PURPOSE To evaluate the efficacy and safety of using sodium hyaluronate 0.1% and carboxymethylcellulose 0.5% artificial tears for ocular discomfort and tear-film stability in eyes after cataract surgery. SETTING Twenty ophthalmic centers in Italy. DESIGN Prospective randomized case series. METHODS This study enrolled patients scheduled for unilateral(More)
The purpose was to investigate the early modifications induced by collagen cross-linking by iontophoresis of riboflavin (ionto-CXL) in ex vivo human corneas by evaluating different protocols of UVA irradiation. In this experimental study 46 ex vivo human corneas obtained from the Eye Bank of Mestre (Italy) were divided in different groups: six were utilized(More)
BACKGROUND To evaluate lens epithelial cell (LEC) proliferation with two different designs (one-piece or three-piece) of hydrophobic acrylic IOLs with 360° square optic edge using an in vitro culture model of posterior capsule opacification (PCO). METHODS This experimental study was conducted at the Department of NEUROFARBA, Section of Pharmacology,(More)
PURPOSE We evaluated the potential protective effects of Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) on human corneal cells and rabbit eyes after ultraviolet B (UVB) exposure and a model of wound healing in rabbit eyes after corneal epithelium removal. METHODS Human corneal epithelium cells (HCE) were exposed to a source of UVB radiation (312 nM) in the presence of different(More)
