Comparison of false-negative responses in glaucoma patients and normal observers

The authors compared false negative rates for full threshold (FULL) and Swedish Interactive Threshold Algorithm (SITA) standard automated perimetry in healthy control subjects and glaucoma patients. Twenty-four subjects underwent visual field testing of one eye five times within six weeks...

Fundamentals of Glaucoma: A guide for Ophthalmic Nurse Practitioners, Optometrists and Orthoptists

As multidisciplinary teams continue to develop and evolve, there is a growing demand for accessible literature in glaucoma. This handbook gives a useful overview of classification in glaucoma, examination techniques and investigations, treatments and providing a holistic approach to patient...

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,...

Ologen Collagen Matrix to treat ocular hypotony after filtration glaucoma surgery

The authors report a retrospective, observational case series of a Japanese cohort. 12 consecutive implantations of ologen in nine eyes of nine subjects (five men, four women; mean age ±SD, 72.1±12.7 years) who underwent subconjunctival implantation of the device to...

Comparison of ganglion cell thinning in glaucoma vs. macular hole repair

This prospective study compared the changes in the photopic negative response of the focal macular electroretinogram (fmERG) caused by retinal ganglion cell complex (GCC) thinning at the macula between patients with open angle glaucoma (OAG) and 12 months after successful...

Impact of medical vs. surgical treatment on quality of life in glaucoma patients

The author recruited 225 patients across two sites and divided them into three groups. Group 1 medical treatment only, Group 2 surgical treatment only, Group 3 mixed medical and surgical (patients still on drops after surgery). They then used a...

Improved efficacy expected with second-generation microinvasive glaucoma surgery (MIGS) devices

Microinvasive surgical approaches to primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG) offer minimally traumatic options for effective intraocular pressure (IOP) reduction in appropriately selected glaucoma patients. Increases in laser trabeculoplasty rates and wider adoption of glaucoma drainage device filtration procedures, together with the...

Micropulse vs. continuous wave trans scleral diode cyclophotocoagulation in refractory glaucoma

Continuous wave cyclophotocoagulation (CWCPC) delivers continuous high intensity energy to the ciliary body in an attempt to reduce aqueous secretion and hence lower IOP. It is often used as a treatment of last resort due to the potential side-effects of...

Long scleral tunnel technique to prevent tube exposure of Ahmed glaucoma valve

This retrospective study was done to evaluate the efficacy of long scleral tunnel technique and compare it with pericardium patch graft in preventing tube exposure of Ahmed glaucoma valve. Seventy-eight eyes of 73 patients were included. In group 1 patients,...

Lens surgery in patients with lens subluxation misdiagnosed as primary angle-closure glaucoma

Lens subluxation can be caused by many conditions including Marfan syndrome and other hereditary conditions, and blunt trauma. Lens displacement can cause pupillary block and angle closure. This is commonly misdiagnosed as primary angle closure glaucoma (PACG), which can lead...

A closer look at the new wave of glaucoma surgery – radical or old school?

Glaucoma is a challenging condition to treat because the exact pathophysiology remains unclear and the only readily modifiable factor is the intraocular pressure (IOP). Additionally, most glaucoma patients are completely asymptomatic, yet are often subjected to lifelong medical therapy. The...

Cytomegalovirus retinitis post intravitreal triamcinolone in an immunocompetent patient with juvenile glaucoma

Figure 1: Fundus photograph shows active CMV retinitis four weeks after IVTA in the right eye. Figure 2: Fundus photograph of the left eye with no CMV retinitis; atrophic disc as a result of juvenile glaucoma. Case report A 29-year-old...
