Meibomian gland studies: comparison of steer and human lipids.
TLDR
Glass capillary gas-liquid chromatography revealed a series of normal odd- and even-chain hydrocarbons for the steer and a complex pattern for the human samples; unsubstituted fatty acids in total lipids and various lipid classes ranging from C12 to C31 with n-even, n-odd, iso-even and iso-odd; and anteiso-odd chains for both samples.
Comparison of the safety and efficacy of loteprednol 0.5%/tobramycin 0.3% withdexamethasone 0.1%/tobramycin0.3% in the treatment of blepharokeratoconjunctivitis
TLDR
LE/T satisfied the condition of non-inferiority to DM/T in decreasing the signs and symptoms of ocular inflammation associated with blepharokeratoconjunctivitis.
Factors associated with corneal graft survival in the cornea donor study.
TLDR
Most penetrating corneal grafts for Fuchs dystrophy or PACE remain clear at 10 years, but the risk for failure is greater for graft recipients with PACE and those with a history of glaucoma.
The use of the SoftPerm lens for the correction of irregular astigmatism.
TLDR
The SoftPerm lens is a vast improvement over the Saturn II and is a reasonable means of correction of irregular astigmatism and Visual acuity improved significantly.
Brimonidine Purite and bimatoprost compared with timolol and latanoprost in patients with glaucoma and ocular hypertension
TLDR
The combination of brimonidine Purite and bimatoprost was well tolerated and at least as effective as Timoptic-XE and latanoprost in reducing IOP in patients with open-angle glaucoma or ocular hypertension.
One-year results of excimer laser photorefractive keratectomy for myopia.
TLDR
In this small trial, the excimer laser appears to be capable of accurately changing the refractive power of the cornea for the correction of myopia with minimal side effects.
Broken semiflexible intraocular lens implant.
Keratoconus detected by videokeratography in candidates for photorefractive keratectomy.
TLDR
Karatoconus suspects and contact lens-induced changes resembling keratoconus are present in the "normal" myopic population that presents for refractive surgery and Videokeratographic screening is the only effective means of identifying these and other corneal shape abnormalities.
