1. Retinal ganglion cell examination with Optical Coherence Tomography reflects physiological and pathological changes in the eye and the brain
Sammanfattning : The retinal ganglion cell is situated in the inner retina and its axons, composing the retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL), leave the eye to form the optic nerve. These cells develop embryologically from the forebrain and later during development re-establish connections with different parts of the brain serving different purposes. LÄS MER

Sammanfattning : Angiogenesis is the emergence of new blood and lymph vessels from existing ones. In the pathologic form it contributes to the onset and progression of numerous different human disorders such as cancer, inflammation, atherosclerosis and blinding eye diseases. LÄS MER
4. Surgical outcomes of phototherapeutic keratectomy on Epithelial basement membrane dystrophy, and the characterisation of Bowman´s Layer
Sammanfattning : Background. Epithelial basement membrane dystrophy (EBMD) is a common disease of the anterior cornea that can lead to problems with vision and/or painful recurrent erosions of the corneal epithelium. Several treatment options have been used, but recurrence of EBMD after treatment is a problem. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Background. The cornea has unique anatomic, cellular, molecular, and functional features that lead to important mechanistic differences in the process of repair in comparison with what occurs in skin and other organs. The first observable stromal response in corneal wound healing is keratocyte apoptosis. LÄS MER
