Retinal neovascularization is the most common cause of blindness; Retinopathy of pre-maturity (ROP) for children and diabetic retinopathy for young age group. ROP still remains as the most serious cause of vision loss in children. We provided that deguelin significantly reduces retinal neovascularization in a mouse model of ROP. Deguelin never affected the(More)
PURPOSE To compare preoperative and postoperative ocular biometry in patients with iris-fixated phakic intraocular lens (pIOLs): Artisan and Artiflex. MATERIALS AND METHODS This study included 40 eyes with Artisan and 36 eyes with Artiflex pIOL implants. Anterior chamber depth (ACD) and axial length (AL) were measured by applanation ultrasonography(More)
Dear Editor, Contrary to the majority of acute conjunctivitis cases, chronic conjunctivitis can be caused by infection or inflammation of the lacrimal duct system, conjunctival in-traepithelial neoplasm, floppy eyelid syndrome, and immu-nologic reaction [1,2].

Visual field defect is a major indication for surgery of pituitary adenoma, but visual outcome after surgery is difficult to predict. We developed a nomogram that predicts postoperative restoration of visual field defects in patients with pituitary adenoma. This study was a retrospective cohort investigation of patients who were treated for pituitary(More)
PURPOSE To compare the accuracy of central true net corneal power (cTNP) and mean true net corneal power (mTNP) of the Pentacam system to give a keratometry (K) reading for calculating IOL (intraocular lens) power in eyes following refractive surgery. METHODS Refraction, an automated K-reading (Km), cTNP and mTNP were measured for 15 eyes that required(More)
