PURPOSE: To determine predictive factors for intra-operative cyclotorsion in photorefractive keratectomy (PRK). METHODS: A retrospective statistical analysis of medical records pertaining to 3,996 eyes undergoing PRK was conducted. Outcome measures of this study were the likely existence of statistically significant relations between diverse and potentially influential factors and the occurrence of intraoperative cyclotorsion. RESULTS: A total of 96% of examined medical records indicated some degree of cyclotorsion with the absolute mean intraoperative value of 1...

Contact lens-related problems are common and can result in severe sight-threatening complications or contact lens drop out if not addressed properly. We systematically reviewed the most important and the most common contact lens-related complications and their diagnosis, epidemiology, and management according to the literature published in the last 20 years.

Purpose. To evaluate the difference in biomechanical properties between contact lens induced corneal warpage and normal and keratoconic eyes. Method. Prospective observational case control study, where 94 eyes of 47 warpage suspicious and 46 eyes of 23 keratoconic patients were included. Warpage suspected cases were followed until a definite diagnosis was made (warpage, normal, or keratoconus). Results. 44 eyes of 22 patients had contact lens related corneal warpage. 46 eyes of 23 people were diagnosed as nonwarpage normal eyes...

AIM: To compare refractive error changes in retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) patients treated with diode and red lasers. METHODS: A randomized double-masked clinical trial was performed, and infants with threshold or prethreshold type 1 ROP were assigned to red or diode laser groups. Gestational age, birth weight, pretreatment cycloplegic refraction, time of treatment, disease stage, zone and disease severity were recorded. Patients received either red or diode laser treatment and were regularly followed up for retina assessment and refraction...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate fitting feasibility, efficacy, and safety of mini scleral contact lenses in correcting post corneal graft vision. METHODS: Prospective interventional case series, 56 visually unsatisfied post corneal graft eyes of 45 patients were fitted with miniscleral lenses (15.8 mm). Keratometric values, UCVA and BSCVA, fit, best corrected vision with the lens, decision to order lens, comfortable daily wearing time (CDWT), contact lens handling issues, and contact lens related complications were documented...

BACKGROUND: Cholelithiasis is one of the most prevalent gastrointestinal disorders requiring hospitalization.  While different factors influence gallstone formation in patients, these factors are not the same in different societies or in different geographical locations. AIM: To evaluate the epidemiology and risk factors associated with gallstone formation in a large population group, the present survey was conducted in northern Iran. METHODS: In 6143 asymptomatic subjects, the incidence of gallstone formation as well as risk factors were evaluated through a structured questionnaire, physical examination and ultrasonography study...

PURPOSE: To evaluate changes of retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thickness after panretinal photocoagulation (PRP) in red versus green laser-treated eyes. PROCEDURE: This is a prospective, randomized, fellow-eye controlled clinical trial conducted on 60 eyes of 30 patients (mean age 52.3 ± 7.8 years; 57% male) with early- to high-risk proliferative diabetic retinopathy type II diabetes who received standard red or green laser treatment. Scanning laser polarimetry (GDx) was performed to evaluate RNFL thickness at baseline and at week 6...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: There are many edentulous people with severely resorbed residual ridges and non-resilient lin-ing mucosa that are unable to tolerate occlusal forces during functional and parafunctional movements. Lining the tissue surface of dentures with a flexible material can theoretically distribute and absorb forces with cushioning effect. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of a soft liner on stress levels in mandibular complete denture and its supporting struc-tures by finite element analysis...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate fitting feasibility and efficacy of mini scleral contact lenses in moderate to severe dry eye patients. METHODS: Prospective interventional case series, this study included those patients with grades III and IV dry eye disease, whose symptoms could not be controlled by conventional treatments. Demographic data, UCVA, BSCVA were evaluated before fitting. Mini scleral lens fit was assessed by single experienced practitioner and best corrected vision with mini scleral lens was assessed...

PURPOSE: Prosthetic replacement of the ocular surface ecosystem (PROSE) uses custom designed and fabricated prosthetic devices in a treatment that restores vision, supports healing, reduces symptoms and improves quality of life in patients with complex corneal disease. We report the success rate for PROSE treatment of corneal ectasia. METHODS: Records of 59 patients with corneal ectasia seen in consultation over 6 months were reviewed. Candidacy for treatment, topographic indices, change in visual acuity, achievement of satisfactory fit, device wear status and change in visual function at 6 months were recorded...

UNLABELLED: Ocular trauma in children can result in catastrophic visual and psychological outcomes both for the child and his/her family. According to the WHO, childhood blindness is one of the major causes of avoidable blindness and so target of the Vision 2020 program. To achieve this program's goals, it is necessary to explore the epidemiological patterns of ocular trauma in different countries which in its turn could be a valuable means to guide us in developing preventive measures...

PURPOSE: Occupational eye injuries are among the major causes of ocular trauma and can cause severe visual impairment, with even minor injuries incurring considerable financial costs due to work absenteeism. This study was designed to evaluate the epidemiology of eye trauma and the role of occupational injuries at Farabi Eye Hospital, which is the largest eye hospital in Iran. METHODS: In this prospective, cross-sectional study, 822 eyes from 768 trauma patients presenting to Farabi Eye Hospital were enrolled in the study...

BACKGROUND: This study was conducted to determine the treatment outcome of incompletely removed, histopathologically documented ocular surface squamous neoplasia with mitomycin-C. METHODS: Through an interventional case series, 17 eyes of 17 patients presented with incompletely removed ocular surface squamous neoplasia were treated according to a protocol using two to three alternate seven-day courses of 0.04% mitomycin-C. Clinical recurrence was re-treated with the same protocol...
