Conclusions: We estimate that publicly funding MIGS in Ontario would result in additional costs over the next 5 years; however, this may depend on the populations using MIGS and if uptake is restricted or controlled. For the people with glaucoma we spoke with, avoiding blindness was their paramount concern, and MIGS was perceived as an effective treatment option with minimal side effects and recovery time required.

Clare Gilbert, Iris Gordon, Chandoshi Rhea Mukherjee, Vishal GovindhariIndian Journal of Ophthalmology 2020 68(13):63-66 Diabetes mellitus now affects 65 million adults in India, which is likely to increase to over 130 million by 2045. Vision impairment and blindness from diabetic retinopathy (DR) and diabetic macular edema (DME) will increase unless systems and services are put in place to reduce the incidence of DR and DME, and to increase access to diagnosis and effective treatment. In India, sight-threatening DR (STDR) affects 5%–7% of people with diabetes, i.e., 3–4.5 million. This will increase a...

Aggregation of β-crystallin through covalent binding to 1,2-naphthoquinone is rescued by α-crystallin chaperone. J Toxicol Sci. 2020;45(1):37-43 Authors: Shinkai Y, Ding Y, Miura T, Kumagai Y Abstract Cataract induced by exposure to naphthalene is thought to mainly involve its metabolic activation, forming 1,2-naphthoquinone (1,2-NQ), which can modify proteins through chemical modifications. In the present study, we examined the effect of 1,2-NQ on aggregation of crystallins (cry) associated with cataract. Incubation of bovine β-cry with 1,2-NQ caused covalent modification of β-cry...

ConclusionTrabeculectomy 10-10-10 is achievable in the long term, with few complications or repeat surgical interventions in the majority of POAG, PACG, JOAG and secondary glaucomas. Therefore, trabeculectomy should not be relegated to a last resort, but should be undertaken as soon as possible, if medical therapy is inadequate, unaffordable or compliance is an issue.

Abstract Purpose: To evaluate the necessity for second-eye cataract surgery in bilateral highly myopic patients with good visual acuity in the unoperated fellow eye.Materials and Methods: Seventy-five bilateral highly myopic patients who underwent uneventful sequential cataract surgery (the eye with worse visual acuity operated first) were included in this prospective study. The preoperative BCVA of the eye with better visual acuity in these patients was ≤0.3 (logMAR, or Snellen ≥ 20/40). Binocular single vision examinations were performed 1 month after the first-eye and second-eye surgery, respectively. The...
