PURPOSE To evaluate the incidence, severity, and factors related to drug-induced keratoepitheliopathy in eyes using antiglaucoma eye drops. PATIENTS AND METHODS In a cross-sectional study, 749 eyes from 427 patients who had used one or more antiglaucoma eye drops were examined at Niigata University Medical and Dental Hospital or related facilities. The(More)
PURPOSE To determine whether differences in the optic disc topography and those in the relation between the optic disc topography and visual field indices exist between Japanese patients with primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG) and normal-tension glaucoma (NTG). METHODS The study included consecutive Japanese patients with POAG (n = 60) or NTG (n = 60).(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS To analyse quantitatively the anterior segment configuration in eyes with nanophthalmos before and after cataract surgery. METHODS This was a retrospective, non-comparative, interventional case series. Eleven eyes in eight patients with nanophthalmos who underwent phacoemulsification and intraocular lens implantation were identified from(More)
To verify the advantages of trabeculotomy combined with phacoemulsification, intraocular lens implantation and sinusotomy (PTOS) in eyes with exfoliation glaucoma (XFG) and a coexisting cataract. Sixty-six eyes of 62 Japanese XFG patients that received either PTOS, phacotrabeculectomy (PTE) or MMC trabeculectomy (LEC) were followed for up to 36 months at(More)
PURPOSES We studied the control of intraocular pressure(IOP) by various types of blebs after non-penetrating trabeculectomy(NPT) and the difference between bleb formation after penetrating trabeculectomy(PT) and that after NPT. METHODS The filtering blebs of 45 yeys from 40 patients after NPT were studied using ultrasound biomicroscopy. They were grouped(More)
PURPOSE NT-4000 (Nidek Co. Ltd., Gamagori, Japan) is a new non-contact tonometer (NCT) equipped with pulse synchronous measurement function that can measure intraocular pressure (IOP) synchronized with the ocular pulse. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the usefulness of NT-4000 in normal subjects and in patients with glaucoma and ocular(More)
