  • the cornea and conjunctiva are stained with fluorescein and tear film breakup time is determined. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • The ocular surface cell collection apparatus (OSCCA) allows safe and efficacious collection of human corneal epithelial cells2 and may provide the ability to examine cytological changes to the human cornea during lens wear. (uwaterloo.ca)
  • The transparency of the cornea is based on the lack of blood vessels and cells, the lack of pigment, the control of corneal water content, and the smooth optical surface afforded by the precorneal tear film. (vin.com)
  • Corneal nerves are responsible for maintaining the anatomical and functional integrity of the cornea, conveying tactile, temperature and pain sensations, playing a role in the blink reflex, in wound healing and in the production and secretion of tears. (wikipedia.org)
  • Stage III: characterized by ulcers of the cornea accompanied by stromal oedema and/or melting that may result in corneal perforation. (wikipedia.org)
  • Corneal defects and neovascularization were induced in vivo by infliction of an alkali burn to the cornea with 1 N sodium hydroxide solution in RAP1 knock-out (RKO) and wild-type (RWT) mice. (arvojournals.org)
  • A corneal ulcer, or ulcerative keratitis, is an inflammatory condition of the cornea involving loss of its outer layer. (wikipedia.org)
  • In veterinary medicine, the term corneal ulcer is a generic name for any condition involving the loss of the outer layer of the cornea, and as such is used to describe conditions with both inflammatory and traumatic causes. (wikipedia.org)
  • superficial
  • Clinical signs start with a superficial vascularization of the perilimbal corneal, and as the disease progresses, the lesions appear as an edematous area, an irregular and vascularized mass with pink to white infiltrates that form gritty yellow-white corneal plaques extending axially from the limbus. (springer.com)
  • wound
  • ARVO E-Abstract 262) In a model of corneal wound healing, the CMHA film was found capable of delivering recombinant human growth hormone in a controlled, sustained manner both in vitro and in vivo over a course of days to months. (oraclinical.com)
  • Descemet's
  • With descemetoceles, Descemet's membrane will bulge forward and after staining will appear as a dark circle with a green boundary, because it does not absorb the stain. (wikipedia.org)
  • inflammatory
  • Molecular investigation revealed that deletion of RAP1 reduced upregulation of inflammatory cytokine (IL1A), finely regulated the expression of angiogenic factor (VEGF), and antiangiogenic factor (PEDF), following injury for better corneal recovery. (arvojournals.org)
  • surgical
  • The present invention also relates to a method for improving post surgery visual acuity outcome in a patient, comprising the steps of: identifying a patient in need of an ophthalmic surgical procedure, administering to the patient an effective amount of azithromycin prior to the ophthalmic surgical procedure, and performing the ophthalmic surgical procedures on the patient. (patentsencyclopedia.com)
  • 2. The method according to claim 1, wherein said patient in need of the ophthalmic surgical procedure has dry eye disease or is at the risk of developing dry eye disease. (patentsencyclopedia.com)
  • 4. The method according to claim 1, wherein said ophthalmic surgical procedure is cataract surgery. (patentsencyclopedia.com)
  • nerve
  • Most corneal nerve fibres are sensory in origin and are derived from the ophthalmic branch of the trigeminal nerve. (wikipedia.org)
  • Other, albeit less frequent, potential causes of the disease are: intracranial space-occupying lesions such as neuroma, meningioma and aneurysms, which may compress the trigeminal nerve and reduce corneal sensitivity. (wikipedia.org)
  • treatment
  • The paper also discusses different colloidal drug delivery systems and current challenges in the development of topical ophthalmic drug delivery systems for treatment of KCS. (hindawi.com)
  • early
  • Since Hoechst stains live and early apoptotic cells and PI stains cells that are late stage apoptotic, necrotic and dead cells, we can conclude that sodium fluorescein stains live and early apoptotic cells. (uwaterloo.ca)
  • Corneal lacerations are best to refer to the ophthalmic specialist as early as possible for prompt repair. (vin.com)
  • appropriate
  • Chapter 4 looked at other cytological stains and concluded that the LIVE⁄DEAD® Viability⁄Cytotoxicity Kit (calcein AM/ethidium homodimer-1) was the most appropriate stain to use with the OSCCA collected cells due to the lack of overlap between stains. (uwaterloo.ca)
