TIGR gene in primary open-angle glaucoma and steroid-induced glaucoma

Kee C, Ahn BH

  • Korean J Ophthalmol.
  • 1997 Dec;11(2):75-78.
  • doi: 10.3341/kjo.1997.11.2.75
To identify TIGR gene mutation in two Korean pedigrees of primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG), and in 25 steroid-induced glaucoma patients, TIGR gene assay was performed. Genomic DNA was extracted from...
A comparison of optic nerve head topography in primary open-angle glaucoma and normal-tension glaucoma in Korean

Yang JG, Park KH

  • Korean J Ophthalmol.
  • 1997 Dec;11(2):79-83.
  • doi: 10.3341/kjo.1997.11.2.79
We investigated whether there is any difference in optic nerve head topography between primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG) and normal-tension glaucoma (NTG) in Koreans. Twenty-three eyes of 23 POAG and 20...
Infectivity of basal epithelial cells in herpetic dendritic epithelial keratitis

Kim JH, Ko MK, Shin JC

  • 1997 Dec;11(2):89-93.
  • doi: 10.3341/kjo.1997.11.2.89
We compared the tear break-up time (BUT) and Schirmer test value after myopic excimer laser photorefractive keratectomy (PRK). Patients with normal preoperative Schirmer test value and BUT were included. Pre-...
Phacoemulsification and posterior chamber intraocular lens implantation in uveitis

Kang YH, Lee JH

  • Korean J Ophthalmol.
  • 1997 Dec;11(2):94-97.
