PURPOSE To evaluate the efficacy and safety of commercially available latanoprost 0.005% given every evening versus timolol 0.5% and dorzolamide 2% fixed combination (TDFC) given twice daily to white Greeks with primary open-angle glaucoma and ocular hypertensive patients. DESIGN A single-masked, two-center, crossover comparison with two 6-week treatment(More)
Small incision cataract surgery has several advantages over conventional surgery, including faster postoperative visual rehabilitation. We evaluated 100 consecutive cases of no-stitch, small incision surgery with a square sclerocorneal tunnel and a flexible intraocular lens. Permanent self-sealing of the wound seemed to increase intraoperative safety(More)
AbstractAims To compare the diurnal intraocular pressure (IOP) efficacy and safety of timolol vslatanoprost in subjects with exfoliation glaucoma (XFG).Methods A 3-month prospective, single-masked, active-controlled, parallel comparison performed in six centres in Greece that randomized subjects in a 1 : 1 ratio to either latanoprost in the evening (2000(More)
PURPOSE To study surgically induced astigmatism (SIA) after a sutureless 5.0 mm sclerocorneal valve incision. SETTING Department of Ophthalmology, University of Vienna, Vienna, Austria. METHODS This study evaluated SIA in 34 cases of sutureless cataract surgery with a 5.0 mm superior sclerocorneal valve incision and implantation of a poly(methyl(More)
In this prospective study we used the oculopressions-tonometry (OPT) for determination of the aqueous humor outflow facility (C). 53 phacic eyes with glaucoma simplex were examined pre- and postoperatively. One hour after operation C decreased from 0.15 to 0.14. In correlation to this fact the IOD increased. After 7 days C was higher already than(More)
PURPOSE To determine whether sutureless small incision cataract surgery reduces induced astigmatism over the long term. SETTING University Eye Hospital, Vienna, Austria. METHODS In a prospective study, we investigated surgically induced astigmatism in 63 cases of no-stitch, small incision cataract surgery with a 4.0 mm square sclerocorneal tunnel and(More)
SCOPE OF THE STUDY We studied a new intraocular lens implant with a high-refractive silicone optic and prolene C-loops. Suitability for folding and implantation with the recommended instruments as well as its performance as a capsular bag implant were evaluated. The impact of the self-sealing wound construction used on postoperative corneal stability was(More)
We evaluated the performance of the PhacoFlex silicone lens with open polypropylene loops and the disposable Prodigy inserter in a series of 100 consecutive no-stitch cases. Loading the lens into the PRO-1A inserter model was easy, as was inserting it through a 4 x 4 mm self-sealing sclerocorneal tunnel incision. If the chamber was deep and the capsular(More)
We did a prospective study of 49 eyes (36 patients) with coexisting cataract and glaucoma who had combined trabeculectomy, phacoemulsification, and implantation of a folded polyHema intraocular lens through the trabeculectomy opening. Preoperatively, intraocular pressure (IOP) was controlled (< 20 mm Hg) in 13 eyes on a mean of 2.2 medications and(More)
