Fourteen patients with advanced open-angle glaucoma were evaluated prospectively by electroretinography and the results were compared with normal controls who were matched for age and sex. All glaucoma patients had visual acuity of 20/50 or better, cup-to-disc ratios of 0.7 or greater in at least one eye, and visual field loss consistent with advanced(More)
We reviewed the records of all inpatients of the UCLA Medical Center from 1955 to 1980 with the discharge diagnosis of "glaucoma." Nine cases of acute angle-closure glaucoma occurring after spinal or general anesthesia were identified among the 913 records reviewed. Of the nine cases, two were bilateral. Seven patients were female and two were male; the(More)
Biometric studies of the ocular dimensions in eyes with narrow anterior chamber angles provide insight into the pathophysiology of pupillary block and may show which eyes are more prone to develop angle-closure glaucoma. We reviewed the records of 56 patients with occludable angles examined between 1980 and 1984. Initial biometric data obtained on the(More)
In a prospective, randomized, double-masked study, 2% epinephrine applied topically twice each day for two weeks to the eyes of patients with glaucoma or ocular hypertension caused an 8.1 +/- 1.4-mm Hg (mean +/- S.E.M.) reduction of intraocular pressure in placebo-treated patients, but only a 1.9 +/- 0.6-mm Hg decrease in patients treated with 25 mg of(More)
PURPOSE To illustrate 3 cases of chronic open-angle glaucoma secondary to the neodymium-yttrium-aluminum-garnet (Nd:YAG) laser vitreolysis procedure for symptomatic vitreous floaters. DESIGN Observational case series. METHODS Location of the study was the Doheny Eye Institute. Three eyes of 2 patients who developed chronic open-angle glaucoma after(More)
Central corneal thickness of four human subjects was monitored by optical pachometry during wear of selected hydrophilic (polymacon) contact lenses of known parameters. Simple algebraic techniques were used to calculate anterior corneal surface oxygen flux using central corneal thickness change as an indication of tear layer oxygen tension.
