PURPOSE To compare the clinical classification of cataract using the Lens Opacities Classification System (LOCS) III with the mean values of lens density provided by the Pentacam Scheimpflug System in nuclear cataracts. METHODS One hundred and one eyes from 101 patients with age-related nuclear cataract were submitted to clinical examination for lens(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE To evaluate 810-nm subthreshold diode micropulse (SDM) laser in patients with chronic central serous chorioretinopathy (CSC). PATIENTS AND METHODS Prospective, randomized, double-blind, sham-controlled pilot trial. Patients were randomized to SDM laser treatment (group 1) or sham procedure (group 2). Primary outcome measure was(More)
BACKGROUND Sympathetic ophthalmia is a rare, bilateral, diffuse granulomatous uveitis that usually occurs after open globe injury or intraocular surgery. To our knowledge, findings of this condition using spectral-domain optical coherence tomography have not been previously described. METHODS Case report. RESULTS A case of sympathetic uveitis after a(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the efficacy of a prophylactic regimen of daily topical 0.5% moxifloxacin and 5% povidone-iodine (PI) in patients with Boston type I keratoprosthesis (KPro) and to assess the applicability of a novel molecular diagnostic technique to analyze the ocular surface microbiota in these patients. METHODS Ten patients had their inferior(More)
Regardless of significant progress in the field of corneal transplantation to treat corneal opacification, some cases of corneal blindness still present a poor prognosis for conventional penetrating keratoplasty. In patients with repeated graft failure and/or with severe ocular surface disease, the Boston type I keratoprosthesis (type I BKPro) has become a(More)
PURPOSE To investigate factors associated with changes in optic nerve head (ONH) topography after acute intraocular pressure (IOP) reduction in patients with primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG). METHODS Untreated POAG patients (IOP >21 mm Hg) were prospectively enrolled. Systemic and ocular information were collected, including central corneal thickness(More)
Background. To describe the standard autofluorescence (FAF), the near infrared autofluorescence (NIA) and optical coherence tomography (OCT) patterns in central serous chorioretinopathy, correlating them with fluorescein angiography. Methods. Cross-sectional observational study, in which patients with at least seven months of CSC underwent ophthalmologic(More)
PURPOSE To determine factors associated with the test-retest variability of optic nerve head (ONH) topography measurements with confocal scanning laser ophthalmoscopy (CSLO) in newly diagnosed glaucomatous patients. METHODS Consecutive patients with newly diagnosed primary open-angle glaucoma were prospectively enrolled. Patients presenting with any(More)
PURPOSE To report the outcomes of Boston type I keratoprosthesis (BKPro) in the management of ocular burn injuries. METHODS This was a prospective study including all cases of BKPro implantation for ocular burns at the External Diseases and Cornea Service of the Federal University of São Paulo, between February 2008 and February 2010. Ten patients (10(More)
The Antuã River, located in northwestern Portugal, drains a region with a high population density and a strong economic dynamism. These factors, together with a lack of facilities for appropriate treatment of domestic and industrial sewage, are putting increasing pressure on water resources. In this context, the aim of the present study was to identify(More)
