The term peripheral ulcerative keratitis represents a spectrum of inflammatory diseases, characterized by cellular infiltration, corneal thinning, and ulceration. Neutrophilic dermatoses are rarely associated with peripheral ulcerative keratitis. To date, peripheral ulcerative keratitis has only been reported in patients with pyoderma gangrenosum.

Although an estimated 1 million Americans suffer ocular injuries each year, the setting of injury and its prognostic implications have not been closely examined. Using data compiled by the Eye Injury Registry of Alabama (EIRA) from 514 cases of serious eye injury, we examined the demographics and prognosis of ocular injury by setting of injury.

The efficacy of foldable silicone intraocular lenses in combined glaucoma/cataract surgery was retrospectively analyzed in 19 consecutive operations. Preoperatively all patients were receiving medical treatment for glaucoma; 21% had intraocular pressures above 21 mm Hg despite the medical therapy. Postoperatively, reduction of intraocular pressure to 21 mm(More)
Management of recurring hyphemas associated with posterior chamber intraocular lenses may include a combination of medical, laser, and surgical modalities. Miotic and laser therapies have often failed, and surgical treatment has primarily relied on removal of the offending lens. We describe herein a method for rotation of the intraocular lens that provides(More)
In the 10-year period from 1977 to 1987, lawnmowers have been responsible for approximately 70,000 injuries annually with an estimated 5% (3300) involving the eyes. Hyphema, angle recession, and traumatic retinopathy are especially common forms of lawnmower ocular trauma. A series of 14 cases of lawnmower-induced eye injuries is presented along with(More)
Of all the causes of eye injury, gunshot has recently been cited as resulting in the highest rate of blindness and the lowest rate of visual recovery. Many of these cases are hunting accidents in which safety glasses could have prevented or lessened ocular damage. To evaluate the effectiveness of various types of safety glasses, we fired a Remington(More)
Monocular patients who wear an ocular prosthesis may harbor pathogenic conjunctival flora both in the socket and in the contralateral eye. They may therefore be at increased risk of developing endophthalmitis after intraocular procedures. We studied a monocular, prosthesis-wearing, 86-year-old man who underwent cataract extraction, subtotal transpupillary(More)
This paper explores a discriminative part-based approach for recognising people in video. It uses many regions to model the background and foreground and a random forest for classification. The objective is to overcome the limitations of more holistic approaches that try to recognise people as a single region with the consequential need to segment each(More)
