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. This article reviews the current body of literature documenting the different pathogeneses, predisposing factors and management of(More)
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)
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 compare retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thickness and diagnostic capability of spectral-domain (CirrusTM) versus time-domain (Stratus®) optical coherence tomography (OCT). METHODS A total of 123 eyes of 123 subjects including 68 normal, 32 glaucoma suspect, and 23 patients with glaucoma were prospectively recruited for the study. All subjects(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 study the change in retinal nerve fibre layer (RNFL) thickness and optic nerve head (ONH) parameters using optical coherence tomography (Stratus OCT 3) after trabeculectomy in adult patients with glaucoma. METHODS A total of 17 patients with glaucoma undergoing trabeculectomy were recruited. Average and quadrant RNFL thickness measurements,(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)
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)
PURPOSE It was the aim of this study to evaluate the prevalence of major depressive disorder (MDD) in chronic glaucoma patients on a topical β-blocker (timolol). DESIGN An observational case control study was performed. METHODS The subjects recruited were divided into 3 groups. Group I included 98 patients with chronic glaucoma on topical β-blocker(More)
