PURPOSE To compare the participant-obtained intraocular pressures (IOPs) using Icare ONE and the clinician-obtained values using Icare PRO, both rebound tonometers, with Goldmann tonometry (GAT) values and analyze the ease of use of Icare ONE. METHODS One hundred fifty participants were included (60 normal controls, 90 patients with glaucoma/ocular(More)
PURPOSE To assess the mutation spectrum, enzymatic activity, and phenotypic features associated with CYP1B1 genotypes in primary congenital glaucoma (PCG) and nondominant juvenile glaucoma (ndJG). DESIGN CYP1B1 genotyping, segregation analysis, and functional evaluation of mutations in a cohort of patients. PARTICIPANTS A total of 177 probands(More)
Purpose. To evaluate the long-term efficacy and safety of the iStent inject device (Glaukos Corporation, Laguna Hills, CA) combined with phacoemulsification in patients with coexistent cataract and open-angle glaucoma or ocular hypertension (OHT). Methods. A prospective, uncontrolled, nonrandomized, interventional case series study was conducted in patients(More)
PURPOSE To compare central corneal thickness (CCT) values obtained by Lenstar (LE), Pentacam (PC), specular microscopy (SM) and ultrasound pachymetry (UP) in healthy corneas and study their influence on intraocular pressure (IOP) readings determined by Goldmann applanation tonometry (GAT). METHODS CCT was measured in 76 healthy subjects by LE, PC, SM and(More)
PURPOSE To examine the reproducibility of the new digital Goldmann applanation tonometer AT 900D (DGT) for measuring intraocular pressure and to compare its readings with those provided by the conventional analog Goldmann tonometer (AGT). METHODS In 3 different sessions (S1, S2, and S3), 3 intraocular pressure measurements were made in 15 eyes of 15(More)
PURPOSE This case report illustrates the efficacy of the Glaukos trabecular bypass (Glaukos i-stent, Glaukos Corporation, Laguna Hills, California, USA) used for intraocular pressure (IOP) control in a patient with glaucoma induced by the steroid treatment of post–laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) bilateral anterior uveitis. METHODS A(More)
PURPOSE To compare intraocular pressure (IOP) measurements obtained using the new rebound tonometer Icare-Pro and the hand-held version of Goldmann Applanation Tonometer (Perkins tonometer) in children with primary congenital glaucoma (PCG) under general anesthesia. MATERIALS AND METHODS Using both tonometers, 3 IOP measurements were prospectively(More)
The approval of one of the first anti-vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) agents for the treatment of neovascular age-related macular degeneration one decade ago marked the beginning of a new era in the management of several sight-threatening retinal diseases. Since then, emerging evidence has demonstrated the utility of these therapies for the(More)
PURPOSE To characterize five models of corneal thickness circular zoning in a sample of healthy controls and a sample of patients with primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG) and to determine their effect on Goldmann (GAT), dynamic contour (DCT) and rebound tonometers (RT). METHODS The study participants were 122 controls and 129 cases. Five corneal thickness(More)
AIM To anatomically locate the points of minimum corneal thickness and central corneal thickness (pupil center) in relation to the corneal apex. METHODS Observational, cross-sectional study, 299 healthy volunteers. Thickness at the corneal apex (AT), minimum corneal thickness (MT) and corneal thickness at the pupil center (PT) were determined using the(More)
