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...

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,...

A novel way to diagnose optic neuropathies using Bruch’s membrane opening

Differential diagnosis of optic neuropathies can be challenging but is crucial for the correct management of the underlying disease and prevention of further damage. Bruch’s membrane opening (BMO) was recently discovered as the anatomical border of the optic disc. BMO...

Glaucoma and capillary perfusion

Elevated IOP is important but not the sole factor responsible for retinal ganglion cell (RGC) death and optic nerve damage in glaucoma. There is increasing evidence that visual loss correlates with macular inner retinal thinning. A total of 148 eyes...

The incidence of retinal vein occlusion in patients with pseudoexfoliation glaucoma

In this retrospective study the authors aimed to evaluate PXF as an independent risk factor for the occurrence of retinal vein occlusion (RVO). Three hundred PXF glaucoma patients (PXF group), 300 non-PXF glaucoma patients, and 599 non glaucoma non-PXF (nGnP...

Incidence and risk factors of ocular hypertension following PPV and SOI

In this prospective, interventional study the authors evaluated the risk factors for elevated intraocular pressure (IOP) after pars plana vitrectomy (PPV) with silicone oil injection (SOI). This study included 254 eyes of 254 patients, with a mean age of 55.33...

Low cost drainage device use in paediatric glaucoma

This is a prospective study from a tertiary referral centre from India of 34 eyes (31 patients) under 16 years with uncontrolled refractory glaucoma with medical treatment. A low cost glaucoma drainage device (GDD) – Aurolab aqueous drainage implant (ADDI),...

Transcriptomic analysis of ocular tissues

Transcriptomics is defined as the analysis of the complete set of RNA transcripts present in a cell under different circumstances, quiescent versus challenge, by microarray analysis. Comparison of transcriptomes identifies genes that are differentially expressed in different cell populations under...

Effect of intravenous mannitol in post vitrectomised eyes

The purpose of the study was to evaluate the effect of intravenous mannitol 20% on intraocular pressure in vitrectomised silicone-oil filled eyes. A prospective analysis of consecutive patients was undertaken with their fellow eyes taken as controls. Thirty-one patients were...

Trabeculectomy for normal tension glaucoma

This is a retrospective consecutive, non-comparative case series of 131 eyes of 98 patients undergoing trabeculectomy between 2007 and 2013 in a normal tension glaucoma (NTG) clinic. Assessment of the clinical outcomes include intraocular pressures (IOP) reduction, bleb formation, final...

Resveratrol protects against steroid induced intraocular pressure

Topical and systemic steroid delivery is a very effective treatment for many ocular conditions but is compromised by raised intraocular pressure which in turn leads to death of retinal ganglion cells and irreversible blindness. This is an important consideration with...

SS-OCT assessment of ITC after phacoemulsification

This is a multicentre randomised controlled trial of 22 patients with primary angle closure glaucoma with peripheral anterior synechia and peripheral primary angle closure glaucoma (PACG) with peripheral anterior synechia (PAS) detected by indentation gonioscopy was randomised into two groups....
