BACKGROUND The aim of our investigation was to analyze the autoantibody -reactivities of patients after acute angle-closure glaucoma (AACG) by means of a protein microarray approach to identify intraocular pressure(IOP)-dependent antibodies. METHODS Collected sera from different study time points (AACG n = 6, 0, 2, 4 and 12 weeks) and control group (CTRL(More)
The aim of this work is to compare the microstructure of cornea verticillata in Fabry disease with amiodarone-induced keratopathy by means of in vivo confocal laser-scanning microscopy (CLSM). Ten eyes of ten patients suffering from Fabry disease, six eyes of six patients with amiodarone-induced keratopathy and eight eyes of healthy control subjects were(More)
To evaluate the inter- and intraobserver variability of ocular response analyzer (ORA) measurements, namely corneal-compensated intraocular pressure (IOPcc), corneal resistance factor (CRF) and corneal hysteresis (CH). One randomly chosen eye of 46 healthy volunteers was included in this study. Three clinical observers performed three consecutive(More)
BACKGROUND The exact pathogenesis of open angle glaucoma and ocular hypertension remains unclear. Hemodynamic influences are discussed as potential risk factors and the choroid may play an important role in the pathogenesis of open angle glaucoma or ocular hypertension. The current study investigates peripapillary choroidal thickness and choroidal area in(More)
AIMS To investigate the feasibility and to compare three devices measuring intraocular pressure (IOP) in mucopolysaccharidosis patients (MPS): iCare rebound tonometer (RT), Perkins applanation tonometer (PAT) and ocular response analyzer (ORA). METHODS MPS patients who underwent at least two examinations out of: RT, PAT and ORA at the same visit were(More)
In humans, regeneration of the corneal epithelium is regulated by the stem cell reservoir of the limbus. After extensive limbal damage, e.g., by inflammation, thermal burn or chemical injury, limbal stem cell deficiency leading to vascularization and opacification of the cornea and resulting in vision loss, may develop. Several techniques of autologous and(More)
AIMS To investigate an influence of mucopolysaccharidosis (MPS)- and Morbus Fabry-associated corneal opacities on intraocular pressure (IOP) measurements and to evaluate the concordance of the different tonometry methods. METHODS 25 MPS patients with or without corneal clouding, 25 Fabry patients with cornea verticillata ≥ grade 2 and 25 healthy age(More)
AIMS The tonographic effect is a phenomenon of intraocular pressure (IOP) reduction following repeated tonometry. This study examines whether the tonographic effect occurs following IOP measurement performed with Ocular Response Analyzer (ORA). METHODS Both eyes of 31 glaucoma patients and 35 healthy controls underwent nine IOP-measurements performed with(More)
PURPOSE To describe the use of soft contact lenses (CL) to reduce the epithelial opacities of Lisch epithelial corneal dystrophy (LECD). First presentation of confocal microscopy in LECD. METHODS Two unrelated female patients with LECD demonstrated a central gray opacity with distinct visual impairment. The first patient wore a daily(More)
