FP1115 : Topo-Guided Cross-Linking: Outcome Study and It Relationship To Cellular Biomarkers

Dr. Shruti Kochar, K17834, Dr.Natasha Pahuja, Dr. Rohit Shetty, Dr. Abhijit Sinha Roy

Keratoconus is a corneal disease characterized by progressive thinning and protrusion of cornea.1In patients with progressive keratoconus with a clear central cornea and thinnest corneal thickness >400 microns, corneal cross-linking (KXL) can reduce the risk of progression.2 Keratoconus is a localized disease hence the treatment should be localized and not uniform.3 However, the mechanisms underlying the focal disease and the effect of the molecular factors on treatment outcomes remain unknown.

Oxidative stress has been associated with several human diseases including KC1,2 Environmentally induced oxidative stress in the stroma of KC patients causes an increase in Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS) and decrease in levels of antioxidants at a cellular level which results in degradation of the extracellular matrix and subsequent thinning of the corneal stroma1,3.

FP427 : Polymerase Chain Reaction and Correlation with Treatment Response in Tuberculous Uveitis

Ocular tuberculosis is an extra pulmonary dissemination of Mycobacterium tuberculosis primarily from the lungs. Although ocular presentation is relatively less common than the pulmonary disease, the ocular manifestations present clinically with or without pulmonary involvement. The diagnosis and treatment of ocular tuberculosis is challenging. This is mainly due to the overlapping clinical presentations, lack of systemic evidence of disease, and difficulty in obtaining ocular tissues samples.

FP686 : Role of Vitamin D and Dendritic Cells in Symptomatic Evaporative Dry Eye Disease

Dr. Rashmi DeshmukhD17345, Dr.Rohit Shetty, Dr. Rushad Shroff, Dr. SwaminathanSethu

Dry eye disease (DED) is one of the common disorders of the eye with an estimated prevalence of 5.5% – 33.7% worldwide(1). There has been widespread interest in understanding the disease and developing new treatment modalities for combating the ocular morbidity caused by it, especially the pain and discomfort associated with DED.
