PURPOSE: To evaluate the effects of photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) on the stereopsis of myopic and hyperopic patients. SETTING: Farabi Eye Hospital, Tehran, Iran. DESIGN: Prospective case series. METHODS: This study included patients having PRK to achieve emmetropia. The patients were divided into the following 3 groups: low myopia (<-6.0 diopters [D]), high myopia (>-6.0 D), and hyperopia (<+4.0 D). Near stereoacuity was measured using the Randot test under photopic conditions (with corrective glasses) at 40 cm preoperatively (with corrective glasses) and 1, 3, and 12 months postoperatively...

PURPOSE: To compare long term efficacy of phacoemulsification in the early management of acute primary angle closure (APAC) after aborting an acute attack and performing laser peripheral iridotomy (LPI). METHODS: In this nonrandomized comparative prospective study, we included 35 subjects presenting with APAC who had responded to medical treatment and LPI with intraocular pressure (IOP) less than 25 mmHg. Twenty patients with visually significant cataract with visual acuity of <20/30 were assigned to the "Phaco/LPI" group and underwent phacoemulsification within 6 weeks of the attack...

PURPOSE: To quantitatively analyze central corneal thickness (CCT) in patients with primary angle closure glaucoma (PACG) and primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG), and to evaluate its correlation with severity of glaucoma. METHODS: In this retrospective study, records of patients with previously diagnosed POAG or PACG at a tertiary glaucoma service were reviewed. CCT was measured by ultrasound pachymetry. Mean deviation (MD) on visual field (VF) testing was recorded for glaucoma severity determination...

UNLABELLED: We describe a new method (intrastromal lamellar keratoplasty) to treat patients with pellucid marginal degeneration (PMD). After a pocket is created along the marked margins of the thinned inferior cornea with Melles dissectors, a crescent of the same size is marked on the donor cornea. The epithelial and endothelial layers are removed, and the donor tissue is cut in a crescentic shape in the size of the marked corneal pocket. The donor crescentic stroma is then inserted into the stromal pocket...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the outcome of accelerated and conventional corneal cross-linking (CXL) procedures regarding their effect on morphological and optical properties of the cornea. METHODS: One hundred fifty-three eyes of 153 patients were evaluated before and during a 15-month follow-up period after CXL (76 eyes in the conventional group and 77 eyes in the accelerated group). Measured variables include corrected distance visual acuity (CDVA), uncorrected distance visual acuity (UDVA), refraction, maximum keratometry, endothelial cell density, anterior and posterior stromal keratocyte density, and subbasal nerve density...

PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to evaluate biocompatibility of a newly proposed intrastromal inlay in rabbit corneas. METHODS: Eighteen eyes of 9 New Zealand rabbits were included in this prospective study. An intrastromal pocket was created in both eyes using Melles instruments. Annular intracorneal inlays made of hexafocon A were implanted randomly into the stromal pocket of one eye of each rabbit. Confocal microscopy was performed at each visit during 6-month follow-up...

SETTING: Farabi Eye Hospital, Tehran University of Medical Sciences, Tehran, Iran. DESIGN: Prospective case series. METHODS: Patients with superficial corneal scars had femtosecond laser-assisted anterior lamellar keratoplasty...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the effect of MyoRing implantations (DIOPTEX GmbH, Linz, Austria) in patients with ectasia after LASIK. METHODS: MyoRing implantation was performed in 15 eyes of 14 patients with ectasia after LASIK using a femtosecond laser. Uncorrected and corrected distance visual acuity, refraction, keratometry, central corneal thickness, corneal biomechanical profile, and corneal aberrometry were evaluated preoperatively and at 1, 3, and 6 months, and 1 year postoperatively...
