INTRODUCTION Seasonal allergic conjunctivitis (SAC) is a highly prevalent condition that exacts a range of costs from its sufferers. The aim of this study was to examine quality of life (QoL) and economic consequences of SAC amongst private health care patients in Spain. METHODS 201 sufferers of SAC and 200 controls were recruited from four private eye(More)
PURPOSE To compare the refractive results of laser epithelial keratomileusis (LASEK) and laser in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) for the correction of low myopia. METHODS A prospective, interventional, non-randomized, observer-masked study was performed of patients with myopia of < or = -2.50 diopters (D) (cylinder < or = 1.50 D) who had undergone either(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the clinical features of keratoconus taking into consideration anterior corneal aberrations, internal astigmatism, and corneal biomechanical properties and to define a new grading system based on visual limitation. SETTING Vissum Corporation, Alicante, Spain. DESIGN Retrospective case series. METHODS This multicenter study(More)
This review evaluates the outcomes of intrastromal corneal ring segment (ICRS) implantation for the treatment of keratoconus considering a new grading system based on the preoperative visual impairment of the patient. Additionally, a five-year follow-up analysis of patients with stable and progressive keratoconus is performed in order to assess the long(More)
Mitomycin C has played a deciding role in the current revival of excimer laser surface ablation techniques. We review the literature regarding mechanism of action of mitomycin C, histological effects on the cornea, and indications, dose, exposure time, and toxicity of mitomycin C in corneal refractive surgery. Mitomycin C is an alkylating agent with(More)
PURPOSE To analyze corneal astigmatic changes after implantation of intrastromal corneal ring segments (ICRS) in keratoconic eyes using the Alpins vectorial method. SETTING Vissum Corporation, Alicante, Spain. METHODS Keraring ICRS were implanted in eyes with a diagnosis of keratoconus. One of 3 surgeons performed the ICRS implantations using(More)
PURPOSE To compare the results of laser subepithelial keratomileusis (LASEK) and laser in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) for the correction of moderate myopia. METHODS We performed a retrospective, single-masked, interventional study of 80 consecutive eyes. Forty eyes that had undergone LASEK to correct myopia of -2.0 to -6.0 D were compared with age and(More)
OBJECTIVE To analyze the relationship between intraocular pressure (IOP) and visual field loss in patients with primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG) and in those with pseudoexfoliative glaucoma (PEXG). DESIGN A cross-sectional, observational study. PARTICIPANTS Thirty-one patients with PEXG and 31 patients with POAG that was newly diagnosed were included(More)
PURPOSE To study the long-term effectiveness and factors involved in successful needling of failed filtration blebs with mitomycin C (MMC). MATERIALS AND METHODS We conducted a prospective, nonrandomized comparative trial that included 34 consecutive patients (34 eyes) who underwent mitomycin C needling of a failed filtering bleb after trabeculectomy(More)
AIM To compare the 24-h intraocular pressure (IOP) control obtained with the bimatoprost-timolol fixed combination (BTFC) versus latanoprost in newly diagnosed, previously untreated exfoliation syndrome (XFS) or exfoliative glaucoma (XFG) patients with baseline morning IOP greater than 29 mm Hg. METHODS One eye of 41 XFS/XFG patients who met inclusion(More)
