OBJECTIVE This study aimed to evaluate in rabbit eyes the effects of large positioning holes in one-piece silicone plate-haptic intraocular lenses (IOLs) with respect to security of capsular bag fixation. Mechanical strength of capsular fixation is correlated with the histologic findings of regenerating lens material and fibrous tissue ingrowth through the(More)
PURPOSE To assess the effect of relatively large positioning holes on the security of capsular bag fixation of plate-haptic silicone intraocular lenses (IOLs). SETTING Center for Research on Ocular Therapeutics and Biodevices, Department of Ophthalmology, Storm Eye Institute, Medical University of South Carolina, Charleston, South Carolina, USA.

PURPOSE To evaluate the effects of a new mini-haptic design on the strength and stability of capsular bag fixation of plate-haptic silicone intraocular lenses (IOLs) and determine whether this design encourages the growth of regenerating lens material or fibrous tissue around the haptic biomaterial and thus improves lens fixation in the capsular bag.

OBJECTIVE To compare the effects of topical 0.5% ketorolac tromethamine ophthalmic solution (Acular, Allergen Pharmaceuticals, Irvine, Calif) with topical 0.03% flurbiprofen sodium ophthalmic solution (Ocufen, Allergen Pharmaceuticals) on the inhibition of surgically induced miosis during phacoemulsification cataract surgery. DESIGN One hundred eighteen(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate over almost 2 decades the success of a component of cataract surgery that represents a critical step in reducing the incidence of posterior capsule opacification (PCO); namely, the efficacy of cortical cleanup. SETTING Center for Research on Ocular Therapeutics and Biodevices, Storm Eye Institute, Department of Ophthalmology, Medical(More)
A nanoencapsulation technique was applied to an oxygen-scavenging system, and thermal processing was investigated as an activator to trigger the oxygen-scavenging reaction. α-Tocopherol-loaded polycaprolactone (PCL) nanoparticles (NPs) were prepared using an oil-in-water emulsion solvent evaporation method. The influences of iron(II) chloride, water, and(More)
