  • Diseases
  • The recent intense study of pathogenic ocular angiogenesis-an abnormal growth of blood vessels in the eye responsible for the major blinding diseases throughout the world-has yielded an overwhelming flood of scientific findings, novel insights, and possible future therapeutic approaches. (springer.com)
  • Corneal biomechanical properties influence the results and outcomes of ocular measurements and procedures, and may hold clues to diagnosing and managing ocular diseases. (bio-medicine.org)
  • Dr. Yiu is a clinician-scientist and vitreoretinal surgeon at the UC Davis Medical Center who uses advanced ocular imaging technologies to study diseases of the eye. (ucdavis.edu)
  • toxicity
  • Moreover, most of the ocular associated toxicity of these drugs would not be picked up until they are being used by many patients because only broad disorders are studied during clinical trials with small groups of patients, such as gastrointestinal disorders, renal and urinary disorders, infections, and nervous system disorders, so specific ocular-related complications are not examined or published even in the official label of the drug," Dr. Koh writes.

  • corneal
  • The Reichert Ocular Response Analyzer provides a new measurement of corneal tissue properties called Corneal Hysteresis (CH) that is a result of viscous damping in the corneal tissue. (bio-medicine.org)
  • There are several active areas of research including cell-biomaterial interactions, use of engineering inspired approaches for accelerating wound healing, development of an improved artificial cornea, development of improved surgical approaches for corneal transplantation, biophysical attributes of the extracellular matrix and their relevance to health and disease of the eye, and finally, comparative ocular anatomy and physiological optics. (ucdavis.edu)
  • immune
  • As Dr. Koh explains, the eye-really an extension of the brain-is an immune-privileged organ because only when the blood-ocular barriers are compromised will there be cells and flares in the anterior chamber. (aoa.org)
  • burns
  • Ocular burns and exposures represent a common presenting complaint in the emergency department. (springer.com)
  • Philadelphia
  • PHILADELPHIA - Wills Eye Hospital presented the Brady-Shields Endowed Chair in Ocular Oncology to inaugural recipient Jerry A. Shields, MD, co-founder and director emeritus of the Ocular Oncology Service at Wills Eye Hospital. (healio.com)
  • patients
  • No chinrest and a soft, quiet air puff make the Ocular Response Analyzer a comfortable, non-intimidating experience for your patients. (bio-medicine.org)
  • Remember to look at patients' active medications and ask about other possible over-the-counter medications and supplements that may show up as ocular complications. (aoa.org)
  • Although many patients actively taking cancer immunotherapy or biologics would be managed in a hospital or cancer care setting, case reports like this demonstrate the importance of primary eye care providers understanding the ocular ramifications of the medications their patients use, especially cancer treatments. (aoa.org)
  • mild
  • When the term "autosomal recessive ocular albinism" ("AROA") is used, it usually refers to mild variants of oculocutaneous albinism rather than ocular albinism, which is X-linked . (wikipedia.org)
  • guidelines
  • New guidelines on the surveillance of children at risk for developing retinoblastoma underscore the role doctors of optometry have in catching early signs of the most common ocular cancer in young children. (aoa.org)
  • common
  • There are multiple methods of determining ocular dominance and this common technique is termed sighting dominance. (aao.org)
  • injury
  • KIRMANI, M., RYAN, S. J. - In vitro measurement of contractile force of transvitreal membranes formed after penetrating ocular injury. (springer.com)
  • To my knowledge, this is the first report of significant ocular injury associated with this new form of assault. (hindawi.com)
  • drugs
  • Researchers at the Cullen Eye Institute at Baylor College of Medicine have developed nanowafer technology to delivery ocular drugs, an alternative to inefficient eye drops. (modernmedicine.com)
  • visual
  • This book meets the growing demand among ophthalmologists, optometrists and orthoptists, in training and in practice, as well as visual neuroscientists, to have a clear, succinct and well-written textbook to objectively cover the subject of ocular and visual physiology. (springer.com)
  • Ocular and visual physiology is a core knowledge component for these disciplines, and yet is often difficult to understand. (springer.com)
  • Ocular and Visual Physiology - Clinical Application is essential reading for any one hoping to have a clear understanding of the subject. (springer.com)
