Purpose : Anterior segment optical coherence tomography (AS-OCT) has rapidly increased in popularity as a means of studying the anatomy and biomechanics of the anterior segment. While physiologic factors such as pupil size are known to affect AS-OCT measurements, it is not known if measurement values vary with the time of day. This study examines the diurnal variation of anterior segment structures in young healthy eyes by comparing AS-OCT measurements values obtained in the morning and late afternoon. Methods : Eight subjects ranging from age 28 to 40 with no history of eye conditions or intraocular surgery were selected for this study (6 male, 2 female; mean age 31.2 ± 4.5 years). Anterior segment imaging was performed with a CASIA2 AS-OCT device (Tomey Corporation, Nagoya, Japan) in a fixed lighting environment between the hours of 8 to 9 AM and 4 to 5 PM. Four evenly spaced AS-OCT images per eye were analyzed. Nine parameters including angle opening distance (AOD), angle recess area (ARA), ...
Anterior Eye Segment information including symptoms, causes, diseases, symptoms, treatments, and other medical and health issues.
This study provides a detailed description of immunolocalization of two oxygen-binding proteins, neuroglobin (Ngb) and cytoglobin (Cygb), in the anterior segment of healthy human and canine eyes. Specific antibodies against Ngb and Cygb were used to examine their distribution patterns in anterior segment structures including the cornea, iris, trabecular meshwork, canal of Schlemm, ciliary body, and lens. Patterns of immunoreactivity (IR) were imaged with confocal scanning laser and conventional microscopy. Analysis of sectioned human and canine eyes showed Ngb and Cygb IR in the corneal epithelium and endothelium. In the iris, Ngb and Cygb IR was localized to the anterior border and the stroma, iridal sphincter, and dilator muscle. In the iridocorneal angle, Ngb and Cygb were detected in endothelial cells of the trabecular meshwork and canal of Schlemm in human. In the ciliary body, Ngb and Cygb IR was localized to the non-pigmented ciliary epithelium of the pars plana and pars plicata and in ciliary
In adult p120fl/fl;Wnt1Cre eyes, the corneal stromal cells were disorganized and the corneal epithelium was thinner than in WT eyes. Since corneal stroma originates from NCC and p120ctn is ablated in the corneal stroma of p120fl/fl;Wnt1Cre mice, the observed stromal disorganization might be related directly to p120ctn depletion. However, we have no conclusive evidence for this hypothesis and disorganization of the corneal stroma could also be secondary to incomplete formation of corneal endothelium. In any event, the thinner corneal epithelium in mutant mice reflects an indirect nonautonomous effect because these cells are not derived from NCC. Interestingly, properly formed corneal endothelium has an important role during the development of the anterior segment. 39,40 In the chicken eye, the progressive organization of NCC-derived mesenchymal cells in the anterior chamber, including the induction of N-cadherin expression and a mesenchymal-to-epithelial transition to corneal endothelial cells, ...

Methods: This study involved 58 eyes of 58 open-angle glaucoma cases and 72 eyes of 72 age-matched normal-open-angle control subjects. Iridocorneal angle structures in nasal and temporal regions and anterior chamber depth (ACD) were measured using AS-OCT. Axial length and refractive error were measured by use of an ocular biometer and auto refractor keratometer. Angle opening distance (AOD), angle recess area (ARA), and trabecular-iris space area (TISA), measured at 500 µm (TISA500) and 750 µm (TISA750)
BOCA RATON, FL, March 12, 2014 - 21st Century Television will feature Oculus, Inc., a medical equipment company specializing in the anterior eye, in an upcoming segment of the shows Health feature. President and CEO of Oculus, Michael Wolber, is interviewed by 21st Century Televisions Jackie Bales. Wolber discusses the importance of eye screening as it relates to proper treatments. He states that the worst thing that a patient can do is conduct inadequate research. Wolber goes on to say that, "These days there are several options, but not every option is suitable for every patient." Ten years ago Oculus created the Oculus Pentacam, which enables doctors to see the entire anterior eye segment located in front of the vitreous humour. The anterior eye segment is comprised of the cornea, iris, ciliary body, and lens. The Oculus Pentacam allows doctors to conduct early screening for abnormalities that would make their patients candidates for refractive eye and cataract surgery. The Oculus Pentacam ...

