PURPOSE OF REVIEW To review the current ophthalmic literature regarding the impact of modern cataract surgery on intraocular pressure (IOP). RECENT FINDINGS Many articles in the literature demonstrate a modest, long-lasting decrease in IOP following phacoemulsification and posterior chamber intraocular lens implantation in patients with primary open-angle(More)
PURPOSE OF REVIEW To review the current literature with regard to the importance of IOP fluctuation/variation as independent risk factors for glaucoma progression. RECENT FINDINGS There are conflicting reports in the literature assessing the relative importance of 'intraocular pressure (IOP) fluctuation' and 'mean IOP' as risk factors for glaucoma(More)
PURPOSE OF REVIEW To summarize the effects of cataract surgery on the management of glaucoma, in terms of the effect on both the intraocular pressure (IOP) and postoperative diagnostic as well as therapeutic considerations. RECENT FINDINGS Recent evidence corroborates prior data demonstrating significant and sustained IOP reduction after cataract(More)
Glaucoma care is more an art than science. The introduction of several new classes of glaucoma medications and the completion of many large randomized clinical trials have not changed this fact. While we now have better choices when initiating glaucoma therapy relative to our predecessors, the principles of glaucoma therapy have not changed much during this(More)
PURPOSE We previously described a group of patients of Chinese ancestry who presented with optic nerve appearance and visual field loss suggestive of glaucoma but did not show progression characteristic of this disease for up to 7 years. The purpose of this study was to assess whether axial length is a risk factor for visual field loss in patients(More)
PURPOSE OF REVIEW Patients considering corneal refractive surgery undergo extensive preoperative testing, but current protocols may not address the management of glaucoma appropriately. This review outlines the current body of literature on the diagnostic and management challenges that exist in the treatment of glaucoma patients undergoing laser ablative(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the effect of partially attached posterior vitreous detachments (pPVDs) at the optic disc on retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thickness as measured by optical coherence tomography. METHODS A retrospective study was conducted using stored Stratus optical coherence tomography III scans of patients with suspected glaucoma from January(More)
Glaucoma comprises a group of progressive, neurodegenerative disorders characterized by retinal ganglion cell death and nerve fiber layer atrophy. Several randomized controlled trials have consistently demonstrated the efficacy of intraocular pressure lowering to slow or halt the measurable progression of the disease. Medical therapy, in places where it is(More)
CASE PrESEntAtiOn A 79-year-old Hispanic man was referred to the Montefiore Medical Center Glaucoma Service in Bronx, New York, for uncontrolled IOP on maximal tolerated medical therapy bilaterally. Medical therapy included dorzolamide (Trusopt; Merck & Co., Inc), brimonidine 0.2%, pilocarpine 2%, and latanoprost (Xalatan; Pfizer, Inc). The patient had(More)
