PURPOSE: To evaluate the intraocular pressure (IOP) changes accompanying fundal pressure during a cesarean-section procedure under both regional and general anesthesia. METHODS: In total, 60 women scheduled for elective cesarean section, none of them diagnosed with ocular problems, were enrolled in the study. Patients underwent cesarean section under either general (group G, n=30) or regional anesthesia (group S, n=30) according to their choice. IOP was measured with a Tono-Pen before (T1) and after (T2) application of anesthesia, during fundal pressure (T3), and after the birth of the baby (T4)...

Davinder S Grover, Ronald L Fellman
The authors have designed a muscle hook speculum that simultaneously allows the surgeon to isolate and expose both rectus muscles (either the superior and temporal or medial and inferior) for ease of placement of a 350-mm Baerveldt implant. This instrument facilitates the exposure and subsequent placement of either a superior-temporal tube or an infero-nasal tube in a more independent manner. By using the dual muscle hook speculum, an individual surgeon, without a glaucoma-trained assistant, can hook typically both the superior and lateral recti muscles while gaining simultaneous exposure of the quadrant...

Vitreous occlusion of a glaucoma drainage implant (GDI) can lead to failure of the device and severely elevated intraocular pressure. The pathophysiology of tube obstruction is related to central and anterior displacement of vitreous that is drawn into and condenses within the proximal lumen of the tube. This can occur from days to years following GDI surgery. Successful management of vitreous-tube obstruction generally requires manual removal of the condensed vitreous plug with end-grasping forceps. This technique achieves reversal of tube blockage and restoration of GDI function...

Intracorneal hematoma or hemorrhagic descemet detachment is a rare phenomenon. It has been previously described after nonpenetrating glaucoma surgeries such as canaloplasty, viscocanalostomy, and deep sclerectomy. In this report, we describe a rare case of intracorneal hematoma as a yet nondocumented complication after Ahmed glaucoma valve implant surgery.

A 45-year-old woman complained of glare and photophobia after iris-fixated phakic intraocular lens (IFPIOL) implantation in her left eye. The patient underwent prophylactic laser peripheral iridotomies (LPIs) 2 days before surgery. The uncorrected visual acuity after surgery was 20/20 and the intraocular pressure was 14 mm Hg. The slit-lamp examination showed a well-centered IFPIOL and 2 LPIs at 10 and 2 o'clock partially covered by the upper lid. Twenty days after IFPIOL implantation, as symptoms persisted and were intolerable to the patient, we decide to suture iridotomies using a modified Siepser slip-knot technique...

PURPOSE: The authors visualized arterioles from the peripapillary choroid to the optic nerve head in vivo, using swept-source optical coherence tomography angiography. METHODS AND RESULTS: In this case series, we present 3 eyes with visible centripetal branches from the peripapillary choroid. The 3 eyes were diagnosed as glaucoma suspect, normal-tension glaucoma, and primary open-angle glaucoma. In the en face projection images of the choroidal layer, obtained by swept-source optical coherence tomography angiography, the vessels from the peripapillary choroid to the optic nerve head were observed in all 3 eyes; one of them was further evaluated by indocyanine green angiography using the Heidelberg retina angiograph...
