Vision and audition represent the outside world in spatial synergy that is crucial for guiding natural activities. Input conveying eye-in-head position is needed to maintain spatial congruence because the eyes move in the head while the ears remain head-fixed. Recently, we reported that the human perception of auditory space shifts with changes in eye(More)
PURPOSE To investigate the association between ultrasound energy, expressed as cumulative dissipated energy (CDE), and changes in intraocular pressure (IOP) after uncomplicated cataract surgery by phacoemulsification. METHODS In this prospective study, nonglaucomatous subjects underwent cataract surgery by phacoemulsification. IOP was compared by(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the association between baseline angle width and laser peripheral iridotomy (LPI)-induced opening of the anterior chamber angle. METHODS Anterior segment optical coherence tomography images captured before and after LPI were analyzed to determine the angle opening distance at 250 μm (AOD250), 500 μm (AOD500), and 750 μm (AOD750) from(More)
Optical prisms shift visual space, and through adaptation over time, generate a compensatory realignment of sensory-motor reference frames. In humans, prism-induced lateral shifts of visual space produce a corresponding shift in sound localization. We recently reported that sound localization shifts towards eccentric eye position, approaching approximately(More)
Vision and audition provide spatial information about the environment to guide natural behavior. Because the eyes move in the head while the ears remain head-fixed, input conveying eye position in the head is required to maintain audiovisual congruence. Human perception of auditory space was previously shown to shift with changes in eye position, regardless(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the association between baseline measurements of iris thickness at 3 positions and change in anterior segment biometric parameters after prophylactic laser peripheral iridotomy (LPI). DESIGN Prospective clinical cohort study. PARTICIPANTS Fifty-two eyes of 52 nonglaucomatous subjects with anatomically narrow angles. METHODS(More)
PURPOSE To compare optic disc size among Caucasian, Chinese, African, Filipino and Hispanic subjects recruited from a university-based general ophthalmology clinic. METHODS In this retrospective cross-sectional study, optic disc size was calculated from fundus photographs. Differences in age, sex and spherical equivalent among the ethnic groups were(More)
PURPOSE To compare lens vault between open-angle and narrow-angle eyes in African-, Caucasian-, Hispanic-, Chinese- and Filipino-Americans. METHODS In this prospective study, 436 patients with open angle and narrow angle based on the Shaffer gonioscopic grading classification underwent anterior-segment optical coherence tomography. The Zhongshan Angle(More)
PURPOSE The aim of the study was to determine donor tissue characteristics that contribute to longer peeling times or tissue tears during peeling during Descemet membrane endothelial keratoplasty (DMEK) graft preparation. METHODS The data analyzed included donor age, gender, postmortem tissue age, contralateral eye data, peel time, and peel complications(More)
Atypical hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS) is a subtype of thrombotic microangiopathy associated with complement alternative pathway dysregulation. It is clinically characterized by a relapsing course and a poor prognosis. Multiple organ systems are commonly affected by thrombotic microangiopathy in pediatric atypical HUS; however, ocular involvement is(More)
