Anterior segment OCT predicts gonioscopic angle closure

This is a prospective observational study of 342 subjects over four years. Sixty-five were controls who had open angles both on gonioscopy and AS-OCT, while 277 had open angles only on gonioscopy but iridotrabecular contact (ITC) on AS-OCT (one to...

New iprism SX from Glaukos for trabecular bypass surgery optomizes intraoperative control and visibility

The new iprismĀ® SX single-use surgical gonioscopic lens provides exceptional clarity with expanded views of all angle structures and enhanced design characteristics, including integrated stabilisation features.

A ciliary body tumour

The authors describe a case report of a 60-year-old woman found to have advanced angle closure glaucoma in her right eye and appositional closure of half of the left eye and no glaucoma. The patient had previously undergone two trabeculectomies...

Intraocular pressure reduction after cataract surgery

Several studies have shown the efficacy of cataract surgery in lowering intraocular pressure (IOP), especially in angle closure glaucoma compared to open angle. A total of 156 eyes of 109 patients (without glaucoma or with medically controlled glaucoma) were included....

Swept-source OCT for measuring peripheral anterior synechiae

The authors report on a cross-sectional study looking at swept-source optical coherence tomography (SS-OCT) for measuring the area and degree of peripheral anterior synechiae (PAS) in patients with angle closure glaucoma. The SS-OCT is commercially available, has a laser wavelength...

Mid-term evaluation of the new Glaukos iStent

This is a prospective non-randomised interventional study to assess the efficacy and safety of the Glaukos GTS-400 iStent combined with cataract surgery. The patients enrolled in the study had cataract and primary open angle glaucoma, pseudoexfoliation glaucoma or ocular hypertension....

Glaucoma surgery in Sturge-Weber syndrome

The authors report the largest retrospective study of surgical results of goniotomoy and trabeculectomy for 42 patients (46 eyes) with glaucoma associated with Sturge-Weber syndrome (SWS). There were 18 males and 24 females, and 62 goniotomy procedures (51 goniotomy surgery,...

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....

Haag-Streit UK and John Weiss & Son have secured exclusive UK distributorships for the VRmagic range of medical simulator products.

Update on primary angle closure glaucoma

This review article considers primary angle-closure glaucoma which is responsible for half of glaucoma-related blindness worldwide. Angle closure is characterised by appositional contact between the iris and trabecular meshwork. It tends to develop in eyes with shallow anterior chambers, anteriorly...

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...

Full thickness macular hole after YAG PI

The authors report a case of macular hole post YAG peripheral iridotomy (PI) of a patient with pre-existing vitreomacular adhesion. Although a relatively safe procedure, some anterior segment complications are well documented such as corneal endothelium damage, rise in IOP,...
