BACKGROUND Perfluorocarbon liquids (PFCL) cause retinal damage when used as long-term ocular endotamponades. Whether these changes are related to the mechanical or to the chemical properties of PFCL is unclear. The purpose of this study was to evaluate pressure spikes or shearing forces during endotamponade with PFCL and standardised eye movements. MATERIAL AND METHODS Part 1: In an eye model the resulting pressure forces of 6 PFCL were measured at four different sites during standardised eye… CONTINUE READING
