The aim of this study is to determine the effects of posterior chamber implantation on angle structures. First, without previous knowledge of the position of lens haptics, 360° gonioscopy was performed and any changes in the angle structures were recorded. Then, the pupil was dilated to determine the exact position of the intraocular lens haptics. The(More)
In this experimental study, various foreign bodies were inserted into fresh bovine eyes, in different localizations. Twenty-one magnetic and non-magnetic foreign bodies, dimensions of which varied from 1.5 × 1.5 × 2 mm to 3.5 × 6 × 7 mm, were tried to detect by computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scanning. In addition, further(More)
PURPOSE To study the effects on visual function of glistenings and folding marks in AcrySof (Alcon) intraocular lenses (IOLs). SETTING Department of Ophthalmology, Dokuz Eylül University, School of Medicine, Izmir, Turkey. METHODS This study included 91 eyes that had phacoemulsification and in-the-bag AcrySof IOL implantation. Slitlamp, visual acuity,(More)
PURPOSE To study the effects of foldable acrylic and poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) intraocular lens (IOL) implantation on posterior capsule opacification (PCO). SETTING Department of Ophthalmology, Dokuz Eylül University School of Medicine, Izmir, Turkey. METHODS This consecutive series comprised 157 eyes having phacoemulsification with implantation(More)
PURPOSE To compare visual performance of the refractive Array SA40N and the diffractive CeeOn 811E multifocal intraocular lenses (IOLs) and to evaluate the potential benefits of combining both multifocal IOLs in the same patient. METHODS Two groups of cataract patients were unilaterally implanted with either the CeeOn diffractive (n = 10) or the Array(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the interaction of various intraocular lens (IOL) materials with commonly used dyes. MATERIALS AND METHODS One IOL of each of the five groups (polymethylmethacrylate, silicone, three-piece hydrophobic acrylic, single-piece hydrophobic acrylic and single-piece hydrophilic acrylic) was bathed in trypan blue 0.1%, fluorescein sodium 2%(More)
We evaluated the results of phacoemulsification and intraocular lens implantation in 414 eyes with long axial length and classified them according to axial length (AL): Group A: AL: 25-28 mm, Group B: AL >28 mm. Intraoperative maneuvers, pre- and postoperative photocoagulation for predisposing retinal lesions and retinal detachment rates were significantly(More)
AIM The aim of this study was to evaluate the intraocular pressure (IOP) levels of children with normal and high Body Mass Index (BMI) and to find out the potential correlation between glaucoma and obesity. METHODS Thirty obese and thirty healty children were enrolled in this study. Physical examinations and anthropometric measurements of all patients and(More)
AIM To evaluate the long-term efficacy and safety results of viscocanalostomy and phacoviscocanalostomy. METHODS The charts of 49 glaucoma patients who underwent viscocanalostomy or phacoviscocanalostomy surgery between February 1999 and August 2004 were reviewed retrospectively. Thirty-one eyes of 21 glaucoma patients who underwent filtering procedure(More)
PURPOSE To compare the corneal biomechanical properties and intraocular pressure (IOP) levels in patients with and without arcus senilis (AS). METHODS Ocular response analyzer measurements were performed on the right eyes of 37 patients with AS (group 1) and 37 control eyes (group 2). Corneal hysteresis, corneal resistance factor, Goldmann-correlated IOP,(More)
