PURPOSE The aim of this study was to show the usefulness of three methods for measuring IOP: Goldmann applanation tonometry, rebound tonometry, and Ultra-High-Speed Scheimpflug technology. METHODS The examined group consisted of 96 patients (192 eyes), including 63 women and 33 men with a mean age of 59.3 ± 19.9 years. Together, 152 healthy eyes and 40(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the dynamics of cornea and graft thickness after Descemet stripping and endothelial keratoplasty (DSEK) using anterior segment optical coherence tomography (AS-OCT) and to assess the usefulness of AS-OCT in monitoring graft adherence after DSEK. METHODS Eighty-eight eyes from 86 patients underwent DSEK for Fuchs endothelial dystrophy(More)
PURPOSE To report a unique case of primary corneal melanoma. METHODS A 59-year-old white woman underwent keratectomy to remove a pigmented rapidly enlarging growth on the corner of her left eye. The specimen was submitted for histopathologic examination. RESULTS Ophthalmic examination disclosed no association with limbal or conjunctival melanocytic(More)
PURPOSE To present own experiences in the surgery of deep lamellar keratoplasty. MATERIALS AND METHODS 25 eye of 25 patients suffering from various corneal pathologies with preserved endothelium: 22 with keratoconus eyes, 2 with post-inflammatory scar and one eye with leucoma in Stevens-Johnson syndrome. Mean follow-up was 25.5 months (from 6 to 32). Main(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate visual recovery results in 11 patients with anterior pseudophakia and corneal endothelial dysfunction who had Descemet-stripping endothelial keratoplasty (DSEK) combined with anterior chamber intraocular lens (IOL) removal and scleral fixation of a posterior chamber IOL. SETTING Department of Ophthalmology, District Railway Hospital(More)
PURPOSE To analyze the graft survival rate and stability of the corneal surface in patients who underwent limbal stem cell transplantation. Three surgical techniques were performed based on the origin of the ocular surface lesion: conjunctival limbal autograft (CLAU), living-related conjunctival limbal autograft (lr-CLAL), and keratolimbal allograft (KLAL)(More)
To evaluate the usefulness of anterior segment optical coherence tomography (AS OCT) for initial diagnosis and for monitoring treatment results in eye injury cases. We examined 38 eyes of 34 patients with different types of ocular injuries: penetrating injury (eight eyes), perforating injury (two eyes), intraocular foreign body (four eyes), ocular burn(More)
PURPOSE Vigorous eye rubbing is a cause of extensive hydrops in mentally retarded patients with keratoconus. We describe a new management approach for this condition. DESIGN Prospective, noncomparative, consecutive case series. PARTICIPANTS Ten eyes of 10 mentally retarded patients aged 18 to 37 years (8 with Down syndrome and 2 with oligophrenia not(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the efficacy and safety of deep lamellar keratoplasty (DLK) as a method for treating various diseases of corneal stroma with unaffected endothelium. METHODS DLK was performed in 31 eyes of 31 patients with corneal stroma opacity without endothelial abnormalities. Surgical procedures included deep removal of corneal stroma 7.5 mm in(More)
PurposeTo evaluate the clinical outcomes of corneal grafting for severe dry eye complications in bone marrow transplant recipients.MethodsEleven eyes of nine patients with severe corneal complications of chronic graft-versus-host disease were treated from 2000 to 2005. The subjects underwent penetrating keratoplasty (n=9 eyes; seven for perforation and two(More)
