PURPOSE To determine if the lens volume changes during accommodation. METHODS The study used data acquired on 36 cynomolgus monkey lenses that were stretched in a stepwise fashion to simulate disaccommodation. At each step, stretching force and dioptric power were measured and a cross-sectional image of the lens was acquired using an optical coherence(More)
PURPOSE To determine the role of anterior and posterior zonular tension on the optomechanical lens response during accommodation simulation. METHODS Ten eyes from nine hamadryas baboons (4.9 ± 0.7 years) and 20 eyes from 18 cynomolgus monkeys (5.4 ± 0.3 years) were dissected, leaving the lens, zonules, ciliary body, hyaloid membrane, anterior vitreous,(More)
Our purpose was to develop a technique for maintaining air within the anterior chamber during endothelial keratoplasty in eyes that have previously undergone trabeculectomy or a glaucoma drainage implant. Whole human globes and rabbits underwent penetrating glaucoma surgery to develop the technique. Without the aid of any additional device or manipulation,(More)
Presbyopia is an age related, gradual loss of accommodation, mainly due to changes in the crystalline lens. As part of research efforts to understand and cure this condition, ex vivo, cross-sectional optical coherence tomography images of crystalline lenses were obtained by using the Ex-Vivo Accommodation Simulator (EVAS II) instrument and analyzed to(More)
PURPOSE To quantify the role of anterior zonular tension on the optomechanical lens response during simulation of accommodation in primates. METHODS Postmortem cynomolgus monkey eyes (n = 14; age range, 3.0-11.5 years) were dissected leaving intact the lens, zonules, ciliary body, hyaloid membrane, anterior vitreous, and a scleral rim. The lens was(More)
Laser trabeculoplasty (LT) is a commonly used modality of treatment for glaucoma. The mechanism by which LT lowers the intraocular pressure (IOP) is unknown. With the use of cat eyes, selective laser trabeculoplasty (SLT) with a Q-switched frequency doubled Nd:YAG laser was used to treat the trabecular meshwork (TM). Laser treated TM was then subjected to(More)
