PURPOSE To report the long-term results of combined collagen crosslinking (CXL) and toric phakic intraocular lens (pIOL) implantation to correct myopic astigmatism in patients with progressive mild to moderate keratoconus. SETTING Instituto de Microcirugia Ocular, Barcelona, Spain. DESIGN Case series. METHODS From November 2006 to July 2009, CXL was(More)
PURPOSE To describe a new bimanual technique for insertion and positioning of endothelium-Descemet membrane (EDM) grafts in Descemet membrane endothelial keratoplasty (DMEK). METHODS Prospective, noncomparative, consecutive interventional case series, including 15 pseudophakic eyes of 15 patients treated with DMEK at the Instituto de Microcirugia Ocular,(More)
OBJECTIVE To report the clinical presentation, surgical management, and outcomes of rhegmatogenous retinal detachment (RRD) in patients with severe myopia corrected by posterior chamber phakic (PCP) intraocular lens (IOL) implantation. DESIGN Retrospective, noncomparative, interventional case series. PARTICIPANTS Sixteen eyes of 15 patients in whom(More)
PURPOSE To compare clinical outcomes using 20% sulfur hexafluoride (SF6) versus 100% air as a tamponade for graft attachment in Descemet membrane endothelial keratoplasty (DMEK). DESIGN Retrospective, comparative, interventional case series. PARTICIPANTS Pseudophakic patients with Fuchs' endothelial dystrophy or pseudophakic bullous keratopathy that(More)
PURPOSE To report two highly myopic patients with silicone posterior chamber phakic intraocular lenses (Phakic Refractive Lens; CIBA Vision, Duluth, Ga) that luxated into the vitreous cavity without history of ocular trauma. METHODS Two patients with posterior chamber phakic intraocular lenses (PIOLs) that luxated into the vitreous cavity of the right eye(More)
PURPOSE To compare the efficacy of conjunctival resection versus conjunctival resection with amniotic membrane graft (AMG) in patients with superior limbic keratoconjunctivitis not responsive to medical therapies. METHODS In a retrospective and comparative study, 16 eyes of 9 patients with long-lasting superior limbic keratoconjunctivitis who were(More)
PURPOSE To report the 4-year outcomes after Intacs intrastromal corneal ring segment (ICRS) implantation to correct low myopia in patients with abnormal topography. SETTING Instituto de Microcirugia Ocular, Barcelona, Spain. METHODS This retrospective consecutive interventional case series included eyes with myopia lower than -4.50 diopters (D) and(More)
UNLABELLED We present a 14-year-old boy with a history of advanced keratoconus in the left eye. Two 400 μm intrastromal corneal ring segments (ICRS) (Intacs) were implanted on the 140-degree meridian at a depth of 400 μm in the left eye using the suction-guided manual dissection technique. While the temporal segment was being implanted, a probable break in(More)
PURPOSE To compare the morphological features of photorefractive ablations produced by six different excimer lasers. METHODS A spherocylindrical photoablation (-2.00 -2.00 x 90 degrees; 6-mm optical zone) was performed on regular fluence plates with six excimer lasers: Bausch & Lomb Technolas 217C, Schwind Esiris, Kera Technology Isobeam D200, Ladarvision(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS To evaluate the efficacy, predictability, safety and complications of secondary iris-claw intraocular lens (IOL) implantation in aphakic eyes without capsular support. METHODS Retrospective, non-comparative, interventional case series of 128 aphakic eyes, which consecutively underwent secondary iris-claw Artisan IOL (Ophtec BV)(More)
