From stereoblind to stereopsis

This study sought to examine the postoperative stereopsis in stereoblind patients with normal or corrected visual acuity. Twenty patients (10 female / male) with an average age of 25.35±6.34 years were studied with primary horizontal comitant strabismus (14 exotropia, six...

In vivo confocal microscopy, principles and use in keratitis Part 1: Principles

In 1968 Maurice introduced the concept of high powered specular microscopy, it was in that very year that the first scanning confocal microscope was proposed. Marvin Minsky developed the first confocal microscope in 1955 named the ‘double focusing scanning microscope’....
