Time-dependent retinal ganglion cell loss, microglial activation and blood-retina-barrier tightness in an acute model of ocular hypertension.
Glaucoma is a group of neurodegenerative diseases characterized by the progressive loss of retinal ganglion cells (RGCs) and their axons, and is the second leading cause of blindness worldwide.Expand

Intraocular Pressure Course During the Femtosecond Laser-Assisted Cataract Surgery in Porcine Cadaver Eyes.
Purpose Femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgery (FLACS) is an increasingly common procedure. Most laser systems require corneal applanation and thereby increase intraocular pressure (IOP). TheExpand

Profiles of intraocular pressure in human donor eyes during femtosecond laser procedures--a comparative study.
PURPOSE To compare four different femtosecond laser devices (IntraLase FS, Zeiss VisuMAX, and Ziemer Femto LDV, and a prototype Schwind SmartTech Nanolaser) in human donor eyes with regard to theirExpand

Aquaporin expression and localization in the rabbit eye.
Aquaporins (AQPs) are important for ocular homeostasis and function. While AQP expression has been investigated in ocular tissues of human, mouse, rat and dog, comprehensive data in rabbits areExpand

Effect of the outer stent position on efficacy after minimally invasive transscleral glaucoma gel stent implantation
The outer stent lumen can be located either deeper (in or under Tenon's layer) or more superficially in the conjunctival stroma after the transscleral XEN Glaucoma Gel Microstent (XEN‐GGM; AllerganExpand

Intraindividual aqueous flare comparison after implantation of hydrophobic intraocular lenses with or without a heparin‐coated surface
Purpose To assess the efficacy of a heparin‐surface‐modified (HSM) hydrophobic acrylic intraocular lens (IOL) (EC‐1YH PAL) and the same IOL without heparin coating (EC‐1Y‐PAL) by the flare and cellExpand

Novel non-contact retina camera for the rat and its application to dynamic retinal vessel analysis
We present a novel non-invasive and non-contact system for reflex-free retinal imaging and dynamic retinal vessel analysis in the rat. Theoretical analysis was performed prior to development of theExpand
