High impact information on Eye, Artificial

  • We semiquantitated radioiodine secretion in the tears of a thyroid-ablated patient with an artificial eye while the patient was on thyroxine treatment [1].
  • Comparison of artificial eye amplitudes with acrylic and hydroxyapatite spherical enucleation implants [2].
  • METHODS: Two identical artificial eye chambers were constructed with circumferential indentations placed at the sphere's equator (mimicking an encircling band indentation), and filled with varying amounts of Silicone Oil 1000 centistrokes (Adato, Bausch and Lomb, UK) and balanced salt solution [3].
  • As a global reference, the point-spread function (PSF) of the artificial eye was recorded directly on a CCD camera and compared with simulated PSF's computed from the experimental aberration data [4].
  • The method has been applied to correct the third-order spherical aberration generated by an artificial eye as well as the coma produced by a progressive addition ophthalmic lens [5].
