Forty-nine patients were included in a controlled clinical trial comparing the effect of topical non-steroid versus potent steroid preparation in acute anterior non-granulomatous uveitis. Twenty-five patients were randomized to 1% Indometacin and 24 patients to 0.1% Dexametason treatment 6 times a day. There was no difference between the two groups(More)
The effect of sodium hyaluronate eye drops in the treatment of severe keratoconjunctivitis sicca (KCS) was evaluated in a double masked crossover trial, comparing the effect of a 0.1% solution, a 0.2% solution and placebo in 20 patients. We found significantly decreased rose bengal staining and increased break-up time following 0.2% treatment compared to(More)
In a controlled prospective trial the peroperative use of sodium hyaluronate and methylcellulose (2%) was compared. Two hundred and fifteen patients received sodium hyaluronate and 189 methylcellulose during extracapsular cataract extraction. We found no significant difference in postoperative anterior chamber inflammation, intraocular pressure, frequency(More)
Lysozyme (ly) concentration in tears was measured the day before and the days following intracapsular cataract extraction in 25 patients. A median ly concentration of 1.30 mg/ml was found pre-operatively. On the first post-operative day a significant drop in the median ly concentration was observed (0.58 mg/ml). Thereafter a gradual rise towards(More)
The concentrations of serum albumin (SA) in the conjunctival fluid were measured in 25 patients before surgery and in the post-operative period following cataract extraction. We found a significant increase in mean tear fluid SA concentration on the first post-operative day. The SA concentration remained high during the first 3 pre-operative levels. No(More)
Twenty-five patients operated for cataract were examined for secretory immunoglobulin A (sIgA) content of tears by an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay technique. The patients were examined before operation and throughout the post-operative period. The pre-operative level was 795 micrograms/ml, significantly dropping on the first post-operative day to 461(More)
