How to evaluate the guidelines of antibiotic reactions in surgeryEye surgeons should use intracameral antibiotics only in select situations; they should avoid aminoglycosides, and they should not use vancomycin as prophylaxis. Michael Jumper, MD, offered this perspective as part of an overview of antibiotics used in intraocular surgery during the Glaucoma Symposium at the 2017 Glaucoma 360 meeting.
Novel drug delivery platforms: Filling a ‘GAP’ in glaucomaMedical therapy for glaucoma is not becoming obsolete, but it is evolving away from conventional topical administration.
Ubiquitous steroid use posing unwitting cause for glaucomaAll corticosteroids matter when it comes to the risk of an intraocular pressure (IOP) response, and that is an important point for ophthalmologists to remember because opportunities for corticosteroid exposure are growing.
Lifestyle modifications may help control glaucoma progressionYvonne Ou, MD, gives patients advice about physical activity, body positions to avoid, leafy green vegetables, caffeine, and blood pressure treatment–as suggestions to help patients control their glaucoma progression.
Home-monitoring devices offer better insight to figure out IOPL. Jay Katz, MD. outlined the benefits of home IOP monitoring. These devices will offer a wealth of information that should lead to increased understanding of glaucoma and better patient care.
End-stage glaucoma requires outside-of-the-box managementAlthough the aim of glaucoma management is to maintain visual function, the role of the ophthalmologist does not end once a patient has lost useful vision. Robert L. Stamper, MD, discussed care for patients with end-stage glaucoma.
Evolution in glaucoma surgery mounting with MIGS proceduresAn expanding armamentarium of minimally invasive and micro-invasive glaucoma surgery procedures is transforming glaucoma management.
Welcome to the 2017 Glaucoma 360Adrienne Graves, PhD, and Andrew Iwach, MD, welcome attendees to Glaucoma 360 with their focus set on next year's conference, February 9, 2018 in San Francisco.
