• thickness
  • This study is designed to evaluate the efficacy of the Hyper-CL™ lens contact lens on corneal edema thickness as compared with salt solution treatment only in subjects suffering from corneal edema. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • Treatment with the Hyper-CL™ lens may result with greater reduction in edema thickness as compared with treatment with salt solution only in subjects suffering from corneal edema. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • Primary endpoint will be the percent of subjects with corneal thickness decrease of at least 8% during the one week treatment with the Hyper-CL™ lens + salt solution. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • The purpose of this clinical research study is to investigate the efficacy of predosing patients undergoing cataract surgery with the potent corticosteroid difluprednate ophthalmic emulsion 0.05% compared to prednisolone acetate 1% on corneal edema (swelling), and retinal thickness. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • Central Corneal thickness was measured before and after swelling and after the treatment with modified osmolar agents using the Vevo 2100 high frequency, high resolution ultrasound imaging system (Fujifilm VisualSonics, Inc.), B-mode images were acquired using the MicroScan™ Transducers MS550D. (arvojournals.org)
  • To assess the factors affecting early postoperative corneal edema (EPCE) after phacoemulsification in patients without any corneal pathology, and also evaluate EPCE in patients with thick central corneal thickness (CCT) in comparison with patients with normal range of CCT. (escrs.org)
  • In patients who had worn contact lenses for approximately five years or more, a 30 to 50 μm reduction in central and peripheral corneal thickness has been recorded. (wikipedia.org)
  • cloudiness
  • Some pedigrees suggest inherited primary congenital is autosomal dominant but three major autosomal recessive loci have been identified: GLC3A - on chromosome 2 (2p21) GLC3B - on chromosome 1 (1p36) GLC3C - on chromosome 14 (14q24.3) Corneal cloudiness may have a myriad of causes. (wikipedia.org)
  • Saline
  • In this study, we induce corneal edema in ex-vivo porcine eyes and compare the effects of 5% hypertonic saline drops to modified hypertonic and hyperosmolar agents as potential therapeutics in reducing corneal edema in ex-vivo porcine eyes. (arvojournals.org)
  • This corneal shrinkage with the combined hypertonic and hyperosmotic (50% glycerin) agent is more robust than using glycerin or the standard 5 % saline alone. (arvojournals.org)
  • Corneal edema may be improved significantly by combining the standard hypertonic saline therapy with a hyperosmotic agent like glycerol. (arvojournals.org)
  • photophobia
  • The commonly described triad of epiphora (excessive tearing), blepharospasm and photophobia may be missed until the corneal edema becomes apparent. (wikipedia.org)
  • Decreased corneal sensitivity, vision loss, and photophobia have also been observed in patients who have worn contact lenses for an extended period of time. (wikipedia.org)
  • transplant
  • Deep ulcers and descemetoceles may require corneal suturing, conjunctival grafts or conjunctival flaps, soft contact lenses, or corneal transplant. (wikipedia.org)
  • It is used as an aid in ophthalmic surgery acting as aqueous and vitreous humor, e.g. in cataract extraction (intra- and extracapsular), intraocular lens implantation, corneal transplant, glaucoma filtration, and retina attachment surgery and in the treatment of dry eyes. (wikipedia.org)
  • glaucoma
  • The typical infant who has congenital glaucoma usually is initially referred to an ophthalmologist because of apparent corneal edema. (wikipedia.org)
  • Measurement of corneal diameter if greater than 11mm before the age of one year or corneal diameter greater than 13mm at any age is a diagnostic criteria for buphthalmos Untreated glaucoma leads to total blindness. (wikipedia.org)
  • occur
  • As clinical manifestations widely vary with the different entities, corneal dystrophies should be suspected when corneal transparency is lost or corneal opacities occur spontaneously, particularly in both corneas, and especially in the presence of a positive family history or in the offspring of consanguineous parents. (wikipedia.org)
  • tissue
  • When less water is available for processing, fluid accumulates and corneal tissue grows. (reference.com)
  • Diagnosis can be established on clinical grounds and this may be enhanced with studies on surgically excised corneal tissue and in some cases with molecular genetic analyses. (wikipedia.org)
  • drops
  • The orbscan test showed that I had corneal swelling (edema) and they gave me drops but were at a loss to explain how or why this would happen suddenly at 3 months. (usaeyes.org)
  • Common side effects of trifluridine eye drops include transient burning, stinging, local irritation, and edema of the eyelids. (wikipedia.org)
  • ulcers
  • Corneal ulcers are one of the most common eye diseases in dogs. (wikipedia.org)
  • Treatment of corneal ulcers includes topical antibiotic therapy to prevent infection, and pain medications, including topical atropine to stop spasms of the ciliary muscle. (wikipedia.org)
  • diagnosis
  • H18.20 is a billable ICD code used to specify a diagnosis of unspecified corneal edema. (icd.codes)
  • Laboratory tests are indicated in complicated cases when the clinical diagnosis is uncertain and in all cases of suspected neonatal herpes infection: Corneal smears or impression cytology specimens can be analyzed by culture, antigen detection, or fluorescent antibody testing. (wikipedia.org)
  • lesions
  • Primary infection typically presents as swelling of the conjunctiva and eyelids (blepharoconjunctivitis), accompanied by small white itchy lesions on the corneal surface. (wikipedia.org)
