The cornea is a transparent organ, highly specialized and unique that is continually subjected to abrasive forces and occasional mechanical or chemical trauma because of its anatomical localization. Upon injury, the extracellular matrix (ECM) rapidly changes to promote wound healing through integrin-dependent activation of specific signal transduction mediators whose contribution is to favor faster closure of the wound by altering the adhesive and migratory properties of the cells surrounding the damaged area...

PURPOSE: To introduce the use of corneal epithelial mapping by anterior segment optical coherence tomography (AS-OCT) as an ancillary testing for the identification of areas of loose epithelial adherence in recurrent corneal erosion syndrome (RCES), and the subsequent treatment of the latter with anterior stromal puncture (ASP). METHODS: Five patients were presented with RCES following traumatic corneal abrasions. Following resolution of acute episodes, AS-OCT epithelial mapping was performed revealing in all patients an area of increased epithelial thickness (hot spot) corresponding to the site of loose attachment of the epithelium to the epithelial basement membrane...

Our aim was to compare regeneration of the sub-basal nerve plexus (SBNP) and superficial nerve terminals (SNT) following corneal epithelial injury. We also sought to compare agreement when quantifying nerve parameters using different image-analysis techniques. Anesthetized, female C57BL/6 mice received central 1-mm corneal epithelial abrasions. Four-weeks post-injury, eyes were enucleated and processed for PGP9.5 to visualize the corneal nerves using wholemount immunofluorescence staining and confocal microscopy...

BACKGROUND: Cornea is the outmost structure of the eye and exposed directly to the air pollution. However, little is known about the effect of PM2.5 on corneal epithelium, which is critical for maintenance of cornea homeostasis and visual function. OBJECTIVE: We investigated the influence of PM2.5 exposure on corneal epithelial migration and the possible mechanisms involved in the process. METHODS: We observed wound healing in mouse model of cornea abrasion, evaluated the migration and mobility of cultured corneal epithelial cells with wound scratch assay and Transwell migration assay, detected the phosphorylation and interaction of FAK/paxillin with immunofluorescence and immunoprecipitation, and determined the RhoA activity and actin reorganization, in response to PM2...

The successful restoration of corneal innervation and function after a corneal injury is a clinically challenging issue. Structural and functional recovery after a nerve injury involves a complex series of steps in which microtubules play a key role. The aim of the current study was to investigate the effects of epothilone B (EpoB), a microtubule-stabilizing agent, on corneal innervation and the functional recovery of the corneal nerve in mice after corneal epithelial abrasion. The pretreatment of mice with EpoB has a remarkable effect on the stabilization of beta-III tubulin, as demonstrated by substantial increases in the visualization of beta-III tubulin, nerve beading, corneal reinnervation, and reaction to stimuli...

We describe a case of 55-year-old male farmer presented with recurrent corneal abrasions with a spastic entropion in the left eye. Superior cornea showed typical nummular opacities suggestive resolved herpetic eye diseases. On further enquiry, he had similar episodes in the past. Contralateral eye was essentially normal. Following the botulinum toxin injection for the management of spastic entropion, subject developed reactivation of herpetic necrotizing stromal keratitis. Diagnostic corneal scrapings were negative for herpes simplex virus-1 antigen by immunofluorescence assay and for DNA by molecular techniques...

PURPOSE: Excimer laser phototherapeutic keratectomy (PTK) is a safe treatment for superficial corneal opacities, e.g., in corneal dystrophies or degenerations. Nevertheless, no standardized treatment protocols are available and intraoperative monitoring was not possible, so far. Here we evaluate the potential benefits of the intraoperative assessment by microscope-integrated intraoperative optical coherence tomography (MI-OCT) of corneal optical properties during PTK. METHODS: Retrospective study of eight patients (one male, seven females; age range, 43-80 years, mean = 66...

BACKGROUND: Traumatic corneal abrasions are common ocular presenTations in the ED. There is no consensus regarding the most appropriate analgesia for this condition. Topical non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) have been suggested as pain-relief to minimise systemic adverse events associated with oral analgesia. AIM: To identify and evaluate all randomised controlled trials (RCTs) comparing the use of topical NSAIDs with placebo or any alternative analgesic interventions in adults with traumatic corneal abrasions (including corneal abrasions arising from foreign body removal), to reduce pain, and its effects on healing time...

A major review of the literature of syringocystadenoma papilliferum's (SCAP's) presentation and management is presented. In addition, a case report of this unique diagnosis presenting as a corneal abrasion in a 66-year-old-male is included. This benign adnexal tumor of the apocrine glands is most commonly found in the face and neck. When found on the eyelids, these lesions are commonly misdiagnosed as basal cell carcinoma or cysts. Diagnosis is made based on histopathology. Treatment is complete excision of the lesion and this has a low recurrence rate...
