PURPOSE To evaluate the effectiveness and safety of accelerated corneal collagen cross-linking (ACXL) in patients below 14 years of age with progressive keratoconus. MATERIALS AND METHODS Thirty eyes of 18 patients with established progressive keratoconus underwent preoperative and postoperative visual acuity assessment, topography, and specular(More)
STUDY OBJECTIVES Because sleep and wakefulness differ from each other by the amount of body movement, it has been claimed that the two states can be accurately distinguished by wrist actigraphy. Our objective was to test this claim in lengthy polysomnographic (psg) and actigraphic (acf) samples that included night and day components. DESIGN Fourteen(More)
BACKGROUND Autoregulation of blood flow that maintains steady perfusion over the range of systemic blood pressure is compromised by stroke. OBJECTIVES To determine whether cerebral vasoregulation is impaired in stroke during orthostatic stress. METHODS Subjects included 30 control subjects, 30 with hypertension, and 20 with minor stroke and were studied(More)
Keratoconus is a slowly progressive, noninflammatory ectatic corneal disease characterized by changes in corneal collagen structure and organization. Though the etiology remains unknown, novel techniques are continuously emerging for the diagnosis and management of the disease. Demographical parameters are known to affect the rate of progression of the(More)
PURPOSE To report the profile of microbial keratitis occurring after corneal collagen cross-linking (CXL) in keratoconus patients. METHODS A retrospective analysis of 2350 patients (1715 conventional CXL, 310 transepithelial CXL, and 325 accelerated CXL) over 7 years (from January 2007 to January 2014) of progressive keratoconus, who underwent CXL at a(More)
PURPOSE To assess the efficacy and advantages of femtosecond laser enabled keratoplasty (FLEK) over conventional penetrating keratoplasty (PKP) in advanced keratoconus. MATERIALS AND METHODS Detailed review of literature of published randomized controlled trials of operative techniques in PKP and FLEK. RESULTS Fifteen studies were identified, analyzed,(More)
Custard apple seeds have been used in native medicine from time immemorial for the management of head lice and skin exfoliation. We report six consecutive patients who developed toxic keratoconjunctivitis within 6-12 h of ocular exposure to custard apple seeds. The use of topical steroid worsens the toxicity and predisposes to the development of microbial(More)
Purpose. To study the corneal nerve morphology and its importance in unilateral keratoconus. Materials and Methods. In this prospective cross-sectional study, 33 eyes of 33 patients with keratoconus in one eye (Group 3) were compared with the other normal eye of the same patients (Group 2) and 30 eyes of healthy patients (Group 1). All patients underwent(More)
AIM To study the safety and efficacy of sutureless femtosecond anterior lamellar keratoplasty (FALK) in patients with corneal stromal opacities. MATERIALS AND METHODS Eleven eyes of 11 consecutive patients with corneal stromal opacities involving < 250 μ due to various pathologies were included in the study. Preoperatively, all underwent anterior segment(More)
