PURPOSE To study changes in intraocular pressure (IOP) during the early postoperative period in eyes having implantation of a posterior chamber phakic intraocular lens (pIOL) (Visian Implantable Collamer Lens V4c). SETTING Clínica Baviera, Instituto Oftalmológico Europeo, Madrid, Spain. DESIGN Case series. METHODS This retrospective review included(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the long-term refractive and visual stability and the risks related to the implantation of Implantable Collamer Lens (ICL; STAAR Surgical, Monrovia, CA) phakic intraocular lens (PIOL) for myopia. METHODS This retrospective, consecutive, cumulative clinical study was performed in a group of 144 eyes implanted with ICL PIOL for myopia.(More)
PURPOSE To compare long-term refractive and visual outcomes of laser in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) and laser surface ablation in eyes with corneas thinner than 470 μm. SETTING Private clinics, Spain. DESIGN Comparative case series. METHODS The study comprised eyes with myopic error and corneas thinner than 470 μm that had at least 2.9 years of(More)
Innovation on the base of technologies in the operation management function is key for the competitiveness of the SMEs. This paper analyzes the learnt lessons related to the implementation of an “Operation Management System” (OMS) in a group of eight Spanish SMEs and provides guides to make it more efficient. We applied Lean Manufacturing(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate clinical results of intrastromal corneal ring segments (ICRS) in a large series of post-laser in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) ectasia and determine which clinical parameters were related to the success of this technique. SETTINGS Vissum Corporation and Clínica Baviera Group, Alicante, Spain. DESIGN Case series. METHODS Intrastromal(More)
PURPOSE To analyze refractive, visual, and contrast sensitivity outcomes of laser in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) performed under thin flaps (less than 100 microm), and compare them with those of conventional thicker flaps. SETTING Clínica Baviera, Instituto Oftalmológico Europeo, Madrid, Spain. METHODS This retrospective study comprised 280 consecutive(More)
PURPOSE To assess the incidence, culture results, and visual outcomes of infectious keratitis after laser in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) and surface ablation when topical moxifloxacin was added to postoperative prophylaxis with tobramycin. SETTING Clínica Baviera, Instituto Oftalmológico Europeo, Bilbao, Spain. DESIGN Retrospective case series review.(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the incidence, culture results, risk factors, treatment strategies, and visual outcomes of infectious keratitis after surface ablation. SETTING Multicenter study in Spain. DESIGN Case series. METHODS The medical records of patients who had surface ablation between January 2003 and December 2009 were reviewed to identify cases of(More)
