Is DSAEK or DMEK better for failed penetrating keratoplasty (PKP)?

This retrospective study involved 52 patients with failed penetrating keratoplasty. Twenty-eight eyes underwent Descemet membrane endothelial keratoplasty (DMEK) and 24 eyes underwent Descemet stripping automated endothelial keratoplasty (DSAEK). Data collection included demographic characteristics, number of previous corneal transplants, previous glaucoma...

Biometry measure after cycloplegia

The authors investigated optical biometry in an Indian paediatric population on normal and cataract paediatric eyes and studied the effect of cycloplegia on different parameters measured in these eyes. This was a prospective study of 76 eyes aged five to...

Surgery for myopic esotropia

The authors report a modified Jenson procedure for the treatment of high axial myopic esotropia. Their study includes 15 eyes of 13 patients with a mean age of 50±10.4 years. Mean spherical refraction was -22.53±6.06 dioptres. Mean axial length was...
