Purpose: To retrospectively examine the surgical and 3-month follow up outcomes such as complications, centration of IOL, visual acuity, and intraocular pressure.
Purpose: To prospectively collect relevant information from every corneal transplant patient in Ottawa into an online registry. Implications on implementing a national database for monitoring evolving methods of transplantation, indications and outcomes.
Purpose: To prospectively assess the recurrence of symptoms of ABMD after treatment with PTK through patient questionnaire data correlated with review of charts.
Purpose: Randomized control trial to determine the efficacy of crosslinking compared to topical antimicrobial therapy in the initial treatment of infectious keratitis.
Purpose: To design a trephine capable of making two cuts of donor corneal tissue simultaneously in order to optimize centration: measured in comparison to two subsequent cuts (standard of care).
Purpose: To report on the challenges of this new surgical technique, and lessons learned at preoperative, intraoperative and postoperative stages.
Purpose: To retrospectively compare the outcomes (graft stability, recurrence of pterygium) between autologous blood and fibrin glue fixation of conjunctival autografts in pterygium excision surgery.
Purpose: To retrospectively assess if the surgical and follow up outcomes of splitting a donor cornea for two lamellar transplants is comparable to using two donor corneas.
Purpose: To retrospectively compare the surgical recovery time, visual acuity, intraocular pressure, and interface complications between 3 techniques in endothelial keratoplasty.
Purpose: To prospectively determine if the placement of temporary sutures to reduce astigmatism in keratoconus corneas can be stabilized long term by crosslinking.
