Corneal opacities can obstruct ophthalmology examination in patients before penetrating keratoplasty (PK).To assess the usefulness of visual evoked potentials (VEPs) in estimating postoperative visual...
Small incision refractive lenticule extraction (SMILE) is a femtosecond laser technique to correct myopia and myopic astigmatism. Herein, we report a technique where intrastromal lenticule obtained fr...
To evaluate outcomes and graft survival of Descemet membrane endothelial keratoplasty (DMEK) for failed penetrating keratoplasty (PK).
To evaluate Descemet membrane endothelial keratoplasty (DMEK) in the setting of failed penetrating keratoplasty (PKP) and to identify factors associated with DMEK success and failure after PKP.
To evaluate gas production and interface quality after refractive lenticule creation. A new ultraviolet (UV) 347 nm femtosecond laser was compared with the FS200 and the Visumax lasers.
To compare the early visual results and postoperative recovery between two groups of keratoconic patients - one group having undergone a traditional, mechanical vacuum trephine procedure w...
This pilot study will compare upto 15 patients undergoing femtolaser assisted keratoplasty (using CE[Conformité Européene] approved femtolaser apparatus) with upto 15 patients undergoing...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the visual results of patients with keratoconus treated with one of two techniques: penetrating keratoplasty (PK) vs. pachymetry and Excimer laser ...
The primary goal of the trial is to determine if laser-assisted lamellar anterior keratoplasty (LALAK) will reduce the risks of post-operative complications such as adhesions, glaucoma and...
it is a randomized clinical trial to compare deep lamellar keratoplasty (DLK) Using big bubble technique and Penetrating Keratoplasty (PK) in patients with keratoconus
A technique utilizing a laser coupled to a catheter which is used in the dilatation of occluded blood vessels. This includes laser thermal angioplasty where the laser energy heats up a metal tip, and direct laser angioplasty where the laser energy directly ablates the occlusion. One form of the latter approach uses an EXCIMER LASER which creates microscopically precise cuts without thermal injury. When laser angioplasty is performed in combination with balloon angioplasty it is called laser-assisted balloon angioplasty (ANGIOPLASTY, BALLOON, LASER-ASSISTED).
Comparison of various psychological, sociological, or cultural factors in order to assess the similarities or diversities occurring in two or more different cultures or societies.
The coagulation of tissue by an intense beam of light, including laser (LASER COAGULATION). In the eye it is used in the treatment of retinal detachments, retinal holes, aneurysms, hemorrhages, and malignant and benign neoplasms. (Dictionary of Visual Science, 3d ed)
Techniques using laser energy in combination with a balloon catheter to perform angioplasty. These procedures can take several forms including: 1, laser fiber delivering the energy while the inflated balloon centers the fiber and occludes the blood flow; 2, balloon angioplasty immediately following laser angioplasty; or 3, laser energy transmitted through angioplasty balloons that contain an internal fiber.
A surgical procedure or KERATOPLASTY involving selective stripping and replacement of diseased host DESCEMET MEMBRANE and CORNEAL ENDOTHELIUM with a suitable and healthy donor posterior lamella. The advantage to this procedure is that the normal corneal surface of the recipient is retained, thereby avoiding corneal surface incisions and sutures.
Ophthalmology is the branch of medicine that is devoted to the study and treatment of eye diseases. As well as mild visual defects correctable by lenses, ophthalmology is concerned with glaucoma, uveitis and other serious conditions affecting the eye, ...
