PURPOSE To investigate the role of WDR36 and P53 sequence variations in POAG susceptibility. METHODS The authors performed a case-control genetic association study in 268 unrelated Spanish patients (POAG1) and 380 control subjects matched for sex, age, and ethnicity. WDR36 sequence variations were screened by either direct DNA sequencing or denaturing(More)
PURPOSE To determine the percentage of patients implanted bilaterally with ReSTOR((R)) requiring spectacles at 18 months, the patient satisfaction, and factors that predict spectacles independence. METHODS The medical and surgical data were collected from patient records. The 'Freedom from Spectacles Value Scale' (FGVS) was used to rank their experiences(More)
PURPOSE To asses visual quality after bilateral implantation of the Acri.LISA 366D intraocular lens (IOL) (Carl Zeiss Meditec) in patients with high and low-moderate myopia. METHODS A total of 304 eyes of 152 patients had bilateral implantation of the Acri.LISA 366D IOL. The patients were divided into 2 groups: low-moderate myopia (IOL power from 15 to(More)
PURPOSE To determine the differences in refractive and visual results obtained in eyes with high and low myopia after multifocal intraocular lens (IOL) implantation. METHODS Monocular visual acuity for distance and near, with and without distance correction, and photopic and mesopic contrast sensitivity were measured at 6 months after surgery in 152(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate distance, intermediate, and near vision after bilateral implantation of a diffractive aspheric trifocal intraocular lens (IOL). METHODS This study enrolled 204 eyes of 102 patients who had bilateral implantation of the AT LISA tri 839MP IOL. Monocular and binocular uncorrected distance visual acuity (UDVA) and corrected distance visual(More)
LOXL1 gene is the most important genetic risk factor known so far for pseudoexfoliation glaucoma (XFG). Our purpose was to evaluate the potential association of individual genetic variants of the lysyl oxidase-like 1 (LOXL1) gene and haplotypes with XFG in Spanish patients. Blood samples were collected from a total of 105 Spanish patients with XFG and 200(More)
PURPOSE To assess the differences in refractive and visual results obtained in eyes with high and low hyperopia after implantation of a multifocal intraocular lens (IOL). METHODS A prospective study was performed on 172 hyperopic eyes implanted with the AcrySof Re-STOR Natural (SN60D3) IOL. Two groups were created, high and low hyperopes (86 eyes in both(More)
