Corneal Biomechanics and Measurement of Intraocular Pressure Measurement in Pathological Corneas.

Measuring the intraocular pressure in eyes with corneal diseases or after corneal interventions often results in false values due to abnormal corneal biomechanics. Many different approaches are used t...

Analysis of the Corneal Anterior and Posterior Surface in Patients With Peripheral Hypertrophic Subepithelial Corneal Opacification.

To characterize the corneal changes in peripheral hypertrophic subepithelial corneal opacification (PHSCO) considering elevation of the anterior and posterior corneal surface, corneal astigmatism, tea...

Comparative gene expression profiling reveals key pathways and genes different in skin epidermal stem cells and corneal epithelial cells.

Corneal epithelial cells (CECs) are required for corneal transparency and visual function, and corneal injuries may cause corneal blindness. Skin epidermal stem cells (SESCs), which share the same ori...

Contact Lenses in the Management of Corneal Dystrophies.

Among the group of diseases comprising corneal dystrophies, there are a number for which contact lenses may be considered. For example, soft contact lenses may be beneficial in the management of recur...

Effects of amantadine on corneal endothelium.

An adverse effect of amantadine, a drug used for Parkinson's disease, is corneal edema. While corneal endothelial cell loss is noted with amantadine toxicity, the reversibility of corneal edema sugges...

Clinical Trials [3197 Associated Clinical Trials listed on BioPortfolio]

Corneal Biomechanics and Corneal Reshaping Therapy

The aim of the proposed study is to investigate the predictive value of corneal biomechanical properties in corneal reshaping therapy and the role of these parameters in determining the am...

Studies in Families With Corneal Dystrophy or Other Inherited Corneal Diseases

This study will explore the clinical and hereditary (genetic) features of corneal dystrophy and other inherited corneal disease. Corneal dystrophy is clouding of the cornea - the transpar...

Utilization of Amniotic Membrane Extract Eye Drop (AMEED) on Human Corneal Healing

For severe ocular surface diseases, such as chemical and thermal injuries, Stevens-Johnson syndrome (SJS), Band Keratopathy, Corneal Dystrophies, Refractive (PRK-LASEK), corneal surgery an...

A Comparison Between Full Thickness and Partial Thickness Corneal Transplantation for Corneal Edema

The objectives of this study are to compare the visual and refractive outcomes of deep lamellar endothelial keratoplasty (DLEK) with penetrating keratoplasty as treatment for certain cases...

Topical Infliximab for Sterile Corneal Melt

Corneal melt is a complication that could affect very ill eyes and lead to the thinning of the cornea (the clear window covering of the eyes). This thinning can lead to severe consequences...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

Loss of CORNEAL ENDOTHELIUM usually following intraocular surgery (e.g., cataract surgery) or due to FUCHS' ENDOTHELIAL DYSTROPHY; ANGLE-CLOSURE GLAUCOMA; IRITIS; or aging.

A puncture or hole through the CORNEAL STROMA resulting from various diseases or trauma.

The measurement of curvature and shape of the anterior surface of the cornea using techniques such as keratometry, keratoscopy, photokeratoscopy, profile photography, computer-assisted image processing and videokeratography. This measurement is often applied in the fitting of contact lenses and in diagnosing corneal diseases or corneal changes including keratoconus, which occur after keratotomy and keratoplasty.

A localized defect in the visual field bordered by an area of normal vision. This occurs with a variety of EYE DISEASES (e.g., RETINAL DISEASES and GLAUCOMA); OPTIC NERVE DISEASES, and other conditions.
