Eye drop prescription and usage in glaucoma patients

The authors describe a study using a questionnaire to determine how patients use their glaucoma medications to investigate the association between patterns of eye drop prescriptions and medication use. They enrolled 67 Japanese patients who had been prescribed topical anti-glaucoma...

Glaucoma screening in primary care and community settings

Glaucoma is one of the most common causes of irreversible blindness in the United States due to its insidious progression and diagnosis in late stages. The cost-effectiveness of screening for glaucoma has been debated, and screening of high-risk groups for...

Low cost drainage device use in paediatric glaucoma

This is a prospective study from a tertiary referral centre from India of 34 eyes (31 patients) under 16 years with uncontrolled refractory glaucoma with medical treatment. A low cost glaucoma drainage device (GDD) – Aurolab aqueous drainage implant (ADDI),...

Secondary glaucoma post paediatric cataract surgery

This retrospective observational consecutive case series assessed the incidence and risk factors associated with developing glaucoma after paediatric cataract surgery with primary intraocular lens (IOL) implantation. They reviewed 136 children (199 eyes) who underwent paediatric cataract surgery before the age...

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...

Sustained elevation of extracellular ATP in chronic glaucoma

Although adenosine 5′-triphosphate (ATP) release from retinal neurons and astrocytes has been demonstrated in short-term increases in intraocular pressure (IOP); such as in aqueous humor of humans with primary acute angle closure glaucoma, the response in chronic IOP elevation was...

Brn3b neuroprotective effect in rat glaucoma model

An adeno-associated virus-directed overexpression of the Brn3b protein in hypothesised to confer neuroprotective effects in this paper. This is ultimately tested in a well-accepted rat glaucoma model (Morrison’s model: saline injection into episcleral veins of rat eyes with a force...

Reproducible OCT RNFL map in unilateral glaucoma

The aim of the study was to compare the reproducibility of the optical coherence tomography retinal nerve fibre layer (OCT RNFL) thickness map between glaucomatous and fellow normal eyes of unilateral glaucoma patients. The authors carried out a prospective case...

Effect of refractive corneal surgery on IOP and glaucoma progression

Accuracy of intraocular pressure (IOP) measurement depends on the biomechanical properties of the cornea, including its thickness central corneal thickness (CCT) and keratometry (K). Fifty-six eyes of 56 patients with primary open angle glaucoma (POAG) who had a history of...

Use of polypropylene suture with glaucoma drainage tubes

The authors overview surgical techniques for initial non-valved glaucoma drainage device tube placement and a glaucoma drainage device tube extension using polypropylene suture as a guide wire and stabiliser in paediatric patients. The detailed technique for tube placement and tube...

Phaco-ECP vs. Phaco alone to treat glaucoma

This retrospective review compared combined phacoemulsification and endoscopic cyclophotocoagulation (phaco-ECP) to phaco alone in patients with mild to moderate glaucoma. Outcome measures included cumulative full and qualified success survival, postintervention IOP and ocular anti-hypertensive medication reduction. Full success was defined...

Trabeculectomy with MMC in post-traumatic angle recession glaucoma

This study aimed to evaluate the outcomes of primary trabeculectomy with mitomycin-C (trab MMC) in phakic eyes with post-traumatic angle recession glaucoma with no prior intraocular surgery. Thirty-two phakic eyes of 32 patients who underwent trab MMC between January-2002 and...
