PURPOSE To compare the visual outcomes of aspheric toric intraocular lens (IOL) implantation and limbal relaxing incisions (LRI) for management of coexisting age-related cataracts and astigmatism. METHODS In this prospective study, sixty eyes of 60 patients with visually significant cataract and coexisting corneal astigmatism ≤3 dioptres (D) were(More)
PURPOSE OF REVIEW Descemet's membrane detachment (DMD) is commonly encountered after intraocular surgery and ocular trauma. Although its occurrence has been known for a long time, the disease course and its optimal management is not yet fully understood. This review aims to present an update on current trends in diagnosis and management of DMD. RECENT(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the clinical and topographic effects after accelerated corneal collagen cross-linking (CXL) in keratoconus. METHODS This was a prospective interventional study in 25 eyes of 24 Asian patients with keratoconus, where 10 eyes in group 1 had mild to moderate keratoconus with the steepest keratometry reading (Kmax) < 58 diopters (D), and(More)
BACKGROUND To evaluate the ophthalmic manifestations and risk factors for mortality in HIV patients in the post-highly active anti-retrovirus therapy (HAART) era. DESIGN Retrospective study. SAMPLES 151 patients with HIV infection. METHODS Review of all HIV patients who have attended the Hong Kong Eye Hospital between 2000 and 2007. MAIN OUTCOME(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the role of spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SDOCT) to measure corneal thickness during accelerated corneal crosslinking (CXL). METHODS Intraoperative pachymetry was performed using SDOCT and ultrasound pachymetry (USP) in 6 eyes of 6 patients with keratoconus. Pachymetry readings were obtained at baseline, after(More)
We compared one-year outcomes of conventional (3 mW/cm(2), 365-nm ultraviolet-A light, 30 minutes) and accelerated (18 mW/cm(2), 365-nm ultraviolet-A light, 5 minutes) collagen crosslinking (CXL) in patients with progressive keratoconus. Main outcome measures were change in keratometry, uncorrected visual acuity (UCVA), and best-corrected visual acuity(More)
To analyse the outcomes of phacoemulsification in extreme axial myopia Consecutive cases of phacoemulsification in eyes with axial length ≥ 30.0 mm from January 1, 2010 to Dec 31, 2013 in a tertiary referral eye hospital were retrospectively reviewed. A single intraocular lens (IOL) type was used for all cases. Main outcome measures included perioperative(More)
Aims: To evaluate the epidemiology of dry eye syndrome in a population-based sample in Hong Kong and to assess the correlation between findings from Ocular Surface Disease Index questionnaire and Schirmer’s test. Method: In this cross-sectional study in a health promot ion program, a l l subjec ts were asked to complete the Ocular Surface Disease Index(More)
PURPOSE To report a case of infectious keratitis after small incision lenticule extraction (SMILE) treated with collagen cross-linking with photoactivated riboflavin (PACK-CXL). METHODS Case report and literature review. RESULTS A patient presented with culture-proven bacterial keratitis 5 days after SMILE was treated with fortified topical antibiotics(More)
