pupillary entrance using Purkinje reflexes of the surgical microscope light.The study enrolled 52 eyes of 35 patients (23 women) with corneal astigmatism ranging from 0.90 to 6.19 diopters (D). The toric power was between 1.00 D and 8.00 D. One-third of eyes had an additional ocular comorbidity (including amblyopia) that could influence the clinical outcomes; 5.2% had an irregular astigmatism up to 15 degrees. Twelve eyes had high myopia (axial length [AL] >26 mm) and 5 eyes, high hyperopia (AL <21 mm (...)

504. Simple method of determining the axial length of the eye. (PubMed)

Simple method of determining the axial length of the eye. By photographing the corneal reflex in two positions of gaze and measuring the radius of curvature of the cornea it is possible to calculate the radius of rotation of the eye. The measurements obtained in this way showed a high correlation with refraction in a series of 80 eyes. The axial length obtained by this method was about 3 mm greater than that obtained by ultrasonographic or x-ray methods, and the reasons for the discrepancy

Eye Signs of Neurological Disorders The author discusses common neurologic abnormalities as they involve the visual pathway and the ocular motor system. Mention is also made of the corneal reflex, eyelid closure and the pupillary response. Emphasis is placed on routine examination techniques that would assist the family physician in his office. The importance of early diagnosis is stressed and criteria for referral reviewed.

Corneal examination Indistinct or blurred edges of the corneal light reflex (reflection of light from the cornea when illuminated) suggest the corneal surface is not intact or is roughened, as occurs with a corneal abrasion or keratitis.

Anatomy of the lacrimal system. Etiology Overall, the most common causes of tearing are URI Allergic rhinitis Tearing can be caused by increased tear production or decreased nasolacrimal drainage. In many patients, the cause of tearing can be multifactorial. Increased tear production The most common causes are URI Dry eyes (reflex tearing (...) produced in response to dryness of the ocular surface) Any disorder causing conjunctival or corneal irritation can increase tear production (see ). However, most patients with corneal disorders that cause excess tearing (eg, corneal abrasion, corneal ulcer, corneal foreign body, keratitis) or with primary angle-closure glaucoma or anterior uveitis present with eye symptoms other than tearing (eg, eye pain, redness).
