Minimally invasive glaucoma surgery aims to provide a safer and less-invasive means of reducing IOP compared with traditional surgery, with the goal of reducing the need for topical medications. The XEN gel stent is an ab-interno minimally invasive glaucoma surgery device that approaches intraocular pressure reduction by creating a subconjunctival drainage pathway. As with any new device there is lack of experience and knowledge about its long-term results in terms of efficacy, technique, and complications...

PURPOSE: To determine the diagnostic capability of spectral domain optical coherence tomography peripapillary retinal volume (RV) measurements. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A total of 156 patients, 89 primary open-angle glaucoma and 67 normal subjects, were recruited. Spectral domain optical coherence tomography peripapillary RV was calculated for 4 quadrants using 3 annuli of varying scan circle diameters: outer circumpapillary annuli of circular grids 1, 2, and 3 (OCA1, OCA2, OCA3)...

We describe the surgical technique of endoscopic cyclophotocoagulation in a Boston keratoprosthesis type II patient. This patient with ocular cicatricial pemphigoid had pars plana endoscopic cyclophotocoagula through wounds created in the eyelids.This is an open-access article distributed under the terms of the Creative Commons Attribution-Non Commercial-No Derivatives License 4.0 (CCBY-NC-ND), where it is permissible to download and share the work provided it is properly cited.

PURPOSE: To characterize the in vivo effect of selective laser trabeculoplasty (SLT) on the Schlemm canal (SC) in eyes with primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG). MATERIALS AND METHODS: Eighty-one serial horizontal enhanced depth imaging optical coherence tomograph B-scans (interval between B-scans, ∼35 μm) of the nasal corneoscleral limbus were obtained before and 4 weeks after SLT. Fifty B-scans in the overlapping regions before and after SLT were selected for analysis based on the structures of aqueous and blood vessels as landmarks...

PURPOSE: Although some studies suggest a strong link between retinal vessel oxygenation and damage to the retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) seen in glaucoma, it has yet to be conclusively proven. This study compares intraocular retinal oximetry in glaucomatous eyes displaying asymmetrically affected hemifields across different subgroups of glaucoma, namely primary angle closure glaucoma (PACG), primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG), and normal tension glaucoma (NTG). METHODS: In this prospective cross-sectional study, 99 patients (PACG, n=28; POAG, n=37; NTG, n=34) underwent retinal oxygenation and vessel caliber measurements using the Oxymap T1 Retinal Oximeter, Cirrus optical coherence tomography, and Humphrey visual field testing...

PURPOSE OF THE STUDY: The purpose of the study was to investigate the relationship between vision-related quality of life (VRQOL) and mean deviation (MD) of the monocular visual field and integrated binocular visual field (IBVF). METHODS: One hundred eighty VFs (90 pairs) obtained from 90 patients with normal tension glaucoma were included. VRQOL was evaluated using the 25-item National Eye Institute Visual Function Questionnaire (NEI VFQ-25). IBVF was calculated using maximal sensitivity and binocular summation and IBVF MD was calculated...

PURPOSE: β-adrenergic receptor antagonists (β-blockers) used in the treatment of glaucoma are an often-overlooked source of systemic adverse events. Ophthalmic timolol has been associated with severe systemic adverse events including numerous cases resulting in death. In recent years the number of fixed-dose combination therapies for glaucoma has grown rapidly, and among available combination therapies only the nonselective β-blocker timolol is used as the β-blocker component. METHODS: A population-based study was conducted in Ontario, Canada between January 1, 2001 and December 31, 2012 to assess the shift to combination therapies in the management of glaucoma, and to investigate the impact of this shift on the relative use of selective and nonselective β-blockers in patients with this disease...

We report a case of a 54-year-old man, known to have pseudoxanthoma elasticum (PXE), who had a trabeculectomy in his left eye for secondary glaucoma following blunt trauma. Ten years after augmented trabeculectomy, the patient presented to casualty clinic with an inferiorly dislocated, anterior chamber (AC), scleral trabeculectomy flap. Corrected vision was hand movement with an intraocular pressure of 17 mm Hg. There was significant AC inflammation (cells 2+). Gonioscopy revealed a residual mobile scleral flap...

PURPOSE OF THE STUDY: The purpose of the study was to report long-term outcomes and complications of Baerveldt glaucoma implant (BGI) surgery with pars plana tube insertion in children. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The medical records of consecutive aphakic and pseudophakic children (<16 y of age) who underwent BGI surgery with pars plana tube insertion between 1990 and 2013 were retrospectively reviewed. Main outcome measures were intraocular pressure and number of glaucoma medications...

Sekundo's Applanator is a new surgical instrument used mainly in transconjunctival scleral flap suturing in cases of postoperative hypotony after trabeculectomy. In contrast to Hoskins lens, it offers better visualization of the border of the scleral flap with good intraoperative stabilization of the globe; thus, it increases the effectiveness and decreases the time of the surgical procedure. Sekundo's Applanator was also found to be useful in reducing the size of an oversized bleb after trabeculectomy and in the closure of leaking sutureless sclerotomies after vitrectomies...

PURPOSE: To date, there have only been 5 reported cases of orbital cellulitis following implantation of an aqueous tube shunt for glaucoma. Previously reported cases have involved eyes with significant comorbidities and successful management has often required the removal of the device alongside systemic antibiotic therapy. PATIENTS AND METHODS: We present a 53-year-old man with severe orbital cellulitis, 3 months after routine implantation of a Baerveldt tube shunt for primary open angle glaucoma...

PURPOSE OF THE STUDY: The purpose of the study was to examine reoperation rate and complications of resident-performed glaucoma surgeries within the first 90 postoperative days. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A retrospective study of resident-performed glaucoma filtering surgeries at the San Francisco Veterans Affairs Medical Center between 2002 and 2014 was performed. Patients requiring reoperation within 90 days of the initial surgery were included in our study. Combined surgeries were excluded...

In this short report we review previous work toward the identification of the protein and cellular sources of exfoliation glaucoma and described our recent finding on dysfunction of autophagy in Tenon capsule fibroblasts obtained from exfoliation syndrome glaucoma patients at the time of surgery and discuss the potential implications of these findings for understanding the cellular sources of the disease.

PURPOSE: To evaluate the reliability indices [fixation losses, false negative response rates (FN) and false positive response rates] and threshold sensitivities obtained from glaucoma patients with a Compass perimeter and to compare the same with the Humphrey field analyzer (HFA). METHODS: In a cross-sectional study, 97 eyes of 58 subjects (64 glaucoma and 33 glaucoma suspect eyes) underwent visual field examination with Compass and HFA. Any test with a fixation losses, FN or FP of >20% was considered unreliable...

PURPOSE: To compare the lamina cribrosa (LC) intensity in glaucoma-suspect eyes and eyes with mild to moderate glaucoma using swept-source optical coherence tomography. METHODS: Optic disc volume scans were collected using swept-source optical coherence tomography in 19 clinically defined glaucoma-suspect eyes and 29 eyes with mild to moderate glaucoma. LC intensity was measured using Image J software, and the resultant values were normalized using the retinal pigment epithelium and vitreous signal...
