OBJECTIVE: To identify barriers to compliance of medical treatment for glaucoma among veterans. METHODS: Patients with glaucoma from the Miami Veterans Affairs Eye Clinic (n=74) filled out a 63-question survey regarding dry eye symptoms, concurrent systemic disease, and medications. The association between glaucoma medical compliance was defined as self-reported adherence to drop regimens greater than 75% of the time. RESULTS: Eighty percent of veterans (n=59) reported compliance with glaucoma therapy...

WHAT IS KNOWN AND OBJECTIVE: Physical bottle characteristics differ of brand name topical glaucoma medications and local generic equivalents. This study compares the bottle characteristics of international topical glaucoma brands versus local brands from the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. METHODS: Data were collected on bottle drum volume, drop volume, bottle squeezability, bottle tip diameter, labels and instructions, cap color coding, and clarity of the drug label. Density-based calculations of drops in bottle volume were assessed using an analytic balance...

Within the field of glaucoma research, neuroprotection is defined as slowing the functional loss in glaucoma by a mechanism independent of lowering of intraocular pressure. There is currently a great potential for research surrounding neuroprotection as it relates to glaucoma. Anatomical targets for neuroprotection should focus on upstream rather than downstream factors, and could include any part of the retinal ganglion cell, the glia, especially astrocytes or Muller cells, and vasculature. The great number of anatomical targets is exceeded only by the number of possible biochemical pathways and potential treatments...

OBJECTIVE: This article investigates the prevalence and attributes of patients with open-angle glaucoma who exhibit improvement of visual field loss in a clinical setting. DESIGN: We conducted a retrospective chart review of patients in a clinical glaucoma practice. PARTICIPANTS: We identified 719 glaucoma patients with at least 5 SITA strategy visual field tests and a minimum continuous follow-up period of 5 years. METHODS: The change in the slope of the visual field index (VFI) over time was illustrated using histogram analysis for the study eye with the worst VFI at baseline...

REVIEW
Nathan M Kerr, Jing Wang, Keith Barton
Recently, many new devices and procedures have been developed to lower intraocular pressure in a less invasive and purportedly safer manner than traditional glaucoma surgery. These new devices might encourage an earlier transition to surgery and reduce the long-term commitment to topical glaucoma medications with their associated compliance and intolerance issues. Although often seen as an adjunct to cataract surgery, a growing body of evidence suggests that primary minimally invasive glaucoma surgery may be a viable initial treatment option...

PURPOSE OF THE STUDY: Glaucoma, a chronic non-communicable disease, and leading cause of irreversible blindness worldwide is a public health problem in Nigeria, with a prevalence of 5.02% in people aged ≥40 years. The purpose of this nationwide survey was to assess Nigerian ophthalmologists' practice patterns and their constraints in managing glaucoma. STUDY DESIGN: Ophthalmologists were sent a semistructured questionnaire on how they manage glaucoma, their training in glaucoma care, where they practice, their access to equipment for diagnosis and treatment, whether they use protocols and the challenges they face in managing patients with glaucoma...

BACKGROUND: Intraocular pressure (IOP)-lowering medications for primary open-angle glaucoma and ocular hypertension commonly contain preservatives that can cause ocular surface damage in many patients. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the efficacy and tolerability of, and compliance to, preservative-free (PF) bimatoprost 0.03% in patients with primary open-angle glaucoma or ocular hypertension (IOP ≥18 mmHg) in a clinical practice setting. METHODS: This open-label study observed patients who were switched to PF bimatoprost 0...

BACKGROUND: Glaucoma management is challenging to patients as well as to the eye care providers. The study is aimed at describing the challenges faced by providers using qualitative methods. METHODS: In-depth interviews were conducted with selected Ophthalmologists and resident doctors in ophthalmology at centres offering medical and surgical glaucoma services in Lagos state, Nigeria, according to established qualitative methods. This was done using semi-structured, open ended questions to explore the providers' perspective on glaucoma burden, challenges in the management, surgery for glaucoma, acceptance of glaucoma surgery by patients, and recommendations for improving glaucoma services...

AIM: To study the reasons of intraocular pressure (IOP) resistance to therapy in patients with glaucoma. MATERIAL AND METHODS: During the period 2011-2013 we examined 72 primary glaucoma patients (stage I-III), 44 women and 28 men, aged 49-87 years (65.2±2.5 years on average) referred by local ophthalmologists due to poor response to hypotensive therapy. RESULTS: We suggest that glaucoma should be regarded as resistant if, despite combination therapy with three antihypertensive drugs at optimal doses, IOP stays above the target...

PURPOSE: To compare optical coherence tomography (OCT) detected, optic nerve head (ONH) compliance within control and experimental glaucoma (EG) eyes of 15 monkeys at EG onset. METHODS: Intraocular pressure (IOP) was chronically elevated in one eye of each animal using a laser. Experimental glaucoma onset was identified using confocal scanning laser tomography (CSLT). Optical coherence tomography ONH imaging (40 radial B-scans) was performed at 10 mm Hg before and after laser...

During the clinical practice of glaucoma, the fine management is needed in patient's eye history taking, clinical material organization, the standardization, normalization, advantage complement of clinical examination and compliance evaluation of anti-glaucoma medication. The fine management of the glaucoma diagnosis and treatment will enable the greatest extent of visual protection.(Chin J Ophthalmol, 2016, 52: 401-403).

METHODS: This study examined 2119 patients enrolled in the Primary Open-Angle African-American Glaucoma Genetics (POAAGG) study. A total of 59 eyes were identified as legally blind as a result of POAG (cases) and were age-and sex-matched to 59 non-blind eyes with glaucoma (controls). Chart reviews were performed to record known and suspected risk factors...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the knowledge and compliance of patients with open-angle glaucoma in order to propose an approach by therapeutic education, validated for other chronic pathologies. METHODS: A questionnaire-based interview of all patients in the waiting room of the glaucoma center is performed by the same health care professional. RESULTS: Out of 200 patients, 73% know they will need to be treated throughout their lives and 95% are aware of the risk of blindness in the absence of appropriate treatment...

PURPOSE: The purpose of this study is to assess the effectiveness and tolerability of a dietary supplement with a combination of omega-3 fatty acids and antioxidants on dry eye symptoms caused by chronic instillation of antihypertensive eye drops in patients with glaucoma. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A total of 1,255 patients with glaucoma and dry eye symptoms related to antiglaucoma topical medication participated in an open-label, uncontrolled, prospective, and multicenter study and were instructed to take three capsules a day of the nutraceutical formulation (Brudypio(®) 1...

Ocular hypertension is a major risk factor for the development and progression of glaucoma. Frequent and long-term application of latanoprost often causes undesirable local side effects, which are a major cause of therapeutic failure due to loss of persistence in using this glaucoma medical therapy. In the present study, we developed a thermosensitive chitosan-based hydrogel as a topical eye drop formulation for the sustained release of latanoprost to control ocular hypertension. The developed formulation without preservatives may improve compliance and possibly even efficacy...
