OBJECTIVE To report the clinical features and outcome of patients with pellucid marginal corneal degeneration (PMCD). DESIGN Retrospective noncomparative case series. METHODS Retrospective chart review of 116 eyes of 58 patients with PMCD seen between 1990 and 2002 at the Cornea Service at L.V. Prasad Eye Institute, Hyderabad, India. The diagnosis of(More)
Laser-in-situ-keratomileusis (LASIK) has become a popular technique of refractive surgery because of lower postoperative discomfort, early visual rehabilitation and decreased postoperative haze. Compared to photorefractive keratectomy (PRK), LASIK involves an additional procedure of creating a corneal flap. This may result in complications related to the(More)
PURPOSE To present a case of chemical injury and a case of thermal injury treated by amniotic membrane transplantation in acute phase. METHODS Case reports. An eye with sodium hydroxide injury, opaque cornea, and limbal ischemia of more than 180 degrees and an eye with hot tea injury, opaque cornea, stromal edema, and scarring were treated by amniotic(More)
PURPOSE To report the clinical and microbiological profile of microsporidial keratoconjunctivitis in immunocompetent individuals in southern India. DESIGN Retrospective noncomparative case series. PARTICIPANTS Nineteen cases of microsporidial keratoconjunctivitis diagnosed between January 2002 and December 2004 were studied. METHODS All medical and(More)
PURPOSE To report 2 cases of epithelial infectious crystalline keratopathy. METHODS Two patients (2 eyes) with significant meibomitis presented with minimal inflammation and plaque-like lesions on the corneal surface made of fine crystalline structures. Corneal scrapings of these lesions were performed for microbiological evaluation. The patients were(More)
A 22-year-old woman presented with pain, redness, watering, and decrease in vision in her left eye 15 days after laser in situ keratomileusis for myopia. Slitlamp examination showed a central full-thickness infiltrate with hyphate edges. Microscopic examination of corneal scrapings from the edge and underneath the flap showed fungal filaments, and the(More)
PURPOSE To report the clinical features and topographic findings of superior pellucid marginal corneal degeneration (PMCD). METHODS Retrospective chart review of 15 eyes of eight patients of superior PMCD. Detailed history, visual acuity at presentation, degree of astigmatism, slit-lamp examination findings, topographic features, and Orbscan findings were(More)
We report 2 cases of late spontaneous dislocation (disenclavation) of an iris-claw intraocular lens (IOL) after cataract surgery. Case 1 was a 65-year-old woman who presented with diminution of vision in the left eye. She had left eye cataract surgery 17 years ago with iris-claw IOL implantation. In the left eye, there was temporal disenclavation of IOL and(More)
PURPOSE To report a case of acute hydrops with intrastromal cleft in a patient of keratoconus with associated Marfan's syndrome, treated with intracameral injection of perfluoropropane (C(3)F(8)) gas. DESIGN Interventional case report. METHODS A nonexpansile concentration of perfluoropropane gas (0.2 ml) was injected intracamerally in the operating room(More)
