PURPOSE To assess the effect of overnight wear of a contact lens-based sensor (CLS) for monitoring of 24-hr intraocular pressure (IOP) fluctuations on central corneal thickness (CCT). MATERIALS AND METHODS  Changes in the CCT, mid-peripheral corneal thickness and central corneal radius (CCR) during overnight CLS wear in 20 eligible patients with ocular(More)
BACKGROUND Cataract and glaucoma are both common comorbidities among older patients. Combining glaucoma surgery with minimal invasive phacoemulsification (phaco) is a considerable option to treat both conditions at the same time, although the combination with filtration surgery can produce a strong inflammatory response. Combined non-penetrating procedures(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this study was to compare diurnal and nocturnal intraocular pressure (IOP) fluctuations before and after trabeculectomy, and to evaluate the potential of trabeculectomy to even out IOP peaks. MATERIALS AND METHODS Retrospectively, 35 diurnal and nocturnal IOP curves of patients (35 eyes) who underwent trabeculectomy were analyzed.(More)
Das Pterygium ist als ein trianguläres, fibrovaskuläres, hyperplastisch proliferatives Degenerationsgewebe definiert. Obwohl die Pathogenese noch nicht eindeutig geklärt ist, gibt es Hinweise, dass VEGF eine entscheidende Rolle bei dessen Entwicklung spielt. Trotz unterschiedlicher chirurgischer Ansätze bleibt bis heute die z. T. hohe postoperative(More)
