We report a case of traumatic partial flap dislocation 10 years after uneventful laser in situ keratomileusis (LASIK). The patient was treated bilaterally for hyperopia and astigmatism with LASIK. A superior-hinged corneal flap was created using the Moria M2 microkeratome (Moria SA, Antony, France) and the surgery was uneventful. Ten years later, partial(More)
BACKGROUND The purpose of this study was to evaluate the visual outcome of photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) in patients with mild to moderate stable keratoconus and to assess the risk of progression of the disease after the excimer laser procedure. METHODS In this prospective study, carried out at the Clemenceau Medical Center, an affiliate of Johns(More)
A 44-year-old male with no pertinent history other than poor vision for more than 25 years was examined. Best corrected visual acuity was 20/80 OD [MR: +14.25 +1.00 × 15°] and 20/200 OS [MR: +15.00 +1.50 × 175°]. Significant limitation in ocular movements and the presence of an orbital lipodermoid in the infero-temporal aspect of each eye were noted. Forced(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the effect of femtosecond laser and excimer laser on an intracorneal inlay (KAMRA®) implanted in animal models. METHODS Femtosecond laser was used to create corneal intrastromal pockets at 250μm depth in five porcine eyes. Four intact KAMRA inlays, examined by slit-lamp biomicroscopy and light microscopy, were implanted in the pocket(More)
OBJECTIVE Case series of haptic migration in patients with angle-supported phakic anterior chamber intraocular lens (PAC-IOL: Phakic6H) through the superior peripheral iridectomy (PI). METHODS Charts of 23 patients (35 eyes) with at least 6 months' postoperative follow-up were retrospectively reviewed. Evaluation included preoperative and postoperative(More)
Open-globe injuries with no light perception (NLP) carry a poor prognosis, and many ophthalmologists select a primary enucleation or evisceration as a result. We present a case of complete visual rehabilitation in a patient who presented with NLP after a zone III penetrating open-globe injury. We recommend patient counseling regarding decision making and(More)
