Purpose: To analyze the optical quality of intraocular lenses (IOL) with an orange (PC440Y) and a yellow (SN60AT) filter, and correlate these results with the visual quality of patients with these implants. Setting: Fisabio Oftalmologνa Mιdica, Valencia, Spain. Design: Randomized prospective study. Materials and Methods: The IOL optical quality was determined using the modulation transfer function (MTF) and the spectral transmission. The visual quality of 87 eyes with cataract (51 with orange filter and 36 with yellow filter) was determined by best corrected visual acuity (BCVA) and contrast sensitivity function (CSF) under photopic and mesopic conditions...

This is my personal memories concerning the Nordic periodical Acta Ophthalmologica in the period 1970-88. Poul Braendstrup was scientific secretary for Acta 1950-70 and chief editor 1970-75. His many important scientific works and enormous work for Acta is described, but also personal topics are mentioned. Acta meetings in the Danish Ophthalmol Society (DOS) and in the Nordic ophtalmol. Congresses are discussed. A referee-system is established from 1976, but with political contra scientific motives. Only a few papers arrived to Acta...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: The cataract-associated increase in serum ferritin without any other data of iron overload is known since 1995 as hyperferritinemia-cataract syndrome (HHCS). More than 100 families have been described all around the world with this syndrome and more than 30 mutations in the L-ferritin (FTL) gene. We introduce a family from Madrid (Spain), with the disease phenotype and a genotype with the A40G mutation, named Paris, and besides carrier of the H63D mutation of the HFE gene...

Mucocele has its origin by blockage of the paranasal sinuses ostium with mucinous retention inside, sometimes purulent (mucopiocele), and progressive slimming with gradual destruction on the bone walls. We report an own review of 7 patients with diagnosis of frontoethmoidal mucocele, 4 men and 3 women, 50-years average. The oftalmologic clinical symptoms (diplopia, exoftalmos and the eyeball movement restrictiv) were the most frequentjointly to cefalea. The kind of surgery that we have performed, in 6 of 7 cases, was FES with marsupialization (4 times) and external ethmoidectomy (2)...

Thirteen cases of ocular toxocariasis attended in the Oftalmology Service of the Pediatric Hospital "Niño Jesús", from Córdoba; and in the Parasitology and Micology Cathedra of the Medicine Collegue of the University of Córdoba were studied from July 1993 till July 1995. The authors determine the needs of taking into account this parasitosis; above all in children and with the antecedent of contact with pets.
