Glaucoma

PSLT shows promise in lowering intraocular pressure Compared with SLT, PSLT appears to offer some advantages, such as a shorter duration of treatment and more comfort for patients.
Toric, presbyopia-correcting IOLs good options for glaucoma patientsSteven Vold, MD, reports that toric IOLs provide an accurate, safe, and convenient way to correct astigmatism and uncorrected distance vision for glaucoma patients, while patients wanting presbyopic correction have IOL options to fit a range of visual needs.
No strategies exist to lower glaucoma risk; healthy habits offer starting pointAlthough there are no scientifically proven ways to prevent glaucoma, healthy habits–such as moderate exercise, regular visual check-ups, and eating green, leafy vegetables–represent a good starting point for a prevention strategy.
SLT valuable tool in individualized approach for glaucoma managementWhen customizing treatment plans for glaucoma patients, selective laser trabeculoplasty (SLT) can be as useful in diagnosis as it is in reducing IOP, explains Inder Paul Singh, MD, FEBOphth.
New glaucoma therapy offers first drug option in years
Glaucoma experiences transformative growth as a subspecialtyAfter decades of slow, but steady, progress in the advancement of glaucoma as a subspecialty, the last quarter century has seen tremendous innovation in this field.
Glaucoma management can play important role with premium IOLs
Ocular perfusion pressure, cerebrospinal fluid pressure: New players in glaucoma
The hyphema that keeps on givingPersistent bleeding in a glaucoma patient with neovascular glaucoma after metastatic renal carcinoma requires a range of surgical methods to treat.
Managing glaucoma with OCTAOptical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) is a new imaging technique that has the potential to move rapidly into routine clinical practice. OCTA comprises different OCT-based technologies, which enable the non-invasive assessment of retinal perfusion, based on red blood cell movement in the optic nerve head, the peripapillary and the macular retina.
