PURPOSE: To assess the determinants of early postoperative pain in photorefractive keratectomy. DESIGN: A prospective cross-sectional study. METHODS: One hundred and four myopic-astigmatic patients undergoing bilateral standard photorefractive keratectomy were evaluated for early postoperative pain severity. On day 1 postoperatively, the level of pain experienced was reported by the patient on a visual analog scale of 0 to 10. At the preoperative interview, data were collected on clinical, demographic, and social characteristics to find potential pain determinants...

PURPOSE: To devise and evaluate a screening algorithm for glaucoma in clinical settings. METHODS: Screening included examination of the optic disc for vertical cupping (≥0.4) and asymmetry (≥0.15), Goldmann applanation tonometry (≥21 mmHg, adjusted or unadjusted for central corneal thickness), and automated perimetry. In the diagnostic step, retinal nerve fiber layer imaging was performed using scanning laser polarimetry. Performance of the screening protocol was assessed in an eye hospital-based program in which 124 non-physician personnel aged 40 years or above were examined...

OBJECTIVE: To use a novel teaching exercise to encourage students to practice ophthalmoscopy and to measure the learning effect both subjectively and objectively. DESIGN: Comparative case series. PARTICIPANTS: One hundred thirty-one fourth-year medical students on their 1-week ophthalmology rotations with 89 in the experimental group and 42 in the control group. METHODS: Those in the experimental group had 1 eye dilated and their optic nerve photographed on the first day...

PURPOSE: To determine the role of Notch signaling in corneal epithelial migration and wound healing. METHODS: Immunolocalization of Notch1 was performed during epithelial wound healing in vivo in mouse corneal epithelial debridement wounds and in vitro in primary human corneal epithelial cells following a linear scratch wound. The effects of Notch inhibition, using the γ-secretase inhibitor N-(N-[3,5-difluorophenacetyl]-l-alanyl)-S-phenylglycine t-butyl ester (DAPT) or following stable transfection with Notch1-short hairpin RNA (shRNA), was evaluated in a scratch assay and transwell migration assay...

PURPOSE: To compare the aqueous concentration of erythropoietin (EPO) in eyes with primary open-angle (POAG), pseudoexfoliative (PXFG), and neovascular (NVG) glaucoma with age-matched eyes with cataracts, and to correlate its concentration with other factors including age, gender, intraocular pressure (IOP), type of glaucoma, and severity of glaucoma. METHODS: In this prospective non-randomized comparative study, a total of 26 eyes with cataracts (control group) and 92 glaucomatous eyes (POAG, 40 eyes; PXFG, 26 eyes; NVG, 26 eyes) were enrolled...

PURPOSE: To explore the effect of demographic characteristics on the outcomes of cataract surgery in terms of visual acuity and patient satisfaction, and gender role in the uptake of postoperative care. METHODS: Comprehensive ocular examinations were performed on 478 subjects (558 eyes) over the age of 50 years who underwent surgery for age-related cataract at the largest eye hospital in Iran. Demographic characteristics were obtained and surgical records were reviewed...

PURPOSE: To apply artificial intelligence models to predict the occurrence of posterior capsule opacification (PCO) after phacoemulsification. SETTING: Farabi Eye Hospital, Tehran, Iran. DESIGN: Clinical-based cross-sectional study. METHODS: The posterior capsule status of eyes operated on for age-related cataract and the need for laser capsulotomy were determined. After a literature review, data polishing, and expert consultation, 10 input variables were selected...

PURPOSE: To investigate the effect of blunt foreign body impact on a human cornea after photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) and LASIK using a simulation model. METHODS: Computational simulations were performed using a finite element analysis program (LS-Dyna, Livermore Software Technology Corp). The blunt foreign body was set to impact at the center of the corneal surface models (after PRK and LASIK) with thicknesses of 500, 450, 400, 350, and 300 μm. Corneal rupture was assumed to occur at a peak stress of 9...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Changes in corneal endothelial cell (CEC) indices 24 months after Ahmed valve (New World Medical, Inc., Rancho Cucamonga, CA) and single-plate Molteno implants (Molteno Ophthalmic Limited, Dunedin, New Zealand) were evaluated. PATIENTS AND METHODS: This cohort included Ahmed valve (29 eyes) or single-plate Molteno (28 eyes) implants. Preoperative and postoperative central CEC indices were compared. Main outcome measure was endothelial cell count...

PURPOSE: To provide objective evidence on the transition of cataract surgical care at Farabi Eye Hospital, Iran. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Two separate years, 2003 and 2006, were selected for evaluation. One thousand nine hundred fifty-seven surgical records of age-related cataract cases were randomly selected and reviewed. Three hundred fifty-three patients (405 eyes) in 2006 and 125 patients (153 eyes) in 2003 were selected randomly for a follow-up examination. The two phases were compared in terms of surgical routines, patient characteristics and outcomes for statistical differences...

PURPOSE: To present ultrasound biomicroscopic (UBM) findings and their clinical correlations in people with optically hazy media after injury at the Persian Wednesday Eve fireworks festival. METHODS: Ultrasound biomicroscopy was performed on a series of 32 eyes with severe closed-globe injuries by P40 ultrasound biomicroscope. RESULTS: The median age of the participants was 19 years, and 81.3% were male. All but one had gross hyphema. Seventy-five percent had an extension of the injury (at least) to Birmingham Eye Trauma Terminology zone II...
