Jared AMENT, USA: To assess the sustainability of the Type I Boston Keratoprosthesis in the developing world and report 18-month follow-up data on the International Boston Keratoprosthesis Study Group pilot project in Ethiopian.
Stefano BARABINO, Italy : The aim of our study was to test the hypothesis that the use of cell culture medium can increase the number of cells obtained by impression cytology (IC) sampling of the conjunctiva in dry eye patients, and make the analysis of epithelial and lymphocyte cell populations with flow cytometry possible.

Antonia DEMESTICHA, Greece: Laser correction of ametropias is achieved by changing the radius of curvature of a central portion of the cornea. Although current refractive laser technology allows relative uniform correction across an optical zone larger than the scotopic pupil it must be kept in mind that centration of the ablation pattern pertains only to objects on the line of sight. Off-axis objects are imaged not only through the corrected portion of the cornea but additionally through a meniscus of paracentral cornea involving the transition zone as well as untreated cornea. It was the purpose of this study to investigate the role of this optical effect in the peripheral visual fields in patients undergoing photorefractive keratectomy.
