    Abstract : A balanced tear film is essential for a healthy ocular surface. Insufficient tear production may result in dry eye, a common disorder in the elderly population. Dry eye causes significant discomfort in the patients and may lead to visual impairment and ocular infections. READ MORE

  2. 2. Short- and Long-Term Follow-Up of Ophthalmological Findings in Preterm Infants and Children

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Eva Larsson; Uppsala universitet.; [2004]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Ophtalmology; prematurity; follow-up; retinopathy of prematurity; ROP; infants; children; incidence; screening; refraction; visual acuity; visual fields; Oftalmiatrik; MEDICINE Physiology and pharmacology Ophtalmology; MEDICIN Fysiologi och farmakologi Oftalmologi;

    Abstract : In a prospective population-based study in Stockholm County, 1998-2000, the incidence of retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) was investigated and was found to be 36% in prematurely-born infants with a birth weight of ≤ 1500 grams. Compared to a study performed ten years ago, the overall incidence was unchanged, but was reduced in “mature” infants and increased in immature ones. READ MORE

  3. 3. Superoxide dismutase 1 and cataract

    University dissertation from Umeå : Institutionen för klinisk vetenskap

    Author : Eva Olofsson; Umeå universitet.; [2009]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; cataract; diabetes mellitus; nitric oxide; superoxide; superoxide dismutase; SOD1 null mice; MEDICINE Physiology and pharmacology Ophtalmology Ophtalmiatrics; MEDICIN Fysiologi och farmakologi Oftalmologi Oftalmiatrik; oftalmiatrik; Ophtalmology;

    Abstract : Light and oxygen generate harmful reactive oxygen species (ROS) in the lens, causing biochemical changes that gradually disarrange the lens fibres resulting in light scattering and loss of transparency. In the healthy eye, this chronic exposure to oxidative stress may lead to age-related cataract. READ MORE

  4. 4. Intraocular pressure clinical aspects and new measurement methods

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Gauti Jóhannesson; Umeå universitet.; [2011]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Intraocular pressure; glaucoma; tonometry; ISO; LASEK; CCT; curvature; MEDICINE Physiology and pharmacology Ophtalmology Ophtalmiatrics; MEDICIN Fysiologi och farmakologi Oftalmologi Oftalmiatrik; oftalmiatrik; Ophtalmology;

    Abstract : Intraocular pressure (IOP) measurement is a routine procedure and a fundament in glaucoma care. Elevated IOP is the main risk factor for glaucoma, and to date, reduction of IOP is the only possible treatment. In a retrospective clinical material, the prevalence of open angle glaucoma was estimated on the west coast of Iceland. READ MORE

  5. 5. Bothnia dystrophy, a clinical, genetical and electrophysiological study

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå university
