This study aimed to describe and compare corneal graft survival and optical outcomes following deep anterior lamellar keratoplasty (DALK) and Descemet's stripping automated endothelial keratoplasty (DSAEK) with penetrating keratoplasty (PK), and to document tectonic success of patch grafts.

Glaucoma is a well-documented complication of corneal transplants, contributing significantly to ultimate visual loss. Reported incidence of glaucoma following corneal transplants is highly variable, ...
Patients with Fuchs endothelial corneal dystrophy (FECD) often notice poor vision in the morning that improves as the day progresses. In this study, we determined changes in corneal optical properties...
The study aimed to evaluate the prevalence of insomnia in patients with first episode psychosis (FEP) and to explore the relationship between insomnia and socio-demographic and clinical variables as w...
Transplant rates in Singapore have been falling and there is limited information on baseline characteristics and clinical outcomes of living kidney donors nationally. This study aimed to determine the...
To evaluate a proposed technology for offering objective grading and mapping of corneal haze as detected by corneal spectral domain optical coherence tomography after corneal cross-linking.
To review the characteristics and treatment of gastrointestinal tumours at the two tertiary centres in Singapore
This is a hospital-based interventional prospective study. Patients with clinical keratoconus or LASIK keratectasia presenting to the Singapore National Eye Centre who meet the eligibility...
Corneal dystrophies are usually classified histopathologically according to the layer of the cornea that is affected. The International Committee for the Classification of Corneal Dystroph...
Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) machines are non-contact instruments that can measure the depth of scars and other causes of cloudiness in the front of the cornea. The purpose of this s...
The objective of the study is to further develop clinical applications for the high speed corneal and anterior segment optical coherence tomography (CAS-OCT) system developed by Optovue, I...
New blood vessels originating from the corneal veins and extending from the limbus into the adjacent CORNEAL STROMA. Neovascularization in the superficial and/or deep corneal stroma is a sequel to numerous inflammatory diseases of the ocular anterior segment, such as TRACHOMA, viral interstitial KERATITIS, microbial KERATOCONJUNCTIVITIS, and the immune response elicited by CORNEAL TRANSPLANTATION.
The use of light interaction (scattering, absorption, and fluorescence) with biological tissue to obtain morphologically based information. It includes measuring inherent tissue optical properties such as scattering, absorption, and autofluorescence; or optical properties of exogenous targeted fluorescent molecular probes such as those used in optical MOLECULAR IMAGING, or nontargeted optical CONTRAST AGENTS.
The expenses incurred by a hospital in providing care. The hospital costs attributed to a particular patient care episode include the direct costs plus an appropriate proportion of the overhead for administration, personnel, building maintenance, equipment, etc. Hospital costs are one of the factors which determine HOSPITAL CHARGES (the price the hospital sets for its services).
An isomer of butanol that contains a tertiary butyl group that consists of three methyl groups, each separately attached to a central (tertiary) carbon.
The prices a hospital sets for its services. HOSPITAL COSTS (the direct and indirect expenses incurred by the hospital in providing the services) are one factor in the determination of hospital charges. Other factors may include, for example, profits, competition, and the necessity of recouping the costs of uncompensated care.
Organ transplantation is the moving of an organ from one body to another or from a donor site to another location on the patient's own body, for the purpose of replacing the recipient's damaged or absent organ. The emerging field of regenerative ...
