PURPOSE To evaluate corneal reinnervation, and the corresponding corneal sensitivity and keratocyte density after small incision lenticule extraction (SMILE) and femtosecond laser in situ keratomileusis (FS-LASIK). METHODS In this prospective, non-randomized observational study, 18 patients (32 eyes) received SMILE surgery, and 22 patients (42 eyes)(More)
BACKGROUND The aim was to evaluate the repeatability of a new optical low-coherence reflectometric device Lenstar, as well as its agreement with the IOL Master and the Pentacam-HR system in myopes. METHODS In a prospective study, 56 eyes of 28 myopes were examined with the Lenstar, the IOL Master and the Pentacam-HR system. The repeatability of the(More)
PURPOSE To compare axial elongation between myopic orthokeratology (OK) contact lens and spectacle wearers, and to investigate the impact of pupil diameter on axial growth in myopic children after OK treatment. METHODS Fifty-two Chinese children aged 9 to 14 years were enrolled in this study, 27 for the OK group and 25 for the single vision spectacle(More)
AIM To evaluate and compare early corneal wound healing and inflammatory responses after small incision lenticule extraction (SMILE) versus femtosecond laser laser in situ keratomileusis (LASIK). METHODS Thirty-six eyes of 36 rabbits underwent SMILE, while another 36 eyes of 36 rabbits were treated with femtosecond laser LASIK. All the eyes were subjected(More)
PURPOSE To compare the impact on corneal sensation after small incision lenticule extraction (SMILE) and femtosecond laser-assisted LASIK (femto-LASIK) in patients with myopia. METHODS In this prospective, nonrandomized comparative study, 71 subjects were enrolled. Thirty-eight eyes of 38 patients underwent SMILE and 33 eyes of 33 patients underwent(More)
PURPOSE To investigate the morphology of corneal caps in femtosecond laser small incision lenticule extraction (SMILE) and its relation to the refractive outcomes. METHODS A prospective study of fifty-four corneal caps created with VisuMax femtosecond laser were examined using an Fourier-domain optical coherence tomography at 1 day, 1 week, 1 month and 6(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare the changes in anterior chamber volume (ACV), anterior chamber depth (ACD) and anterior chamber angle (ACA) before and 6 months after femtosecond laser in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) for hyperopia using the Pentacam HR device. METHODS A total of 24 eyes of 24 consecutive hyperopic patients undergoing femtosecond LASIK were examined(More)
PURPOSE To determine the incidence and clinical features of diffuse lamellar keratitis (DLK) after small-incision lenticule extraction (SMILE). SETTING Department of Ophthalmology, Eye and ENT Hospital of Fudan University, Shanghai, China. DESIGN Retrospective case control study. METHODS Small-incision lenticule extraction for myopia was performed(More)
AIMS Proliferative diabetic retinopathy (PDR) is associated with microvascular complications that cause biochemical changes in the human retina and alter the proteome of vitreous humor and aqueous humor (AH). METHODS Human vitreous humor and AH of PDR subjects were collected. Subjects who had surgery for epiretinal membrane or macular hole served as(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the intraocular pressure (IOP) and central corneal thickness (CCT) in premature low birth weight (LBW) infants and their correlation with gestational age (GA). METHODS IOP and CCT were measured in premature LBW infants (defined as a birth weight ≤ 1,500 g or birth GA ≤ 30 weeks) admitted to the neonatal intensive care unit at the(More)
