Purpose: The aim of this article was to demonstrate how WaveLight Contoura and wavefront optimization (WFO) can be used together to treat high myopia/myopic astigmatism corrections. Materials and methods: A retrospective analysis was conducted on 24 consecutive myopic/myopic astigmatism eyes that exceeded the Contoura labeling of -8.00 with -3.00 D of astigmatism. Residual correction after Contoura with Layer Yolked Reduction of Astigmatism protocol was treated with WFO Contoura LASIK correction...

OBJECTIVE: This study was designed to assess changes in corneal topography and biomechanics after intraocular pressure (IOP) monitoring using the Triggerfish contact lens sensor (CLS). METHODS: For this prospective study, 30 eyes of 30 subjects: 14 healthy subjects (G1) and 6 glaucoma patients (G2), were recruited for 24 hours of continuous IOP monitoring using the CLS. The following measurements were taken before CLS fitting and after lens removal: maximum keratometry (Kmax), mean keratometry (MK), and corneal astigmatism (Cyl) measured through Pentacam corneal topography, and the corneal biomechanical variables corneal hysteresis (CH) and corneal resistance factor (CRF) measured with the Ocular Response Analyzer (ORA)...

Purpose: To report a case that had a progressive decrease in the visual acuity caused by a progressive increase in the hyperopia due to a flattening of the cornea. Observations: A 50-year-old woman complained of decreased vision in both eyes. Her decimal best-corrected visual acuity was 1.2 in the right and 0.5 in the left eyes, and the refractive error (spherical equivalent) was +3.75 diopters (D) for the right eye and +6.5 D for the left eye. Slit-lamp examinations showed clear corneas but Descemet's folds and fine pigmentations and opacities were present beneath the corneal epithelium in both eyes...

Purpose: This case report describes two glaucoma patients who underwent selective laser trabeculoplasty (SLT) and developed a rare post-procedure corneal complication and subsequent permanent corneal distortions and reduced acuity. Observations: Both patients experienced early post-procedure corneal edema, reduced visual acuity, and pain. Each patient was treated with topical steroids with resolution of the edema, but each patient had irregular corneal astigmatism which was not present pre-operatively and did not resolve...

A 77-year-old man had cataract surgery in the left eye in March 2017. A toric intraocular lens (IOL) was implanted because of astigmatism. The postoperative meridian of the IOL was located nearly exactly in the planned meridian, which was controlled 1 week later with ray-tracing aberrometry (iTrace) and the smartphone application Axis Assistant. The referring ophthalmologist proceeded directly with a neodymium:YAG (Nd:YAG) laser posterior capsulotomy in his own office, after which the meridian of the implanted toric IOL was rotated more than 115 degrees...

AIM: To compare changes in the shape and astigmatism of the total and posterior cornea between eyes with a nasal clear corneal incision (CCI) and eyes with a temporal CCI in cataract surgery. METHODS: The left eyes of 100 patients undergoing phacoemulsification were randomly assigned to undergo a 2.4 mm nasal (nasal CCI group) or temporal CCI (temporal CCI group). Corneal astigmatic changes were compared between groups using power vector analysis, and corneal shape changes were compared using videokeratography maps at 2 days, and at 2, 4 and 8 weeks postoperatively...

Moebius syndrome is a rare cause of congenital facial and abducens palsy.  It is sometimes associated with musculoskeletal abnormalities and other cranial nerve palsies. Genetics and ischemic insults to the fetus are considered to be the cause of this syndrome. We report here a 12-year-old female patient who was presented to us with poor cosmesis of her face, with associated decreased vision and lagophthalmos in her left eye. She didn't have any signs of exposure keratopathy in the affected eye. Her best-corrected vision was 20/20 and 20/60 in right and left eyes respectively...

PURPOSE: To compare the effect of posterior corneal astigmatism on the estimation of total corneal astigmatism using anterior corneal measurements (simulated keratometry [K]) between eyes with keratoconus and healthy eyes. METHODS: Thirty-three eyes of 33 patients with keratoconus of grade I or II and 33 eyes of 33 age- and sex-matched healthy control subjects were enrolled. Anterior, posterior, and total corneal cylinder powers and flat meridians measured by a single Scheimpflug camera were analyzed...

BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVES: Infantile hemangiomas are the most common benign tumors of childhood. Although some children with periocular infantile hemangiomas do not require treatment, these lesions may result in amblyopia and visual impairment if not properly treated. We have attempted to characterize clinical features of periocular infantile hemangiomas that predict negative ocular outcomes and thus require prompt referral to an ophthalmologist and initiation of therapy. METHODS: This study included children with periocular infantile hemangiomas consecutively seen at Ann & Robert H...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the effect of corneal vesicles in patients with posterior corneal vesicles (PCV) on corneal endothelial cell (CEC) density and the acquisition of amblyopia. METHODS: In this retrospective study of patients with PCV (18 eyes of 14 patients), CEC density was examined by noncontact specular microscopy during each follow-up examination. Best-corrected visual acuity and the objective refractive error were also examined. RESULTS: Of the 14 total patients, 10 were diagnosed with PCV and 4 were diagnosed with bilateral suspected PCV or posterior polymorphous corneal dystrophy (PPCD), and in all patients, no ocular abnormality other than corneal vesicles was observed...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the long-term changes in anterior and posterior corneal irregular astigmatism and curvatures after small incision lenticule extraction (SMILE). METHODS: Fifty eyes of 28 patients underwent SMILE for myopic astigmatism. All procedures were performed using the VisuMax® femtosecond laser. A Scheimpflug camera was used for preoperative and 3-year postoperative tomography. Anterior and posterior corneal Fourier parameters (spherical component, regular astigmatism, asymmetry, and irregularity) and curvature data were evaluated and compared within 2 subgroups according to the magnitude of the refractive correction (low myopia group: spherical equivalent (SEQ) ≥ -6 D; high myopia group: (SEQ) < -6 D)...

A total of 121 patients (121 eyes) who had cataract combined with corneal regular astigmatism and met the inclusion criteria were enrolled in 9 hospitals from May 2014 to May 2016. There were 45 males and 76 females and the median age was 71 (42-88) years old. A total of 121 patients (121 eyes) were randomly assigned to the study group and the control group through the Central Randomization System...

J Wang, Y X Cao
The aim of modern micro-incision phacoemulsification combined with foldable intraocular lens implantation and femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgery is evolving from a simple pursuit of recuperation to a refractive procedure, which involves the correction of ametropia according to preoperative and postoperative refractive conditions, especially corneal astigmatism, in order to achieve the goal of optimized postoperative uncorrected full range of vision. Nowadays, due attention to the effect of preoperative corneal astigmatism, surgery-induced astigmatism and residual astigmatism after operation is lacked, which affect postoperative visual acuity significantly...

BACKGROUND: To evaluate the refractive and visual outcomes of Transepithelial photorefractive keratectomy (TransPRK) in the treatment of low to moderate myopic astigmatism. METHODS: This retrospective study enrolled a total of 47 eyes that had undergone Transepithelial photorefractive keratectomy. Preoperative cylinder diopters ranged from - 0.75D to - 2.25D (mean - 1.11 ± 0.40D), and the sphere was between - 1.50D to - 5.75D. Visual outcomes and vector analysis of astigmatism that included error ratio (ER), correction ratio (CR), error of magnitude (EM) and error of angle (EA) were evaluated...
