Supraciliary Microstent Revision in a Patient With Corneal Edema and Primary Open Angle Glaucoma: A Case Report

A 56-year-old Hispanic male individual with moderate primary open-angle glaucoma on maximal tolerated topical therapy with recent visual field progression presented with excessive glare due to cataract in the right eye. The patient underwent uncomplicated phacoemulsification with supraciliary microstent implantation. Ten weeks postoperatively, he presented with global Descemet folds and focal corneal edema overlying the CyPass implant despite apparent adequate implant position (1 retention ring visible). The revision proved challenging as the anterior chamber portion of the implant was short. Nonetheless, the device was trimmed under gonioscopic view using intraocular lens cutting scissors and a Sinskey hook. Postoperatively, the implant was flush with the iris root with a patent lumen. Bilateral global guttae indicating unrecognized Fuchs endothelial corneal dystrophy diagnosed postoperatively may have contributed to the corneal edema that improved after the revision.

ConclusionsCongenital and hereditary diseases constituted the major causes of low vision in the study population. In contrast to their urban counterparts, the rural children experienced inadequate low-vision rehabilitation. Our findings suggest that policymakers need to better address gender inequalities and urban –rural disparities in low-vision services and that the coverage of low-vision services, especially in rural areas, should be enhanced in China.

Conclusions: DM suturing can reattach DM, especially in moderate to severe, recurrent DMD with fewer postoperative complications and thereby reduce the need for corneal transplantation.

Fuchs uveitis syndrome (FUS) is a chronic, typically unilateral, ocular condition characterized by an asymptomatic mild inflammatory syndrome that can result in cataract and secondary glaucoma. Diagnosis is largely clinical because the etiology remains obscure. FUS is most likely the result of different insults or pathogenic mechanisms, including infections, autoimmune diseases, hereditary and sympathetic dysfunction. According to the infectious theory, the infection of herpes simplex virus, ocular toxoplasmosis, cytomegalovirus, rubella virus, and other viruses have been implicated in the pathogenesis of the disease.

Conclusions: Increased IOP at 2 hours is common after DMEK, but does not seem to influence early endothelial cell survival. One-month ECD was influenced by donor counts and combined cataract surgery.

CONCLUSIONS: Patients with high hyperopia often have ocular comorbidities. Such eyes may be surgically challenging, resulting in reduced benefits from cataract surgery compared to normal eyes. PMID: 29669369 [PubMed - in process]

CONCLUSIONS: Severe and permanent visual loss in uveitis affects people predominantly of working age. It is probably underreported and a restructuring of the certificate of vision impairment may improve data collection. Early referral to a tertiary center may reduce the incidence of vision impairment. PMID: 29543542 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
