PURPOSE To evaluate mutations in the visual system homeobox gene 1 (VSX1) and superoxide dismutase 1 (SOD1) genes with keratoconus (KTCN), direct sequencing was performed in an Iranian population. METHODS One hundred and twelve autosomal dominant KTCN patients and fifty-two unaffected individuals from twenty-six Iranian families, as well as one hundred(More)
BACKGROUND Uterine artery embolization (UAE) is a minimally invasive procedure performed under fluoroscopy for the treatment of uterine fibroids and accompanied by radiation exposure. OBJECTIVES To compare ovarian radiation doses during uterine artery embolization (UAE) in patients using conventional digital subtraction angiography (DSA) with those using(More)
The study aimed to fabricate and characterize a 2-part artificial cornea as a substitute for penetrating keratoplasty in patients with corneal blindness. The peripheral part of the artificial cornea consisted of plasma-treated electrospun poly (ɛ-caprolactone) (PCL) nanofibers, which were attached to a hydrogel disc of polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) as a central(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study is to determine eye care visits which are an indicator of eye care service utilization by Tehran population and its determinants. METHODS Through a population-based, cross-sectional study, 6497 Tehran citizens were sampled. All participants had complete eye examinations and an interview regarding demographic and(More)
BACKGROUND The use of ionizing radiation has led to advances in medical diagnosis and treatment. OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study was to determine the risk of radiation cataractogenesis in the interventionists and staff performing various procedures in different interventional laboratories. PATIENTS AND METHODS This cohort study included 81(More)
PURPOSE To investigate the association between ocular biometrics such as axial length (AL), anterior chamber depth (ACD), lens thickness (LT), vitreous chamber depth (VCD) and corneal power (CP) with different refractive errors. METHODS In a cross-sectional study on the 40 to 64-year-old population of Shahroud, random cluster sampling was performed.(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the short-term effects of a single subconjunctival injection of triamcinolone acetonide as an adjunct to subconjunctival bevacizumab for prevention of corneal neovascularization in rats. METHODS Chemical cauterization was performed in the central cornea of the right eye in 48 male Sprague-Dawley rats (4 eyes were excluded due to(More)
PURPOSE The prevalence of astigmatism, and the astigmatic axis, and their determinants were evaluated in a rural population of Iran. MATERIALS AND METHODS In a cross-sectional study conducted from May to August 2011, 13 villages in the vicinity of the city of Khaf in northeast Iran were investigated in this study. All the examinations including visual(More)
PURPOSE To determine the prevalence of refractive errors among high school students. METHODS In a cross-sectional study, we applied stratified cluster sampling on high school students of Aligoudarz, Western Iran. Examinations included visual acuity, non-cycloplegic refraction by autorefraction and fine tuning with retinoscopy. Myopia and hyperopia were(More)
To compare the 6-month results of two formulations of Riboflavin provided by Sina Darou, Iran, and Uznach, Switzerland, in corneal collagen cross-linking (CXL) for keratoconus patients. Considering the results of the previous study about the similarity of the formulations and the active ingredients of the two types of Riboflavin, they were used in the CXL(More)
