Pars plana vitrectomy for the treatment of rhegmatogenous retinal detachment uncomplicated by advanced proliferative vitreoretinopathy.
It is concluded that pars plana vitrectomy is an effective method for treatment of selected cases of rhegmatogenous retinal detachment not complicated by proliferative vitreoretinopathy.
Treatment of band keratopathy by excimer laser phototherapeutic keratectomy: surgical techniques and long term follow up.
In eyes with reduced vision, an improvement was reported in 88% and in a series of 66 eyes mean Snellen visual acuity increased significantly, and visual contrast sensitivity and measurements of disability glare improved postoperatively.
Systemic cyclosporin A in high risk penetrating keratoplasties: a case-control study
The results suggest that the benefit of CSA over conventional therapy in preventing rejection episodes and subsequent graft failure is only moderate and did not reach statistically significant levels in this study.
Corneal light scattering after excimer laser photorefractive keratectomy: the objective measurements of haze.
It appears that this device is very useful to defect and measure objectively disturbances in corneal transparency after excimer laser photorefractive keratectomy.
The effect of topical corticosteroids on refractive outcome and corneal haze after photorefractive keratectomy. A prospective, randomized, double-blind trial.
It is concluded that long-term use of corticosteroids to maintain the initial beneficial effect on refraction would be unacceptable, and these agents should not be used after photorefractive keratectomy.
'Haze' in photorefractive keratectomy: Its origins and consequences
A marginal loss of corneal transparency or 'haze' is a phenomenon experienced after photorefractive keratectomy using excimer lasers and this second wave of visual disturbance may correlate with cellular responses subsequent to cessation of steroid therapy at three months.
Photorefractive keratectomy: implications of corneal wound healing.
It is now apparent that an initial period of overcorrection is followed by regression to a relatively stable refraction and that in a proportion of cases stromal scarring can produce glare and a loss of best corrected visual acuity.
