BACKGROUND: The aim of this study was to investigate the factors that influence the outcome of trabectome surgery. METHODS: This was a retrospective nonrandomized study. Seventy-eight glaucoma patients (86 eyes) who underwent trabectome surgeries and were followed up for more than 12 months were included. We classified the subtypes of glaucoma as: primary open-angle glaucoma (23 eyes), pseudo-exfoliation glaucoma (58 eyes), and secondary glaucoma (5 eyes). Forty-seven eyes underwent cataract and trabectome surgeries simultaneously, and 39 underwent only trabectome surgery...

PURPOSE: To study the outcomes of large diameter soft bandage contact lens (BCL) in managing early trabeculectomy bleb leak. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Of 972 eyes that underwent fornix-based trabeculectomy between 2011 and 2015, 19 eyes with bleb leak with at least 1 year follow-up were eligible. Bleb leak was conservatively managed using large diameter BCL (≥15.5 mm in diameter). Success was defined as complete, if bleb leak resolved and the intraocular pressure (IOP) was ≥5 and ≤18 mm Hg with no additional antiglaucoma medication and failure if surgical intervention was needed...

The lamina cribrosa (LC) is a multilayered, collagenous, sieve-like structure at the deep optic nerve head, and is presumed to be the primary site of axonal injury. According to biomechanical theory, intraocular pressure-induced posterior deformation of the LC causes blockage of axonal transport and alters the ocular blood flow, so that the axons of the retinal ganglion cells lead to apoptosis, which results in glaucomatous optic disc change. Although most of the research on the LC to date has been limited to experimental animal or histologic studies, the recent advances in optical coherence tomography devices and image processing techniques have made possible the visualization of the LC structure in vivo...

PURPOSE: To assess in vivo whether diagnostic lumbar puncture (LP) is followed by optic nerve head (ONH) and parapapillary anatomical changes in normal human eyes. METHODS: Prospective, single-center, observational case series. ONH structures (prelaminar tissue surface, anterior surface of the lamina cribrosa, central retinal vessels) and parapapillary structures (internal limiting membrane, posterior surfaces of retinal nerve fiber layer and Bruch membrane/retinal pigment epithelium complex, Bruch membrane opening, posterior surface of the choroid) were quantitatively evaluated by means of swept-source OCT (Triton Ver...

PURPOSE: We investigated whether polymorphisms of the endothelial NO synthase (eNOS) gene are associated with normal tension glaucoma (NTG). We also investigated whether the eNOS polymorphisms are associated with NTG subgroups (NTG with and without optic disc hemorrhage (DH)). METHODS: A total of 251 patients with NTG and 245 healthy volunteers were enrolled in this study. DNA from peripheral blood leukocytes was extracted, and the genotypes of four polymorphisms (rs2070744, rs1549758, rs1799983, and rs2566514) in the eNOS gene were determined using restriction fragment length polymorphism and the SNaPshot method...

PURPOSE: To describe findings and utility of optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) in optic nerve head drusen (ONHD). OBSERVATIONS: A 57-year-old white man presented with a decrease in contrast sensitivity of the inferior visual field in both eyes. Clinical examination, visual fields, optical coherence tomography, fundus autofluorescence and OCTA revealed ONHD bilaterally. A focal decrease in vessel density within the localization of ONHD in both eyes was demonstrated suggesting a connection between those findings...

PURPOSE: Tube exposure remains one of the most common complications after glaucoma drainage device (GDD) implantation, despite various types of patch grafts available today. We present a 4 patient case series following the effectivity of the keratolimbal allograft (KLAL) as a patch graft for cases of tube exposure. Given its inherent population of stem cells, our hypothesis was that this highly replicative, biological tissue would provide an adequate means of glaucoma tube coverage. The subset of patients chosen for the KLAL patch graft all had a history of abnormally scarred conjunctiva or thin sclera...

PURPOSE: The purpose of this is to test the hypothesis the intraocular pressure (IOP) peaks during a stress test [the water drinking test (WDT)] can estimate the risk of future visual field progression in treated primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG) patients. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Design: Prospective, longitudinal study. SETTING: Clinical practice. STUDY POPULATION: Treated POAG patients whose IOP was ≤18 mm Hg and who had no IOP-lowering interventions between the date of the WDT and the last eligible visual field...

AIM: The aim of this study was to evaluate specular microscopy of chronic primary angle-closure glaucoma (CPACG) eyes at least 1 year after Nd:YAG iridotomy, and compare them with CPACG eyes without an iridotomy and age-matched, normal eyes. PATIENTS AND METHOD: Consecutive patients of CPACG at the Glaucoma service were screened. All patients underwent slit-lamp biomicroscopy, +90 D examination, and applanation tonometry. A total of 100 eyes of 100 consecutive patients of CPACG with an Nd:YAG iridotomy performed ≥1 year before, who met all inclusion/exclusion criteria, 60 consecutive CPACG eyes without an iridotomy, and 60 age and refraction-matched control eyes were enrolled...
