Abstract

PURPOSE:

To report the changes in corneal topography in 2 cases of ocular hypotony induced by cyclodialysis cleft after blunt trauma, which were successfully treated by argon laser photocoagulation.

METHODS:

For both patients, a full ophthalmic clinical examination and corneal topography were performed before and after argon laser cleft closure.

RESULTS:

In the first case, the corneal topography showed 3.81-D astigmatism at 96 degrees, which was reduced to 1.1 D at 124 degrees 1 week after treatment and 0.66 D at 122 degrees at 3 weeks after treatment. In the second case, the corneal astigmatism was 3.91 D at 104 degrees, which decreased to 1.44 D at 104 degrees and 0.35 D at 118 degrees at 1 week and 4 months after treatment, respectively.

CONCLUSIONS:

In both cases, the with-the-rule astigmatism reduced significantly after successful closure of the cleft and an increase in intraocular pressure.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
