Abstract AIM: Comparing outcomes after combined phacoemulsification, two iStents insertion and endocyclophotocoagulation (ECP) versus phacoemulsification-iStents alone. METHODS: This is a longitudinal retrospective 12 months study in eyes with ocular hypertension or early-to-moderate open angle glaucoma. Level of disease, intraocular pressure (IOP) and tolerance of glaucoma medication were considered before planning surgery. Best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA-logMAR), IOP (mm Hg), number of medications were assessed at baseline, week 1, week 5, month 3, 6, 12 postop. MAIN OUTCOME: percentage (%) i...

This study aims to evaluate the efficacy and safety of XEN45 gel stent (Allergan plc, Dublin, Ireland) in East Asian patients with glaucoma.MethodsA retrospective study of consecutive XEN45 gel stent implantation surgeries with or without concurrent cataract surgery from May 2017 to August 2018 was performed in a single institution. The clinical charts of all cases were reviewed to examine the safety and efficacy of the implant. Primary outcome measures were intraocular pressure (IOP), number of topical glaucoma medications required, additional procedures done and adverse outcomes. All patients included were required to fu...

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.

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.

Publication date: Available online 15 January 2020Source: Journal of American Association for Pediatric Ophthalmology and StrabismusAuthor(s): Arif O. Khan, James BaconA 56-year-old woman with pseudophakia and glaucoma was referred because of left eye hypotropia and esotropia noted following superotemporal Ahmed glaucoma valve implantation in that eye. Examination suggested left heavy eye syndrome, and it was confirmed the patient had high axial myopia before her cataract surgeries. Both nasal displacement of the left superior rectus muscle and inferior displacement of the left lateral rectus muscle were noted intraoperati...

AbstractPurposeWe investigated the factors that influence the reduction in corneal endothelial cells after Ex-Press® surgery.MethodsThis was a retrospective study. We included patients who had undergone Ex-Press surgery and were followed up for  >  2. We analyzed the corneal endothelial cell density (ECD) before and after Ex-Press surgery. We investigated the insertion position (Ex-Press device was inserted into cornea or trabecular meshwork (TM)), Ex-Press–iris touch, cornea–iris touch, peripheral anterior synechiae, history of trabecu lotomy, history of selective laser trabeculoplasty, ty...

ConclusionAlbrecht von Graefe was founder of modern ophthalmology and separated it from surgery. Graefe ’s contacts, correspondency and meetings at ophthalmological congresses with his teachers, assistants, collegaues also contributed to international co-operation and internationalization in ophthalmology. Although Albrecht von Graefe died before 150 years, he still provokes great admiration and res pect in the world of ophthalmology.

Conclusion A great deal of progress is being made in the matter of treating aging: in advocacy, in funding, in the research and development. It can never be enough, and it can never be fast enough, given the enormous cost in suffering and lost lives. The longevity industry is really only just getting started in the grand scheme of things: it looks vast to those of us who followed the slow, halting progress in aging research that was the state of things a decade or two ago. But it is still tiny compared to the rest of the medical industry, and it remains the case that there is a great deal of work yet to be done at all...
