BACKGROUND To analyze the results of repeat selective laser trabeculoplasty (SLT). METHODS INCLUSION CRITERIA participants with primary or secondary open-angle glaucoma (excluding uveitic) who had undergone SLT 360° (SLT 1) with diminution of response over time followed by repeat SLT 360° (SLT 2). Six months of follow-up were required and at least 6(More)
BACKGROUND Silicone oil has been an important adjunct for internal tamponade in the treatment of complicated retinal detachment for the past 4 decades. A known complication of its use has been the development of secondary glaucoma. METHODS This article reviews the current body of literature documenting the different pathogeneses, predisposing factors and(More)
BACKGROUND To report the safety and efficacy of Ex-PRESS(TM) miniature glaucoma implant under a scleral flap in patients with previous ocular surgeries. DESIGN Retrospective, non-comparative case series from a tertiary care hospital. PARTICIPANTS Patients with previous cataract or failed glaucoma surgeries who had undergone implantation of the(More)
Ultrasound biomicroscopy (UBM) is a high-resolution ultrasound technique that allows noninvasive in vivo imaging of structural details of the anterior ocular segment at near light microscopic resolution and provides detailed assessment of anterior segment structures, including those obscured by normal anatomic and pathologic relations. We summarize UBM(More)
PURPOSE To determine if postoperative topical cyclosporine 0.05% has any beneficial effect following trabeculectomy. METHODS This was an interventional, randomized, prospective, double-masked clinical trial of 44 consecutive patients with uncontrolled glaucoma requiring filtration surgery. Ocular surface disease index questionnaire and comprehensive(More)
Glaucoma following penetrating keratoplasty remains a challenge for the treating ophthalmologist. Its frequent occurrence, difficult diagnosis and recalcitrant nature coupled with the propensity to cause irreversible visual loss makes it essential to identify the problem early and manage it effectively. A careful pre-operative assessment along with(More)
Numerous surgical procedures have been proposed for cyclodialysis cleft repair. The authors describe a novel technique of cyclopexy with posterior infusion cannula in a patient with persistent hypotony and maculopathy secondary to a large cyclodialysis cleft after trauma.
PURPOSE To assess the success of needling in failed filtration blebs and the potential benefit of using either 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) or mitomycin C (MMC). METHODS In this retrospective, comparative observational case series, 107 eyes that underwent needle revision with either 5-FU or MMC between July 2003 and May 2008 at Wills Eye Institute were selected.(More)
PURPOSE To determine the structure-function correlation using frequency-doubling technology (FDT) perimetry and optical coherence tomography (OCT) in glaucoma suspects, and analyze their relationship to optic disc size. METHODS Sixty eyes of 60 ocular hypertensive patients (OHT) and 54 eyes of 54 subjects with optic disc features suspicious of glaucoma(More)
Recent research has shown that a large number of growth factors are responsible for neovascularization. Vascular endothelial growth factor has been identified as playing a key role in ocular angiogenesis. Bevacizumab, a humanized monoclonal antibody that binds to all isoforms of vascular endothelial growth factor, has shown promising results in regression(More)
