The aim of this study was to examine the relationship between visual field (VF) loss, vision-related quality of life (QoL) and glaucoma-related symptoms in a large cohort of primary open angle glaucoma (POAG) patients. POAG patients with or without VF defects or "glaucoma suspect" patients were considered eligible. QoL was assessed using the validated versions of the 25-item National Eye Institute Visual Function Questionnaire (NEI-VFQ-25) and glaucoma-related symptoms were assessed using the Glaucoma Symptom Scale (GSS)...

BACKGROUND: We performed a meta-analysis to determine the impact of mild, moderate, and severe visual field loss on quality of life (QoL) in patients with glaucoma. METHODS: A comprehensive literature search was performed using the PubMed, Excerpta Medica dateBASE and China National Knowledge Infrastructure databases to identify relevant articles published before June 30, 2016. Patients' QoL was measured using the Glaucoma Quality of Life-15 Questionnaire (GQL-15)...

BACKGROUND: Glaucoma is a chronic disease characterized by irreversible optic nerve damage and visual field loss that leads to visual impairment and blindness; ultimately limiting personal independence and compromising overall quality of life of affected individuals. There is paucity of information on how glaucoma affects the quality of life of patients in low and middle-income countries where resources for both diagnosis and treatment of such conditions are limited. In this study we investigate the impact of glaucoma on quality of life in Ethiopian patients...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Angle closure glaucoma is a leading cause of blindness globally and trends of how best to treat this disease are evolving. The advent of anterior segment imaging aids our understanding of pathogenesis and allows more robust and objective measurement of treatment modalities. We will also review recent literature regarding the role of laser and surgical interventions for the treatment of primary angle closure disease. RECENT FINDINGS: Recent studies evaluating the efficacy of laser peripheral iridotomy (LPI) in primary angle closure suspects (PACs) show that while it is a safe intervention and initially anterior chamber angle widens following the laser treatment, the effect is lost with time...

PURPOSES: The increase in quality and life expectancy, often leads to many patients asking the glaucoma specialist whether some sports, activities or hobbies would affect their illness. The aim of this article is to establish guidelines for patients, based on the scientific evidence of published papers. METHODS: Review of all published articles on glaucoma and sports or other activities. The papers were classified according to the level of scientific evidence based on the Oxford Centre for Evidence-Based Medicine classification...

PURPOSE: Is to control intraocular pressure (IOP) (up to 21 mmHg), to decrease medical treatment after trabeculectomy and to slow down or stop progression and deterioration in visual fields in glaucoma patients. METHODS: A retrospective study. The charts of all trabeculectomies done in the Department of Ophthalmology at the Skåne University Hospital, Sweden during 2010 were retrospectively evaluated. The study was performed during fall 2012, so the longest follow-up is almost 2 years...

BACKGROUND: Presentation with advanced glaucoma is the major risk factor for lifetime blindness. Effective intervention at diagnosis is expected to minimise risk of further visual loss in this group of patients. AIM: To compare clinical and cost-effectiveness of primary medical management compared with primary surgery for people presenting with advanced open-angle glaucoma (OAG). METHODS: Design: A prospective, pragmatic multicentre randomised controlled trial (RCT)...

OBJECTIVES: Visual impairment and blindness are major public health problems causing significant suffering, disability, loss of productivity, and diminishing quality of life for millions of people. This study explored the factors associated with the overall vision-related quality of life (VRQoL) and its different domains in the adult population of Nagorno Karabakh and assessed the independent contribution of specific eye diseases to VRQoL. STUDY DESIGN: A cross-sectional study...

INTRODUCTION: Maroteaux-Lamy syndrome (MLS) is a rare progressive condition characterized by inflammation and scarring of multiple organs. Ocular complications caused by anterior segment abnormalities commonly cause visual impairment in MLS. Angle-closure glaucoma is one such complication, but there are limited data on presentation, workup, and management of this condition. CASE PRESENTATION: This case report describes an atypical presentation of acute angle-closure glaucoma in a patient with MLS despite a prior prophylactic laser peripheral iridotomy-which would typically prevent an acute angle-closure attack-that was patent and intact at the time of angle closure...

#15
Sara Pose-Bazarra, Augusto Azuara-Blanco
PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Lens extraction in people with coexisting cataract and open angle glaucoma is associated with a reduction in intraocular pressure (IOP). In primary angle-closure glaucoma (PACG), lens extraction and laser peripheral iridotomy (LPI) can be used to open the anterior chamber angle, increase the outflow through the trabecular meshwork and reduce the IOP. The present review will summarize the recent available literature regarding the role of both interventions for the treatment of glaucoma...

REVIEW
Marisse Masis, Patrick J Mineault, Eileen Phan, Shan C Lin
Cataract extraction is a safe and effective surgery that has been performed in its modern form for several decades. Many studies have noted that cataract extraction could also have a clinically significant role in the control of comorbid glaucoma. Lens extraction decreases the pressure within the eye, and intraocular pressure (IOP) is the only controllable risk factor in glaucoma proven to be effective. A systematic analysis of current evidence is needed to establish strong practice patterns and identify areas where further research is required...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the correlation between contrast sensitivity (CS) and retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) in different areas of vision. METHODS: This report is a sub-analysis of a prospective, observational cohort study investigating changes in performance-based assessment, vision-related quality of life, and clinical measures in patients with moderate to advanced glaucoma. The study included 161 participants with at least a 2-year history of glaucoma who underwent annual testing for 4 years...

PURPOSE: To evaluate anxiety felt by glaucoma patients. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Four-hundred and seventy-two glaucoma patients responded to a questionnaire on anxiety, subjective symptoms, and vision-related quality of life (VR-QOL) associated with glaucoma. Anxiety was evaluated using the State-Trait Anxiety Inventory (STAI), state anxiety (STAI-State) subscale along with our novel questionnaire, assessing visual function and subjective symptoms, specialized for glaucoma...
