Towards point-of-care detection of polymicrobial infections: Rapid colorimetric response using a portable spectrophotometer
Infectious diseases spread rapidly because current diagnostic methods are slow, expensive, and require technical expertise. Biosensors have recently been used as devices that can be deployed at the point-of-care for rapid ...
Release of Moxifloxacin from Contact Lenses Using an In Vitro Eye Model: Impact of Artificial Tear Fluid Composition and Mechanical Rubbing
(Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology, 2016-08-11)
Purpose: The aim of this study was to evaluate and compare the release of moxifloxacin from a variety of daily disposable (DD) contact lenses (CLs) under various conditions using a novel in vitro eye model. Methods: Four ...
Development of an In Vitro Ocular Platform to Test Contact Lenses
(Journal of Visualized Experiments, 2016-06-04)
Currently, in vitro evaluations of contact lenses (CLs) for drug delivery are typically performed in large volume vials,1-6 which fail to mimic physiological tear volumes.7 The traditional model also lacks the natural tear ...
Impression Cytology of the Lid Wiper Area
(Journal of Visualized Experiments, 2016-09-08)
Few reports on the cellular anatomy of the lid wiper (LW) area of the inner eyelid exist and only one report makes use of cytological methods. The optimization of a method of collecting, staining and imaging cells from the ...
Corneal Swelling with Cosmetic etafilcon A Lenses versus No Lens Wear:
(Wolters & Kluwer, 2016-06)
Purpose: To determine if the use of pigments or adding polyvinyl pyrrolidone during the fabrication of 1-DAY ACUVUE DEFINE (AD) brand contact lenses impacts open-eye corneal swelling compared with no lens wear (NLW). ...
