Lucy means light. Saint Lucy, also known as Saint Lucia or Saint Lukia is the patron saint of the blind.

She was raised by her Greek mother, Eutychia, who instilled in her the sense of sharing with the poor.1 Lucy grew up to be a devout Christian woman. She consecrated her virginity to God and …

Penetrating keratoplasty combined with posterior Artisan iris-fixated intraocular lens implantation.
TLDR
The implantation of the Artisan device behind the iris better preserves the anatomy of the anterior segment with respect to the iridocorneal angle in a case series of five patients. Expand
Posterior iris fixation of the iris-claw intraocular lens implantation through a scleral tunnel incision.
TLDR
Posterior iris fixation of the iris-claw IOL implantation through a scleral tunnel incision is a safe procedure and an effective option for aphakic eyes without capsule support. Expand
Ultrasound biomicroscopy of the Artisan phakic intraocular lens in hyperopic eyes
TLDR
Adequate space was maintained between the Artisan hyperopic IOL and the corneal endothelium, angle, and crystalline lens, and Haptic indentation of the iris, which could lead to pigment erosion, was observed. Expand
Ultrasound biomicroscopy of iris-claw phakic intraocular lens implantation.
TLDR
Adequate space is maintained between the Verisyse myopic ICPIOL and the corneal endothelium, angle, and crystalline lens and the I CPIOL implanted in phakic eyes is a safe alternative for treatment of high myopia. Expand
Recent advances in ophthalmic anterior segment imaging: a new era for ophthalmic diagnosis?
TLDR
New imaging modalities, such as rotating Scheimpflug imaging (Pentacam-Scheimpflug) and anterior segment optical coherence tomography (Visante OCT and Slit-Lamp OCT), have recently become commercially available and may herald the dawn of a new era for ophthalmic diagnosis. Expand
Intraocular architecture of secondary implanted anterior chamber iris-claw lenses in aphakic eyes evaluated with anterior segment optical coherence tomography
TLDR
Primary anterior iris-claw IOLs appears to be a safe choice to correct aphakia with no significant intermediate postoperative central endothelium cell loss, especially in eyes with axial length ⩾24 mm, as distances from the IOL to the central and peripheral cornea proved to be consistent. Expand
