Topography of the Corneal Epithelium and the Bowman layer in Low to Moderately Myopic Eyes. Salah-Mabed I, Saad a., Gatinel D. Journal of Cataract and Refractive Surgery, 2016; 42:1190 - 1197

This paper explores the topography of the corneal epithelium and Bowman layer, which is the most superficial layer of the corneal stroma, in normal myopic eyes. Link toward the JCRS paper (valid until October 2016) The Bowman layer is incorporating a layer of the cornea that separates the corneal epithelium from the anterior stroma. Routine [...]

Gatinel D. The mystery of collagen cross linking when it comes to in-vivo biomechanical measurements. J Refract Surg. 2014; 30 (11) - 727

This letter to the editor of the Journal of Refractive Surgery is an article recently published on the results of the Cross Linking in patients of Keratoconus (1). As in all the previous studies, both instruments intended to measure corneal Biomechanics (Ocular Response Analyzer: ORA) and the CorVis did not [...]

Transplant endothelial pure (DMEK) on old intracorneens foreign bodies. Flight VIII, n ° 6. Images in Ophtalmologies, December 2014

This article reports a case of endothelial pure cornea transplant (DMEK), performed in a patient victim of the explosion of a homemade bomb 40 years previously. The registry has to be performed after removal of intraocular foreign bodies, and gave a good functional result. This case illustrates the interest of a minimally invasive procedure to restore [...]

At Saad, D Gatinel. Experience and results with pure endothelial transplants. Ophthalmological realities, November 2013.

This article is devoted to the DMEK technique, which allows to restore the corneal transparency by replacing the pathological endothelium (also, surgical trauma cornea) by a single layer of endothelial cells. At Saad, D Gatinel. Experience and results with pure endothelial transplants (DMEK)

Power of the cornea paraxial optics

Calculation of optical power (vergence) of the optical power cornea paraxial or vergence of the cornea depends on the curvature of its faces front and rear, as well as its thickness. What is being? A determine the vergence (optical power) of the entire cornea (a combination of the refraction of the front and back sides). We [...]

LASIK and corneal thickness

Thickness of the cornea and the thickness of the cornea LASIK ability is an important parameter in LASIK surgery, particularly for short-sighted. Some patients, surgical candidates, are left out of the LASIK technique because "their cornea is too thin. Others may benefit from LASIK, even for a high myopia, because the cornea [...]

Cornea also - dystrophy of Fuchs

Fuchs and also cornea dystrophy Fuchs dystrophy is a condition of the cornea which translates into the existence of chronic and symptomatic of the cornea edema: low vision is caused by the gradual reduction of corneal transparency. The Fuchs dystrophy comes with collagen tissue growths called "drops" [...]
