Tear evaporimeter for measuring water evaporation rate from the tear film under controlled conditions in humans.
The rate of water evaporation from the tear film depends on the conditions under which it is determined. If measured in a controlled and easily reproducible setting, tear evaporation rate could serveExpand
Biodegradable microspheres for vitreoretinal drug delivery.
Vitreoretinal disorders are one of the major causes of blindness in the developed world. Treatments of these pathologies often include repeated intravitreous injections to achieve intraocular drugExpand
Porous structure of Purevision versus Focus Night&Day and conventional hydrogel contact lenses.
The surface and bulk structures of hydrogel contact lenses that contain siloxane moieties, Purevisiontrade mark (balafilcon A) and Focus(R)Night&Daytrade mark (lotrafilcon A), were investigated.Expand

The wettability characteristics of the contact lens material, PHEMA, with respect to water have been determined by using the sessile drop, and the captive air bubble techniques of contact angleExpand
Increased tear evaporation in eyes with keratoconjunctivitis sicca.
The terms dry eye and keratoconjunctivitis sicca (KCS) imply a condition of highly reduced or absent tear film that often is not clinically demonstrable despite the presence of other signs andExpand
Platelet-derived growth factor plays a key role in proliferative vitreoretinopathy.
PURPOSE The action of growth factors is thought to make a substantial contribution to the events leading to proliferative vitreoretinopathy (PVR). In this study, the importance of platelet-derivedExpand
Long-term complications of the MAI hydrogel intrascleral buckling implant.
Seven cases in which long-term complications developed from swelling of the MAI hydrogel intrascleral buckling implant are reported herein. Micro-Fourier transform infrared spectroscopic analysis ofExpand
Long-term complications of silicone and hydrogel explants in retinal reattachment surgery.
OBJECTIVE To compare long-term complications of silicone sponge, silicone rubber, and MIRAgel used as episcleral buckling elements. METHODS Medical reports were reviewed of 805 patients withExpand
Reduced bacterial adhesion to heparin‐surface‐modified intraocular lenses
ABSTRACT Bacterial adherence to intraocular lenses (IOLs) could be the cause of endophthalmitis following cataract surgery and lens implantation. There are previous reports that heparin bound to theExpand
