The investigators performed this study to investigate pain prevention of preoperative
topical nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) in photorefractive keratectomy(PRK)
using time serial pain scoring.
The purpose of this study is to compare the efficacy of 5 % vs. 1.25 % povidone-iodine (PI)
as preoperative antiseptic prior to strabismus surgery in children as a prophylaxis of
endophthalmitis. Given the low rate of endophthalmitis the conjunctival bacterial flora rate
is used as surrogate marker to determine the effectiveness of topical PI in reducing or
eliminating bacteria from the ocular surface at the time of the surgery. Secondary objective
is a ... Read More
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the correlation between morphologic changes in the
outer retina and visual function after successful repair of rhegmatogenous retinal
detachment with macula off.
The primary objective is to study if an inhibition of nitric oxide and/or prostaglandins
affect the diameter changes of retinal vessels observed during hypoxia. Diameter changes are
studied using the Dynamic Vessel Analyzer.
The purpose of this study is to analyze the retinal arteries, to investigate the incidence,
number, types, distribution and localization of cilioretinal arteries in the Hungarian
The purpose of the study is to find out if treatment with an intravitreal injection of
triamcinolone or an intravitreal injection of ranibizumab can prevent loss of vision caused
by panretinal photocoagulation treatment. At the present time, it is not known whether
intravitreal steroid or anti-vascular endothelial growth factor (anti-VEGF) injections are
beneficial in preventing vision loss after panretinal photocoagulation (PRP) treatment. It
is possible ... Read More
Topical fluoroquinolones (FQs) have achieved widespread use in ophthalmology for both the
treatment and prophylaxis of ocular infections. The present study is set to determine the
bacteria present on the ocular surface in patients at the time of cataract surgery and to
assess the rate of resistance of ocular isolates to commonly used topical antibiotics.
