PURPOSE: To analyze clinical outcomes and intraocular pressure (IOP) control following scleral-glued intraocular lens (IOL) fixation in eyes with pseudoexfoliation (PXF). METHODS: A retrospective chart review and outcome analysis was performed on a series of eyes undergoing glue-assisted, scleral-fixated ('scleral-glued') IOL insertion in the setting of PXF and poor or absent capsular support. RESULTS: 28 eyes were included in the study. The indications for scleral-glued IOL fixation included late endocapsular IOL dislocation (21/28, 75%), exchange for iris-fixated IOL due to complication (4/28, 14%), subluxed crystalline lens (2/28, 7%), and aphakia after complicated cataract surgery (1/28, 4%)...

PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to compare the ability of scanning laser polarimetry (SLP) and spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) to predict future visual field conversion of subjects with ocular hypertension and early glaucoma. METHODS: All patients were recruited from the Erlangen glaucoma registry and examined using standard automated perimetry, 24-hour intraocular pressure profile, and optic disc photography. Peripapillary retinal nerve fiber layer thickness (RNFL) measurements were obtained by SLP (GDx-VCC) and SD-OCT (Spectralis OCT)...

PURPOSE: To determine the effect of wearing a protective eye shield (mask) on limbal strain magnitude and variability in glaucoma eyes when sleeping with 1 side of the face down (FD) against a pillow. METHODS: A prospective, randomized, interventional trial was conducted at the Wilmer Eye Institute with 36 glaucoma patients. A contact lens sensor measured limbal strain (output in equivalent millivolts) during intervals of up to 60 minutes in lateral decubitus, FD, and supine positions...

PURPOSE: To compare the effectiveness and safety of 120 applications versus 160 applications of selective laser trabeculoplasty (SLT) at reducing intraocular pressure (IOP) from baseline in glaucoma patients over a 1-year period. METHODS: A retrospective chart review was conducted, comprising 376 eyes from 199 patients who underwent SLT treatment performed by the same glaucoma subspecialist from 2014 to 2015. Data were obtained on patients' clinical features, management, and outcomes...

PURPOSE: To determine the relationship between open-angle glaucoma (OAG) and stroke in the Korean population. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This study was a population-based, cross-sectional study that used data from the Korea National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (KNHANES), a complex, stratified, multistage, probability-cluster survey.

PURPOSE: To compare the diurnal intraocular pressure (IOP)-lowering effect of latanoprostene bunod (LBN) 0.024% with timolol maleate 0.5% in subjects with open-angle glaucoma (OAG) or ocular hypertension (OHT). PATIENTS AND METHODS: Pooled analysis of two phase 3, randomized, multicenter, double-masked, parallel-group, noninferiority trials (APOLLO and LUNAR), each with open-label safety extension phases. Adults with OAG or OHT were randomized 2:1 to double-masked treatment with LBN once daily (qd) or timolol twice daily (bid) for 3 months followed by open-label LBN treatment for 3 (LUNAR) or 9 (APOLLO) months...

PURPOSE: To examine the diurnal variation of static and dynamic anterior segment parameters in young, healthy eyes by comparing anterior segment optical coherence tomography (AS-OCT) measurements obtained in the morning and evening and also in the light and dark. METHODS: Twenty-two subjects ranging from ages 19 to 47 years with no past ocular history were selected (12 male, 10 female; mean age 34.2 y). Imaging was performed with the Tomey CASIA2 AS-OCT device in two fixed lighting environments, light and dark, between the hours of 0830 to 1000 and 1730 to 1900...

PURPOSE: This pilot study was conducted to assess optical coherence tomography (OCT) as a screening tool for glaucoma when used by nonexpert personnel. METHODS: This prospective case-control study included 54 patients with open-angle glaucoma and 54 age-matched comparison individuals. Optovue iVue SD-OCT imaging was performed by nonprofessional photographers on undilated patients. The sensitivity, specificity, negative predictive value, and positive predictive value of iVue scan parameters for detecting open-angle glaucoma were evaluated...

PURPOSE: To report an unusual first manifestation of Coats' disease presenting as an acute angle closure glaucoma attack in an adult patient. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A 37-year-old African woman presented to the emergency department with severe headache, ocular pain, and no light perception (NLP) in the left eye. The left pupil was mid-dilated and nonreactive, and the intraocular pressure by applanation tonometry was 47▒mm Hg. Slit-lamp examination revealed anterior subcapsular opacification (glaukomflecken), posterior synechiae, and total angle closure with iris-bombé...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the relationship between obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS) and glaucoma progression, and to examine the correlation between OSAS severity and rate of visual field (VF) loss. METHODS: Patients with concurrent diagnoses of open-angle glaucoma and OSAS between 2010-2016 were identified. Enrollment criteria consisted of glaucomatous optic neuropathy and VF loss, ≥5 reliable VFs, ≥2 years of follow-up, and polysomnography (PSG) within 12 months of final VF...

PURPOSE OF THE STUDY: To report a novel case of drug-induced angle-closure from aripiprazole (Abilify), an atypical antipsychotic, and propose a mechanism for this association. METHODS/RESULTS: We report a case of a 45 year-old Caucasian woman who presented in subacute angle closure two months after initiating aripiprazole 5 mg daily for depression. This patient reported no prior ocular history and had been on longstanding duloxetine (Cymbalta) 60 mg daily for over ten years prior to starting aripiprazole...

PURPOSE: Traditionally, during trabeculectomy, Mitomycin-C (MMC) is applied to the tissues using surgical sponges. However, alternate modes of application exist. This study assessed the success rates, complication rates, final intraocular pressure (IOP) and bleb characteristics between patients receiving subtenon MMC application by sponge versus irrigation. PATIENTS & METHODS: 100 patients with glaucoma were enrolled and each was randomized to one of the two treatment groups...

PURPOSE: To investigate the effects of continuous systemic administration of esmolol on intraocular pressure (IOP) during laparoscopic and robotic surgeries for recto-sigmoid cancer in a steep Trendelenburg position. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A total of 50 patients undergoing laparoscopic surgery in a steep Trendelenburg position were included. Patients in the esmolol (E) group received a 0.25 mg/kg IV loading dose of esmolol before anesthesia, followed by an infusion of 15 μg/kg/min throughout the operation...

INTRODUCTION: Clinical practice guidelines (CPG) are regarded by many as critical communications providing guidance within specific medical fields. Over a decade ago, the first microinvasive glaucoma surgical procedures (MIGS) were introduced. Since then, a number of these novel intraocular pressure (IOP) controlling surgical options have been approved worldwide. Governing bodies and healthcare administration often utilize CPGs when considering funding for newer technologies. This highlights the importance of well-written, accurate and up-to-date CPGs in the rapidly evolving field of MIGS...
