Self-reported compliance with topical cyclosporine emulsion 0.05% and onset of the effects of increased tear production as assessed through patient surveys.
TLDR
An association between patient-reported compliance with medication and more rapid onset of the effects of increased tear production is suggested in participants using cyclosporine for dry eye in an actual-practice setting. Expand
An anatomic study of retrobulbar needle path length.
TLDR
The authors recommend that needles be placed less than 31 mm (1.25 in) behind the orbital rim for both retro- and peribulbar anesthesia. Expand
Recurrent Corneal Erosion: Pathology of Corneal Puncture
TLDR
It is found that an insertion depth of 0.1 mm was sufficient to cause the production of new basement membrane and fibrocytic reaction in the anterior stroma, and analysis of the pathologic specimen supports the use of the larger 23- and 25-gauge needles, and cautions against theuse of small gauge needles, especially 30-g Gauge for this procedure.

Macroscopic pigmentation in a dematiaceous fungal keratitis.
TLDR
A case of a Curvularia lunata fungal keratitis in a 40-year-old patient who presented with diffuse brown pigmentation throughout the ulcer bed is reported, and Histologic staining and growth on Sabourad's dextrose agar demonstrated the brown pigmented fungus. Expand
Ocufen and pupillary dilation during cataract surgery
TLDR
The Ocufen‐treated group maintained pupillary dilation better on the average and had a much smaller incidence of pupil constriction greater than 2 mm. Expand
Analysis of fifteen positional candidate genes for Schnyder crystalline corneal dystrophy.
TLDR
Screening of the remaining positional candidate genes is anticipated to lead to the identification of the genetic basis of Schnyder crystalline corneal dystrophy through screening of positional candidates in affected patients. Expand
Intracameral ketorolac concentration at the beginning and end of cataract surgery following preoperative topical ketorolac administration
TLDR
At-home compliance with topical ketorolac was good, with 92.9% of patients using it as directed, and 66.7% of Patients following CELR had undetectable levels. Expand
Risk factors for rapid glaucoma progression
TLDR
A retrospective case-controlled study between cohorts of rapid glaucoma disease progressors and nonrapid progressors found that rapid progressors were older, had significantly lower central corneal thickness, and baseline intraocular pressures. Expand
