On postoperative day 15, UCVA
was 5/10, BCVA of 7/10 with refraction of +1,00, -4.50 [alpha] 55 and TA was 15.3 D [alpha] 167 in the right eye and UCVA
was 6/10, BCVA was 9/10 with refraction of +2.00, -4.00 [alpha] 70 and TA was 9.4 D [alpha] 10 in the left eye (Figure 2 a2-b2).
This statistically significant difference indicates better UCVA
in STI group due to less SIA as shown in Table 2.
Best-corrected visual acuity with a contact lens was included in this analysis because the evaluation of visual acuity was limited to BSCVA or UCVA
in most previous trials.
Las especies que no pudieron ser identificadas en terreno, fueron colectadas, herborizadas y determinadas, utilizando literatura taxonomica pertinente; Marticonera & Rodriguez (1995, 2001, 2003, 2005), Moore (1983), Landrum (1988) y Matthei (1997), complementado con la consulta a expertos y al herbario de la Pontificia Universidad Catolica de Valparaiso (UCVA
and BCVA for both near and distance in the patients after implantation of bilateral aspheric apodized MFIOL +3D add was assessed one week and one-month postop.
Complete ophthalmic clinical examination including uncorrected visual acuity (UCVA
), best corrected visual acuity (BCVA), slit lamp examination of anterior and posterior segments and IOP measurement was carried out in all the patients.

The company said the patients receiving the Light Adjustable Lens, followed by light treatment with the LDD, achieved UCVA
of 20/20 or better at six months postoperatively at approximately twice the rate of patients receiving a monofocal lens.
All the patients were subjected to detailed clinical examination that included Uncorrected visual acuity (UCVA
), best corrected visual acuity (BCVA), slit lamp examination of anterior and posterior segments.
The uncorrected visual acuity (UCVA
) reached 20/25 or better 3 days after surgery, without cells in the anterior chamber, high intraocular pressure (IOP), or any other complications.
Uncorrected visual acuity (UCVA
) was hand motion, best corrected visual acuity (BCVA) was counting fingers from one meter with aphakic spectacle correction in the right eye and 20/20 in the left eye.
In this study, we adopted accelerated cross-linking (ACXL) treatment in pediatric keratoconus because of its biomechanical strengthening effects on the corneal tissue, commensurate to the standard protocol , and the previously reported improvement in UCVA
and CDVA post-ACXL .
