PURPOSE To characterize the refractive, keratometric, and corneal aberrometric effect of a specific type of intracorneal ring segment (ICRS) as a function of its thickness and the preoperative conditions of the cornea. METHODS A total of 72 consecutive keratoconic eyes of 57 patients ranging in age from 15 to 68 years were retrospectively analyzed and(More)
PURPOSE To compare the intraocular pressure- (IOP-) lowering efficacy of fixed combinations travoprost 0.004%/timolol 0.5% and dorzolamide 2%/timolol 0.5% in patients with ocular hypertension or open-angle glaucoma. METHODS In this prospective, multicenter, double-masked, randomized clinical trial, 319 qualifying patients received either(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)
PURPOSE To compare real-time intraocular pressure (IOP) during laser in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) in porcine eyes using two types of microkeratomes. METHODS An interventional, prospective study of two microkeratomes: a Moria 2 (Moria group) and an IntraLase femtosecond laser (IntraLase Corp., Irvine, CA; IntraLase group). These devices were used to(More)
Current medical therapy of glaucoma aims to attain a meaningful and consistent reduction of intraocular pressure (IOP) to a predetermined level of target IOP, which will commensurate with either stability, or delayed progression of visual loss. Glaucoma is a 24-h disease and the damaging effect of elevated IOP is continuous. Therefore, it is reasonable that(More)
PURPOSE Prostaglandin F(2alpha) analogues, such as latanoprost, may cause a decrease in the extracellular matrices, such as collagen, and changes in fibrillin-1; both are components of the ciliary zonules. However, the mechanical effect of these changes on the dynamics of the ciliary zonules is unknown. This study was conducted to evaluate the effect of(More)
AIMS To study the effect of axial length on the hypotensive effect of latanoprost in primary open angle glaucoma (POAG) in a prospective, observational study. METHODS The authors measured axial length and baseline intraocular pressure (IOP) of 109 eyes with POAG, and then repeated the IOP measurements at 1, 3, and 6 months after starting treatment with(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the influence of sclerotomy use during vitrectomy (vitreous cutter, illumination probe, or infusion-line entrance) on postoperative vitreous incarceration using an experimental model of vitrectomized eye. MATERIALS AND METHODS Experimental, randomized, and observer-masked study in which 23-gauge transconjunctival sutureless vitrectomy(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the influence that vitreous incarceration may exert on the presence of postoperative conjunctival blebs over sclerotomies after transconjunctival sutureless vitrectomy (TSV). Blebs are formed by incisional leakage due to incompetent closure. METHODS Experimental study in which 23-gauge TSV was performed in 146 cadaveric pig eyes. Once(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the association between clinical parameters and the diagnosis of progression using VFI (Visual Field Index) and AGIS (Advanced Glaucoma Intervention Study) score in primary open angle glaucoma. METHODS Retrospective study of 517 visual fields of 78 eyes with primary open angle glaucoma analyzed with VFI and AGIS score. Clinical data(More)
