Severe conjunctival cicatrisation secondary to chronic glaucoma therapy

The timing of glaucoma filteration surgery during the course of chronic progressive glaucoma remains a contentious issue amongst glaucoma specialists. The vast majority support the use of maximal medical treatment initially to achieve the target pressure. Surgical procedures are only...

Risk calculation variability over time in OHT

In this study the authors aimed to assess the variability of the well documented risk model from the Ocular Hypertension Treatment Study (OHTS) that identified higher intraocular pressure (IOP), older age, lower central corneal thickness (CCT), greater vertical cup-to-disc ratio...

Long-term outcome of scleral-sutured posterior chamber intraocular lens

This is a retrospective review of 392 consecutive cases in 349 patients who had scleral-sutured intraocular lens (IOL) due to aphakia, subluxated or luxated IOL, over a 10-year period in one centre from Barcelona. Preop and postop data were collected...

Conjunctival inflammation in glaucoma patients

Numerous studies have demonstrated that topical medications and preservatives used for the management of glaucoma can induce significant histopathologic and inflammatory changes in the ocular surface. This study describes an increased expression of major histocompatibility complex class II antigen HLA-DR,...

Cyclosporine A and pterygium fibroblasts

The matrix metalloproteinases (MMP) are a family of structurally related zinc-dependent extracellular matrix degrading proteinases that have been implicated in facilitating the migration and growth of pterygia. Both MMP- 3 and MMP-13 were found to be overexpressed in the fibroblasts...

Sharing best practice and landmark evidence in glaucoma care

Evolving technology, best practice and landmark evidence in glaucoma care were reviewed by an international expert faculty in session presentations and debates during the 11th Moorfields International Glaucoma Symposium 2019. The authors were meeting chairs and provide an overview of...

Closed-chamber haptic re-externalisation for posteriorly displaced sclerotomy and inadequate haptic tuck in glued posterior chamber intraocular lenses

This technique (online video http://jcrsjournal.org) emphasises the importance of both symmetrical and sufficient anterior placement of sclerotomies to externalise an adequate length of the haptics, which in turn provides good centration and stability of the intra-ocular lens (IOL). The authors...

Ocular mucous membrane pemphigoid: the importance of early detection and treatment

Mucous membrane pemphigoid (MMP) is an autoimmune blistering disorder that is characterised by subepithelial bullae. The ocular manifestation of MMP, ocular mucous membrane pemphigoid (OMMP), is a sight-threatening condition characterised by conjunctival cicatricial changes associated with corneal vascularisation and scarring....

This meeting brought together international speakers to discuss a wide range of topics in Cataract, Corneal and Refractive surgery including FLACS, Premium IOLs, Astigmatism, Refractive surgery and Therapeutics as well as discussions around interesting and challenging cases.

Baerveldt Glaucoma Implant (BGI)

The authors describe surgical outcomes using the BGI and compared the different techniques used. The main differences described in the implantation technique include the use of a prolene stent in the tube, or fixation of the tube to the sclera....

Polymerase chain reaction evaluation of infectious multifocal serpiginoid choroiditis

This paper presents a retrospective review of infectious agents associated with multifocal serpiginous choroiditis (MSC) based on polymerase chain reaction (PCR) evaluation and specific antimicrobial therapy. The study included 13 patients with MSC who were evaluated with PCR for the...
