PURPOSE To evaluate the indications, visual outcomes, and complication rate after implantation of a posterior chamber iris-claw aphakic intraocular lens (IOL). SETTING Department of Ophthalmology, University Medicine Charité Berlin, Berlin, Germany. DESIGN Retrospective case series. METHODS Eyes without adequate capsule support had posterior chamber(More)
Fuchs' heterochromic cyclitis (FHC) is a common intraocular disease of uncertain etiology that has recently been related to rubella virus (RV) infection. We investigated the synthesis of RV-specific IgG using aqueous humor and serum samples from 63 consecutive patients with FHC. In addition, intraocular immunoglobulin G production against herpes simplex(More)
PURPOSE In this retrospective study, the visual outcomes and postoperative complications after Descemet stripping automated endothelial keratoplasty (DSAEK) and Descemet membrane endothelial keratoplasty (DMEK) in the fellow eye were compared. The patient's satisfaction was evaluated. METHODS A retrospective analysis of 10 patients, who underwent DSAEK in(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to analyze the clinical outcome and higher-order aberrations (HOAs) after 1.4-mm biaxial microincision cataract surgery (B-MICS) and implantation of a new aspheric intraocular lens (IOL). MATERIAL AND METHODS A total of 157 eyes of 106 patients were enrolled in this prospective, single-center study. The B-MICS (1.4(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the indications, visual outcomes, and complication rate after posterior implantation of an iris-claw aphakic intraocular lens (IOL) in subluxated lenses due to Marfan syndrome. METHODS Eyes without adequate capsular support had posterior chamber iris-claw aphakic IOL implantation between 2006 and 2012. RESULTS This retrospective(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the long-term safety and efficacy of a refractive phakic intraocular lens (pIOL) (PRL) to correct moderate to high myopia. SETTING Department of Ophthalmology, University Medicine Charité Berlin, Berlin, Germany. DESIGN Retrospective cohort study. METHODS Uncorrected (UDVA) and corrected (CDVA) distance visual acuities, refraction,(More)
To investigate outcome and postoperative complications in patients undergoing isolated DMEK in phakic eyes compared to patients undergoing DMEK combined with cataract surgery (triple procedure). A retrospective analysis of 13 eyes undergoing DMEK in phakic eyes and 54 eyes undergoing triple procedure. Intraoperative and postoperative complications were(More)
PURPOSE To compare the visual outcomes and postoperative complications in patients undergoing penetrating keratoplasty (PKP) in 1 eye followed by Descemet membrane endothelial keratoplasty (DMEK) in their fellow eye. METHODS A retrospective analysis of 11 patients, who underwent a PKP procedure first in 1 eye and then a DMEK surgery in their fellow eye,(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the indications, visual outcomes, and complication rate after posterior implantation of an iris-claw aphakic intraocular lens (IOL) in children. DESIGN Noncomparative retrospective cohort study. METHODS setting: Institutional practice. patients/intervention procedures: Seven eyes of 4 children without adequate capsular support had(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate clinical outcomes and complications after Descemet membrane endothelial keratoplasty (DMEK) in a child. METHODS A 12-year-old boy with Kearns-Sayre syndrome (chronic progressive external ophthalmoplegia, cardiac conduction block, and pigmentary retinal degeneration) and corneal endothelial dysfunction was successfully treated with(More)
