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...

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...

SLT versus medication for OAG

This paper appraised existing randomised clinical trials (RCTs), which compared selective laser tabeculoplasty (SLT) with medical therapy for open-angle glaucoma (OAG), and performed a systematic review and meta-analysis. A total of 1229 patients in eight trials were included from PubMed,...

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...

Van Herick Plus

This a consecutive cross-sectional study of 95 phakic patients over the age of 40-years-old. By applying a short, vertical slit beam, the inferior angle at the scleral-limbal junction at 6 o’clock position was evaluated, photographed and assessed by a ratio...

Screening and adherence to glaucoma care in Enugu, Nigeria

The authors present the findings of a cross-sectional survey of participants diagnosed with glaucoma during free eye screening. A total of 830 participants were screened from two outreaches:182 new glaucoma cases were diagnosed (63 glaucoma and 119 glaucoma suspects). There...

Results of four years of implantation of XEN glaucoma gel stent

This multi-centred prospective, non-randomised study presents the long-term clinical outcomes in patients after implantation of transscleral XEN Glaucoma Gel Microstent, 63μm. (XEN-GGM, Allergan, New Jersey). It was conducted in Austria, Canada and Germany. Sixty-four consecutive eyes of 64 patients with...

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....
