The present report studied the contingent negative variation during Gap and Non-Gap conditions using visual stimulation and manual responses. The reaction times during the Gap condition were facilitated compared with those of the Non-Gap condition. The contingent negative variation component was obtained during the preparatory period from electrodes placed(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate efficacy, predictability, and safety of Artisan toric phakic intraocular lens (Ophtec, Groningen, The Netherlands) implantation for the correction of astigmatism higher than 2 diopters. DESIGN Interventional case series. METHODS This prospective study included 27 eyes of 16 patients with a mean preoperative spherical equivalent of(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate efficacy, predictability and safety of Artisan-Verysise intraocular lens (IOL) secondary implantation for aphakia correction. SETTING Instituto de Microcirugía Ocular, and Autonoma University of Barcelona, Barcelona, Spain. METHODS Uncorrected visual acuity, best spectacle-corrected visual acuity (BSCVA), manifest refraction,(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate efficacy, predictability, stability and safety of adjustable refractive surgery (ARS) by combining a phakic intraocular lens (IOL) (Artisan lens 6-mm optical zone [OZ]) and laser in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) (6.5 mm OZ) for the correction of myopia greater than -15.00 diopters (D). DESIGN Noncomparative interventional case series. (More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the results of combined surgery, implantation of an Artisan phakic iris claw intraocular lens (IOL) followed by laser in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) to correct high myopia. METHODS A prospective study of 6 patients (8 eyes) with high myopia who had Artisan phakic IOL implantation followed by LASIK was undertaken. The IOL was a standard(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the efficacy, predictability, and stability of a combined procedure, arcuate keratotomy and laser in situ keratomileusis (LASIK), for the correction of high astigmatism. SETTING Instituto de Microcirugía Ocular (IMO), Barcelona, Spain. METHODS Fifteen eyes of 11 patients with naturally occurring astigmatism (NOA) (86. 66%) or(More)
We describe a phacoemulsification technique for soft and medium-hard cataracts to decrease phaco time and enhance the safety of the procedure. After conventional hydrodissection and hydrodelamination are performed, a 15- or 30-degree phaco tip is positioned on the peripheral lens beside the capsulorhexis edge and in contact with the nucleus-epinucleus(More)
A flow cell with a radial distribution of four all-solid-state ion selective electrodes (ISEs), or alternatively three ISEs and one reference electrode, was designed and optimized for mass production. The radial distribution of the electrodes reduces the cell volume and is expected to minimize cross-contamination between different electrodes. Two different(More)
The present study investigated reaction time (RT) and event-related potential (ERP) differences between gap and step conditions using visual stimulation and manual responses. RTs during the gap condition were facilitated with respect to those of the step condition. The ERPs, which were obtained from electrodes placed at 58 scalp sites, showed differences(More)
