BACKGROUND We present a retrospective evaluation of the clinical outcome and complications associated with intravitreal injection of unaltered triamcinolone acetonide in conjunction with pars plana vitrectomy and silicone oil injection for the treatment of complicated proliferative diabetic retinopathy with tractional retinal detachment and severe(More)
OBJECTIVE To describe the clinical presentation and course of patients who developed keratitis due to Fusarium while wearing nontherapeutic soft contact lenses. METHODS A retrospective review of microbiologic records from January 1, 2004, through April 15, 2006, was performed, identifying all patients with corneal ulceration and a culture positive for(More)
PURPOSE To report 5 cases of fungal keratitis associated with contact lens wear that resolved or significantly improved without antifungal therapy. METHODS Observational case report of 5 patients with a history of contact lens wear who presented with infectious keratitis. Two patients had growth of fungal species on corneal microbiologic cultures, and of(More)
PURPOSE To report the potential risk of severe positive vitreous pressure during combined penetrating keratoplasty, cataract extraction, and intraocular lens implantation (triple procedure), using positive end-expiratory pressure (PEEP) during general endotracheal anesthesia. METHODS This is a case report of a 32-year-old man and a 48-year-old man who(More)
PURPOSE To analyze the corneal wavefront higher order aberrations (HOAs) after penetrating keratoplasty and selective suture removal. METHODS All patients undergoing penetrating keratoplasty by the same surgeon (R.K.F.) using identical suturing technique were retrospectively identified. Corneal HOAs were calculated at the week 6, week 10, 6-month, and(More)
PURPOSE To determine how chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and mechanical ventilation time affect corneal donor endothelial cell density (ECD) and transplant suitability. DESIGN Retrospective cohort study. METHODS Setting: Institutional. STUDY POPULATION Total of 39 679 cornea donor eyes from SightLife Eye Bank between 2012 and 2016.(More)
Importance The rate of types 1 and 2 diabetes in the United States is increasing. The effect of diabetes on corneal donor tissue is unknown. Objectives To determine the association between endothelial cell density and suitability for transplantation in cornea donors with type 1 or 2 diabetes and determine the effect of diabetes on technician-induced(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate post-phacoemulsification corneal edema using central corneal thickness (CCT) and central corneal volume (CCV) derived from Scheimpflug imaging, optical coherence tomography (OCT), and ultrasound (US) pachymetry and to correlate CCV with phacoemulsification parameters.
