Purpose: To test candidate genes TSC1 and TSC2 in a family affected by tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC) where proband was also diagnosed with bilateral keratoconus (KC) and to test the hypothesis that defects in the same gene may lead to a nonsyndromic KC. Methods: Next-generation sequencing of TSC1 and TSC2 genes was performed in a proband affected by TSC and KC. Identified mutation was confirmed by Sanger DNA sequencing. Whole exome sequencing (WES) was performed in patients with nonsyndromic KC...

PURPOSE: To assess the agreement between a swept-source optical biometry device (IOLMaster 700) and a Scheimpflug-based topography device (Pentacam HR) in measuring the corneal diameter. METHODS: A total of 100 eyes from 100 cataract surgery candidates were enrolled. The white-to-white (WTW) distance measurements provided by both devices were recorded and analyzed. A paired t test was performed to compare the mean values of the WTW distance between the IOLMaster 700 and Pentacam HR...

PURPOSE: To develop clinical practice guidelines (CPGs) for prevention, diagnosis, treatment and follow-up of ocular injuries caused by exposure to mustard gas. METHODS: The clinical questions were designed by the guideline team. Websites and databases including National Guidelines Clearinghouse, National Institute for Clinical Excellence, Cochrane, and PubMed were searched to find related CPGs and explore possible answers to the clinical questions. Since there were no relevant CPGs in the literature, related articles in Persian and English languages were extracted...

INTRODUCTION: This study aimed to determine intraocular pressure (IOP) and central corneal thickness (CCT) measurements in healthy Persian children to find clinical reference values in this ethnicity. Additionally, we examined the possible relationship between these measurements. METHODS: This cross-sectional study included 262 eyes of 131 Persian primary school children between 6 and 13 years of age. All eyes were healthy and had no anterior or posterior segment abnormalities, corneal disease, or evidence of glaucoma...

Purpose. Evaluating the therapeutic effect of topical and intrastromal voriconazole and topical natamycin on Fusarium keratitis. Methods. 24 rabbits were selected. The stroma of their corneas was inoculated with suspension of Fusarium solani species complex. Seven days after injection they were divided into 4 groups randomly: the first group was treated with topical voriconazole (TV) 1% for one week, the second one with one-time intrastromal injection of voriconazole (ISV) 50 microgram/0.1 mL, and the third group with topical gel of natamycin (TN) for one week, and the last one did not receive any antifungal treatment...

BACKGROUND: To evaluate the agreement in intraocular pressure (IOP) measurements by Ocular Response Analyzer (ORA) and Tono-Pen XL (TXL) with the Goldmann Applanation Tonometer (GAT) and to examine corneal biomechanical properties in aphakic glaucoma patients with a central corneal thickness (CCT) >600 µ. METHODS: Thirty-six eyes of aphakic glaucoma patients (group 1) and 40 eyes of normal children (group 2) were studied. The mean ORA and TXL IOP values were compared with the GAT-IOP values...

PURPOSE: To compare 2 automated devices for measuring the horizontal corneal diameter [white-to-white (WTW) distance]. METHODS: In this prospective comparative case series, the WTW distance was measured by independent examiners using the Pentacam HR and the Orbscan IIz in 101 eyes of 101 healthy refractive surgery candidates. Statistical evaluation was performed using the paired t test, Pearson correlation, and the Bland-Altman method for comparison of measurement techniques...

PURPOSE: The primary objective was to evaluate whether postoperative alterations in corneal shape (as reflected by keratometry values) affect endothelial cell profile measurements after deep anterior lamellar keratoplasty (DALK) in a group of patients with keratoconus. Secondary objective was to describe the pattern of changes in corneal endothelial cell profile measurements during the first 3 years after DALK. METHODS: In this prospective interventional case series, we enrolled patients who had significant keratoconus and were scheduled for DALK (Melles technique)...

PURPOSE: To compare and evaluate the agreement between keratometry readings using three devices: the Pentacam HR, the Orbscan IIz, and the TMS-4 topographer. METHODS: In this prospective comparative study, 115 eyes from 115 healthy refractive surgery candidates were sequentially examined using three devices. Fourier analysis was used to evaluate corneal astigmatism in these subjects. The outcome measures comprised steep and flat keratometry readings, corneal astigmatism, the mean keratometry reading, and the J0 and J45 components...

PURPOSE: To review the current literature concerning the use of bevacizumab in treating neovascular disorders affecting the anterior segment ocular structures. METHODS: The authors reviewed the literature on anti-vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) therapy with bevacizumab for various anterior segment neovascular disorders that was indexed in MEDLINE (up to January 2011). RESULTS: Response to bevacizumab anti-VEGF therapy is variable, based on the amount of scarring, the chronicity and extent of corneal neovascularization, the disease process, and the medication formulation and its route of administration...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the clinical and epidemiological characteristics of children with ocular trauma. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed the medical records of 278 children (aged 15 years or less) hospitalized with ocular injuries and treated as inpatients at a tertiary referral center in Shiraz, Iran, from 2005 to 2008. Nominal variables were evaluated with a Chi-square test. A P-value less than 0.05 indicated statistical significance. RESULTS: The cohort was comprised of 205 (74%) males, outnumbering females by a ratio of 2...

BACKGROUND: The accuracy of biometric measurements, particularly axial length, is critical for precise intraocular lens (IOL) power calculation and predictable refractive outcomes after cataract surgery. Partial coherence interferometry-based systems represent progress toward measurements that are more precise and reliable. The purpose of this study was to evaluate a new noncontact optical biometer (Lenstar; Haag-Streit AG, Koeniz, Switzerland) using optical low-coherence reflectometry and to compare the biometric measurements (including axial length, keratometry, anterior chamber depth, and IOL power) with those obtained from current clinical instrumentation...

BACKGROUND: Anterior chamber depth measurement is used frequently in cataract and refractive surgery for advanced intraocular lens (IOL) power calculation formulas and implantation of phakic IOLs. In this article, we show agreement in anterior chamber depth measurements in normal eyes among 3 noncontact systems, namely Galilei, HR Pentacam, and Orbscan II. METHODS: The anterior chamber depth measurements were obtained with Galilei, HR Pentacam, and the Orbscan II in both eyes of 37 healthy subjects...

OBJECTIVE: To report a case of fungal keratitis caused by Paecilomyces lilacinus (P. lilacinus) associated with a retained intracorneal hair. METHODS: A 61-year-old man developed pain, decreased vision, hyperemia, and corneal infiltrates in his right eye without any predisposing factor. An intracorneal hair had migrated superiorly in the corneal stroma, giving rise to 3 separate stromal infiltrates. The patient demonstrated a waxing and waning course over several months despite antimicrobial and steroid therapy...
