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)
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)
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)
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)
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.
We present a case in which a lower eyelid avulsed during trauma, was assumed to be lost, and was fortuitously discovered within a fistulous tract in the temporal fascia. The ectopic located lower eyelid was then replanted to its original location. The replanted lower eyelid and several lashes survived. We offer that in the rare instance when eyelid tissue(More)
The study was designed to determine whether or not the rat uterine luminal epithelium exhibits a mitotic circadian rhythm and to ascertain the effect of estrogen treatment at different time periods on the uterine epithelial mitotic response. Immature rats were injected with either sesame oil (controls) or 60 ng of estradiol-17 beta at eight time periods and(More)
PURPOSE To report the first presumed case of transient light-sensitivity syndrome (TLSS) after small-incision lenticule extraction (SMILE). METHODS A 27-year-old male patient was treated for severe photophobic symptoms occurring 7 weeks after undergoing a bilateral SMILE procedure. His comprehensive ocular examination was unremarkable and his visual(More)
We report intraoperative issues, patient outcomes, and lessons learned from inadvertently contacting a Kamra corneal inlay with a neodymium:YAG (Nd:YAG) laser during a routine capsulotomy procedure for posterior capsule opacification. We also present scanning electron microscopic and histopathologic images from a series of 4 inlays implanted in postmortem(More)
