Are Disposable and Standard Gonioscopy Lenses Comparable?

Journal of Glaucoma - Fri, 03/31/2017 - 1:20am
Conclusions: We conclude that there is no significant difference in quality of images produced with standard versus disposable gonioscopy lenses. Disposable gonioscopy lenses may be an acceptable alternative to standard reusable lenses, especially in conditions where sterilization is difficult. (Source: Journal of Glaucoma)

Late-onset Hypotony Maculopathy After Trabeculectomy in a Highly Myopic Patient With Juvenile Open-angle Glaucoma

Journal of Glaucoma - Fri, 03/31/2017 - 1:20am
We report on a 34-year-old man with juvenile open-angle glaucoma and high myopia, who developed hypotony maculopathy 14 years after trabeculectomy without bleb leak. This represents the longest known period from trabeculectomy to the development of hypotony maculopathy without bleb leak. The possible mechanisms for the development of late-onset hypotony maculopathy in the highly myopic patient are progressive scleral thinning, reduced scleral rigidity, and scleral morphologic change with aging. These changes might weaken the biomechanical properties of sclera and then contribute to the collapse of the scleral wall during hypotony. This case serves as a reminder that hypotony maculopathy can happen up to 14 years after tabeculectomy even without bleb leak and hypotony should be avoided afte...
