Infantile esotropia is corrected in most cases by bilateral recession of the medial rectus
muscles (BR) or by unilateral recession of the medial rectus muscle and resection of the
lateral rectus muscle (RR). We compared the outcome of these techniques in a randomized
The purpose of this study is to assess whether glycemic control (assessed with HbA1c
measurement) in individuals with type 1 or type 2 diabetes can be improved with a
point-of-care measurement of HbA1c in the ophthalmologist's office combined with a
personalized risk assessment for diabetic retinopathy and other complications of diabetes.
The objectives of this study are twofold •To evaluate the safety and efficacy of 0.1%
AGN-195263 administered twice daily compared to its vehicle in patients with evaporative dry
eye (EDE) •To evaluate the systemic pharmacokinetics of 0.1% AGN-195263 administered twice
daily in patients with EDE
To undertake a prospective randomized clinical study for treating retinal detachment due to
myopic macular holes, utilizing pneumatic retinopexy versus pars plana vitrectomy with gas
tamponade.To determine the efficiency of pneumatic retinopexy with C3F8 in the treatment of
retinal detachment due to myopic macular hole.
The Ranibizumab in Pigment Epithelium Tears Secondary To Age-Related Macular Degeneration
(RIP) Study is a prospective, multicenter, uncontrolled, interventional phase 2 clinical
trial that investigates the effect of fixed monthly intravitreal injections of ranibizumab
(Lucentis, Novartis Pharma, Germany) on visual acuity and retinal morphology over a study
period of 12 months in 30 patients.
This is a data revision with a focus on 24 hour perfusion pressures of data from a previous
randomized, double masked, multicenter clinical trial.
The aim was to compare the effect of bimatoprost and the fixed combination of latanoprost
and timolol (LTFC) on 24-hour mean intraocular pressure (IOP) after patients are switched
from a nonfixed combination of latanoprost and timolol.
The main findings of the original trial had been published on Ophthalmology ... Read More
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety, tolerability and effectiveness of a
fully human antibody compared to placebo in the treatment of patients with active thyroid
"Funding Source - FDA OOPD"
This is an open-label, dose escalation, safety, tolerability and pharmacokinetic study,
where active study drug (QPI-1007) will be given to all patients who participate.
This study will determine whether QPI-1007 is safe when it is injected into the eye. The
study will also reveal if there are any side effects of the drug and how long it takes for
the body to clear the drug.
Objectives: Behçet's disease (BD) is a systemic vasculitis. Since vascular endothelial
dysfunction plays a prominent role in the pathogenesis of the disease, we considered
angiogenic cytokines as an interesting target for investigation in BD. The aim of this study
was to investigate the possible role of angiogenin, vascular endothelial growth factor
(VEGF) and basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF) in the pathogenesis of BD.
Design and Methods: Sixty five ... Read More

The overarching purpose of this project is to provide diabetes education to the diverse
patient population at the Lions Eye Clinic, a resident-run ophthalmology practice at
California Pacific Medical Center. Because of high clinic volume in a teaching environment,
our patients often experience long wait times. The goal of this program is to utilize this
wait time for diabetes education, a much-needed corollary to the eye care that patients
receive at our ... Read More
The purpose of the study is to evaluate the relative efficacy and safety of treatment of
neovascular AMD with Lucentis on a fixed schedule, Avastin on a fixed schedule, Lucentis on
a variable schedule, and Avastin on a variable schedule.
A five year follow-up visit is being conducted in 2014 to gather information on long term
The hypothesis is that pediatric patients with increased levels of anxiety on the day of
surgery, in particular at point of anesthetic induction, will demonstrate decreased
compliance with assessment in ophthalmology clinic postoperatively.
