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...

Twenty-four hour IOP patterns in patients with thyroid eye disease (OO/GL)

Elevated IOP in patients with thyroid eye disease (TED) can be caused by restriction and compression of the globe by enlarged extraocular muscles, elevated episcleral venous pressure and increased mucopolysaccharide deposition in the trabecular meshwork. Although previous studies have investigated...

Glaucoma patients can monitor and treat their own IOP!

Simerdip Kaur takes a look at the latest ophthalmology-related stories in the news. Headline: Glaucoma patients can monitor and treat their own IOP! It is well known that poorly controlled intraocular pressure (IOP) is a leading risk factor for glaucoma...

Effects of topical anaesthetic on intraocular pressure

This prospective interventional study assessed the effects of repeated intraocular pressure (IOP) using Goldmann applanation tonometry and applanation resonance tonometry in six volunteers. Previous literature supports IOP reduction using repeated applanation tonometry. Repeated IOP measures were taken alternately on 12...

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...

Relationship between nocturnal intraocular pressure elevation and diurnal intraocular pressure level in NTG patients

This group studies Korean normo-tension glaucoma (NTG) patients over a 24-hour period to assess if there was a relationship between nocturnal intraocular pressure (IOP) and diurnal IOP. They have previously suggested differences in diurnal IOP may have varying mechanisms of...

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....

SLT vs. topical treatment with prostaglandin analogues in the management of PACG

Selective laser trabeculoplasty (SLT) has been shown to be useful in the management of primary open angle glaucoma (POAG), but its use in primary angle closure (PAC) / primary angle closure glaucoma (PACG) has yet to be validated. Narayanaswamy et...

Correlation between peak intraocular pressure following water drinking test and pulsed methylprednisolone therapy

Steroids have long been known to cause increased intraocular pressures (IOP) in susceptible patients. Intravenous methylprednisolone is used to treat many rheumatological conditions and one of the risks is raised intraocular pressure. It would be useful to find patients at...

The results of the last survey Aug 2020

Once more I would like to thank those of you who took the time to complete the last edition’s survey. It was highly pertinent to what we are facing now. It is clear that our services have been markedly disrupted....

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....

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,...
