Benetz et al compared endothelial morphometric measures in failed and intact grafts before and after penetrating keratoplasty, including endothelial cell density, coefficient of variation, and percentage of hexagonality.
Patel and McLaren determine stromal cell density and describe qualitative changes in corneal cells and structure in Fuchs dystrophy before and after Descemet stripping endothelial keratoplasty.
To determine whether sagging eye syndrome results from inferior shift of lateral rectus extraocular muscle pulleys, Chaudhuri and Demer used MRI to investigate anatomic correlates of strabismus in sagging eye syndrome.
Golan et al determined the incidence and amount of anterior chamber bleeding after laser peripheral iridotomy (LPI ) in patients with primary angle-closure glaucoma who continued their antiplatelet or anticoagulant treatment before undergoing laser peripheral iridotomy compared with when they discontinued treatment.
