METHODS Conjunctival tissue specimens from seven normal subjects and eight patients with SS were obtained by bulbar conjunctival biopsy and examined by transmission electron microscopy. (More)
BACKGROUND To compare the effect of bimatoprost and the fixed combination latanoprost-timolol (LTFC) on 24-hour systolic (SBP) and diastolic (DBP) blood pressure and on 24-hour ocular perfusion pressure (OPP). METHODS 200 patients with glaucoma or ocular hypertension, controlled on the unfixed combination of latanoprost and timolol or eligible for dual(More)
AIMS To create a clinically useful classification for post-keratoplasty corneas based on corneal topography. METHODS A total of 360 topographic maps obtained with the TMS-1, from 95 eyes that had undergone penetrating keratoplasty (PKP), were reviewed independently by two examiners in a masked fashion, and were categorised according to a proposed(More)
BACKGROUND As new methods for corneal curvature measurement have evolved, users of videokeratscopes need to know the practical limitations of these instruments. We assessed agreement between keratometry and videokeratography in measuring highly astigmatic corneas. METHODS Two independent examiners made three keratometric and videokeratographic(More)
