OBJECTIVES: To determine the early signs of pseudoexfoliation (PEX) in fellow eyes of cases with unilateral PEX. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Fellow eyes of 34 cases with unilateral PEX were evaluated by slit-lamp and gonioscopy. Findings associated with PEX were recorded. RESULTS: Mean age was 67.8±8.1 years (range 55-86 years). Twenty-five patients (73.5%) had pigmentation in the inferior angle and 23 patients (67.6%) had Sampaolesi's line located on the inferior angle in fellow eyes...

Purpose. To evaluate the effectiveness of deep sclerectomy with T-flux implant (DS T-flux) in patients with pseudoexfoliation glaucoma (PExG). Methods. 20 eyes of 18 patients with medically uncontrolled PExG have undergone DS T-flux implantation. Postoperatively we evaluated the IOP values and the frequency of complications. The minimum follow-up time was 12 months (20 eyes) and the maximum 24 months (10 eyes). Results. The mean preoperative IOP was 36.8 ± 8.7 mmHg. The IOP significantly decreased throughout all postoperative periods (P < 0...

PURPOSE: Macular optical coherence tomography (OCT) analysis can be used for quantitative measures of optic nerve atrophy at a location far from the optic nerve head. This recently led to the finding of microcystic macular edema (MME), that is vacuolar inclusions in the macular inner nuclear layer, in some glaucoma patients. The involvement of individual retinal layers is yet unclear in glaucoma. In this study we systematically investigated glaucoma-induced changes in macular layers to evaluate whether glaucoma-associated damage extends beyond the macular ganglion cell layer...

PURPOSE OF THE STUDY: The purpose of the study was to analyze choroidal vessel diameters in pseudoexfoliation (PXF) and pseudoexfoliation glaucoma (PXFG) using spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT). MATERIALS AND METHODS: Fifty patients (100 eyes) with PXF and PXFG who underwent high-definition 1-line raster SD-OCT imaging at New England Eye Center, Boston, were retrospectively identified and divided into unilateral PXFG (26 patients, 52 eyes), unilateral PXF (4 patients, 8 eyes), bilateral PXFG (4 patients, 8 eyes), and bilateral PXF (16 patients, 32 eyes)...

Purpose Quality control is particularly important in invasive medicine. As cataract surgery is the most frequently performed and most successful ophthalmic surgery, quality control should become mandatory. Patients and Methods Retrospective analysis of all cataract procedures performed in a 12 months period (01. 07. 2014 - 30. 06. 2015) at our hospital, using an internet-based EUREQOU database. This database is easy to use and allows local results to be compared with all participants in Switzerland and elsewhere in Europe...

The term "luxury foodstuffs" refers to foods which are not consumed because of their nutritional value. Classic modern luxury foodstuffs are alcohol, caffeine-containing drinks, cocoa, sugar and tobacco. The following review article examines some of these modern luxury foodstuffs in detail, as well as their influence on glaucoma. Thus, small quantities of alcohol lower high intraocular pressure and have a positive influence on the blood circulation of the optic nerve. In addition, red wine polyphenols exert vasoprotective effects...

Purpose To investigate the state of dark adaptation and macular blood flow in different forms of glaucoma. Methods Eighteen eyes of 18 patients with primary open-angle glaucoma, 14 eyes of 14 patients with pseudoexfoliation glaucoma, and 10 eyes of 10 patients with childhood glaucoma (CG) were examined by means of dark adaptometry, scanning-laser retinal flowmetry, and retinal tomography. Results All glaucomatous eyes had comparable optic disc excavation (one-way ANOVA, p = 0.138). Eyes with CG had significantly lower best-corrected visual acuity than the other groups (Tukey, all p < 0...

Another aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of these changes on the accuracy of intraocular lens (IOL) power calculation and postoperative refraction. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Twenty-two eyes of 22 patients with PEX and 30 eyes of 30 normal patients who underwent uneventful phacoemulsification surgery and IOL implantation were included in the study...

BACKGROUND: It is estimated that pseudoexfoliation syndrome (PEX) occurs in 10-20% of the general population over 60 years of age, and its morbidity increases with age. Some research indicates that PEX may be a systemic disease. Some experts state that it can also lead to ear dysfunction. OBJECTIVES: The aim of the study was to evaluate the incidence and type of hearing disorders in patients with PEX. MATERIAL AND METHODS: The study included 51 patients (102 eyes) hospitalized in Wroclaw Medical University Hospital's Department of Ophthalmology and scheduled for cataract surgery in 2012-2014...

PURPOSE: Cellular stress conditions are important mechanisms implicated in the pathogenesis of pseudoexfoliation syndrome. One of the potential cellular responses to these stress conditions is induction of autophagy. The purpose of this study was to evaluate whether genetic variants in three critical genes of autophagy (ATG16L, ATG2B, ATG5) may be involved in the development of pseudoexfoliation syndrome (XFS) and pseudoexfoliation glaucoma (XFG) in a Spanish population. METHODS: 108 patients (64 XFS, 44XFG) and 118 healthy controls were evaluated...

: This review analyzed the effect of pseudoexfoliation (PXF) syndrome on the risk for surgical complications during phacoemulsification. Peer-reviewed literature in Medline, Embase, Lilacs, Web of Science, and Cochrane databases was systematically searched, along with gray literature in the Teseo and National Institutes of Health clinical trials database. Clinical trial, cohort, case-control, and cross-sectional studies comparing phacoemulsification complications in patients with and without PXF were identified, and 22 of 30 studies were selected for analysis...

BACKGROUND: To report a case of postoperative fibrous membrane formation occluding the visual axis in the presence of anterior capsular phimosis in a patient with pseudoexfoliation syndrome. CASE PRESENTATION: A 79-year-old Asian woman with pseudoexfoliation syndrome underwent uneventful phacoemulsification and implantation of one-piece hydrophilic acrylic square-edged intraocular lens (Cristalens) in the right eye. Two months later, she had blurred vision in the right eye with the best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA) of 20/40...

OBJECTIVE OF THE STUDY: The objective of the study was to investigate the change in carotid arterial flow in pseudoexfoliation glaucoma (XFG) for determining its diagnostic value. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Patients with XFG (N=30) and control subjects (N=22) were recruited. Common carotid artery (CCA) and internal carotid artery of each participant were examined using color Doppler and B-mode ultrasonography. Resistivity index (RI), as a flow parameter of interest, was measured and statistically compared between the 2 groups...

BACKGROUND: Toll-like receptor 4 (TLR4) non-coding polymorphisms are associated to primary open angle glaucoma (POAG), normal tension glaucoma, and pseudoexfoliation glaucoma. This study was performed to determine whether non-coding single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in the TLR4 gene contribute to POAG in a Mexican population. MATERIAL AND METHODS: A total of 187 unrelated Mexican patients with POAG and 109 control subjects were included. Allelic, genotypic, and haplotypic diversity was assessed for the non-coding polymorphisms rs11536889, rs1927911, rs12377632, and rs2149356 of the TLR4 gene...
