Senile nuclear cataractous lenses were divided into three groups of increasing nuclear color. These groups were considered as successive stages in the development of senile nuclear cataract. The cortex and the nucleus of normal and cataractous lenses were separated into water-soluble, urea-soluble and urea-insoluble fractions. Fractionation on a Sephadex(More)

A theoretical model is presented that is able to explain for the first time the pressure drop across the trabecular meshwork. The ramified flow paths in the subendothelial region of the trabecular meshwork can be interpretated as a filter bed. Data from transmission electron microscope (TEM) photographs are the starting point of the theoretical(More)
The 1-year results obtained in 193 eyes of 146 patients who were enrolled in a prospective study investigating photorefractive keratectomy for myopia correction with the excimer laser are reported. Because of lost follow-up (17 eyes) and reoperations (15 eyes), a complete 1-year follow-up was available in 161 eyes of 115 patients that were included in the(More)
Cultured bovine corneal endothelial cells were labeled with either [35S]sulfate or a combination of [3H]glucosamine and [35S]methionine. The medium proteoheparan sulfate (HS-PG) and cell-associated HS-PG were isolated and identified as heparan sulfate-containing proteoglycans by the susceptibility of their glycosaminoglycan component to specific enzymatic(More)
To evaluate the efficacy, predictability, and stability of myopic photorefractive keratectomy (PRK), the authors completed a 1-year follow-up study on a consecutive series of 26 sighted eyes undergoing this procedure. The results of this follow-up are presented. In addition, side effects and complications in another 255 sighted eyes with a follow-up of 3(More)
The authors show that with the Excimer laser partial trabeculectomy can be performed, a procedure in which the juxtacanalicular meshwork is removed while the other layers remain untouched. It was proved in experiments on ten enucleated human eyes that at most 3% of the outflow resistance is localized in the uveal and sclerocorneal meshwork. The clinical(More)
We used Grant's tonography and fluorophotometry (the Jones and Maurice method) to study the aqueous humor dynamics in normal and glaucomatous eyes. The results of the two methods were compared. The mean facility and rate of aqueous flow in normal eyes were similar. In glaucomatous eyes the tonographic outflow facility (C-value) varied greatly, and the(More)
PURPOSE To compare a Pharmacia diffractive bifocal intraocular lens (IOL) with a monofocal lens of the same design without the diffractive grating. SETTING Multicenter study. METHODS This randomized, prospective study comprised 70 patients with a monofocal IOL and 79 with a diffractive bifocal IOL. Follow-up was 5 to 6 months. Near and distance visual(More)
BACKGROUND Severe decentration and subluxation of intraocular lenses (IOLs) may lead to double vision, glare and deterioration of vision to the point of functional aphakia. The purpose of the present study was to analyse causes for severe IOL dislocation. MATERIAL AND METHODS Between January 1989 and January 1996, 37 patients required IOL exchange because(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate prospectively a diffractive (811E, Pharmacia; power add +4.0 D) versus a refractive (PA154N, Allergan; power add +3.5 D) designed multifocal lens. PARTICIPANTS Eighty patients planned for cataract surgery without additional ocular pathologies were randomized into the diffractive or refractive group, respectively. INTERVENTION A(More)
