Smokers were observed to have grossly prolonged nasal mucus clearance. It was also inferred that the persons smoking bidi/unfiltered cigarettes had significant depression of ciliary activity. The clearance was prolonged as the number of cigarettes smoked and the duration of smoking increased. It was greater among those who gave a history of nasal exhalation(More)
The effects of long term wear of PMMA contact lenses on the corneal endothelium used on a daily wear basis were determined by examining 8 patients who had been prescribed lenses in one eye only. The patients excluded unilateral aphakes. It was found that a significant reduction in the cell density and a change in the cell size and shape was induced by PMMA(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare the bioavailability of two brands of phenytoin sodium tablets available in the Indian market using Eptoin™ as the reference. MATERIALS AND METHODS A randomized, assessor-blind, three-way crossover design study was carried out over a period of 6 months after approval from the Institutional Review Board (IRB). Twenty-two healthy male(More)
In a prospective, randomized, double-blind trial, we evaluated the relative efficacy of indomethacin and flurbiprofen when used as adjuvants to routinely used mydriatics for maintenance of pupillary dilatation in patients with heavily pigmented iris undergoing extracapsular cataract extraction. The drugs were administered orally as well as topically(More)
We examined 23 consecutive cases of unilateral aphakia reporting to the contact lens office for endothelial count and morphology, corneal thickness and toricity. The fellow eye served as a control in all the cases. It was found that there is a significant drop in the central endothelial cell density, and change in the size and shape of the cells. These(More)
We prospectively studied 40 eyes with intraocular lenses and astigmatism of 4 or more diopters to evaluate the efficacy and safety of argon laser suture ablation as contrasted with surgical suture removal. Two groups of 10 eyes underwent argon laser suturotomy (ALS) 4 and 6 weeks, respectively, after surgery. Sutures were removed surgically in a third group(More)
A prospective randomized clinical trial was carried out to compare the intercapsular or the endocapsular technique of IOL insertion and conventional posterior chamber IOL insertion after can opener capsulotomy. Age and sex matched groups of 76 patients each underwent surgery by the two techniques. The corneal and the uveal reaction was evaluated on the(More)
The practice of pre-operative 'Test Patch' on any eye continues to be an important, conventional step at a number of eye infirmaries. The present study was carried out on eighty seven eyes to determine the relevance of Test Patch as a prelude to surgery. After a critical analysis of the result of investigation, it is concluded that the 'Test Patch' does not(More)
