Intraocular lens implantation may be associated with an inflammatory syndrome which leads to corneal decompensation and cystoid macular oedema. The inflammatory aspects often do not appear striking but manifest as mild ciliary flush, mild flare, moderate cells in the anterior chamber, and moderate vitritis. The cornea will decompensate in the presence of… (More)
We measured the effects of pH changes after water washings of polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) intraocular lenses sterilized in 10% sodium hydroxide (NaOH). Whereas inserting the base-sterilized lens directly into the eye causes a large pH change in the local area of the implant, three separate washings of the NaOH-treated implant in 15 ml of water eliminates… (More)
A rather simple clinical approach has been used to derive formulas necessary to calculate the power of pupillary intracameral prosthetics and these have been applied in 150 eyes. In 136 eyes, the postoperative measurements were within one diopter of preoperative calculations.
Serial endothelial photographs were taken preoperatively and postoperatively in 200 eyes; 111 eyes contained a Rayner iris clip lens, 54 eyes contained a Fyodorov Sputnik lens, and 35 eyes had no lens. Central endothelial cell density was changed in all instances, with counts in implanted eyes declining 25 to 30%, and in nonimplanted eyes 10 to 15%. In both… (More)
During the past 8 years, 32 patients with melanoma of the choroid have been treated with cobalt-60 ophthalmic applicators. Excluding three patients lost to follow-up, 24 patients who have now been observed for at least 3 years after treatment form the subject of this study. Each application but two delivered 8,500 to 10,000 rads to the tumour apex. A second… (More)
To repair a ruptured filtering bleb, we used the conjunctiva alone, or combined with its undissected Tenon's fascia, to cover the sclerostomy site. We used mattress sutures to thread the new flap into a vertical corneal groove anterior to the sclerostomy, creating a firm, nonretracting but still sufficiently "porous" cover that maintained filtration and… (More)
