Muller muscle-conjunctival resection (MCR) is a surgical technique to correct mild and moderate ptosis. In this study, tear function tests and ocular surface are evaluated in patients who underwent unilateral surgery. Sixteen patients with normal preoperative tear function who underwent unilateral MCR were evaluated prospectively. The fellow eyes of the patients were taken as the control group. A dry eye assessment questionnaire, Schirmer testing, tear film break-up time, fluorescein stain, Rose-Bengal stain, and conjunctival impression cytology were used to assess the tear film functions and ocular surface changes in the operated a . . .nd non-operated eyes. There was no statistically significant difference in the tear function tests and goblet cell densities between the operated and non-operated eyes. The results indicate that an MCR procedure has no apparent effect on tear function tests and goblet cell density in patients with normal preoperative tear function Daha fazlası Daha az

Purpose: To investigate the effects of Ankaferd Blood Stopper (R) (ABS) on the ocular surface. Methods: Twenty adult male Wistar albino rats, weighing 390-530 g, were used in this prospective, controlled trial. One drop of ABS and one drop of balanced salt solution (BSS) were instilled into the lower conjunctival sac of the right and left eyes, respectively. After the rats were anesthetized, the ocular surface was evaluated based on the Draize criteria, and fluorescein tests were performed at 1, 2, 4, 18, 24, and 48 h. Subsequently, the rats were killed and all eyes were enucleated for histopathological examination. Results: The out . . .come of the Draize and fluorescein tests revealed that ABS caused more irritation of the ocular surface than BSS (P < 0.001). The highest mean ABS score was 4.9 for the Draize test and 0.4 for the fluorescein test, and ABS was considered to be a slight irritant. Histopathological examinations of the cornea and the conjunctiva revealed no significant difference between the eyes instilled with BSS and those instilled with ABS. Conclusions: ABS is a hemostatic drug that exerts a slight toxic effect on the ocular surface. Given its ease of use and antibacterial activity, as well as its efficiency in stopping bleeding, the use of ABS during ocular surgery should be further investigated in experimental and clinical studies Daha fazlası Daha az
