We reviewed 204 cases of biopsy-proved sarcoidosis at our institution from 1967 through 1983 to determine the extent of this disease in our catchment area and the degree of awareness by the various medical specialties of sarcoid manifestations. The ophthalmology service was used as an example. Our results showed that there were familial clusters of sarcoid;(More)
The Marco Model-1 keratometer was compared for accuracy and precision with the El Hage Corneal Topography System (EH-270). Five consecutive readings of three steel calibration balls (40.50 D, 42.50 D, 44.75 D), one PMMA hemisphere (48.00 D), and 14 eyes (seven patients) were obtained using each instrument. Keratometry was found to be statistically more(More)
Recurrent corneal erosion is a difficult disorder to treat. Despite conventional therapy, some patients continue to have episodes of erosion. Recent literature suggests the efficacy of corneal puncture, which is thought to induce adherence of the epithelium and basement membrane to the anterior stroma. We performed multiple corneal punctures with 23-, 25-,(More)
We studied freezing rates, cryoprotectants, and storage times on keratocyte viability, using rabbit corneal buttons incubated in either KM-26, CPTES, K-Sol, or TC 199 for 30 minutes at 4 degrees C. Using a controlled freezing rate (2 degrees/min to -40 degrees C), viabilities were 69 +/- 7% for KM-26, 113 +/- 21% for CPTES, 0.1 +/- 0.08% for K-Sol, and 0(More)
