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 serve… Expand
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 drug… Expand

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
Wettability of hydrogels. I. Poly (2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate).
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 angle… Expand
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 and… Expand
