Risk factors and untreated POAG

The authors examined 50 untreated open angle glaucoma patients to determine if there was an association between the level of glaucomatous damage and documented risk factors. In this study the authors measured the extent of morphologic and functional glaucomatous damage...

High myopes with POAG and IOP fluctuations

The authors describe a prospective study of 80 eyes of Chinese patients with primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG) on prostaglandin analogues to investigate if those who also have high myopia exhibit greater short-term intraocular pressure (IOP) fluctuations at resting conditions over...

A review of chromosome 9p21 POAG susceptibility locus

Primary open angle glaucoma (POAG) is a genetically complex disease and the overall phenotype is influenced by multiple traits including intraocular pressure (IOP), central corneal thickness and structural features of the optic nerve head. Therefore, genes affecting any of these...

Long-term specular microscopy following Nd: YAG iridotomy in chronic POAG

The aim of this study was to evaluate specular microscopy of chronic primary angle-closure glaucoma (CPACG) eyes at least one year after Nd:YAG iridotomy, and compare them with CPACG eyes without an iridotomy and age-matched, normal eyes. Nd:YAG laser causes...

Retinotopic fMRI reveals visual dysfunction and functional reorganisation in the visual cortex of glaucoma patients

This study investigated the retinotopic functional representation in the visual cortex of mild to moderate primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG) participants and age-matched normal volunteers, using wide-view visual presentation, high-resolution retinotopic stimuli, and high-resolution blood oxygenation level dependent (BOLD) functional magnetic...

Effects of phacoemulsification on IOP and drug use in glaucoma

For patients with comorbid cataract and primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG), guidance is lacking as to whether cataract extraction and traditional filtering surgery should be performed as a staged or combined procedure. Achieving this guidance requires an evidence-based understanding of the...

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...

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...

Refined glaucoma referral practice offers prospect of improved capacity and expanded role for primary eye care professionals

Glaucoma is the most frequent cause of irreversible blindness worldwide and the second leading cause of blindness in the UK [1,2]. The global prevalence of glaucoma in 2010 was approximately 3.5% for people aged 40-80 years, according to Jonas et...

Long-term open angle glaucoma cohort study

This was a study to estimate the development of open angle glaucoma (OAG) in a screened and re-examined elderly group as compared to an unscreened group during the same time period. The participants comprised of 856 individuals born in 1915...

iTrack™ – A different approach to the outflow pathway

Unlike other MIGS which create artificial flow, iTrack™ is a stent-free, tissue-sparing procedure that treats 360° of the conventional outflow pathway to re-establish natural aqueous flow.

Effect of phacoemulsification on trabeculectomy function

Previous studies have reported cataract surgery post trabeculectomy to be detrimental to IOP control. Conversely, other studies have reported phacoemulsification performed before trabeculectomy as a factor for bleb failure. The objective of this retrospective case control study was to evaluate...
