    Cornea, 2013
    Co-Authors: Seong Joon Ahn, Won Ryang Wee, Kyunghoon Shin, Mee Kum Kim, Jiwon Kwon

    Abstract:

    Purpose:To determine the efficacy and safety of Argon Laser photocoagulation of pinguecula by evaluating 1-year outcomes.Methods:Twenty-one eyes of 15 patients treated with Argon Laser photocoagulation (photocoagulation group) and 23 eyes of 16 patients treated with surgical excision (excision group

  • new approach for conjunctivochalasis with Argon Laser photocoagulation
    Canadian Journal of Ophthalmology-journal Canadien D Ophtalmologie, 2012
    Co-Authors: Kyunghoon Shin, Jaehyeong Hwang, Jiwon Kwon

    Abstract:

    Abstract Objective To report a novel approach for conjunctivochalasis using Argon Laser photocoagulation. Design Noncomparative clinical interventional study. Participants We studied 5 eyes of 5 patients with epiphora due to conjunctivochalasis. Methods The patients underwent Argon Laser photocoagulation between April 2011 and July 2011 at Myongji Hospital. The preoperative and postoperative tear break-up time, tear meniscus height, conjunctivochalasis grading, and improvement of symptoms were evaluated. Results Most patients showed improvement of epiphora symptoms. No significant complications were observed during the follow-up period of more than 3 months. Conclusions Argon Laser photocoagulation is a simple and effective procedure for treating epiphora caused by conjunctivochalasis.

  • Argon Laser photoablation of conjunctival pigmented nevus
    American Journal of Ophthalmology, 2006
    Co-Authors: Jiwon Kwon, Jin Wook Jeoung

    Abstract:

    Purpose To evaluate the efficacy of an Argon Laser in the ablation of benign conjunctival pigmented nevi. Design Interventional case series. Methods We conducted Argon Laser ablations for conjunctival pigmented nevus in 30 eyes of 28 patients. Laser ablation was applied directly to the conjunctival pigmented nevus in all patients. All patients were followed up over a period of 12 months. Results In all patients, the conjunctival lesions to which the Argon Laser was applied disappeared almost completely within two days after treatment. No recurrence of lesions was detected in any patient during the follow-up period, nor were any conjunctival scars or conjunctival injections. Conclusions The ArgonLaser ablation of conjunctival pigmented nevi uniformaly resulted in excellent clinical outcomes. Therefore, this study concludes that Argon Laser ablation is a safe and effective modality for the treatment of benign conjunctival nevi, and this method could replace the classical surgical procedure.
