Unilateral Full-Thickness Macular Hole Formation Following Low-Energy Nd: Yag Peripheral Iridotomy

Journal of Glaucoma - Sat, 02/28/2015 - 11:00pm
We report a case of post-YAG peripheral iridotomy macular hole in 1 eye of a patient with preexisting vitreomacular adhesion in that eye. Possibly because of the vitreomacular adhesion, a single-shot low-energy YAG laser shot resulted in macular hole formation. (Source: Journal of Glaucoma)

Functional Pituitary Tumors Masquerading as Primary Glaucoma and Effect of Hypophysectomy on Intraocular Tension

Journal of Glaucoma - Sat, 02/28/2015 - 11:00pm
We report 2 bilateral cases that presented as primary ocular hypertension and primary angle-closure glaucoma, respectively; however, they were subsequently discovered to be harboring secretory pituitary tumors. After transsphenoidal tumor resection, intraocular pressures (IOPs) in all 4 eyes returned to normal levels. Sudden rise in IOP then again served as a primary manifestation of relapse in the second patient with growth hormone secreting pituitary tumor. It was not found feasible for resurgery; thus, patient needed trabeculectomy in both eyes to achieve an optimum control of intraocular tension. We conclude that pituitary adenomas may mimic primary glaucoma without producing vertical hemianopia and cause a reversible rise in IOP. Furthermore, a careful ongoing expert ophthalmologic as...

Influence of a New Software Version of the RTVue-100 Optical Coherence Tomograph on Ganglion Cell Complex Segmentation in Various Forms of Age-Related Macular Degeneration

Journal of Glaucoma - Sat, 02/28/2015 - 11:00pm
Conclusions: For nonglaucomatous AMD eyes the frequency of GCC segmentation errors was significantly reduced, GLV was significantly lower (more normal), and the classification for glaucoma was more correct with software version 6.12 than with version 6.3. (Source: Journal of Glaucoma)

Reproducibility of Spectral-Domain Optical Coherence Tomography RNFL Map for Glaucomatous and Fellow Normal Eyes in Unilateral Glaucoma

Journal of Glaucoma - Sat, 02/28/2015 - 11:00pm
Purpose: To compare the reproducibility of the optical coherence tomography (OCT) retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thickness map between glaucomatous and fellow normal eyes of unilateral glaucoma patients. Methods: In this prospective case-control study, Cirrus HD-OCT was performed for 79 unilateral glaucoma patients 3 times on the first visit and on 3 subsequent visits within a 2-month period. Test-retest standard deviation (TRT-SD) and tolerance limit based on the 1.645×√2×TRT-SD formula were derived for RNFL thicknesses at the respective superpixels of the RNFL thickness map. Results: The TRT-SDs and tolerance limits of the glaucomatous eyes (TRT-SD: 2.75 to 20.25 μm; tolerance limits: 6.40 and 47.11 μm) were significantly smaller than those of the fellow normal eyes (TRT-SD: 2.73...

Postiridotomy Ultrasound Biomicroscopy Features in the Fellow Eye of Chinese Patients with Acute Primary Angle-Closure and Chronic Primary Angle-Closure Glaucoma

Journal of Glaucoma - Sat, 02/28/2015 - 11:00pm
Purpose: To compare the features of postiridotomy ultrasound biomicroscopy (UBM) in Chinese patients with acute primary angle-closure (aPAC) and with chronic primary angle-closure (cPAC) glaucoma. Patients and Methods: Consecutive cases were classified into acute and chronic groups. The acute group included 77 patients with unilateral aPAC. The chronic group included 57 patients with unilateral advanced cPAC glaucoma. In both the groups, the patients’ fellow eye underwent a laser iridotomy and was studied. The main outcome measures included qualitative UBM parameters such as a plateau iris, anterior iris insertion, and an anteriorly rotated ciliary process and quantitative UBM parameters such as central anterior chamber depth (ACD), basal iris thickness (IT500), and scleral ciliary proce...

Risk Factors for Developing Glaucoma Among Patients With Uveitis: A Nationwide Study in Taiwan

Journal of Glaucoma - Sat, 02/28/2015 - 11:00pm
Conclusions: The development of glaucoma in uveitis patients is noteworthy and is associated with several demographic and clinical factors. To minimize the visual impairment caused by uveitis-related glaucoma, clinicians should pay more attention to those uveitis patients who are at high risk for developing glaucoma.

The Effect of Systemic Erythropoietin Treatment on Retinal Nerve Fiber Layer Parameters in Patients With Chronic Renal Failure Undergoing Peritoneal Dialysis

Journal of Glaucoma - Sat, 02/28/2015 - 11:00pm
Conclusions: In patients with CRF undergoing PD, RNFL thickness parameters were found to be significantly reduced. The effect of EPO on RNFL parameters was statistically significant only in the temporal quadrant. (Source: Journal of Glaucoma)
