PURPOSE OF REVIEW This study provides an overview of the three types of corneal inlays now in use for the correction of presbyopia and reviews recently published evidence of the inlays' safety and efficacy. RECENT FINDINGS Results for corneal reshaping and refractive inlays are promising, but very limited. Small-aperture inlays are already in widespread(More)
PURPOSE To describe a novel method for calculating intraocular lens (IOL) power after myopic laser in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) without using the inaccuracies of the post-LASIK corneal power. SETTING Department of Ophthalmology, Wake Forest University Eye Center, Wake Forest University School of Medicine, Winston Salem, North Carolina, USA. METHODS(More)
OBJECTIVE The objective of this study was to describe 6-month postoperative efficacy and safety outcomes after monocular KAMRA corneal inlay implantation in emmetropic presbyopic patients. STUDY DESIGN This study followed a retrospective chart analysis. SETTING This study was performed at Hoopes Vision in Draper, UT, USA. SUBJECTS AND METHODS(More)
Clinically and histologically, there exists considerable controversy as to what constitutes a giant cell tumor. There is an increasing awareness that the term giant cell tumors should not be used indiscriminately in describing lesions of the mandible, maxilla, and facial bones which contain multinucleated giant cells. This paper reports a rare case of giant(More)
We describe the case of a presumed metastatic adenocarcinoma discovered in the conjunctival limbus of a 75-year-old male with a history of prostate adenocarcinoma. After an initial clinical diagnosis of pinguecula and unsuccessful topical steroid therapy, the lesion was excised and sent for pathological evaluation and special staining. The histopathological(More)
INTRODUCTION The visual outcome of cataract surgery in patients with a previous history of KAMRA inlay implantation is an emerging issue for which limited research exists. The purpose of this study is to describe postoperative visual outcomes in this patient population. METHODS This is a case series with retrospective chart review. Seven patients(More)
PURPOSE To report the short-term results of simultaneous photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) and small-aperture cornea inlay implantation (KAMRA) surgery in treating presbyopia. METHODS Simultaneous PRK and KAMRA inlay surgery was performed on 21 patients from July 2015 to March 2016. Follow-up exams were conducted at 1, 3, and 6 months postoperatively. Our(More)
Administration of cobra venom factor (CVF) at different time periods over a 24-h-period produced a leukocytic response which varied according to the time of day the factor was given. The resulting leukocytic circadian rhythm was achieved by a marked variation and increase in the neutrophil population.

The use of sodium hyaluronate (Healon) has made an impact on anterior segment surgery. Healon's uses are varied, but protecting the corneal endothelium and maintaining anterior chamber depth are its main contributions. I have found Healon helpful in planned extracapsular cataract surgery by allowing the nucleus to "rise" on a bed of this viscoelastic(More)
