To explore the relationship between the degree of iris pigmentation and corneal sensitivity threshold (CST) on a variety of different ethnicities, using the air-jet noncontact corneal aesthesiometer and by applying a consistent method of subject iris pigmentation classification.
This article was published in the following journal.
To evaluate the relationship of biomechanical properties, corneal hysteresis and corneal resistance factor with age, sex and various corneal parameters measured with a Pentacam in normal subjects.
To identify the types of (transforming growth factor, beta-induced) gene mutations in three Chinese families with Reis-Bücklers corneal dystrophy (RBCD), lattice corneal dystrophy type I (LCDI), or ...
The present study examines the relationship between dose to corneal substructures and incidence of corneal toxicity within six months of proton beam therapy (PBT) for uveal melanoma. We aim to develop...
We present a case series describing a unique entity as it relates to plateau iris. There have been many established risk factors for plateau iris, but we present the following cases which describe pat...
It has recently been shown how dynamic nuclear polarization can be used to hyperpolarize the bulk of proton-free solids. This is achieved by generating the polarization in a wetting phase, transferrin...
To monitor iris pigmentation changes over a five year period in subjects with open-angle glaucoma or ocular hypertension who have experienced an iris pigmentation change while dosing with ...
To study the relationship between visual function and ocular (iris, retina/choroidal) pigmentation in patients with albinism and other hypomelanotic disorders. To identify the carrier sta...
Intraoperative Floppy Iris Syndrome (IFIS) may occur during cataract surgeries in patients treated with alpha 1 blockers. IFIS related to alpha 1 blocker Tamsulosin (used for prostate hype...
The purpose of this study is to determine the molecular mechanism of this disease and to research the relationship between cystinosis and skin phenotype.
The goal of the study is to investigate relationship between the corneal response to a temporary increase in intraocular pressure and corneal mechanical properties.
Tumors of the iris characterized by increased pigmentation of melanocytes. Iris nevi are composed of proliferated melanocytes and are associated with neurofibromatosis and malignant melanoma of the choroid and ciliary body. Malignant melanoma of the iris often originates from preexisting nevi.
A grouping of three closely linked conditions: iris nevus (or Cogan-Reese) syndrome, Chandler Syndrome, and essential (progressive) iris atrophy. The most common features of this syndrome are the movement of endothelial cells off the cornea onto the iris leading to corneal swelling, distortion of the iris, and variable degrees of distortion of the pupil. The abnormal cell movement plugs fluid outflow channels of the eye causing GLAUCOMA.
The deposition of flaky, translucent fibrillar material most conspicuous on the anterior lens capsule and pupillary margin but also in both surfaces of the iris, the zonules, trabecular meshwork, ciliary body, corneal endothelium, and orbital blood vessels. It sometimes forms a membrane on the anterior iris surface. Exfoliation refers to the shedding of pigment by the iris. (Newell, Ophthalmology, 7th ed, p380)
Diseases affecting PIGMENTATION, including SKIN PIGMENTATION.
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.
