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...

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...

Glaucoma diagnosis with spectral-domain OCT of GCL and IPL

This is a prospective, cross-sectional, observational study by the New York Eye and Ear Infirmary, which recruited normal subjects and glaucoma patients with a range of visual field loss representing various degrees of glaucomatous optic neuropathy. A total of 69...

Uveitic glaucoma

The purpose of this retrospective study from two tertiary Institutions in Israel over a period of 13 years, is to present the long-term outcomes of uveitic glaucoma and to identify risk factors for progression. The study included 34 patients (53...

Retrograde maculopathy in glaucoma

Macular optical coherence tomography (OCT) analysis can be used for quantitative measures of optic nerve atrophy at a location far away from the optic nerve head. This has recently led to the discovery of microcystic macular oedema (MME), in the...

Retinal blood flow changes in glaucoma

This study examined the changes in retinal blood flow and vessel diameter after IOP reduction in high- and low-pressure glaucoma; exfoliation glaucoma (ExG) and normal-tension glaucoma (NTG). Glaucoma progression is seen at times in eyes despite IOP reduction and changes...

RAPD in glaucoma screening

A study was conducted to investigate the relative afferent pupillary defect (RAPD) by swinging flashlight as a potentially useful screening test for glaucomatous optic neuropathy. The authors recruited 107 subjects with or without glaucoma from a clinic population. A medical...

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...

Comparison of central laminar thickness in optic neuropathy and normal eyes

The study compares central laminar thickness (LT) among patients with glaucomatous optic neuropathy (GON), patients with non-GON and normal subjects. The non-GON group comprised eyes with demyelinating optic neuropathy (ON), anterior ischaemic ON, compressive ON, Leber hereditary ON and traumatic...

Latanoprost in the treatment of congenital glaucoma

The aim of this study was to investigate the glaucoma control of latanoprost therapy in primary congenital glaucoma (PCG) and assess the factors affecting long-term outcome. Eighty-one eyes of 44 patients with PCG and 42 eyes of 29 patients with...

A ciliary body tumour

The authors describe a case report of a 60-year-old woman found to have advanced angle closure glaucoma in her right eye and appositional closure of half of the left eye and no glaucoma. The patient had previously undergone two trabeculectomies...

Visual impairment in patients with glaucoma

This retrospective observational study assessed the prevalence of end-of-life visual impairment in patients with glaucoma. A total of 122 deceased patients followed for glaucoma were included and data was collected from patient notes. Sixty-one patients had open-angle glaucoma and 61...
