This article describes the Manitoba Cataract Waiting List Program. This program uses a centralized database to track and prioritize all patients waiting for cataract surgery. It provides an objective and reliable measure of the length of the wait, and patients on the waiting list are treated in a more equitable fashion through application of a uniform… (More)
PURPOSE Discussion of four cases of congenital corneal anesthesia with varied systemic associations and modes of presentation. Classification and systemic associations of congenital corneal anesthesia along with the importance of multi-specialty evaluation of such patients. METHODS Clinical examination of all four cases and corneal sensation assessment… (More)
Advances in intraocular lens (IOL) design have significantly improved the visual outcomes of cataract surgery. Multifocal IOLs are designed to reduce dependence on spectacles after cataract surgery, and IOLs are gaining acceptance as potential refractive surgical options in selected patients. Monofocal IOLs provide excellent distance visual function. But… (More)
Given the high costs of conducting a drug-response trial, researchers are now aiming to use retrospective analyses to conduct genome-wide association studies (GWAS) to identify underlying genetic contributions to drug-response variation. To prevent confounding results from a GWAS to investigate drug response, it is necessary to account for concomitant… (More)
Fungal keratitis is an important cause of corneal disease in the tropical world. We report a rare presentation of simultaneous bilateral corneal ulceration caused by different fungi.
