PURPOSE To establish the reproducibility of a rebound tonometer in humans and the effect of corneal thickness on measurements, comparing it with Goldmann applanation tonometer. METHODS In a first study designed to examine the reliability of the RBT, three experienced ophthalmologists undertook three consecutive intraocular pressure (IOP) measurements in(More)
Ultrasound biomicroscopy is a useful technique for anterior segment evaluation; however, examination of the pars plana and the peripheral retina is difficult. We describe a method that facilitates ultrasound biomicroscopic examination of these areas using using a modified swimming goggle(orbital cup) and an eyelid speculum. With this method, not only the(More)
BACKGROUND Glaucoma can be associated with an increase in the occurrence of ocular surface disease (OSD) symptoms. The objective of this study was to examine the prevalence of ocular surface complaints in patients with glaucoma who used topical intraocular pressure (IOP)-lowering therapies. METHODS In this multicenter, international, noninterventional(More)
PURPOSE To establish correlations between intraocular pressure (IOP) measurements obtained with the ocular response analyzer (ORA) and the Goldmann applanation tonometer (GAT). The effects of central corneal thickness on the measures obtained were also examined. METHODS This was a cross-sectional study. IOP was determined in 48 eyes of 48 patients with(More)
PURPOSE To assess the capacity of internal retinal layer thickness measurements made at the macula using new spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (OCT) software to distinguish between healthy subjects and those with suspected glaucoma. The diagnostic performance of such measurements also was compared with that of conventional peripapillary retinal(More)
PURPOSE To assess the course of intraocular pressure (IOP), visual field progression, and adverse effects of antiglaucoma medication used during pregnancy. METHODS Thirteen eyes of eight patients with glaucoma were examined. Their clinical records were reviewed to compare IOP, number of medications, and visual field indices (VFI) before, during, and after(More)
PURPOSE To examine the reproducibility of the new digital Goldmann applanation tonometer AT 900D (DGT) for measuring intraocular pressure and to compare its readings with those provided by the conventional analog Goldmann tonometer (AGT). METHODS In 3 different sessions (S1, S2, and S3), 3 intraocular pressure measurements were made in 15 eyes of 15(More)
Current management of glaucoma entails the medical, laser, or surgical reduction of intraocular pressure (IOP) to a predetermined level of target IOP, which is commensurate with either stability or delayed progression of visual loss. In the published literature, the hypothesis is often made that IOP control implies a single IOP measurement over time.(More)
Purpose. To evaluate the long-term efficacy and safety of the iStent inject device (Glaukos Corporation, Laguna Hills, CA) combined with phacoemulsification in patients with coexistent cataract and open-angle glaucoma or ocular hypertension (OHT). Methods. A prospective, uncontrolled, nonrandomized, interventional case series study was conducted in patients(More)
