Davinder S Grover, Ronald L Fellman
PURPOSE: To report outcomes for a novel ab interno bleb revision technique and spatula. PATIENTS AND METHODS: This is a retrospective chart review. RESULTS: A total of 21 eyes of 21 patients underwent ab interno bleb revision with the Grover-Fellman biplanar sclerostomy spatula. Mitomycin C was given at least 1 week preoperation. The mean age of the patients and blebs were 67 and 6.75 years, respectively. The mean follow-up is 10.6 months (range: 3 to 17 mo)...

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...

PURPOSE: The purpose of this study is to investigate the use of anterior segment enhanced depth imaging (EDI) optical coherence tomography (OCT) for ex vivo lamina cribrosa (LC) imaging. MATERIALS AND METHODS: After removing anterior segment and vitreous, the optic nerve head (ONH) tissue of porcine eyes was placed on a customized eye holder for imaging. Serial EDI OCT B-scans (interval, ∼35 μm) of the ONH were obtained using anterior segment module of spectral-domain OCT...

PURPOSE: To study the distribution of macular ganglion cell-inner plexiform layer (GC-IPL) thickness and peripapillary retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thickness in children with refractive errors. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Two hundred forty-three healthy eyes from 139 children with refractive error ranging from -10.00 to +5.00 D were recruited from the National University Hospital Eye Surgery outpatient clinic. After a comprehensive ocular examination, refraction, and axial length (AL) measurement (IOLMaster), macular GC-IPL and RNFL thickness values were obtained with a spectral domain Cirrus high definition optical coherence tomography system (Carl Zeiss Meditec Inc...

PURPOSE: The purpose is to describe the outcome of trabeculectomy with transscleral cyclophotocoagulation (TSCPC) as an initial intervention for secondary childhood glaucoma in Northern Tanzania. METHODS: A retrospective, consecutive case series was analyzed of all children with secondary childhood glaucoma who underwent initial trabeculectomy or TSCPC between 2000 and 2013 at a referral eye unit in Northern Tanzania. Retrospective data were collected on causes of glaucoma, intraocular pressure (IOP), visual acuity, complications, and subsequent interventions...

PURPOSE: To report a case of ocular decompression retinopathy that developed in a child after undergoing goniotomy for uncontrolled pediatric uveitic glaucoma. PATIENT AND METHODS: We describe an 11-year-old Hispanic boy with a history of idiopathic uveitis and elevated intraocular pressure (IOP) in both eyes. He developed marked elevation of the IOP in the right eye (44 mm Hg) despite glaucoma medical therapy. RESULTS: The patient's right eye was treated with goniotomy, with reduction of vision to 20/70 and IOP to between 4 and 7 mm Hg during the first week postoperatively...

PURPOSE: To identify factors associated with visual field (VF) progression in optical coherence tomography (OCT)-guided progression analysis (GPA) using a topographic approach. METHODS: Topographic components of OCT-GPA maps (Cirrus HD-OCT; Carl Zeiss Meditec) were classified according to location (temporal, superotemporal, superonasal, nasal, inferornasal, and inferotemporal), size (small, medium, and large), shape (wedge and irregular types), and pattern of retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) progression (widening, deepening, and new development)...

PURPOSE: There is scarcity of European data about intraocular pressure (IOP)-lowering prescribing patterns. We aimed to describe and discuss the nationwide prescription of these medications in Portugal. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This was a cross-sectional study including all patients who were prescribed at least 1 IOP-lowering medication in 2015 in Portugal. All ocular hypotensive drug prescriptions were gathered from the common electronic drug prescription system used by all hospitals and clinics in Portugal...

PURPOSE: To highlight the potential risk of glaucoma drainage device erosion following ptosis surgery. METHODS: Case report. RESULTS: A 71-year-old man underwent uncomplicated superotemporal Ahmed glaucoma valve implantation in the left eye in 2008. Approximately 8 years later, the patient underwent bilateral ptosis repair, which successfully raised the upper eyelid position. Three months postoperatively, the patient's glaucoma drainage implant tube eroded through the corneal graft tissue and overlying conjunctiva to become exposed...

PURPOSE: To investigate the relationship between the Bruch membrane opening-minimum rim width (BMO-MRW) (global and temporal) parameters with spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) and visual field (VF) sensitivity on the 10-2 test in patients with advanced glaucoma. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This cross-sectional, observational study included a total of 33 eyes of 29 patients. To evaluate VF sensitivity, automated white-on-white perimetry was performed using a Humphrey field analyzer...

PURPOSE: To compare measurements from an Icare HOME rebound self-tonometer compared with those from a Goldmann applanation tonometer (GAT). MATERIALS AND METHODS: A total of 130 subjects with suspected or confirmed glaucoma in our outpatient clinic were examined. Intraocular pressure (IOP) was measured using both an Icare HOME unit, by an ophthalmologist and by each participant, and again using a GAT, by an ophthalmologist. The Icare HOME self-measurement [Icare HOME performed by the patients (HOMEp)] was compared with those taken by the specialist using that unit and a GAT...

PURPOSE: To investigate the effect of the lateral decubitus (LD) position on the anterior chamber (AC) angle in healthy subjects. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Twenty-three healthy young subjects were included in this prospective observational study. We measured AC angle parameters in the sitting and the left LD positions using anterior segment optical coherence tomography (Visante OCT): trabecular-iris angle (TIA), angle opening distance (AOD500), trabecular-iris space area (TISA500), anterior chamber width, lens vault, and anterior chamber depth...

PURPOSE: To describe the Glaucoma Staging Application (GSA), a new application for automated classification of visual field (VF) severity that can be used in any Humphrey perimeters. We also tested and validated its performance in staging glaucomatous VFs defects and assessed its reproducibility. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The GSA is based upon the modified University of São Paulo Glaucoma Visual Field Staging System, and consists of 3 sections: severity based on the visual field index; defect location based on eccentricity; and extent of topographic damage by hemifields...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the diagnostic ability of wide-field retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) maps with swept-source optical coherence tomography (SS-OCT) for detection of preperimetric (PPG) and early perimetric glaucoma (EG). METHODS: One hundred eighty-four eyes, including 67 healthy eyes, 43 eyes with PPG, and 74 eyes with EG, were analyzed. Patients underwent a comprehensive ocular examination including red-free RNFL photography, visual field testing and wide-field SS-OCT scanning (DRI-OCT-1 Atlantis; Topcon, Tokyo, Japan)...

PURPOSE: Acute angle closure attacks are frequently accompanied by corneal edema. However, little is known about corneal endothelial cell status at different stages of angle closure. Here, we compared endothelial cell density (ECD) in unoperated eyes with that in eyes with open angles (OAs) and various stages of angle closure disease. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The study was conducted at Aravind Eye Hospitals in India. Masked examiners performed gonioscopy to classify each eye as follows: (1) OA, (2) primary angle closure suspect, or (3) primary angle closure (PAC)/primary angle closure glaucoma (PACG)...
