OBJECTIVE To study on the distribution of bacterial keratitis isolates and the resistance to antibiotics in China from 2001 to 2004. METHODS 1985 specimens from the bacterial keratitis at the Beijing Tong Ren Eye Center were cultured and identified. In vitro susceptibility testing of positive isolates to antibiotics was determined by the Kirby-Bauer disk(More)
PURPOSE To identify the genotype of 18S ribosomal RNA gene (18S rDNA, Rns) of the Acanthamoeba strains isolated from patients with keratitis in northern China. METHODS The genus-specific primers JDP1 and JDP2 were used for the amplification of the amplimer ASA.S1. With DNA PCR and sequencing, Rns genotypes were identified according to the DF3 sequence(More)
AIMS To study the distribution and shifting trends of bacterial keratitis. METHODS The data of 2220 corneal isolates from 1 January 1989 to 31 December 1998 were reviewed retrospectively. RESULTS Positive culture was recovered in 490 isolates. Gram positive cocci and Gram negative bacilli represented 51% and 39.4%, respectively. Pseudomonas aeruginosa(More)
PURPOSE We compared the regeneration characteristics of injured corneal subbasal nerve fibers (CSNFs) and keratocyte reaction following LASIK with a femtosecond laser (FS-LASIK), One Use-Plus Sub-Bowman's keratomileusis (OUP-SBK), and M2 90 microkeratome to provide a more suitable treatment strategy. METHODS A total of 22 eyes that underwent FS-LASIK, 32(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate the etiological characteristics of Chlamydia trachomatis conjunctivitis among resident students at primary schools in the Qinghai Tibetan area in order to understand the distribution of C. trachomatis and other pathogenic microorganisms, to detect the isolation rate of infectious pathogens, and to provide an evidence(More)
Trachoma is one of the most widespread blinding eye diseases, which is harmful to human visual health. The efforts to prevent and control trachoma in China can be divided into three periods, i.e., highly epidemic period, research on pathogenesis and control of trachoma, and blinding trachoma elimination and epidemiological evaluation. In 1956, Prof. Feifan(More)
Morbidity associated with conjunctivitis is higher in developing countries, particularly among children, because of the poorer standards of living (Azari and Barney, 2013; Yetman and Coody, 1997). Presently, little is known regarding the microorganisms that cause conjunctivitis in the remote area of Chinese Tibet. In particular, it is difficult to monitor(More)
A total of 26 myopic patients (52 eyes) underwent laser in situ keratomileusis. In vivo confocal microscopy revealed that most of the regenerated corneal subbasal nerve fibers in the corneal flap originated from the stump of corneal subbasal nerve fibers outside the ablation zone and extended towards the center of the cornea in all patients. Meanwhile, new(More)
