Ophthalmic Timolol Hallucinations: A Case Series and Review of the Literature

Journal of Glaucoma - Thu, 08/31/2017 - 11:00pm
Conclusions: The rarity of this side effect and its anecdotal predilection for elderly, caucasian females with underlying neurological dysfunction, may involve a yet unknown predisposition or hypersensitivity to beta blocker action, such as blood brain barrier disruption leading to increased susceptibility to the medication. This case series highlights an important, although rare, side effect of this medication which clinicians should be aware of especially when using it in elderly patients who may have coexisting CNS pathology. It is important that this side effect be recognized and appropriately managed to prevent otherwise unnecessary investigations and treatment. (Source: Journal of Glaucoma)

Long-term Outcome of Surgical Treatment for Late Intraocular Lens Dislocation Associated With High Intraocular Pressure: A Case Series

Journal of Glaucoma - Thu, 08/31/2017 - 11:00pm
Purpose: To demonstrate the long-term safety and efficacy of transscleral intraocular lens (IOL) fixation combined with an Ahmed glaucoma drainage device implantation for patients with late IOL dislocation and high intraocular pressure (IOP). Methods: This is a retrospective report of a series of patients who underwent this combined surgery. The main outcome variables studied were change in visual acuity (VA), IOP, and number of medications compared with preoperative levels. Surgical failure was defined as a decrease in VA of at least 3 Snellen lines, IOP above 20 mm Hg or IOP reduction (Source: Journal of Glaucoma)

Case Series: Keratolimbal Allograft as a Patch Graft for Glaucoma Drainage Devices

Journal of Glaucoma - Thu, 08/31/2017 - 11:00pm
Conclusions: Two of the 4 eyes experienced tube re-exposure postoperatively at 2 and 3 months, respectively. Both of these cases had a history of prior tube exposure after scleral patch graft and both were tubes placed in the pars plana. Interestingly, the patients with failed grafts were younger with a history of more ocular surgeries as compared with the patients with graft viable eyes. Relevance: Through our case series, we found that the KLAL utilized as a patch graft over GDD tubes has the potential for favorable outcomes in certain subtypes of eyes. Although further large scale investigation will be necessary to better define the risk factors associated with graft failure, proving the graft’s viability is a crucial first step.
