There has been generally little attention paid to the utilization of biomaterials as an anti-myopia treatment. The purpose of this study was to investigate whether polymeric hydrogels, either implanted or injected adjacent to the outer scleral surface, slow ocular elongation. White Leghorn (Gallus gallus domesticus) chicks were used at 2 weeks of age.(More)
Over 100 million individuals are affected by irreversible visual impairments and blindness worldwide, while ocular diseases remain a challenging problem despite significant advances in modern ophthalmology. Development of novel drugs and drug delivery mechanisms, as well as advanced ophthalmological techniques requires experimental models including animals,(More)
The correlation between biomechanical properties of the corneoscleral tunic and stereometric parameters of the optic nerve head in children and adolescents with congenital and acquired myopia has been studied comparatively. The results showed that in children with high myopia, congenital or acquired, the corneoscleral parameters (scleral echodensity at the(More)
We have previously shown that, normally, two forms of the pigment epithelium-derived factor (PEDF) with molecular weights of 50 and 45 kDa are present in the Tenon’s capsule in equal amounts. These forms represent the full-length protein and a product of restricted proteolysis of PEDF. In persons with myopia, the full-length uncleaved factor was(More)
To study the possibility of corneal contribution to process of accommodation in myopic eyes we examined 4 groups of patients: children and adolescents with low (1st group) to moderate (2nd group) myopia, young adults with moderate to high myopia after LASIK (3rd group) and PRK (4th group). Corneal optic power was measured using binocular open-field(More)
