Histologic studies of the vasculature of the anterior optic nerve.
Thirty-one normal human anterior optic nerves were studied in thin serial sections and their vessels stained by standard histologic stains and a new modification of the silver reticulin stain. TheExpand
Becker-Shaffer's diagnosis and therapy of the glaucomas
Surgical principles and procedures for laser therapy of the eye, based on aqueous humor dynamics and clinical entities, are presented. Expand
A comparison of visual field progression criteria of 3 major glaucoma trials in early manifest glaucoma trial patients.
The EMGT criteria identified progression earlier and more often than AGIS and CIGTS criteria and sustainability increased with time after progression; it averaged 79%, 84%, and 81%, respectively, for AGIS, CIGts, and EMGT criterion during the first year after the first progression and 95%, 100%, and 93% during the fourth year after progression.

Embolic ischemic optic neuropathy.
On examining the postmortem enucleated eyes of a 68-year-old man, we found the left eye had focal infarction 3 mm behind the lamina cribrosa caused by thromboembolic compromise of three discrete pialExpand
Hypotonous maculopathy after trabeculectomy with subconjunctival 5-fluorouracil.
Trabeculectomy with adjunctive antifibrosis therapy should be used with caution in young myopic patients, and the means of the ages and refractive errors were statistically significantly different in the two groups. Expand
Late onset of sequential multifocal bleb leaks after glaucoma filtration surgery with 5-fluorouracil and mitomycin C.
Late sequential multifocal bleb leaks may occur after glaucoma filtration surgery with administration of antimetabolites (5-FU or MMC) and are associated with epithelial break-down, hypocellularity, and stromal collagen necrosis in the filtation bleb. Expand
Screening for glaucoma with frequency-doubling technology and Damato campimetry.
Frequency-doubling technology perimetry was superior to Damato campimetry in this screening for glaucoma. Expand
Laser trabeculoplasty and the glaucomas.
Laser therapy was most successful in eyes without prior surgery (chronic open-angle glaucoma), pseudoexfoliation, pigmentary dispersion, or with only one prior operation (iridectomy, trabeculectomy, or intracapsular cataract extraction). Expand
Drainage implant surgery for refractory glaucoma.
Enzymatic sclerostomy: pilot human study.
Enzymatic sclerostomy demonstrated immediate and sustained intraocular pressure reduction and provided symptomatic relief in blind eyes with primary open-angle glaucoma and needs further technical refinement. Expand
