• scars
  • Although corneal transplantation with cataract extraction and intraocular lens implantation is the preferred method for treating corneal scars with a cataract, the scarcity of donor material and the risk of graft failure, particularly in high-risk keratoplasty, create the need for other methods for improving vision. (beds.ac.uk)
  • The purpose of this study is to determine whether OCT-guided settings for the lasers used for removal of corneal scars and other partial-thickness corneal defects result in improved vision in patients receiving these procedures. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • cataracts
  • I found that when I examined patients with corneal opacities and cataracts with the slit beam I could see details inside the eye better, such as the anterior capsule, the nucleus, and sometimes other minute details," said Dr. Mahmoud, lecturer and consultant of ophthalmology, Assiut University Hospital, Egypt. (modernmedicine.com)
  • 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)
  • anterior
  • The Department of Ophthalmology at the University Hospital Dusseldorf specializes in the treatment of diseases of the anterior eye segment, particularly, in corneal diseases. (bookinghealth.com)
  • Preoperative measurements from the OCT are used to assist the calculation in deciding the laser depth settings for removal of anterior corneal opacities and defects in the phototherapeutic PTK procedure. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • conjunctivitis
  • Ciliary flush is usually present in eyes with corneal inflammation, iridocyclitis or acute glaucoma, though not simple conjunctivitis. (wikipedia.org)
  • Inappetence Corneal opacity - conjunctivitis Nervous signs - fits and convulsions Dog sitting position Fever Increased returns Increased weaning to mating intervals Stillbirths Mummified piglets High mortality in piglets Swollen testicles Loss of libido Blue eye disease is caused by the porcine rubulavirus, which first emerged in 1980 throughout parts of Mexico, including La Piedad, Michoacan, Jalisco, and Guanajuato. (wikipedia.org)
  • disorder
  • Symptoms include muscle atrophy, neurological complications that are less severe and progress at a slower rate than in other forms of the disorder, corneal clouding in some patients, and dystonia (sustained muscle contractions that cause twisting and repetitive movements or abnormal postures). (wikipedia.org)
  • ulcer
  • The major complication or the most important one is corneal ulcer occurring due to rubbing by concentrations, or trichiasis with superimposed bacterial infection. (wikipedia.org)
  • transparency
  • Lumican is involved in collagen fibril organization and circumferential growth, corneal transparency, and epithelial cell migration and tissue repair. (wikipedia.org)
  • Corneal transparency is possible due to the exact alignment of collagen fibers by lumican (and keratocan) in the intrafibrillar space. (wikipedia.org)
  • Disease
  • Anyone with Fuchs should be evaluated by an eye care provider and optimally by a corneal specialist who can review the condition and go over treatments and options and measure the disease course. (healthtap.com)
  • tissue
  • 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)
  • Morax split the corneal tissue into two vertical layers, introducing the coloring substance under the pedicle flap and placing a compressive dressing over the eye. (wikipedia.org)
  • transplant
  • These patients may be simultaneously placed on waiting lists for both cataract surgery and keratoplasty but may not be scheduled for the corneal transplant for years. (modernmedicine.com)
  • Topical
  • Topical cidofovir is the first antiviral agent which has effectively reduced the incidence of corneal opacities, but local toxicity rules out its clinical application. (wikipedia.org)
  • Topical cyclosporin A (CsA) appears to be effective in the treatment of persistent corneal opacities. (wikipedia.org)
  • Anti-inflammatory therapy can help shorten recovery times, but topical corticosteroids should be used with care if corneal ulcers are present. (wikipedia.org)
  • surgery
  • The surgery may be performed using a laser, called phototherapeutic keratectomy (PTK), if the scarring is close to the corneal surface. (restonhospital.com)
  • Prior to surgery the patients were informed of the prognosis and the advantages and disadvantages of the surgery over a corneal triple procedure (penetrating keratoplasty in combination with extracapsular cataract extraction and intraocular lens implantation). (beds.ac.uk)
  • In some cases your doctor can recommend a treatment that will reverse the opacity and lessen your chances of needing additional treatment, such as surgery. (knowyourdisease.com)
  • Currently, many surgeons rely on subjective slit-lamp impression of opacity depth to guide PTK and repeat slit-lamp examinations during surgery to determine if the opacity has been sufficiently reduced. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • iris
  • Corneal tattooing is also performed on patients who still have vision to reduce symptomatic glare associated with large iridectomies or traumatic iris loss. (wikipedia.org)
  • procedure
  • Galen of Pergamum, a Roman physician and philosopher, first described corneal tattooing in 150 AD, and the same procedure was later described by Aetius in 450 AD as an attempt to mask the leukomatous opacities of the eye. (wikipedia.org)
  • This procedure was probably only used on those patients with an unsightly corneal leukoma. (wikipedia.org)
  • clinical
  • A prospective clinical trial was conducted at the Rajendra Prasad Centre for Ophthalmic Sciences, All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi, in which patients with leucomatous corneal opacity with a significant cataract were enrolled for the study. (beds.ac.uk)
  • Vision
  • Extracapsular cataract extraction and intraocular lens implantation with pupillary sphincterotomy provides ambulatory and useful vision to patients of cataract with coexisting central leucomatous corneal opacity. (beds.ac.uk)
  • Corneal opacities may be present but do not affect vision. (wikipedia.org)
