Because that the phase matching of degenerate operation for such a PPLN with 31 [micro]m grating period is realized at the temperature of 94[degrees]C, we used an oven to heat the MgO:PPLN, which can also limit the amount of photorefractive damage caused by the strong 1 [micro]m pump.
Animal experimental studies revealed that topical application of NGF accelerated restoration of corneal sensitivity and promoted cornea epithelial proliferation and nerve regeneration after laser in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) or photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) [85-87].
Las causas de las queratitis infecciosas en nuestra poblacion fueron: en 31 casos (31.6%) asociados a traumatismos; 15 pacientes (15.3%) tuvieron antecedente de uso de esteroides topicos; 11 casos (11.22%) fueron asociados a lagoftalmos; 4 casos se asociaron al antecedente de uso de lentes de contacto; 2 fueron secundarios a cirugia de PRK (photorefractive keratectomy) y en 35 casos se desconocio el mecanismo o etiologia.
Currently, it is being treated successfully with refractive surgeries like laser in situ keratomileusis (LASIK), for low to moderate myopia,2 and photorefractive keratectomy (PRK), Phakic intraocular lens (PIOL) implantation or refractive lens exchange (RLE) for those with moderate to high myopia.3
Its human trial was conducted in patients who had photorefractive keratectomy.

The strontium barium niobate [Sr.sub.x][Ba.sub.1-x][Nb.sub.2][O.sub.6] (SBN) nanocrystals have exhibited a variety of ferroelectricity [2-4], photorefractive [5], electrooptic, nonlinear optical [1, 6], and thermoelectric properties [7] which are potentially important for many applications in various fields.
