PURPOSE To determine if the intraocular pressure (IOP) effect of pilocarpine at various concentrations is additive to that of bimatoprost and to assess the tolerability of this combination. METHODS This was a randomized, prospective trial of patients with IOP > 21 mm Hg following appropriate medication washout. For all visits IOP was measured at 9:00 AM(More)
PURPOSE We used EyeSys videokeratography to evaluate corneal shape changes induced by conductive keratoplasty, a procedure that utilizes radio frequency energy to alter corneal shape to correct hyperopia. METHODS Follow-up data were available for 19 eyes (out of 24 eyes of 13 patients). Preoperative spherical hyperopia ranged from +0.75 to +3.25 D with(More)
