Conclusions: Immune cells were observed to a similar extent in the eyes of PK, DSEK, and DMEK subjects even in the absence of any clinical sign of immune rejection. A further prospective longitudinal study will evaluate the effect of immune cells on long-term graft survival and the risk for graft rejection.
Purpose: To ascertain whether death-to-preservation time (DPT) is associated with donor endothelial cell density (ECD), primary graft failure (PGF), and infection. Methods: Donor corneas aged older than 10 years with ECD 2000 to 4500 cells/mm2 were procured between 2011 and 2018 by a single eye bank. Donor corneas were analyzed retrospectively for the main outcome measures of PGF, infection, and ECD. Means and proportions of study parameters were compared between corneas with long and short DPT, defined as greater or less than 14 hours, respectively, excluding corneas with a history of intraocular surgery or dia...
Purpose: Phacoemulsification in eyes with deep anterior lamellar keratoplasty (DALK) is associated with possible decreased graft survival and difficult IOL power calculation. We assessed cataract surgery in eyes with previous DALK. Methods: Thirty-three consecutive eyes with DALK and further phacoemulsification with scleral incision were included in this retrospective study. At each postoperative visit, eyes were assessed with manifest refraction, optical coherence tomography, specular corneal topography, and noncontact wide-field specular microscopy. Results: The average postkeratoplasty follow-up time w...
Conclusions: Topical steroids and immunosuppressants can induce fulminant CMV corneal endotheliitis with cataract progression and irreversible mydriasis. In these cases, early diagnosis and treatment, including topical 0.5% ganciclovir, glaucoma surgery, cataract surgery, and endothelial keratoplasty, are necessary for preserving the patient's vision.
CONCLUSION: IVCM plays a vital role in the early diagnosis, in the severity grading, and in the evaluation of the clinical effectiveness of MGD-related diseases, by which the morphological changes of the tarsal gland after phacoemulsification can be observed in a timely manner to predict the occurrence of MGD.PMID:34650750 | PMC:PMC8507046
AbstractThe 21st century has seen a steadily increasing social awareness of animal suffering, with increased attention to ethical considerations. Developing new integrated approaches to testing and assessment (IATA) strategies is an Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) goal to reduce animal testing. Currently, there is a lack of alternative models to test for ocular surface toxicity (aside from irritation) in lieu of the Draize eye irritation test (OECD guideline No. 405) performed in rabbits. Five alternative in vitro or ex vivo methods have been validated to replace this reference test, but only ...

AbstractPurposeBecause of the direct contact of intravitreal silicone oil (SO) with the subcapsular membrane, cataract is one of the main SO-related complications. In a group of patients, condense subcapsular opacification occurs, which adds difficulty and risk when having sequential treatment of it. The aim of the current study is to assess the long-term outcomes of pars plana subcapsulotomy to remove condense subcapsular opacification in combined surgery of SO removal and phacoemulsification.MethodsRetrospective cohort study. Consecutive patients who were scheduled to have combined surgery of SO removal and phacoemulsifi...
