Ab interno trabecular bypass surgery with Schlemm´s canal microstent (Hydrus) for open angle glaucoma. Cochrane Database Syst Rev. 2020 Mar 09;3:CD012740 Authors: Otarola F, Virgili G, Shah A, Hu K, Bunce C, Gazzard G Abstract BACKGROUND: Glaucoma is a leading cause of irreversible blindness. A number of minimally-invasive surgical techniques have been introduced as a treatment to prevent glaucoma from progressing; ab interno trabecular bypass surgery with the Schlemm's canal Hydrus microstent is one of them. OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the efficacy and safety of ab interno trabecular bypass su...

Authors: Ahmad A, Ahsan H Abstract The review article focuses on free radicals and oxidative stress involved in ophthalmological diseases such as retinopathy, cataract, glaucoma, etc. Oxidative stress is considered as a key factor involved in the pathology of many chronic diseases including ophthalmic complication and inflammatory process. Oxidative stress and inflammation are closely related pathophysiological processes and are simultaneously found in many pathological conditions. The free radicals produced oxidize cellular components such as lipids and phospholipids leading to lipid peroxidation and trigger the o...

Authors: Papadopoulos Z Abstract In developed countries, people of advanced age go permanently blind most often due to age-related macular degeneration, while at global level, this disease is the third major cause of blindness, after cataract and glaucoma, according to the World Health Organisation. The number of individuals believed to suffer from the disease throughout the world has been approximated at 50 million. Age-related macular degeneration is classified as non-neovascular (dry, non-exudative) and neovascular (wet, exudative). The exudative form is less common than the non-exudative as it accounts for appr...

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.

Authors: Tang Y, Tan J, Zhou X, Li X Abstract Optic nerve damage and visual impairment caused by glaucoma affect 66.8 million people worldwide, and causing bilateral blindness in 6.7 million people. Surgery is the main method for the treatment of cataract with glaucoma. In recent years, clinicians have increasingly paid attention to and applied phacoemulsification and intraocular lens implantation combined with goniosynechialysis for the treatment of cataract with angle-closure glaucoma. However, for patients with complicated cataract, the high ultrasonic energy of traditional phacoemulsification can largely damage...

ConclusionsMost patients were prescribed multiple antiglaucoma medications, reflecting a large number of potentially inappropriate prescriptions, with anticholinergic drugs, related to the increased intraocular pressure.
