OBJECTIVE To evaluate the safety and efficacy of corneal ultraviolet A/riboflavin collagen cross-linking (CXL) in patients with mild-to-moderate keratoconus. DESIGN Retrospective cohort study. PARTICIPANTS Thirty-nine eyes from 30 patients who underwent CXL for progressive mild and moderate keratoconus were included. METHODS Clinical charts for(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the efficacy of intrastromal corneal ring segments implantation followed by same-day photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) and ultraviolet-A/riboflavin collagen cross-linking (CXL) in patients with keratoconus. METHODS Four patients (five eyes) were included in the study. All patients first underwent femtosecond laser-enabled placement of(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare combined intrastromal corneal ring segment implantation with same-day ultraviolet-A/riboflavin corneal collagen cross-linking (ICRS-CXL) versus ICRS implantation alone in patients with corneal ectasia. DESIGN Retrospective comparative study. PARTICIPANTS Sixty-six eyes from 54 patients with corneal ectasia were included in the(More)
A postpartum mare and foal were presented for evaluation of fever and lethargy in the mare. The mare was diagnosed with endometritis and initially responded well to treatment. On the second day of hospitalization, the mare developed renal insufficiency characterized by oliguria, azotemia, hemolysis, and thrombocytopenia. Concurrently, the foal developed(More)
Purpose Threshold concepts are counterintuitive and the knowledge they convey can be troublesome. Attaining threshold concepts is often described as the 'light bulb moment' or 'when the penny dropped'. This study explores whether attaining the skill of Capsulorrhexis represents a 'Threshold Concept' in the microsurgical training of ophthalmic trainees and(More)
Astrocyte hypertrophy, associated with neuronal degeneration, has been reported in aging rat hippocampus. Dietary restriction throughout life (restriction of calories without decrease in essential nutrients) increases average and maximal lifespans in rodents. In the present study, the effect of caloric restriction on age-related changes in the maximal(More)
