Results of penetrating keratoplasty in 443 eyes of 439 patients of active infective corneal ulcers, from a period of 10 years, were analyzed. All these eyes were proven refractory to maximal medical therapy for extended periods of time, in some cases more than 6 weeks. As the surgery was performed during the active stage, the outcome was not favorable(More)
BACKGROUND In this study we compared topical ofloxacin with a combination of fortified tobramycin sulphate and cefazolin sodium solutions in the treatment of culture-proved bacterial keratitis. METHODS 30 eyes of culture-proved bacterial corneal ulcers of moderate severity were included in a prospective randomized, controlled, double-masked study for(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the efficacy of mitomycin C in reducing reformation of adhesions following surgery for restrictive strabismus. METHODS Sixteen patients with restrictive strabismus resulting from trauma, retinal detachment surgery, and multiple squint surgeries were randomized to either a mitomycin group (8 patients) or a control group (8 patients).(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the cyclofusional status in normal and acquired superior oblique palsy subjects. To know the extent to which cyclodeviations can be tolerated asymptomatically. METHOD Incyclovergence and excyclovergence break points and recovery points were evaluated in 40 normal subjects and 17 cases of acquired superior oblique palsy. A Polaroid(More)
PURPOSE To determine the efficacy of 0.02% polyhexamethylene biguanide and 1% povidone iodine in experimental keratitis. METHODS Aspergillus fumigatus keratitis was induced by corneal intrastromal injection of spores in 24 healthy rabbits that were randomly divided into four groups of six rabbits each. Drugs used were 5% natamycin (standard antifungal),(More)
BACKGROUND The lack of prospective data comparing early surgery and medical management in primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG) in the developing world led us to conduct a small randomised controlled clinical trial to evaluate acceptance and effectiveness of early trabeculectomy in these patients. METHODS A total of 60 patients with moderately advanced POAG(More)