The Pentacam is a high-resolution rotating Scheimpflug camera and slit illumination system that enables precise and reliable imaging and analysis of the anterior segment structures of the eye such as the cornea, iris and lens. Images only take 2 seconds to acquire, and do not require any contact with the eye. A 3-dimensional virtual model of the anterior segment is then constructed, and data points are used to calculate corneal topography and elevation on the front and back surface, total corneal power as well as anterior chamber depth and volume amongst other parameters. There are many additional features available on this machine that aid the diagnosis and management of anterior segment diseases such as keratoconus, and assist in pre-operative planning for cataract, corneal and refractive surgery. This is especially helpful for patients who have previously had laser vision correction, and enables detailed analysis of different parameters to optimize post-operative outcomes for patients.. ...

Methods. Preparation of adult human retinal pigment epithelium cultures. Human eyes obtained from the National Disease Research Interchange (NDRI, Philadelphia, PA) were processed within 48 h of donor death. The ages and other information regarding donor eyes are shown in Table 1. Four samples from human donor eyes were used; given the expense and availability of human tissue, small sample sizes have been used in the past to generate data on gene expression within human tissue [16-18]. Primary RPE cell cultures were prepared from the posterior poles of the human cadaver eyes as described previously [19]. Upon receipt in the laboratory, eyes were cleaned of extraocular tissue. The anterior segment structures, vitreous, and retina were removed, leaving an eyecup with RPE on the inner surface. For these studies, 500,000 primary ahRPE cells were collected with trypsin from each pair of globes harvested from four individual human donors (age range 48 to 82 years, Table 1). The cells were incubated in ...

Purpose: Although the frequency in which practitioners are fitting scleral contact lenses is increasing, the recommendation for proper tear layer depth (thickness) varies amongst experts. The main goal of this paper is to clinically verify the effect of varying tear layer depths on induced corneal edema during lens wear. Methods: Ten subjects with healthy eyes were fitted with scleral lenses on their right eye. Each of them was fit with two different lenses: one with an apical clearance of 200 μm and another with an apical clearance of 600 μm. They wore the lenses for 8 hours on two different days, with at least a one week wash-out period. Lenses were applied at 8 a.m. on each of the testing days. Pachymetry measurements were taken one day prior to lens wear at 4 p.m., on the day of wear prior to lens application, and after removal of the lenses at 4 p.m. Measurements were collected using both the Pentacam® HR Corneal Tomographer, as well as the Visante Anterior Segment Optical Coherence ...

Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is a major cause of vision loss in the elderly. To better study the pathobiology of AMD, postmortem eyes offer an excellent opportunity to correlate optical coherence tomography (OCT) imaging characteristics with histopathology. However, postmortem eyes from autopsy present challenges to standard OCT imaging including opaque anterior segment structures and standard of care autopsy processing resulting in oblique views to the macula. To overcome these challenges, we report a custom periscope attached by a standard mount to an OCT sample arm and demonstrate high quality macular OCT acquisitions in autopsy-processed eyes.. © 2017 Optical Society of America.

