OBJECTIVE To evaluate the effects of posterior capsular opacification (PCO) and Nd:YAG laser capsulotomy on the evaluation of peripapillary retinal nerve fibre layer (RNFL) as measured by Stratus (Carl Zeiss Meditec, Dublin, CA) optical coherence tomography (OCT). DESIGN Prospective interventional case series. PARTICIPANTS We studied 98 eyes of 89(More)
PURPOSE To compare the efficiency and safety of accelerated corneal cross-linking in pediatric patients with progressive keratoconus. METHODS In this retrospective interventional case series, 44 eyes of 38 pediatric patients with progressive keratoconus were enrolled. All consecutive patients underwent accelerated corneal cross-linking with settings of 30(More)
The aim of this study was to compare the central and peripheral pachymetric measurements determined with Sirius system and Visante OCT and evaluate the agreement between them at different stages of keratoconus. Measurements were not significantly different in all patients and subgroups and showed high correlation for the corneal thicknesses of the entire(More)
PURPOSE To report the outcomes of accelerated corneal collagen cross-linking in patients with thin corneas (minimum corneal thickness < 400 µm). METHODS Thirty-four eyes of 34 patients with a minimum corneal thickness less than 400 µm were included. All patients underwent accelerated corneal collagen cross-linking (irradiance power of 30 mW/cm² at 3(More)
Purpose. To evaluate the depth of corneal stromal demarcation line using AS-OCT and confocal microscopy after two different protocols of accelerated corneal collagen cross-linking procedures (CXL). Methods. Patients with keratoconus were divided into two groups. Peschke CXL device (Peschke CCL-VARIO Meditrade GmbH) applied UVA light with an intended(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the effect of primary and recurrent pterygium surgery on corneal wavefront aberrations. METHODS This prospective and interventional study included the 47 eyes of 47 patients with primary pterygium (primary group) and 41 eyes of 41 patients with recurrent pterygium (recurrent group). All patients underwent pterygium excision with(More)
Purpose. To report the visual, refractive, and corneal topography and wavefront aberration results of accelerated corneal cross-linking (CXL) during a 24-month follow-up. Methods. Forty-seven eyes underwent riboflavin-ultraviolet A-induced accelerated CXL treatment (30 mW/cm2 with a total dose of 7.2 joules/cm2). Uncorrected distance visual acuity (UDVA),(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this study is to report the results of 18 months of follow-up after treatment with accelerated (18 mW/cm(2)) corneal cross-linking in patients with progressive keratoconus. METHODS Forty-two eyes of 42 patients with progressive keratoconus were included in this retrospective study. All patients underwent accelerated corneal(More)
