Article
Full-text available
Backgroud Cenegermin (Oxervate, Dompè Farmaceutici, Milan, IT), a recombinant human NGF, is a potentially healing new drug for neurotrophic keratopathy (NK), a rare but challenging disease affecting the cornea. To date, studies that evaluate its mid-term effect on corneal nerves and sensitivity are lacking. Objective To evaluate the recovery and m...
Article
Purpose To describe the microscopic epithelial changes and the clinical outcomes of a patient treated with amniotic membrane eye drops (AMED) because of a persistent epithelial defect (PED) and a partial limbal stem cell deficiency (LSCD) after simple limbal epithelial transplantation (SLET) and deep anterior lamellar keratoplasty (DALK). Observat...
Article
Full-text available
Purpose To evaluate the feasibility of a new method of conjunctival transplantation to achieve recovery of the normal conjunctival epithelium over the bare sclera after pterygium excision and prevent its recurrence. Methods After excision of the primary pterygium, we performed simple conjunctival epithelial transplantation (SCET) in which we glued...
Article
Full-text available
Purpose To summarize the actions taken to give continuity to the surgical treatment of glaucoma patients and to present the volume and characteristics of glaucoma surgery in the first year of pandemic at the Tertiary Glaucoma Center of the University Hospital of Verona (Veneto, Italy). Methods Demographical and surgical features of patients who un...
Article
Full-text available
Purpose The relation between OSAS and eye diseases is well known in adults, while very few and contradictory data can be found regarding paediatric ages. The aim of this study is to explore the early corneal, macular and optic nerve changes in paediatric patients with OSAS. Methods Prospective study that enrolled children aged ≥ 4 years referred t...
Article
Purpose: To compare the objective and subjective outcomes between the extended depth of focus (EDOF) Mini Well intraocular lens (IOL) and the aspheric monofocal Mini-4-Ready IOL (both SIFI S.p.A.) in patients with high myopia. Methods: In this prospective comparative study, 40 patients with high myopia (axial length ≥ 26 mm) were enrolled: 20 pa...
Article
Purpose To evaluate factors affecting the outcomes of pre-loaded DMEK (pl-DMEK) with endothelium-inwards. Design Retrospective clinical case series and a comparative tissue preparation study Participants Fifty-five donor tissues for ex vivo study and 147 eyes of 147 patients indicated with Fuchs endothelial dystrophy or pseudophakic bullous kerat...
Article
Full-text available
The aim of this prospective explorative study was to evaluate the safety and the effectiveness of topical polyvinylpyrrolidone-iodine (PVP-I) administered during the time-to-results period for pathogen identification and susceptibility testing in patients with infectious keratitis (IK). A corneal swab (CS) for antimicrobial evaluation was performed...
Article
Full-text available
Purpose: To evaluate the efficiency of femtosecond laser (FSL) incision of rehydrated human donor corneas after air-drying and its effects on corneal structure. Methods: We compared the rehydrated and fresh-preserved corneas by microscopy following Victus-Tecnolas FSL treatment for straight-edge anterior lamellar keratoplasty (ALK). The corneas wer...

Article
Full-text available
Purpose To review recent progress, challenges, and future perspectives of stromal keratophakia for the treatment of advanced keratoconus. Methods We systematically reviewed the literature in the PubMed database, last update June 30, 2020. No language restriction was applied. The authors checked the reference lists of the retrieved articles to iden...
Article
Full-text available
Purpose: To determine whether type 1 big-bubble (BB) formation is influenced by the sequence of incisions created with the Victus femtosecond laser (FSL) enabled with software version 3.4 (SV 3.4) during deep anterior lamellar keratoplasty (DALK). Materials and methods: Consecutive FSL-assisted DALK BB procedures were performed on 20 human donor...
Article
Full-text available
Examination of the corneal surface by in vivo confocal microscopy (IVCM) allows for objective identification of corneal and conjunctival cell phenotypes to evaluate different epithelialization patterns. Detection of a corneal-conjunctival epithelial transition could be considered as a sign of restored epithelial function following simple limbal epi...
Article
Full-text available
Objective To evaluate objective and subjective outcomes after bilateral implantation of two different multifocal intraocular lenses, which correct pseudophakic presbyopia in an adequate and homogeneous population court. Methods and analysis Fifty patients were evaluated at 3 months after bilateral implantation, at the Eye Clinic of University of V...
Article
Full-text available
Purpose To investigate the feasibility of intrastromal lenticule insertion to restore corneal shape in a model of ectatic human cornea. Methods For this experimental ex vivo study on 34 human corneas unsuitable for transplantation, 17 corneas were thinned by decentralized posterior excimer laser ablation to 200 μm thickness and 6.5 mm diameter and...
Article
A 44-year-old man presented with Acanthamoeba and Fusarium coinfection keratitis. Fifteen years before, he had hyperopic laser in situ keratomileusis, and the coinfection was under the flap. The keratitis was nonresponsive to topical and systemic therapy; therefore, accelerated corneal crosslinking (CXL) with photoactivated riboflavin (photoactivat...
Article
Full-text available
Purpose: To compare the visual acuity, refractive outcomes, and quality of vision in patients with bilateral implantation of 4 intraocular lenses (IOLs). Settings: Department of Neurosciences, Biomedicine and Movement Sciences, Eye Clinic, University of Verona, Verona, and Carones Ophthalmology Center, Milano, Italy. Design: Prospective case s...
Article
Purpose: To determine the prevalence of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) in patients with keratoconus (KCN) and to evaluate the association between the severity of KCN and OSA. Methods: OSA was diagnosed with an overnight home sleep apnea test. As estimated by home monitoring, an apnea-hypopnea index threshold of ≥5 sleep-related obstructive breath...
Article
Purpose: To evaluate and compare the clinical outcomes with an aspheric monofocal intraocular lens (IOL) and an extended range of vision (ERV) IOL based on achromatic diffractive technology. Methods: This was a prospective comparative study including 80 eyes undergoing cataract surgery with implantation of the monofocal Tecnis ZCB00 IOL (Abbott...
