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...

Four key questions and answers for glaucoma practitioners

In this discussion paper the authors pose four questions for the clinician diagnosing and monitoring glaucoma, and supply evidence-based answers. Worldwide, the most common functional test used to diagnose and monitor glaucoma is static automated perimetry, most typically with a...

Atlas Optical Coherence Tomography of Macular Diseases and Glaucoma

The book is divided into three sections: an introduction to optical coherence tomography (OCT), the OCT in macular diseases, and glaucoma. The first section lists the currently commercially available OCT machines, then describes the techniques for acquiring OCT images using...

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...

Measurement considerations in OCT results with suspected glaucoma

The purpose of this study was to determine retinal nerve fibre (RNFL) thickness parameters and assess the relationship between the cup-to-disc (CD) ratio and RNFL measurements of paediatric patients who had optic nerve appearance suspicious for glaucoma based on enlarged...

Augmented trabeculectomy with mitomycin C in primary congenital glaucoma

This study aimed to determine success of trabeculectomy augmented with mitomycin C (MMC) in children with primary congenital glaucoma (PCG) and document complications of this intervention. Over a two-year period, the authors treated 74 eyes of 42 children with PCG,...

Possible mechanism for infant development of secondary glaucoma

The authors consider published evidence with regard to potential causative mechanisms for secondary glaucoma that follows infant lensectomy. They review clinical and laboratory studies. The mechanism they propose is that the original lensectomy surgery releases immature anterior lens cells into...

Comparison of methods of central corneal thickness measurement in glaucoma

This prospective study was done to compare the accuracy and reproducibility of central corneal thickness measured by hand-held and disc-mounted ultrasound pachymeter in glaucoma patients. Sixty-five patients were included in the study. Patients with corneal diseases, corneal astigmatism >3 diopters...

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...

Sight Sciences Glaucoma Fellows Academy, Birmingham

Saturday 7 October saw Sight Sciences hold their inaugural UK Glaucoma Fellows Academy training day.

Ocular motility disturbances after glaucoma drainage device

This is a cross-sectional study of children (<17-years-old) with a glaucoma drainage device (GDD) (Ahmed vs Baerveldt) implanted consecutively by a single surgeon from the Toronto group, between September 2006 and May 2018 and who had an ocular motility examination...

How are pigment dispersion syndrome and pigmentary glaucoma inherited?

This single centre prospective, cross-sectional study assessed the relatives of patients with pigment dispersion syndrome (PDS) and pigmentary glaucoma (PG) to determine the heritability of these conditions over an 11 month period. One hundred and one unrelated patients with PDS...
