Does lower eyelid entropion repair alter corneal topography?

The authors aimed to analyse the corneal morphology before and after advancement of posterior lower eyelid retractors (LERs) alone or in combination with a lateral tarsal strip (LTS) for lower eyelid involutional entropion. Retrospective analysis of 24 consecutive elderly patients...

Effect of preservative free fluoroquinolones on human corneal epithelial cells in vitro

Fluoroquinolones, including second generation (ofloxacin and ciprofloxacin), third generation (levofloxacin and tosufloxacin) and fourth generation (gatifloxacin and moxifloxacin), are a group of bactericidal agents used to treat multiple ocular infections. The third and fourth generation fluoroquinolones have enhanced Gram-positive activity...

Can intravitreal anti-VEGF injections affect corneal nerves?

This was a retrospective case-control study looking at the effect of anti-VEGF injections on corneal nerves (CN). Fifty-seven patients with a history of at least three anti-VEGF injections in one or both eyes and available confocal microscopic imaging were included...

Bandage contact lens cultures after corneal collagen cross-linking

Corneal collagen cross-linking (CCL) is a treatment modality that has been shown to stop the progression of keratoconus. There have also been reports that CCL acts as an antimicrobiologic agent in treating resistant microbial keratitis. This study aimed to investigate...

Therapeutic ocular surface medium for persistent corneal epithelial defect

Corneal ulcers and persistent epithelial defects (PEDs) are caused by a variety of different insults to the cornea, which includes limbal epithelial stem cell failure. PED may be resistant to healing with standard therapy such as frequent ointments and /...

Usefulness of gonioscopy to investigate cause of corneal oedema after cataract surgery

A 72-year-old man with ocular hypertension presented three months after routine right phacoemulsification and toric intraocular lens (IOL) implantation with a two-week history of an irritated right eye and a sudden deterioration in right vision. His preoperative spherical equivalence was...

Impact on the corneal and anterior chamber characteristics after femtosecond laser cataract surgery

Femtosecond laser cataract surgery (FLACS) is being increasingly used in the preparation for cataract surgery. Benefits of circular capsulorrhexis and reduced phacoemulsification energy have been shown in the literature. This study was designed to assess the anterior chamber characteristics and...

Can closing the eyelid during riboflavin induction phase of crosslinking increase corneal thickness?

Corneal crosslinking (CXL) with riboflavin and UVA irradiation is the standard treatment for preventing progression of keratoconus. Thinning of the cornea during the riboflavin loading phase was reported in previous studies which used riboflavin with dextran. A minimum stromal thickness...

Corneal transplantation in the United Kingdom: are we blind to the challenges that still exist after the Organ Donation Bill?

Corneal transplantation (CT) is a significant treatment option for a huge number of patients in the United Kingdom (UK) [1]. For an individual, CT results in a substantial improvement in quality of life. Penetrating keratoplasty with full thickness grafting has...

Q&A: Mr Goel and Mr Loomba on alcohol delamination and phototherapeutic keratectomy (PTK) for the treatment of recurrent corneal erosion syndrome

Recurrent corneal erosion syndrome is a common, recurrent condition caused by abnormal epithelial adhesion to the underlying basal lamina. Spontaneous breakdown of the corneal epithelium can lead to the sudden onset of ocular pain, blurred vision, tearing and photophobia, typically...

Effect of long-term scleral contact lenses on corneal topography, tear film and impression cytology in keratoconus

This study of 16 keratoconus patients aimed to investigate the impact of long-term scleral contact lens (ScCL) wear on corneal curvature, corneal thickness, tear film function and ocular surface in patients with keratoconus. Corneal topography, tear osmolarity test, Schirmer 1...

Histopathology-guided management of ocular surface squamous neoplasia (OSSN) with corneal stromal or scleral invasion using ruthenium-106 plaque brachytherapy

This is a retrospective interventional consecutive case series of 42 eyes of 42 patients with OSSN with histopathologically proven corneal stromal and / or scleral invasion following excision biopsy. The mean tumour basal diameter was 9.3mm and thickness of 3.1mm...
