PURPOSE To evaluate a limbal stem cell deficiency (LSCD) diagnosis method based on the detection of the MUC5AC transcript by reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) in comparison with the standard diagnostic method based on goblet cell detection by periodic acid-Schiff (PAS)-hematoxylin staining, using samples obtained from corneal(More)
PURPOSE To describe the intraocular rotational stability and refractive results of the toric AT TORBI 709 M (former AT.Comfort 464 TLC) intraocular lens (IOL) (Carl Zeiss Meditec AG, Jena, Germany). METHODS Forty-eight eyes of 32 consecutive patients with cataract and greater than 1 diopter of corneal astigmatism were included. Implantation of the toric(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA), incidence of neovascularization and angiographic changes in patients with branch retinal vein occlusion (BRVO) treated with surgical decompression by sheathotomy. METHODS Retrospective study including 17 cases of temporal BRVO with macular edema treated with surgical decompression. Results of BCVA,(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare two different surgical techniques of intracorneal lens implantation. To determine the incidence of corneal and lens complications in two groups of rabbits subjected to such surgery. METHOD The first group (7 rabbits) initially had a keratectomy performed with the microkeratome following which the corneal flap was sutured to the(More)
PURPOSE To report a new surgical procedure for the treatment of ocular surface diseases associated with severe limbal insufficiency. METHODS A retrospective review of four patients with severe ocular surface disease who required stem cell transplantation and keratoplasty for the correction of limbal insufficiencies. They underwent large diameter lamellar(More)
OBJECTIVES To identify and analyze the phosphate concentration in glaucoma eye drops available in Spain. MATERIAL AND METHODS Glaucoma medications containing phosphates were identified according to the 2013 Vademecum and the website of the Spanish Agency for Medicines and Medical Devices. Phosphate concentration was determined in these eye drops using(More)
PURPOSE To analyze objective optical quality changes after pterygium surgical excision using the Optical Quality Analysis System. METHODS Forty eyes with primary pterygium suitable for surgical treatment were included. Uncorrected distance visual acuity, corrected distance visual acuity (CDVA), objective scattering index (OSI), and cutoff frequency of the(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine phosphate concentration and pH in artificial tear eye drops commercially available in Spain. MATERIALS AND METHODS A total of 71 examples of artificial tear preparations were identified in a search of Vademecum 2014 and the Spanish Medicines Agency website. In the 24 artificial tear products containing phosphates, quantification of(More)
