Primary angle closure glaucoma (PACG) is more blinding (1 in 4 cases) than primary open angle glaucoma (1 in 10 cases). Cataract surgery is an effective initial treatment for majority of cases of PACG. However, cataract surgery alone may not be enough to control intraocular pressure (IOP) in cases with extensive synechial angle closure glaucoma. It is reported that glaucoma drainage surgery is needed in 12% of PACG cases after cataract surgery. Some experts combine cataract surgery with either goniosynechialysis (GSL) or endocyclophotocoagulation (ECP) to enhance IOP control...

Introduction: To ascertain differences in intraocular pressure (IOP) measurement and their repeatability between dynamic contour tonometry (DCT) and Goldmann/Perkins applanation tonometry (GAT) at two different atmospheric pressures. Materials and methods: Forty-one eyes of 41 healthy consenting subjects were enrolled for this observational, cross-sectional study. Pachymetry and IOP measurements with DCT and GAT for both eyes of each subject at Acapulco (0 m from sea level) and at Mexico City (2,234 m from sea level) were done by the same observer...

Introduction: To compare the early postoperative hypotony rates and intraocular pressure (IOP) in two groups of eyes using either 23-gauge (23G) or 25-gauge (25G) needle in the creation of the anterior chamber entry tract for Baerveldt tube. The primary outcome measure was incidence of hypotony, and secondary outcome measures included comparison of mean IOP and other early complications. Materials and methods: Ours was a retrospective case review of consecutive patients who underwent 350 mm2 Baerveldt implantation in two units over a 2-year period...

Louise J Lu, Laura Hall, Ji Liu
Conventional glaucoma surgeries, such as trabeculectomy and glaucoma drainage device (GDD) surgery, have been enhanced by surgeons to improve outcome and decrease complications. Over the last two decades, adjuncts, such as collagen matrix implants, fibrin adhesives, and amniotic membrane transplantation (AMT) have been found to be effective in modulating fibrosis and scarring during the wound-healing process, reducing postoperative inflammation, and repairing bleb leakage or conjunctival erosion. The use of these tools provides several advantages when used in trabeculectomy, GDD surgery, and surface reconstruction associated with glaucoma surgery complications...

Aim: This review aims to critically analyze the current literature on the relationship of optical coherence tomography (OCT) measures to cognition and dementia. Background: Optical coherence tomography, a noninvasive method of imaging neuroretinal layers, and OCT angiography, a highly precise method of examining retinal vasculature, have widely been used to aid in the diagnosis and monitoring of a variety of ocular diseases. There is now an increasing body of evidence relating the structural and microvascular changes of the retina to cognitive impairment...

Surgical management of elevated intraocular pressure (IOP) in an eye with scarred conjunctiva, an encircling band, and silicone oil has limited options. By combining the flow restrictor of the Ahmed Glaucoma Valve (New World Medical, Rancho Cucamonga, California) and the capsule of the encircling band as a conduit for aqueous flow, immediate pressure reduction could theoretically be achieved in eyes with limited conjunctival mobilization. This is a description of a surgical technique in a case of a patient with multiple ocular surgeries with uncontrolled multimechanism glaucoma despite using all available topical and oral glaucoma medications...

Aim: To evaluate by anterior segment optical coherence tomography (AS-OCT) the medium-term (mean duration 3.2 years) anatomical changes in the anterior chamber angle (ACA) after laser peripheral iridoplasty. Materials and methods: This is a longitudinal, retrospective case series of 31 eyes of 31 patients with primary angle-closure suspicion, primary angle closure (PAC), or primary angle-closure glaucoma (PACG) who underwent laser peripheral iridoplasty. All patients had persistent iridotrabecular contact (ITC) despite the presence of a patent peripheral iridotomy (PI)...

Aim: To determine the safety and efficacy of intraoperative injection of mitomycin C (MMC) against conventional sponge-applied MMC during trabeculectomy. Materials and methods: This study was a retrospective, comparative case series. Thirty eyes with primary open-angle glaucoma underwent consecutive trabeculectomies with MMC injection (injection group), and thirty eyes with sponge-applied MMC were as controls (sponge group). Data were collected preoperatively and postoperatively at 1 day, 1 week, 1 month, 3 months, 6 months, and 1 year after surgery...

Aim: To evaluate the safety and efficacy of the M4 (porous polyethylene plate) Ahmed Glaucoma Valve (AGV) drainage implant in a multicenter retrospective study. Materials and methods: A retrospective chart review of medical records of patients who had undergone the M4 Ahmed valve was performed from January 2013 to April 2015. The primary outcome measure was surgical failure defined as: Less than a 20% reduction in baseline intraocular pressure (IOP) to last follow-up visit, final IOP less than 5 mm Hg or greater than 18 mm Hg, reoperation for glaucoma, or loss of light perception vision...

AIM: To describe the surgical management of glaucoma in a patient with severe scleromalacia, and secondary angle closure. INTRODUCTION: The management of glaucoma with coexisting scleromalacia plus secondary angle closure is challenging as most commonly performed incisional glaucoma surgery as well as minimally invasive glaucoma surgery (MIGS), which targets the drainage angle are all contraindicated. CASE REPORT: Medically refractory glaucoma in a 60-year-old male with a 30-year history of granulomatosis with polyangiitis resulting in extensive severe scleromalacia, cicatricial lower lid retraction with significant conjunctival exposure, and widespread synechial angle closure from chronic anterior uveitis was managed with combined phacoemulsification cataract surgery, and endoscopic cyclophotocoagulation (ECP)...

Steroids are a group of anti-inflammatory drugs, commonly used to treat ocular and systemic conditions. Unmonitored use of steroids especially in eye drop formulations is common in situations when it is easily available over-the-counter, resulting in undesirable side effects. Among the ocular side effects, cataract and glaucoma are common. Steroid-induced ocular hypertension was reported in 1950, when long-term use of systemic steroid was shown to increase the intraocular pressure (IOP). Chronic administration of steroids in any form with raised IOP can cause optic neuropathy resulting in steroid-induced glaucoma...

AIM: The current treatment for posterior capsular opacification (PCO), neodymium-doped yttrium aluminum garnet (Nd:YAG) laser capsulotomy, may lead to increased intraocular pressure (IOP). Our aim was to survey routines in the management of IOP spikes and to identify the rate of IOP spikes following prophylactic apraclonidine treatment. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A survey questionnaire among ophthalmologists and a retrospective registry review was used. Patients were administered apraclonidine 0...
