PRēCIS:: Phacotrabeculectomy with adjunctive Mitomycin C is a good option for the management of coexisting cataract and glaucoma. Strict pre-operative control of inflammation and close follow-up are essential in the management of eyes with uveitic glaucoma. PURPOSE: To compare the outcomes of phacotrabeculectomy with adjunctive antimetabolites in the management of patients with uveitic glaucoma (UG) and patients with primary open angle glaucoma (POAG). METHODS: A retrospective case-control study of one hundred and twelve patients with UG and one hundred and twenty patients with POAG who underwent phacotrabeculectomy with Mitomycin C and had a follow-up of ≥12 months, between January 2000 and June 2015 was performed...

PRéCIS:: Repeated use of the Micropulse MP3 probe during micropulse transscleral cyclophotocoagulation is associated with an increase in laser output over time. PURPOSE: Examine the laser efficacy of the MP3 probe following repeated use. METHODS: Observational study carried out using Cyclo G6 Glaucoma Laser System with 6 MP3 laser delivery probes. Each probe was fired for 100 seconds, every 10 minutes until the probe was deactivated. The laser output was measured using a laser power meter...

PRECIS: A teleglaucoma case finding model was employed in Ethiopia using a higher-risk case identification approach. 7.9% of patients had definite glaucoma. 13.8% were glaucoma suspects. Most cases could be managed medically. BACKGROUND: To analyze disease prevalence and clinical referral pathways of high-risk patients assessed through a hospital-based teleglaucoma case finding program. METHODS: Patients over age 35 were referred from outpatient diabetic & hypertensive clinics...

PRéCIS:: A larger proportion of iStent inject microstents than suggested by gonioscopic examination could be entirely burrowed within the trabeculum (45.7%). The length of device protrusion within the anterior chamber is linked to post-operative intraocular pressure. INTRODUCTION: The iStent inject® (Glaukos Corporation, CA, USA) is a relatively new device designed to be implanted ab-interno through the trabecular meshwork. While some preliminary studies have shown intraocular pressure (IOP) lowering potential, the full extent of the mechanisms through which IOP is reduced remains unconfirmed...

PRECIS: In this retrospective case series of 85 eyes, 31.8% developed graft failure and graft survival was 50% at 3 years. The presence of an aqueous shunt has a significantly adverse effect on long-term graft survival. PURPOSE: To report visual outcomes and complications of Descemet stripping endothelial keratoplasty (DSEK) in eyes with glaucoma drainage devices (GDD). METHODS: A retrospective chart review was conducted of 122 procedures of 85 eyes of 83 patients that underwent DSEK and had prior or concurrent GDD implantation...

PRéCIS:: Eyes with glaucoma have tauter optic nerves compared with normal eyes, which may exert more force on the optic nerve head tissues during eye movements. PURPOSE: To assess the difference in optic nerve tortuosity during eye movements and globe proptosis between primary open angle glaucoma and normal subjects using orbital magnetic resonance imaging. METHODS: 10 Chinese subjects matched for ethnicity and refractive errors were recruited, including five normal controls and five patients with primary open angle glaucoma...

PRECIS: This prospective cross-sectional study found that patients with cognitive impairment are more likely to produce unreliable visual field tests, especially with higher false negative responses and consequent overestimation of mean deviation. AIM: Aging-associated cognitive impairment (CI) can impair the ability of individuals to perform a visual field test and compromise the reliability of the results. We evaluated the association between neurocognitive impairment and visual field reliability indices in glaucoma patients METHODS:: This prospective, cross-sectional study was conducted in the Ophthalmology Department, Hospital Kuala Pilah, Malaysia and included 113 eyes of 60 glaucoma patients with no prior diagnosis of dementia...

PRECIS: A modified closure for trabeculectomy in which the conjunctiva is incised posterior to the limbus and re-approximated using 2 nylon sutures, provided similar surgical outcomes to the standard trabeculectomy closure technique. PURPOSE: To examine the surgical outcomes of a modified trabeculectomy closure technique in which the conjunctiva is incised posterior to the limbus and re-approximated using two sutures, burying the posterior conjunctiva under an anterior lip of conjunctiva...

BACKGROUND: Phacomatosis pigmentovascularis has previously almost exclusively been reported in Asians and in dermatological journals. In this report, we present a case of a young black South African male referred to our eye clinic. CASE PRESENTATION: A 15-year-old male patient presented with gradual, painless loss of vision in his right eye. Clinical examination revealed a port wine stain with ocular involvement on the right as well as a nevus of Ota. Fundoscopy on the right revealed an advanced glaucomatous optic disc and raised intra-ocular pressure...

PRéCIS:: A 15-year analysis of 198,843 visual field tests revealed a growing trend for their performance for non-glaucoma indications. Adherence to glaucoma management guidelines was suboptimal. Guidelines for referral to visual field assessments should be established. PURPOSE: To identify trends in visual field (VF) assessments over 15 years among patients with and without suspected or confirmed glaucoma, in a large healthcare maintenance organization (HMO). METHODS: A population-based retrospective cohort study, conducted by means of electronic medical database analyses...

PURPOSE: To characterize reductions in intraocular pressure (IOP) and the need for IOP-lowering medications following phacoemulsification combined with Kahook Dual Blade (KDB)-assisted goniosynechialysis and excisional goniotomy in eyes with angle-closure glaucoma and cataract. METHODS: In this retrospective, interventional case series, preoperative, operative, and postoperative data were collected through 6 months of follow-up from 42 eyes of 24 subjects. Outcomes included mean IOP reduction, reduction in IOP-lowering medications, and the proportion of patients achieving IOP reduction≥20%, IOP ≤18▒mmHg, and reduction of≥1 medication...

PRECIS: We checked 190 tonometers every month and repaired faulty ones. Calibration error (CE) frequency reduced from 23% to 0.6% at one-year. Tonometers needing one or >1 CE repair differed in survival but not in age. PURPOSE: To report the outcomes of a comprehensive program to maintain calibration status of Goldmann applanation tonometer (GAT) METHODS:: This prospective cohort study was carried out at two tertiary eye care referral centers. We included 190 slit-lamp mounted GATs (Model AT 900 C/M; Haag-Streit, Switzerland)...

PRECIS: Glaucoma suspect was the most prevalent category in this study followed by glaucoma associated with acquired ocular anomaly and juvenile open-angle glaucoma. Primary congenital glaucoma was diagnosed in only 3% of the population studied. PURPOSE: To describe the prevalence and clinical characteristics of childhood glaucoma diagnosed over a 10-year period among patients ≤18 years of age who were seen at a tertiary care children's hospital using the new Childhood Glaucoma Research Network (CGRN) classification system...

PRéCIS:: Optic nerve head perfusion was not significantly altered in subjects with normal tension glaucoma nor healthy individuals after performing the water drinking test, due to its limited effect on ocular perfusion pressure. PURPOSE: Optic nerve head (ONH) blood flow can be maintained stable in healthy individuals because of a physiological phenomenon called autoregulation. Impairment of autoregulation has been shown especially under condition of normal tension glaucoma (NTG). The purpose of this study was to investigate the ONH blood flow autoregulation in patients with NTG by influencing the ocular perfusion pressure with the water drinking test...
