PURPOSE To assess in normal and glaucomatous eyes the effect of the dopaminergic drug 2% ibopamine on visual acuity, IOP, pupil size and anterior segment geometry, compared with 10% phenylephrine and 1% tropicamide. METHODS Fifteen healthy subjects and 15 patients with primary open-angle glaucoma, aged from 40 to 70 years (mean age: 54.8 +/- 9.6), were(More)
Twelve cases of uveal melanoma (T3N0M0:11 patients, T4N0M0:1 patient) treated with Gamma Knife stereotactic radiosurgery are reported. Our protocol includes preoperative ocular and systemic assessments with complete ocular examination, ophthalmoscopy, fundus photography, fluorangiography, standardized echography, CT and MRI, chest X-rays, liver echography(More)
The effectiveness of three different automated perimetry strategies for the screening of glaucomatous visual field defects was studied on 182 eyes of glaucoma suspects. The results were compared with those obtained with the Octopus G1 program. On this particular sample of population the results are as follows. Henson perimeter: sensitivity 59.4%,(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 report on 36 cases of uveal melanoma treated at our center between March 1993 and September 1995. There were 16 men and 20 women, aged 57 +/- 11 years. The choroid was affected in 35 patients and the ciliary-body in 1. The same preoperative and follow-up protocol was adopted for all cases. The procedure included fixation and positioning of the eye with a(More)
PURPOSE To investigate morphologic changes of the corneoscleral limbus in glaucoma patients using laser scanning confocal microscopy (LSCM) and impression cytology (IC). METHODS Eighty patients with glaucoma and 20 with dry eye were enrolled; 20 healthy subjects served as controls. Patients underwent the Ocular Surface Disease Index (OSDI) questionnaire,(More)
Between February 1993 and March 1994, 75 metastases, 16 gliomas and 2 AIDS-related malignant lymphomas were treated with Gamma Knife radiosurgery. Metastatic brain tumors (54% lung cancer, 14% breast cancer, 13.5% melanoma) were the most frequent and clinically rewarding cases. So-called local control was achieved in almost all patients, the vast majority(More)
Three-dimensional (3D) volume reconstruction is easily feasible with axial, coronal or sagittal CT and MRI scans. On the other hand, radiosurgical treatment of arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) is exclusively based on two orthogonal stereotactic projections, obtained with angiographic procedures. Most commonly AVM volumes have been calculated by(More)
Fifteen children aged less than 11 years, affected by congenital glaucoma, underwent visual field testing using two different methods: conventional computerized perimetry (24-2 Humphrey program) and High Pass Resolution perimetry (Ring test). The aim of the study was to discover which of the two perimetric techniques was more suitable for younger patient.(More)
