PURPOSE To compare the efficacy and tolerability of a fixed-dose combination of 0.5% moxifloxacin and 0.1% dexamethasone formulation (MFLX/DEX) vs conventional dosing with both agents dosed separately for prophylaxis after laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis (LASIK). METHODS A prospective, randomized, double-masked, parallel-group study of 64 patients(More)
PURPOSE To assess the Acanthamoeba trophozoite viability in vitro and treatment of Acanthamoeba keratitis in a hamster model using ultraviolet light A (UV-A) and riboflavin (B2). METHODS A sample of Acanthamoeba sp. cultured was transferred to a 96-well plate and exposed to B2 and the UV-A light (365 nm wavelength) at a power density of 3 mW/cm(2), 8 mm(More)
PURPOSE To compare the efficacy and tolerability of a fixed-dose combination of 0.3% gatifloxacin and 1% prednisolone formulation versus the same agents administered separately for prophylaxis in a laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) population. METHODS In a prospective, randomized, double-masked, parallel-group study, 97 patients were evaluated(More)
Bare bones particle swarm optimization (BBPSO) is a swarm algorithm that has shown potential for solving single-objective unconstrained optimization problems over continuous search spaces. However, it suffers of the premature convergence problem that means it may get trapped into a local optimum when solving multimodal problems. In order to address this(More)
Optical coherence tomography (OCT) of the anterior segment, in particular corneal OCT, has become a reliable tool for the cornea specialist, as it provides the acquisition of digital images at high resolution with a noncontact technology. In penetrating or lamellar keratoplasties, OCT can be used to assess central corneal thickness and pachymetry maps, as(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the acute effects of laser in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) upon the synthesis of proteoglycans (PGs) and collagen fibril organization in human corneal explants. METHODS Human corneas that had been rejected for transplants were obtained at Banco de Olhos of Hospital São Paulo. For each eye pair, one cornea was submitted to refractive(More)
