PURPOSE To evaluate the current United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recommendations regarding laser in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) surgery in patients with collagen vascular diseases (CVD) and assess whether these patients make appropriate candidates for laser vision correction, and offer treatment recommendations based on identified clinical(More)
PURPOSE To review and evaluate current and future directions in the diagnosis and surgical management of pellucid marginal degeneration (PMD), including penetrating keratoplasty, full-thickness crescentic wedge resection (FTCWR), deep anterior lamellar keratoplasty (DALK), crescentic lamellar wedge resection (CLWR), crescentic lamellar keratoplasty, tuck-in(More)
BACKGROUND The purpose of this study was to evaluate surgically-induced astigmatism after spherical ablation in photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) and laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) for myopia with astigmatism < 1.00 D. METHODS The charts of patients undergoing spherical PRK or LASIK for the correction of myopia with minimal astigmatism of(More)
PURPOSE A growing number of diabetic patients request laser in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) for elective vision correction each year. While the United States Food and Drug Administration considers diabetes a relative contraindication to LASIK surgery, there are several reports in the literature of LASIK being performed safely in this patient population. The(More)
The Ocular Response Analyzer (ORA) (Reichert Ophthalmic Instruments, Buffalo, NY) allows direct measurement of corneal biomechanical properties. Since its introduction, many studies have sought to elucidate the clinical applications of corneal hysteresis (CH) and corneal resistance factor (CRF). More recently, detailed corneal deformation signal waveform(More)
PURPOSE Sleepiness and sleep deprivation are associated with injury, but few case-control studies have addressed them. We sought to add to the body of analytic observational studies. METHODS Case-control and case-crossover study of 2517 injured patients interviewed in person in 3 emergency departments and matched by age, sex, rural versus urban, day of(More)
A 49-year-old man was referred for consultation because of intractable glare in the left eye after refractive surgery comprising phakic intraocular lens (pIOL) implantation. Preoperatively, the refraction was +4.25 1.00 43 in the right eye and +6.50 2.50 171 in the left eye. The preoperative central anterior chamber depth (ACD) (including corneal thickness)(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the causes of laser programming errors in refractive surgery and outcomes in these cases. METHODS In this multicenter, retrospective chart review, 22 eyes of 18 patients who had incorrect data entered into the refractive laser computer system at the time of treatment were evaluated. Cases were analyzed to uncover the etiology of these(More)
This observational case report describes the development of bilateral Mooren-like ulcers in a patient with anesthetic keratopathy. A 42-year-old man with a recent history of minor eye trauma and pain self-treated with tetracaine eye drops presented with complaints of acutely worsening vision and severe pain bilaterally. His visual acuity at presentation was(More)
