PURPOSE To gain insight into the mechanisms underlying the transforming growth factor-beta induced (TGFBI)-related corneal dystrophies and the influence of the Arg555Trp and Thr538Pro, TGFBI mutations on C-terminal cleavage and cell endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress were investigated. METHODS The Arg555Trp and Thr538Pro mutations known to be associated(More)
BACKGROUND Pollen is the most common aeroallergen to cause conjunctivitis. In this study, we established a short ragweed (SRW)-induced mouse model of allergic conjunctivitis (AC) and aimed to explore the potential role of miR-146a and its downstream molecules in the development of ocular allergic inflammation. MATERIAL AND METHODS The mouse model of(More)
The purpose of this study was to investigate the clinical characteristic and visual outcome of siderosis bulbi with retained intraocular foreign body (IOFB) and to validate the predictive value of the Ocular Trauma Score (OTS) in siderosis bulbi. Certain numerical values rendered to the OTS variables at present were summated (Table 1) and converted into 5(More)
Pediatric posttraumatic endophthalmitis (PTE) is a rare but serious disease that frequently has a poor visual prognosis. To date, only a few English studies have focused on this disease. We perform a systematic review of the Chinese literature on pediatric PTE and describe the epidemiology, management, causative organisms, and visual acuity outcomes of(More)
Detection of progression is paramount to the clinical management of glaucoma. Our goal is to compare the performance of standard automated perimetry (SAP), short-wavelength automated perimetry (SWAP), and frequency-doubling technology (FDT) perimetry in monitoring glaucoma progression.Longitudinal data of paired SAP, SWAP, and FDT from 113 eyes with primary(More)
Posterior polymorphous corneal dystrophy (PPCD) is an extremely rare, bilateral, and inherited disorder, which affects the corneal endothelium and Descemet's membrane. Few PPCD cases in Chinese patients have been published so far. As far as we know, there are few studies which focused on the associations between PPCD and high myopia either. Here we report a(More)
The mouse model has been widely employed to explore the mysteries of myopia. For now, existing techniques for induction of experimental myopia in mice can be classified into three types: (1) devices directly glued to the fur; (2) devices attached using a combination of glue and sutures; (3) devices attached using a skull-mounted apparatus. These techniques(More)
