randomized to receive loteprednol 0.5% and the fellow eye was given fluorometholone 0.1%.(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the effect of intraoperative sub-Tenon injection of triamcinolone acetonide (TA) as an adjunct to Ahmed glaucoma valve (AGV) implantation. METHODS In this triple-blind randomized clinical trial, 104 eyes with refractory glaucoma were randomly assigned to conventional AGV (non-TA group) or AGV with adjunctive triamcinolone (TA group).(More)
PURPOSE To compare ocular biometric parameters using low-coherence interferometry among siblings affected with different degrees of primary angle closure (PAC). METHODS In this cross-sectional comparative study, a total of 170 eyes of 86 siblings from 47 families underwent low-coherence interferometry (LenStar 900; Haag-Streit, Koeniz, Switzerland) to(More)