Hundred twenty-eight eyes of 73 patients with moderate to high myopia and/or astigmatism (spherical equivalent < -10.0 dpt, astigmatism < 5.0 dpt) were measured with non-contact tonometry and ultra-high-speed camera (Corvis® ST, Oculus) before and after surgical treatment. Fourty-eight eyes were treated with the femtosecondlaser for flap generation (VisuMax®, Carl Zeiss Meditec) and ablated with an eximer laser (Mel 80 ™, Carl Zeiss Meditec). Eighty eyes were treated with an all-femto-procedure by generating an intrastromal lenticule and then extracting the lenticule through a small incision (ReLEx-smile: small incision lenticle extraction). All patients were operated by the same surgeon (RW). Preoperatively and one month to three months postoperatively following data were analyzed: UDVA, CDVA, refraction, biomicroscopy of anterior eye segment, IOP with non-contact tonometry and Goldmann tonometry and deformability of the cornea using the Corvis® ST. Data were analyzed using SPSS version ...
The aim of this study was preparation and evaluation of ciprofloxacin-containing minitablets for ocular use, in an attempt to obtain prolonged and controlled drug release to the anterior eye segment. Following initial studies on ciprofloxacin powder, it was formulated into ocular minitablets. For this purpose, ciprofloxacin along with various amounts of different sustained release cellulose derivatives (HPMC, Na CMC, HEC and EC), Carbopol 974P, solubilizer and lubricant were directly compressed into minitablets, using concave 3 mm diameter punches. All the prepared formulations were evaluated in terms of physicochemical tests, including uniformity of weight, friability, crushing strength, water uptake and in-vitro drug release studies. It was found that the type and amount of cellulose derivatives used, can influence the rate of drug release. The finally selected formulation (B3) contained ethyl cellulose, Carbopol 974P, mannitol, sodium stearyl fumarate and ciprofloxacin, which showed more than 80%
A total of 15 eyes were scanned with the Visante Omni. A lid speculum was used to keep the rabbits eye open during the measurements to ensure that the eyelids did not block the 10-mm diameter mapping area. The cornea was kept wet regularly with balanced salt solution to prevent the ocular surface from drying. First, the cornea was scanned with ATLAS corneal topographer, incorporated with the Visante Omni, where 8000 data points of the anterior corneal surface were recorded. The anterior corneal topography data were then transferred to the Visante OCT station via a network link. The rabbit was then moved to the Visante OCT station to scan for global pachymetry. Pachymetry alignment with anterior corneal surface data, obtained from the ATLAS corneal topographer, required the observer to locate the center of the pupil, which was achieved when the vertex produced a vertical white line behind the center of the cornea. Thereafter, the Visante OCT system would lock onto the vertex and track it so that ...
Purpose: To evaluate the anatomic stability of an implanted Boston Type I Keratoprosthesis (KPro)-donor cornea interface, and assess the presence or absence of a potential space (gap) between the KPro front plate and donor cornea using anterior segment optical coherence tomography (AS- OCT). The presence of a gap would raise concerns of a possible pathway for the exchange of fluid between the ocular surface and the anterior chamber.. Methods: Fourteen eyes implanted with a Boston Type I KPro were studied by the non-contact technique of AS-OCT (AC Cornea OCT prototype, OTI, Canada). All the KPro devices had been implanted at least 4 weeks prior to the study (range: 1 to 22 months). Seven eyes had aphakic Kpros and the other 7 had pseudophakic implants. Anesthetized eyes were imaged before and during pressure application using sterile cotton tip applicators. Pressure was applied for 10 seconds just outside the temporal limbal area. Images were analyzed for any possible changes in the KPro-donor ...
The phenotype seen in this 14q32 linked family comprises varying degrees of microphthalmia in association with severe anterior segment abnormalities. There is, however, no evidence of coloboma or of anomalies of the lens, vitreous, or retina. While it is possible that altered scleral rigidity in these abnormal eyes may have rendered the Schiotz tonometer readings somewhat inaccurate it seems certain that raised intraocular pressure forms part of this microphthalmia phenotype. Since highly elevated intraocular pressures may be observed even at the age of 1 year it is possible that this may contribute significantly to the progressive corneal changes observed including staphyloma formation. The marked corneal opacity observed at this age (Fig 2A) may be due in part to the raised intraocular pressure, but appears rather too severe to be caused by this alone. Since three eyes belonging to older family members were found to have total sclerocornea it seems likely that corneal changes are a primary ...

This technique provides diagnostically significant information in vivo for the cornea, anterior chamber, chamber angle, iris, posterior chamber, zonules, ciliary body, and lens, and is of great value in assessment of the mechanisms of glaucoma
Background: Isolated minor T-wave abnormalities not accompanied by ST segment abnormalities or findings of left ventricular (LV) hypertrophy are frequently observed in the general population and their prognostic value is less clear as ST segment abnormalities. However, it may depend on presence or absence of hypertension.. Methods: Associations of cardiovascular mortality with the isolated minor T-wave abnormalities were studied in citizens who received ECG in the health examination of Moriguchi city, Osaka, Japan in 1997, stratified by presence or absence of hypertension. ECGs were read by 3 cardiologists with the judgment of minor or major abnormalities blinded to any clinical information including blood pressure except for age and sex. Subjects with any major abnormalities on the ECG, history of cardiovascular disease, left bundle branch block, intraventricular conduction delay, or non-sinus rhythm were excluded..

PURPOSE: Mutations in murine and human versions of an ancestrally related gene usually result in similar phenotypes. However, interspecies differences exist, and in the case of two forkhead transcription factor genes (FOXC1 and FOXC2), these differences include corneal or anterior segment phenotypes, respectively. This study was undertaken to determine whether such discrepancies provide an opportunity for identifying novel human-murine ocular phenotypes. METHODS: Four pedigrees with early-onset glaucoma phenotypes secondary to segmental chromosomal duplications or deletions encompassing FOXC1 and 18 individuals from 9 FOXC2 mutation pedigrees underwent detailed ocular phenotyping. Subsequently, mice with mutations in Foxc1 or a related forkhead gene, Foxe3, were assessed for features of the human phenotypes. RESULTS: A significant increase in central corneal thickness was present in affected individuals from the segmental duplication pedigrees compared with their unaffected relatives (mean
