Blindsight, i.e., unconscious visually guided behaviour triggered by stimuli presented to a cortically blind hemifield, has been typically found either by using direct (forced choice) or indirect (interhemispheric) methods. However, one would expect to find blindsight also in fast responses to suddenly appearing visual stimuli, a reminiscence of… (More)
PURPOSE To compare functional and morphological outcomes of femtosecond laser clear corneal incision (CCI) versus manual CCI during cataract surgery. METHODS Sixty eyes of 60 patients who underwent CCI during cataract surgery were randomized into two groups: femtosecond laser CCI (30 eyes) and manual CCI (30 eyes). RESULTS There were no significant… (More)
Aim To provide a new tool for the evaluation of altered ocular surfaces by using a combination of impression cytology, laser scanning confocal microscopy and advanced image analysis. Methods The expression of keratin 3 (K3), keratin 12 (K12), keratin 19 (K19) and mucin 1 (MUC1) was analysed by immunofluorescence on both histological sections of nine… (More)
We describe a case of fungal keratitis due to Beauveria bassiana in a farmer with Fuchs' dystrophy, treated with amphotericin B. Surgery with penetrating keratoplasty was necessary to resolve the lesions. Susceptibility testing and molecular sequencing permitted the identification and treatment of this rare aetiological agent of invasive fungal disease.
