High rate of conversion from ocular hypertension (OH) to glaucoma (UG) in subjects with uveitis

This is a retrospective study from Auckland over a 10-year period including 188 eyes of 139 subjects with either OH or UG and were included for analysis with a mean follow-up of 9.9 years. The most common uveitis causes were...

Detecting glaucoma with only OCT

In this review article, the authors describe a probability model based upon only OCT to detect glaucoma. They explain how normal anatomical variation can lead to false positives and applying a model to account for this improves specificity. The application...

High rate of conversion from ocular hypertension to glaucoma in subjects with uveitis

This is a retrospective study from Auckland over a 10-year period. A total of 188 eyes of 139 subjects with either ocular hypertension (OH) or uveitic glaucoma (UG) were included for analysis with a mean follow up of 9.9 years....

RCT review of surgery for open angle glaucoma

This systematic review and meta-analysis examined eight randomised controlled trials (RCTs) to compare the intraocular pressure (IOP) reducing effect of three types of microstent implantation (Hydrus, iStent, CyPass) combined with phacoemulsification versus phacoemulsification alone for patients with open-angle glaucoma (OAG)...

Trabeculectomy with MMC in post-traumatic angle recession glaucoma

This study aimed to evaluate the outcomes of primary trabeculectomy with mitomycin-C (trab MMC) in phakic eyes with post-traumatic angle recession glaucoma with no prior intraocular surgery. Thirty-two phakic eyes of 32 patients who underwent trab MMC between January-2002 and...

A novel approach to suprachoroidal haemorrhage drainage

The authors describe a novel surgical technique for external drainage of choroidal detachment / suprachoroidal haemorrhage with a butterfly needle. Six eyes with serous and / or haemorrhagic choroidal detachments (five from complicated cataract surgery with vitreous loss, one globe...

Factors influencing the outcome of GT and TBT in PCG

This is a retrospective study between 2013 to 2016 of 452 eyes of patients </=12 years with primary congenital glaucoma (PCG), who underwent either goniotomy (GT) (median age: six months, 120 eyes) or trabeculotomy (TBT) (median age: 5.2 months, 332...

Intraocular pressure changes following TOHM washout

This retrospective study between 2008 and 2019 of 110 eyes with primary open angle glaucoma (POAG), 33 eyes with ocular hypertension (OHT) and 43 eyes with uveitic glaucoma (UG) evaluated the changes in intraocular pressure (IOP) following topical ocular hypotensive...

A pulsatile pump in the TM, a new concept in trabecular outflow research

This is a research article where the authors propose a new model in conceptualising the mechanisms involved in the aqueous outflow at the trabecular meshwork (TM). The authors demonstrated evidence of a pump within the Schlemm’s canal. A pulse generated...

The effects of ab-interno XEN gel implantation on postural IOP elevations

The study involved 18 patients with XEN gel implants, 30 patients who had trabeculectomy, and 30 medically managed glaucoma patients. All patients in XEN gel implant and trabeculectomy groups had at least 11 months of follow-up following successful surgery resulting...

Efficacy and safety of novel PF brimonidine / timolol fixed-combination ophthalmic solution for OAG

This study is a multicentre, randomised, open-label, parallel-group clinical trial to evaluate the efficacy and safety of a newly developed preservative-free (PF) brimonidine / timolol fixed-combination (BTFC) ophthalmic solutions as compared with preservative-containing (PC) BTFC ophthalmic solution in adult patients...

Uveitis‐Glaucoma‐Hyphaemia syndrome retrospective case-control study

The authors present the findings of a case-control study aiming to assess uveitis‐glaucoma‐hyphaemia (UGH) syndrome, focusing on the resolution, glaucoma development and risk factors. The authors compared three groups each containing 71 patients. Each group contained patients with UGH syndrome,...
