PURPOSE To compare the level of endothelial damage caused by contact with materials used in contemporary glaucoma drainage devices and a phosphorylcholine polymer-coated PMMA (PC-PMMA). METHODS Standard-sized discs of silicone, PMMA (polymethylmethacrylate), and PC-PMMA (n = 6) were gently lowered onto cultured bovine corneal endothelial (BCE) monolayers using a vacuum suction device. A 2.4-g stainless steel cloning ring weight was then placed on top of each disc. The weights and discs were… CONTINUE READING
