  • 71 Bietti crystalline corneoretinal dystrophy: An autosomal recessive ocular disease characterized by retinal degeneration and marginal corneal dystrophy. (malacards.org)
  • 1 . An ocular drug delivery method comprising penetrating at least an outer capsule of an ocular lens with a conduit to create an aperture in the lens and introducing a drug into the lens through the aperture, wherein the aperture is self-sealing upon removal of the conduit. (google.com.au)
  • 13 . A method that minimizes cataract formation when an agent is provided to an ocular lens, the method comprising piercing the lens with a needle of 30 gauge or thinner, introducing an agent into the lens through the needle, and withdrawing the needle from the lens. (google.com.au)
  • 14 . A localized ocular drug delivery method comprising penetrating at least an outer capsule of an ocular lens with a conduit to create an aperture, providing an agent directly into the lens via the conduit through the aperture, and withdrawing the conduit wherein the agent is substantially confined within the lens. (google.com.au)
  • A cataract refers to any opacity of the ocular crystalline lens. (google.com.au)
  • One embodiment of the invention is an ocular drug delivery method by penetrating at least the outer capsule of the lens with a fine conduit that creates a self-sealing aperture when it is removed, then introducing a drug into the lens through this aperture. (google.com.au)
  • retina
  • 53 Bietti crystalline corneoretinal dystrophy is an autosomal recessive retinal dystrophy characterized by numerous tiny glistening yellow-white crystals at the posterior pole of the retina, associated with atrophy of the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE), pigment clumps, and choroidal sclerosis.

  • The IOL is a clear plastic lens that focuses light onto the retina, improving vision. (orlandosc.com)
  • cataracts
  • With cataracts, the normally clear lens becomes cloudy, affecting the transmission of light through the lens and resulting in loss of visual acuity. (google.com.au)
  • crystals
  • The configuration of the chitin crystals and the types of protein forming the matrix between the chitin crystalline lattice vary within the carapace layers (Neville 1975). (thefreedictionary.com)
  • Avoid
  • Dummy atoms were included in order to complete the periodicity of the crystalline lattice and avoid edge discontinuities in the total electrostatic potential. (thefreedictionary.com)
  • visual
  • If visual loss is significant, surgical removal of the lens may be warranted, with lost optical power usually replaced with a plastic intraocular lens (IOL). (wikibooks.org)
  • We used a new SS-OCT laboratory prototype designed to enhance the visualization of the crystalline lens and imaged the entire anterior segment of both eyes in two groups of participants: patients scheduled to undergo cataract surgery, n = 17, age range 36 to 91 years old, and volunteers without visual complains, n = 14, age range 20 to 81 years old.

  • Cryoextraction is a form of ICCE that freezes the lens with a cryogenic substance such as liquid nitrogen . (wikibooks.org)
  • regularly
  • omnifocal lens one whose power increases continuously and regularly in a downward direction, avoiding the discontinuity in field and power inherent in bifocal and trifocal lenses . (thefreedictionary.com)
  • As the crystalline lattice of silicon has a regularly ordered atomic structure, implanted atoms tend to penetrate through the ordered spacing of the lattice and reach the deeper region. (thefreedictionary.com)
