BACKGROUND Trabeculectomy is performed as a treatment for glaucoma to lower the intraocular pressure (IOP). Mitomycin C (MMC) is an antimetabolite used during the initial stages of a trabeculectomy to prevent excessive postoperative scarring and thus reduce the risk of failure. OBJECTIVES To assess the effects of intraoperative MMC compared to placebo in(More)
AIM The aim of this study was to assess the repeatability and reproducibility by physicians of upper lid measurements and to investigate the influence of clinical experience on the learning curve effect. METHODS Both eyes of 22 outpatients were assessed for three basic measures of ptosis: marginal reflex distance (MRD) for upper and lower lids, upper lid(More)
Purpose.To study the effect of trabeculectomy and monotherapy with topical betaxolol, brimonidine and latanoprost on intraocular pressure (IOP) and pulsatile ocular blood flow (POBF) in patients with normal-pressure glaucoma (NPG). Methods.In this retrospective study NPG patients attending the glaucoma research unit at Moorfields Eye Hospital were reviewed.(More)
PURPOSE To test the hypothesis of a major genetic determinant of intraocular pressure (IOP) under the mixed genetic model in a defined population, and to elucidate the relationship between IOP and glaucoma. METHODS IOP was measured in 3654 persons attending the Blue Mountains Eye Study. A commingling analysis on IOP was performed using a new program,(More)
