PURPOSE: To customize clinical practice guidelines (CPGs) for cataract management in the Iranian population. METHODS: First, four CPGs (American Academy of Ophthalmology 2006 and 2011, Royal College of Ophthalmologists 2010, and Canadian Ophthalmological Society 2008) were selected from a number of available CPGs in the literature for cataract management. All recommendations of these guidelines, together with their references, were studied. Each recommendation was summarized in 4 tables...

PURPOSE: To compare corneal biomechanical properties and intraocular pressure (IOP) in eyes with pseudophakic bullous keratopathy (PBK) before and after Descemet stripping automated endothelial keratoplasty (DSAEK). METHODS: This prospective nonrandomized intrasubject comparative study was conducted on 44 eyes of 22 patients with the diagnosis of PBK who underwent DSAEK in one eye. IOP was measured by Goldmann applanation tonometer, and central corneal thickness was measured by ultrasound pachymetry...

PURPOSE: To compare 2 sites of air injection to achieve Descemet membrane (DM) detachment in big-bubble deep anterior lamellar keratoplasty (DALK). METHODS: In this prospective, randomized study, 48 eyes of 48 keratoconus-affected patients who underwent DALK by cornea fellows were enrolled. Each patient was randomly assigned into one of 2 groups. After trephination to approximately 80% of the corneal thickness, a 27-G needle was inserted into the stroma from the trephination site...

Hepatic artery aneurysms are rare but potentially life threatening. We describe a novel case of a successful endovascular coil embolization of a huge hepatic artery aneurysm. A 67-year-old woman presented with recent abdominal pain that had begun from 2 weeks before referring to our hospital. Sonographic and computerized tomographic (CT) findings revealed a huge hepatic artery aneurysm with 95 mm × 83 mm diameter. The patient underwent an endovascular technique. In aortic angiography, the celiac artery orifice and superior mesenteric artery were so narrow, so sonography was used in order to determine the exact position of the catheter in the celiac artery orifice...

PURPOSE: To determine the sensitivity and specificity of anterior and posterior corneal elevation parameters as determined by Orbscan II (Bausch and Lomb, Rochester, NY, USA) in discriminating between (sub) clinical keratoconus (KCN) and normal corneas. METHODS: This prospective case-control study included 28 eyes with subclinical KCN, 65 with clinical KCN and 141 normal corneas. Anterior and posterior corneal elevation was measured and compared in the central 5-mm corneal zone using Orbscan II...

It has been shown that microtubule (MT) activity and dynamics can have huge impacts on synaptic plasticity and memory formation. This is mainly due to various functions of MTs in neurons; MTs are involved in dendritic spine formation, axonal transportation, neuronal polarity, and receptor trafficking. Recent studies from our group and other labs have suggested the possible role of brain MT dynamicity and activity in memory; however, there is a need for more detailed studies regarding this aspect. In this study, we have tried to evaluate the importance of microtubule dynamicity rather than stability in memory formation in vivo...

PURPOSE: To compare the visual outcomes and complications of three different types of phakic intraocular lenses (PIOLs), for correction of moderate to high myopia. METHODS: We reviewed 112 myopic eyes undergoing PIOL implantation using Artisan (40 eyes), Artiflex (36 eyes), and implantable collamer lens (ICL, 36 eyes). Best corrected visual acuity (BCVA), intraocular pressure (IOP), pachymetry, corneal endothelial cell (CEC) loss, and higher order aberrations (HOA) were compared...

PURPOSE: To assess the agreement among ultrasonic pachymetry, the Galilei dual Scheimpflug analyzer, and Orbscan II for central and peripheral (Galilei vs. Orbscan) corneal thickness (CCT and PCT) measurement in normal and keratoconic eyes. METHODS: In this prospective study, CCT and PCT were measured in 88 eyes of 88 refractive surgery candidates and 128 eyes of 69 keratoconic patients with ultrasonic pachymetry, the Galilei, and Orbscan II. The readings by the three instruments were compared using one-way analysis of normal variance...

PURPOSE: To determine the correlation between ocular biometric parameters and the amplitude of accommodation in early presbyopic eyes. METHODS: This cross-sectional study was performed on 62 eyes of 62 subjects aged from 40 to 49 years. All participants were emmetropic (spherical equivalent refractive error within 0.50 D of emmetropia with astigmatism less than 0.75 D) and best spectacle-corrected visual acuity was 20/20. Only the right eyes of all subjects were included for analysis...

BACKGROUND: The present study sets out to determine normal corneal sensitivity in five corneal regions and its changes with age in an Iranian population. METHODS: The corneal sensitivity of the centre of the cornea and at four corneal regions, namely, nasal, inferior, temporal and superior at 2.0 mm from the limbus of the right eye of 596 subjects aged 15 to 81 were measured using a Cochet-Bonnet aesthesiometer. All measurements were performed by the same examiner at 18 degrees centigrade and 35 per cent humidity between 2:00 and 5:00 pm...

PURPOSE: To describe the technique and outcomes of limbal stem cell-sparing lamellar keratoplasty (LSCS-LKP) for the management of advanced keratoglobus (KGB). METHODS: In a sequential interventional case series from March 2010 to December 2012, 8 eyes of 6 patients with advanced KGB underwent an LSCS-LKP. Three patients had isolated KGB, 2 were affected with the Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, and the other subject had osteogenesis imperfecta. Epithelial healing, anatomical results (corneal thickness and keratometry), and visual outcomes were evaluated after this intervention...

PURPOSE: To compare the visual outcomes and complications of lensectomy and posterior chamber intraocular lens (PCIOL) implantation with or without posterior capsulotomy and anterior vitrectomy in older subjects with pediatric cataracts. METHODS: Seventeen eyes of 12 children aged 10 to 15 years with congenital or developmental cataracts were randomly divided to two groups. Lensectomy and PCIOL (Alcon Acrysof MA60 AC) implantation was performed with (8 eyes) or without (9 eyes) posterior capsulotomy and anterior vitrectomy...

Purpose. To measure corneal elevations in eyes with subclinical keratoconus and those with keratoconus using the Galilei Scheimpflug analyzer and to determine the optimal corneal elevation cutoff points to maximize sensitivity and specificity in discriminating keratoconus and subclinical keratoconus from normal corneas. 
Methods. A total of 136 normal eyes, 23 eyes with subclinical keratoconus, and 51 eyes with keratoconus were enrolled. Maximum anterior and posterior corneal elevation was measured in the central 3-, 5-, and 7-mm zones using the Galilei double Scheimpflug camera...
