PURPOSE To evaluate a new high-resolution noncontact biometer (Lenstar; Haag-Streit AG, Koeniz, Switzerland) using optical low-coherence reflectometry and to compare the clinical measurements with those obtained from the IOLMaster (Carl Zeiss, Jena, Germany) and the Pachmumeter (Haag-Streit AG). DESIGN Exploratory evaluation of diagnostic technology and(More)
Little is known about the ocular penetration of amphotericin B (AMB) and its lipid formulations, the current drug of choice in fungal endophthalmitis. The ocular distribution of AMB lipid complex (ABLC), liposomal AMB (L-AMB), and AMB deoxycholate (D-AMB) was studied in a rabbit model. D-AMB (1 mg/kg of body weight/day), ABLC (5 mg/kg/day), or L-AMB (5(More)
This is a report on the results of a national survey designed to study the nature and frequency of moderate and severe complications of intravenous fluorescein angiography. In this survey, 2434 responding ophthalmologists reported on 221,781 fluorescein angiograms performed in the year 1984. Adverse reactions were classified as mild, moderate, severe, and(More)
BACKGROUND Amphotericin B (AmB) and various lipid formulations of AmB are available for the treatment of fungal infections of the eye. Currently, the recommended route of administration for the treatment of fungal keratitis is by topical application. Nevertheless, because of the risk of a difficult to treat exogenous fungal endophthalmitis, a combined(More)
We present a novel architecture for hardware-accelerated rendering of point primitives. Our pipeline implements a refined version of EWA splatting, a high quality method for antialiased rendering of point sampled representations. A central feature of our design is the seamless integration of the architecture into conventional, OpenGL-like graphics pipelines(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS The classic Goldmann applanation tonometer (GAT) has been further developed by Haag-Streit International. The applanation principle has been retained, while the internal force transmission and the pressure gauging have been optimised, the display of results digitised. The authors compared the GAT standard with the new GAT digital. METHODS(More)
BACKGROUND Noninvasive intraocular pressure (IOP) measurement in mice is critically important for understanding the pathophysiology of glaucoma. Rebound tonometry is one of the methods that can be used for obtaining such measurements. We evaluated the ability of the rebound tonometer (RT) to determine IOP differences among various mouse strains and whether(More)
To document the rate of self-reported compliance and glaucoma-related knowledge in Swiss patients and to identify risk factors for their poor compliance. This was an observational study, including a total of 200 consecutive patients already under glaucoma medication in two Swiss tertiary glaucoma clinics (Geneva and Bern). Personal characteristics, presence(More)
