PURPOSE This study evaluates the change in intraocular pressure (IOP) and glaucoma medication requirements after clear corneal phacoemulsification in open angle glaucoma patients, glaucoma suspects, and normal patients at 3 years and last follow-up (mean 5 y). PATIENTS AND METHODS This study represents a retrospective analysis of patients who had clear(More)
PURPOSE To determine the incidence of hypotony and intraocular pressure (IOP) elevation in the immediate and early postoperative period after temporal posterior limbal phacoemulsification and intraocular lens (IOL) implantation. SETTING Ambulatory surgical center. METHODS This prospective analysis comprised 310 eyes that had temporal posterior limbal(More)
PURPOSE To compare the effects of clear corneal phacoemulsification on intraocular pressure (IOP) in patients without glaucoma, glaucoma suspects, and patients with glaucoma. SETTING Urban, multisubspecialty private practice. METHODS A retrospective analysis of patients who had clear corneal phacoemulsification with a minimum of 12 months follow-up was(More)
UNLABELLED To characterize the differences in technique, complications, and outcomes in a large series of cataract extractions in patients with and without pseudoexfoliation (PEX) syndrome. SETTING Ophthalmic Consultants of Boston, Boston, Massachusetts, USA. METHODS A retrospective analysis was performed of 297 cases of cataract extraction in patients(More)
PURPOSE To assess the effect of phacoemulsification with posterior chamber intraocular lens (IOL) implantation performed by a single surgeon on intraocular pressure (IOP) and glaucoma medication requirements in pseudoexfoliation (PFX) eyes with or without glaucoma. SETTING Private practice, Boston, Massachusetts, USA. METHODS This retrospective analysis(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the results of phacoemulsification and intraocular lens (IOL) implantation in eyes with pseudoexfoliation (PEX) and zonular weakness. METHODS Two hundred and ninety-five patients (295 eyes) were recruited. This study is a retrospective case review of 143 PEX eyes with preoperative (Group 1) and intraoperative (Group 2) signs of zonular(More)
PURPOSE To determine the incidence of hypotony or intraocular pressure (IOP) spikes in the early period after clear corneal phacoemulsification in normal and glaucomatous eyes. SETTING Ambulatory surgical center. METHODS This retrospective analysis comprised 112 eyes that had clear corneal phacoemulsification. Postoperative IOP measurements were(More)
PURPOSE To analyze the outcomes of surgery for dislocated intraocular lenses (IOLs) in patients with pseudoexfoliation (PXF). SETTING Private practice, Boston, Massachusetts, USA. DESIGN Retrospective case study. METHODS Eyes with PXF and IOL dislocations that had IOL exchange or repositioning were reviewed. An outcomes analysis compared the surgical(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare the effectiveness of limbus-based and fornix-based conjunctival flaps in fellow eyes of the same patients undergoing combined trabeculectomy with phacoemulsification. DESIGN Prospective, nonrandomized comparative (fellow eye) study. PARTICIPANTS Forty-four patients and 88 fellow eyes. INTERVENTION Limbus-based conjunctival flap(More)
PURPOSE To analyze the intraocular pressure (IOP), glaucoma medication requirements, and visual acuity after glaucoma filtration surgery in pseudophakic eyes. SETTING Private practice, Boston, Massachusetts, USA. METHODS The results of glaucoma filtration surgery in 47 eyes of 40 pseudophakic patients with a minimum follow-up of 1 year were(More)
