This article is a review of studies relating to glaucoma in pregnancy. It also examines medical, laser, and surgical options specific to the particular needs of this population.Recent FindingsIn general, there is limited data on management of glaucoma in pregnancy, and no guidelines for treatment have been established. In one recent case series, pregnant women exposed to glaucoma medications were found to have no difference in pregnancy or fetal/neonatal outcomes compared with a control group. There are no available data for the use of the newer intraocular pressure (IOP) lowering agents (latanoprostene bunod, netarsudil) ...

CONCLUSION: Inpatient consultations is very useful to the patient and managing physician. Although a better knowledge in the identification of common ophthalmic conditions can help to reduce the number of inpatient consults from other medical specialties. PMID: 32476114 [PubMed - in process]

Conclusions: The results suggest that some of the associations identified in POAG risk loci can be ascribed to rare coding variants with likely functional effects that modify POAG risk. PMID: 32476818 [PubMed - in process]

Abstract OBJECTIVE: Obstructive sleep apnea syndrome has been identified as a possible risk factor for optic nerve pathology such as glaucoma, nonarteritic ischemic optic neuropathy, and optic disk edema. Accordingly, we aimed to evaluate structural changes of the apparently normal optic nerve in obstructive sleep apnea syndrome patients with effects of its severity. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In this prospective case-control study, 47 eyes of 47 obstructive sleep apnea syndrome patients diagnosed with polysomnography and 40 eyes of 40 healthy subjects were included. Spectral-domain optical coherence tomography w...

Does anyone have any strong opinions on using either Topcon (Maestro 2 being the newest model) vs. Zeiss Cirrus (6000 being the latest model) as a tool for OCT RNFL/GC analysis and monitoring for progression? The Maestro has the convenient feature of a fundus camera built in. I'm curious if anyone has been happy with their Topcon as a tool in their management of glaucoma and specifically if there are any advantages or disadvantages compared to Cirrus.

Electrical stimulation (ES) by peripheral (transpalpebral/transorbital/transcorneal) approach seems to currently be one of the most promising rehabilitative techniques, which are aimed at the restoration of the visual function in low vision (LV) patients affected by degenerative diseases. The non-invasiveness of this methodology and its many positive effects on multiple retinal cell targets have led to the use of ES in patients with ischemic optic neuritis, traumatic optic nerve lesions, retinitis pigmentosa (RP), cone-rod dystrophy, Best disease, Stargardt disease, retinal vascular occlusions, glaucoma, and dry and wet ag...

AbstractObjectiveThis prospective study aimed to compare the surgical outcomes of ab externo 240-degree trabeculotomy and trabeculotomy –trabeculectomy in managing primary congenital glaucoma (PCG).Patients and methodsThe study included 30 eyes of 30 patients aged less than 3 years who were diagnosed with PCG and was conducted in Menofia University Hospital between November 2018 and January 2020. The studied eyes were divided into two equal groups. Ab externo 240-degree trabeculotomy and combined trabeculotomy with trabeculectomy with MMC were performed for groups I and II, respectively. Post-operative measurements i...
