PURPOSE There is evidence that altered optic nerve head (ONH) blood flow may play a role in the development and progression of glaucoma. In the present study, the baseline characteristics were examined in a study population participating in a clinical trial in which the ocular hemodynamic effects of timolol and dorzolamide were compared. METHODS One(More)
PURPOSE Automated image-analysis systems for objective assessment of posterior capsule opacification (PCO) depend on good image quality. One major drawback is the existence of light-reflection artifacts (Purkinje spots) in retroillumination images of the posterior capsule. Therefore, a software algorithm was developed that removes these artifacts by fusion(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the reproducibility of a new colour test, using the Chromatometer CM3. METHODS Twenty healthy subjects were recruited at the Department of Ophthalmology, at the Medical University of Vienna. A total of 40 eyes were tested. Both eyes were tested separately with the Chromatometer CM3. The colour test was repeated after several days. Each(More)
PURPOSE To observe and analyze the daily and weekly changes in morphology and size of Elschnig pearls in eyes with after-cataract. METHODS Pseudophakic eyes with pronounced regeneratory posterior capsule opacification (PCO) were included in this prospective study. High-resolution retroillumination images were taken, and the changes in size and shape of(More)
— Nowadays, Posterior Capsule Opacification (PCO) is a common postoperative complication of cataract surgery. The rate of incidence and the intensity of PCO are affected by factors such as type and shape of implanted intraocular lens (IOL), cataract surgical techniques and etc. Clinical quantification of PCO is so subjective that evaluating the effects of(More)
