A prospective pilot study involving preoperative intraarterial chemotherapy with cisplatin in locally advanced oral and oropharyngeal carcinomas was initiated in March 1982. Twenty patients with TNM Stages III and IV disease underwent continuous intraarterial chemotherapy with cisplatin (90 mg/m2, at 1 mg/hour) and intravenous chemotherapy with methotrexate(More)
In this case report, we present 3 years of longitudinal, refractive component data for a young adult who became myopic and progressed in myopia (late-onset myopia, LOM) during that period. We found a high correlation between refractive error and axial length (AL). The axial elongation was a consequence of the change in the vitreous chamber depth (VCD).(More)
Based on the dual-interactive feedback model, dark focus and dark vergence designate a point on a line describing the response AC/A ratio. In order to verify the relationship between dark focus and dark vergence, we predicted the dark vergence from the measured dark focus when the measurements were based on the response-based calculated and gradient AC/A(More)
A field survey was conducted to determine the percentage of U.S. Air Force pilots and navigators required to wear corrective lenses. A random sample survey stratified by major air commands (MAJCOMS) was designed to retrieve the data. Data requested included initial (entry) visual acuity and refractive error, and current visual acuity and prescription if(More)
A retrospective survey of 5000 active aircrew records was performed at 12 United States Air Force (USAF) bases to obtain information about the prevalence of spectacle wear and refractive error. The data revealed that 27.4% of pilots and 51.5% of navigators/weapons systems operators (Nav/WSO) required spectacles when flying. Of the spectacle-wearing pilots,(More)
This study was designed to determine how well rigid gas-permeable contact lenses maintain position on the cornea under high G forces, and the effect on visual acuity. One hyperopic and five myopic subjects were fitted with lenses made from Pasifocon C material (specific gravity = 1.07). Two lens diameters (8.8-9.4 mm and 9.6-10.0 mm) were compared upon the(More)
