Are patients with aqueous-deficient dry eye at an increased risk for developing Sjogren’s syndrome? How is it best diagnosed? The British Journal of Ophthalmology
(MedPage Today) — Active multiple sclerosis is associated with rapid thinning of part of the retina, making eye measures helpful in evaluating new therapies, researchers suggested.
Retina thinning may reveal how rapidly multiple sclerosis is progressing, researchers from Johns Hopkins MS Center reported in the journal Neurology. The scientists explained that they referred to the thinning of “a layer of the retina in the eyes”…
To investigate anterior segment parameters in normal Chinese subjects and study factors influencing these parameters, such as age, gender, and laterality.
A prospective observational case series.
A total of 291 normal subjects (582 eyes) were included.
The anterior segment data were determined with a dual Scheimpflug analyzer.
Main Outcome Measures:
The corneal thinnest-point thickness (CTPT), corneal thinnest-point distribution (CTPD), central corneal thickness (CCT), corneal thickness (CT) in the central 10 mm diameter, pupil diameter (PD), pupil center distribution (PCD), anterior chamber depth (ACD), and anterior chamber (Read more...)
