Lens surgery in patients with lens subluxation misdiagnosed as primary angle-closure glaucoma

Lens subluxation can be caused by many conditions including Marfan syndrome and other hereditary conditions, and blunt trauma. Lens displacement can cause pupillary block and angle closure. This is commonly misdiagnosed as primary angle closure glaucoma (PACG), which can lead...

IOP in children with uveitis

This is a retrospective study of paediatric uveitis (<16-years-old) between July 2002 to June 2016 of a total of 320 children from a single centre: 17.2 % (55/320 patients) developed raised IOP requiring therapy; 11.5% of eyes required glaucoma surgery...

Intracameral sodium hyaluronate for postoperative hypotony after Baerveldt glaucoma implant

This is a retrospective study to examine the effect of 0.1ml of sodium intracameral sodium hyaluronate 1.4% (Healon GV – HGV) in patients who had hypotony (IOP<5mmHg) within three months of having a Baerveldt glaucoma implant (BGI) operation. Hypotony is...

Effect of phacoemulsification on facility of outflow

This is a prospective study to examine the change in electronic Schotz tonographic outflow (TOF) and IOP measurements after phacoemulsification. Intraocular pressure was measured using Goldman‘s applanation tonography (GAT). Data were collected at baseline, three, six and 12 months postoperatively....

Under pressure: intraocular pressure and bariatric surgery

Obesity in the general patient population is increasing. The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence recommends bariatric surgery with body-mass index (BMI) of over 40, or between 35-40 and other significant disease that could be improved with weight loss....

Mono vs. multi-therapy in IOP control

This randomised control trial studied newly diagnosed glaucoma patients given mono‐ or multi‐therapy regarding differences in initial intraocular pressure (IOP) reduction, target IOP levels reached and influence of untreated baseline IOP on IOP reduction. Patients newly diagnosed with manifest primary...

Effect of refractive corneal surgery on IOP and glaucoma progression

Accuracy of intraocular pressure (IOP) measurement depends on the biomechanical properties of the cornea, including its thickness central corneal thickness (CCT) and keratometry (K). Fifty-six eyes of 56 patients with primary open angle glaucoma (POAG) who had a history of...

Beware the disc in myopic patients

Glaucoma is a chronic and progressive optic neuropathy characterised by damage of retinal ganglion cells. Evaluation of structural damage of the optic nerve is important in glaucoma diagnosis. The ISNT rule states that the neuroretinal rim width is generally widest...

Meta-analysis of HLA B27 associated acute anterior uveitis

A literature-based meta-analysis was carried out to look at the various clinical features associated with HLA- B27 acute anterior uveitis (AAU). After an extensive search of literature for HLA B27 uveitis was conducted, 735 results were obtained. Twenty-nine articles were...

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...

Uveitic glaucoma

The purpose of this retrospective study from two tertiary Institutions in Israel over a period of 13 years, is to present the long-term outcomes of uveitic glaucoma and to identify risk factors for progression. The study included 34 patients (53...

Importance of visual fields for detection of progression in glaucoma

Early detection of progression of glaucoma, and escalating treatment is vital to maintain vision in patients. In this paper from the Early Manifest Glaucoma Trial (EMGT) group they compared the earliest detection of progression in visual fields and monoscopic optic...
