acta ophthalmol

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...

PURPOSE: To determine the optimal distribution of refractions in monofocal, pseudophakic monovision. METHODS: A previously reported mathematical method for describing defocus for a single eye (Acta Ophthalmol, 89, 2011, 111) is expanded to the binocular situation. The binocular distribution of refractions yielding the least defocus over the most extended fixation intervals is identified by mathematical optimization. The results are tested in a group of 22 pseudophakic patients...

Vitamin C is a major antioxidant and UV absorbent in the human lens. In the rodent lens, the levels are very low for unknown reasons. Searching for clues to explain this suppression, we investigated the comparative uptake of Vitamin C in cultured human and mouse lens epithelial cells. When compared to human HLE-B3 lens epithelial cells, (14)C-ASA uptake was 4- to 10-fold impaired in confluent mouse lens 17EM15 (p < 0.0001) and 21EM15 (p < 0.001) cells, respectively. High glucose concentrations reduced the uptake by 30-50% in all cells (p < 0...

Out of the approximately 30 million contact lens wearers in North America, about 6%--approximately 1.8 million individuals--develop a complication each year [Acta Ophthalmol 1984, 62:556-565]. These problems range from self-limiting to sight threatening, and require rapid diagnosis and treatment to prevent vision loss. Contact lens complications are as varied as they are common, involving the lids, conjunctiva, and all layers of the cornea (epithelium, stroma, and endothelium).

Prior to, directly after and 15 minutes after preoperative Vörösmarthy oculopression (30, 40, or 50 mm Hg; 15 min), 30 patients were examined by oculooscillodynamography after Ulrich. Systolic retinal and ciliary perfusion pressures were higher directly after oculopression, whereas the systolic and diastolic ocular blood pressures (intramural pressures) were lower. These changes did not depend significantly on the level of oculopression. Fifteen minutes after oculopression, the ocular perfusion and blood pressures were largely normalized...

The form and magnitude of K+ Krebs-induced contractures has been measured for the dog ophthalmociliary artery. Ring segments of the vessel were mounted in a myograph after the method of Hogestatt, Andersson and Edvinsson (1983, Acta Physiol. Scand. 117, 49-61). For low passive tensions the K(-)-induced contractures show both a phasic and tonic component, with the tonic tension component being the smaller. As passive tension is increased, the phasic component grows and plateaus whilst the tonic component continues to increase...
