OBJECTIVE To assess the impact of vascular risk factors on the prevalence of primary open angle glaucoma. DESIGN Population-based cross-sectional study. PARTICIPANTS Four thousand two hundred ninety-seven patients more than 40 years of age underwent a complete ocular examination in the context of the Egna-Neumarkt Glaucoma Study. INTERVENTION Ocular(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of the study is to assess the prevalence of various types of glaucoma and to determine the intraocular pressure (IOP) distribution in a defined population in an Italian rural community. DESIGN A cross-sectional epidemiologic study in a defined population was planned. After the screening examination, the subjects with suspected(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the biometric findings of ocular structures in primary angle-closure glaucoma (PACG). DESIGN An observational case series with comparisons among three groups (patients with acute/intermittent PACG [A/I-PACG], patients with chronic PACG [C-PACG], and normal subjects [N]). PARTICIPANTS A total of 54 white patients with PACG (13(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the clinical findings, visual outcomes, and confocal microscopic corneal features of a surgical technique for manual deep lamellar keratoplasty (DLKP) with intentional sparing of the most posterior stroma. DESIGN Noncomparative, prospective, 12-month interventional study. PARTICIPANTS Forty-six eyes of 45 patients who had corneal(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the safety and efficacy of customized transepithelial photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) for the correction of iatrogenic ametropia after penetrating keratoplasty (PKP) or deep lamellar keratoplasty. SETTING Eye Clinic, Department of Neurological and Visual Sciences, University of Verona, Verona, Italy. METHODS This study comprised 9(More)
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)
PURPOSE To document ciliary body constriction and movement with the Crystalens AT-45 intraocular lens (IOL) (eyeonics) using ultrasound biomicroscopy. SETTING Eye Clinic, Department of Neurological and Visual Sciences, University of Verona, Verona, Italy. METHODS Patients with no preexisting ocular conditions other than cataract who agreed to return for(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate selected functional and physical properties of 2 models of accommodative intraocular lenses (IOLs) compared with those of a standard monofocal IOL. DESIGN Prospective randomized comparative trial. PARTICIPANTS Subjects were divided into 3 groups. In group 1, 30 eyes (19 subjects) received 1CU IOL implantation; in group 2, 29 eyes (19(More)
AIMS To evaluate, using anterior segment optical coherence tomography (AS-OCT) and in vivo confocal microscopy (IVCM), the uveo-scleral aqueous humour (AH) outflow pathways after ultrasonic circular cyclocoagulation (UCCC). METHODS Forty-four patients with refractory glaucoma underwent 4 or 6 s UCCC (group 1, 24 eyes; group 2, 20 eyes). UCCC was(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the prevalence of primary angle-closure glaucoma (PACG), the frequency of its different clinical presentations, and its association with peripheral anterior chamber depth in a defined population in Northern Italy. DESIGN Cross-sectional epidemiologic study in a defined population. PARTICIPANTS All subjects resident in the(More)
