Patients who experience IOP-lowering with micropulse transscleral cyclophotocoagulation are likely to have success with a second treatment, a study explains.
Researchers say disc hemorrhage is an independent predictor of faster vessel density loss in patients with primary open angle glaucoma.
Even without a MIGS device, surgery-naive patients who underwent phaco-ECP can experience an IOP drop of 26%, a report suggests.
Combining peripheral kinetic visual field testing with central static perimetry improves early glaucomatous detection.
For patients with glaucoma and retinovascular disease, those who received 7 or more intravitreal injections after glaucoma surgery had improved rates of success, a study shows.
The two device types demonstrated equal reductions in IOP and medication use.
More than half of patients who used the drug exhibited statistically significant overall and clinically meaningful IOP reductions.
While the combined approach does reduce intraocular pressures, circadian rhythm cannot be changed by the surgery.
Elevated IOP refractory to medical therapy was the most common postoperative complication for both nonvalved and valved tube shunt surgeries.
A case study shows the effect of a capsule revision after failed valved aqueous implant andconcurrent placement of a nonvalved implant.
People with glaucoma and preserved central vision still had more difficulty reading than similarly aged controls.
The progression was especially noticeable in glaucoma suspects and patients with mild glaucoma.
Patients with glaucoma and lower baseline densities appeared to experience a faster rate of RNFL loss.
Three decades of data show support for a combined trabeculotomy-trabeculectomy approach.
Researchers describe a method for determining binocular visual fields early glaucoma.
Axial length could affect the IOP reduction achievable with the procedure.
The technologies compare patients with a built-in internal normative database.
Standardizing these criteria may aid in both clinical research and to supplement subjective clinical assessments.
Other factors, such as heritage and diagnosis status, were more predictive of the need for an invasive procedure.
While standard automated perimetry testing performed better than OCT, the diagnostic capability can be improved using a structure–function analysis.
