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)
Posterior capsule opacification (PCO) remains the most common long-term complication after cataract surgery. Many studies have attempted to identify factors that influence the development of PCO. The aim of this systematic review based on Cochrane methodology was to summarize the effects of intraocular lens (IOL) geometry, including modifications of the IOL(More)
PURPOSE To compare the posterior capsule opacification (PCO) inhibiting effect of the sharp posterior optic edge design of the Sensar OptiEdge AR40e intraocular lens (IOL) with that of the double-round edge design of the Sensar AR40 IOL over a period of 3 years. SETTING Department of Ophthalmology, Medical University of Vienna, Vienna, Austria. METHODS(More)
PURPOSE To measure the shift of an accommodating plate-haptic intraocular lens (IOL) along the visual axis induced by ciliary muscle contraction after application of pilocarpine. SETTING Department of Ophthalmology, Medical University of Vienna, Vienna, Austria. METHODS Fifty-four eyes of 28 patients with age-related cataract comprised this prospective(More)
PURPOSE To measure the axial movement of an accommodating intraocular lens (IOL) induced by ciliary muscle contraction after application of pilocarpine. DESIGN Randomized, controlled, patient- and examiner-masked trial with intrapatient comparison. PARTICIPANTS AND CONTROLS One hundred ten eyes of 55 patients with age-related bilateral cataract.

PURPOSE To compare three different methods of measuring corneal thickness (CT) and anterior chamber depth (ACD). DESIGN Prospective clinical trial (Medical University of Vienna, Austria). METHODS Central CT (CCT), CT at four peripheral points, and central ACD were measured in 88 eyes of 44 healthy subjects with the Pentacam (rotating Scheimpflug camera;(More)
BACKGROUND Posterior capsule opacification (PCO) remains the most common long-term complication after cataract surgery. It can be treated by Nd:YAG laser capsulotomy, however, this may lead to other complications and laser treatment is not available in large parts of the developing world. Therefore, many studies try to find factors influencing the(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the interexaminer and intraexaminer reliability of corneal thickness, anterior chamber depth (ACD), and crystalline lens thickness measurements using a commercially available anterior segment optical biometry instrument (ACMaster, Carl Zeiss Meditec) based on partial coherence interferometry (PCI). SETTING Medical University of Vienna,(More)
PURPOSE To compare preoperative and postoperative measurements of the axial length (AL) performed with the IOLMaster (Carl Zeiss Meditec) to evaluate the effect of nuclear cataract on the optical biometry. SETTING Department of Ophthalmology, Medical University of Vienna, Vienna, Austria. METHODS In 245 consecutive eyes of 162 patients scheduled for(More)
PURPOSE To study the change in postoperative position of an angulated, 3-piece, foldable acrylic intraocular lenses (IOLs) and evaluate the effect of a sharp posterior optic edge compared with that of a round optic edge on the change in postoperative anterior chamber depth (ACD).
