PURPOSE Loteprednol etabonate (LE) is approved by the US FDA in a suspension and ointment form (0.5%) for the treatment of postoperative ocular inflammation. This study examined the gel formulation of LE, an improved, nonsettling formulation with a lower preservative level and a more physiologic pH. PATIENTS AND METHODS This multicenter, double-masked,(More)
BACKGROUND Retinoids regulate a variety of biological processes and play an important role in cell differentiation and proliferation. All-trans retinoid acid (atRA) is known to inhibit smooth muscle cell growth and thus is supposed to have favorable effects on the incidence of restenosis after percutaneous coronary interventions. The broad biological(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to compare the long-term outcomes of ab externo trabeculotomy in primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG) and uveitic glaucoma (UG). DESIGN This was a retrospective single-center case series study. PARTICIPANTS Twenty eyes of 17 patients with POAG and 22 eyes of 18 patients with UG were included in this study. PATIENTS(More)
We describe a new surgical technique for treating traumatic aniridia with aphakia and its results in a small consecutive case series. We attached a 3-piece acrylic intraocular lens through the haptics to a customized silicone iris prosthesis. The combined implant was inserted through a 5-mm incision and fixated with a transscleral suture in the ciliary(More)
PURPOSE Abnormalities of blood vessel anatomy, morphology, and ratio can serve as important diagnostic markers for retinal diseases such as AMD or diabetic retinopathy. Large cohort studies demand automated and quantitative image analysis of vascular abnormalities. Therefore, we developed an analytical software tool to enable automated standardized(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate a digital high-speed camera combined with digital morphometry software for dynamic measurements of phakic intraocular lens movements to observe kinetic influences, particularly in fast direction changes and at lateral end points. MATERIALS AND METHODS A high-speed camera taking 300 frames per second observed movements of eight(More)
PURPOSE To report the visual and morphological outcomes following intravitreal bevacizumab in neovascular age-related macular degeneration (nAMD) with submacular, predominantly hemorrhagic, lesions. METHODS Retrospective study of patients with a follow-up after 1 year. All eyes with submacular hemorrhages larger than 50% of the total lesion size and(More)
