    Abstract : Dry mouth and dry eyes are multifactorial morbidities that can lead to a severely reduced quality of life. Approximately 20% of the population suffers from ocular or oral dryness. READ MORE

  3. 3. On the Phase Behaviour of Soft Matter: Understanding Complex Interactions via Quantitative Imaging

    Author : Maxime Bergman; Fysikalisk kemi; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Microgels; Lysozyme; eye lens proteins; confocal microscopy; interaction potential; phase behaviour; simulations;

    Abstract : The effect of microscopic colloid interactions on the resultant macroscopic phase behaviour is a frequently studied topic in soft matter resarch, and lies at the heart of this thesis. Key structural and dynamic properties of colloidal model systems across liquid-solid transitions are tracked using optical imaging techniques. READ MORE

  4. 4. Prevention of complications in pediatric cataract surgery

    Author : Maria Kugelberg; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : This thesis was performed to find ways to lessen the complications to pediatric cataract surgery, which is an increasingly safe procedure, also in infants. However, there are some complications to the surgery, which threatens the visual development. The most common complication is aftercataract. READ MORE

  5. 5. Indoor environment and air quality in hospital units : Symptoms and signs

    Author : Klas Nordström; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Medical sciences; MEDICIN OCH VÅRD; MEDICINE; MEDICIN; arbets- och miljömedicin; Occupational and Environmental Medicine;

    Abstract : Indoor environment may influence the occurrence of symptoms such as eye, skin and upper airway irritation, headache and fatigue. The aim of the dissertation was to study relations between subjective indoor air quality, such symptoms, clinical signs from the nose and the eyes and the physical indoor environment, in particular the effect of dampness, type of building, and air humidification.
