Impression cytology refers to the application of a cellulose acetate filter to the ocular surface to remove the superficial layers of the ocular surface epithelium. These cells can then be subjected to histological, immunohistological, or molecular analysis. Proper technique is essential as the number of cells sampled can vary considerably. Generally two to(More)
UNLABELLED A nationwide postal survey of all consultant ophthalmologists in the United Kingdom was conducted to determine attitudes and techniques of cataract surgery trainers, identify trainer-related factors that determine surgical opportunity, and ascertain whether trainers had received adequate training in how to teach surgery. The response rate was 43%(More)
We describe 2 cases of contact lens-related microbial keratitis caused by infection with Pseudomonas aeruginosa in which perineural infiltrates were observed at presentation. In both cases, examination by confocal microscopy was negative for Acanthamoeba cysts but bacterial cultures and microscopy of corneal scrapings were positive for P aeruginosa. Both(More)
OBJECTIVE The influence of sex hormones on intraocular pressure (IOP) has been the focus of recent debate. Previous studies investigating the effects of hormone therapy (HT) on IOP in postmenopausal women have produced conflicting results but have been limited by small numbers of participants. The aim of our study was to compare IOP in women without(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the distribution of cell membrane proteins and extracellular matrix proteins around the limbal epithelial crypt (LEC) compared with adjacent limbus and corneal epithelium. METHODS Serial histological sections of human corneoscleral limbus rims were stained with antibodies of interest by standard immunohistochemistry. RESULTS(More)
Tamsulosin is an alpha(1)-adrenergic antagonist known to be linked with intraoperative floppy-iris syndrome (IFIS), which is characterized by iris atonicity and a propensity toward progressive intraoperative pupil constriction and iris prolapse. We present 2 strategies for managing IFIS-associated iris prolapse. Placement of a single subincisional iris(More)
A myopic 43-year-old woman with early nuclear sclerotic cataract developed more than 11.0 diopters (D) of astigmatism over a 6-month period. This was found to be lenticular in origin. Phacoemulsification with intraocular lens implantation was performed, resulting in residual astigmatism of 0.75 D. To our knowledge, this is the first case of rapidly(More)
Iris prolapse is not an uncommon occurrence during cataract surgery. It usually occurs through the main incision during hydrodissection and is commonly associated with floppy-iris syndrome; however, it can manifest in cases with no known predisposition and can occur at any stage during surgery. The mechanism is explained by the Bernoulli principle and its(More)
BACKGROUND Inferior conjunctivochalasis is common, but is rarely severe enough to require conjunctival excision. This report describes a patient with severe conjunctivochalasis who was subsequently diagnosed with Ehlers Danlos Syndrome, Classic Type. CASE PRESENTATION A patient suffering from foreign body sensation, frequent blinking and bilateral(More)
All published literature to date has identified the human corneo-scleral limbus as the site within which stem cells of the ocular surface reside. Recently we described a unique anatomical structure at the limbus, termed the Limbal Epithelial Crypt (LEC) that has features of a putative stem cell niche. In this study we examined infant limbus tissue (donor(More)
