The concept and research progress of corneal crystallin

Authors:Li Fang,  Li Xuan DOI: 10.3760/cma.j.issn.2095-0160.2016.12.022 Published 2016-12-10 Cite as Chin J Exp Ophthalmol, 2016,34(12): 1149-1152. Abstract Crystallin plays an important role in the maintenance of lens transparency, which can be divided into enzymatic cyrstallin and non-enzymatic crystallin.Recent researches showed that identical proteins, mainly the enzymatic crystallin, also existed in the cornea, which was important to maintain corneal transparency […]

Research progress of autophagy in age-related macular degeneration and retinal detachment

Authors:Xie Jia,  Zhu Ruilin,  Yang Liu DOI: 10.3760/cma.j.issn.2095-0160.2016.12.021 Published 2016-12-10 Cite as Chin J Exp Ophthalmol, 2016,34(12): 1145-1148. Abstract As a critical self-protection mechanism to maintain the cellular homeostasis and functions, autophagy plays a significant role in growth, adaptation, tumor suppression, aging, innate and acquired immunity.Recent studies have indicated that autophagy is associated with the occurrence and development of many […]

Mechanisms of photoreceptor cell death and potential treatment strategies in retinal detachment

Authors:Li Tong,  Sun Xiaodong DOI: 10.3760/cma.j.issn.2095-0160.2016.12.020 Published 2016-12-10 Cite as Chin J Exp Ophthalmol, 2016,34(12): 1140-1144. Abstract Retinal detachment(RD)is one of the most common sight-threatening retinal diseases.Visual acuity is not always restored after successful reattachment of the retina.Photoreceptor cell death has been thought to be the major cause of vision loss after RD through various pathways and their interactions, […]

The role of vascular endothelial growth factor and bevacizumab on the wound healing in trabeculectomy patients

Authors:Jiang Xiaodan,  Li Xuemin,  Wang Wei DOI: 10.3760/cma.j.issn.2095-0160.2016.12.019 Published 2016-12-10 Cite as Chin J Exp Ophthalmol, 2016,34(12): 1136-1139. Abstract Proper wound healing and scaring are the key factor to the success of trabeculectomy in glaucoma patients.The inadequate wound healing will lead to bleb leakage and ocular hypotension after surgery; however, excessive wound healing and scaring will cause the failure of […]

Microgliar regulates the physical development of vascular growth and angiogenesis in the retina

Authors:Yin Jie,  Wang Yusheng DOI: 10.3760/cma.j.issn.2095-0160.2016.12.018 Published 2016-12-10 Cite as Chin J Exp Ophthalmol, 2016,34(12): 1132-1135. Abstract Being regarded as one kind of specialized tissue macrophages in central nervous system, microglia plays a key role in maintenance of retinal integrity and function.However, recent investigations have revealed that microglia has migrated in the brain before the vascular network formation.Besides their […]

An analysis of cognitions to preferred practice pattern from Chinese ophthalmologists by questionnaire

Authors:Meng Bo,  Li Shiming,  Kang Mengtian,  Sun Yunyun,  Wang Ningli,  Zhan Siyan DOI: 10.3760/cma.j.issn.2095-0160.2016.12.016 Published 2016-12-10 Cite as Chin J Exp Ophthalmol, 2016,34(12): 1126-1130. Abstract Background Preferred practice pattern (PPP) is an evidence-based documents which can be used for reference to standardize medical practice by ophthalmologists.So far it has been promoted for more than 10 years in China.However, there is no report about […]

The difference of lens thickness measured by immersion A-scan ultrasound versus Lenstar optical biometry in various types of cataract eyes and its clinical significance

Authors:Xue Wenchen,  Song Hui,  Tang Xin DOI: 10.3760/cma.j.issn.2095-0160.2016.12.015 Published 2016-12-10 Cite as Chin J Exp Ophthalmol, 2016,34(12): 1121-1125. Abstract Background Cataract is the main cause of global blindness, and surgery is the main method for the treatment of cataract, so precise preoperative parameters have an important significance for improving postoperative visual quality. Objective This study was to analyze the difference […]

Repeatability of Ophtha TOP in measuring corneal parameters and its agreement with Pentacam

Authors:Yu Shasha,  Song Hui,  Tang Xin DOI: 10.3760/cma.j.issn.2095-0160.2016.12.014 Published 2016-12-10 Cite as Chin J Exp Ophthalmol, 2016,34(12): 1116-1120. Abstract Background Accurate measurement of corneal refractive parameters plays an important role in the diagnosis of eye diseases, design of refractive surgery and calculation of intraocular lens (IOL) power.Ophtha TOP is a new IOL calculator, so it is necessary to evaluate the […]

Application of iris fluorescein angiography combined with fundus fluorescein angiography in diabetic retinopathy with neovascular glaucoma

Authors:Li Shiqing,  Wang Zhili,  Li Ping,  Dong Yingli DOI: 10.3760/cma.j.issn.2095-0160.2016.12.013 Published 2016-12-10 Cite as Chin J Exp Ophthalmol, 2016,34(12): 1112-1115.
