  • 04/01/2014 - 12:41 TOPICAL ISSUE Glaucoma, 2014, April Generic eye drops should not be considered identical to branded versions due to differences in composition and possibly efficacy.
  • 04/01/2014 - 11:53 CONTRACEPTIVES AND GLAUCOMA Glaucoma, 2014, April Women who have taken oral contraceptives for three or more years are twice as likely to also report a diagnosis of glaucoma, according to research presented at the 2013 Annual Meeting of the American Academy of Ophthalmology in New Orleans.
  • 04/01/2014 - 11:42 ANGLE CLOSURE Glaucoma, 2014, April Angle-closure glaucoma accounts for a relatively low proportion of glaucoma cases occurring in Europe and worldwide, but a high proportion of patients become bilaterally blind from the condition despite the availability of effective treatment, John Thygesen MD told a session of the Glaucoma Day of the XXXI Congress of the ESCRS in Amsterdam.
  • 03/03/2014 - 12:11 TRABECULECTOMY PROCEDURES Glaucoma, Mar, 2014 There are measures that can be taken at every step of surgery that will help insure the best possible outcome from trabeculectomy procedures and avoid many common complications, according to Philippe Denis MD, Hopital de la Croix-Rousse, Lyon, France.
  • 01/24/2014 - 15:24 TONOMETRY UPDATE Feb, Glaucoma, 2014 The Goldmann applanation tonometer (GAT) remains the gold-standard in tonometry, but newer devices are currently available or are under development that may help provide a more accurate picture of the effect of IOP-lowering therapy in eyes with glaucoma, said Michele Iester MD, PhD, associated professor of the University of Genoa, Genoa, Italy.
  • 01/24/2014 - 14:51 IOP SENSOR Feb, Glaucoma, 2014 Studies conducted so far with a noninvasive contact lens-based system (TriggerfishR, Sensimed) designed to provide continuous IOP-related monitoring demonstrate it is safe, welltolerated and reproducibly records 24-hour patterns.

  • 01/24/2014 - 14:37 FLUID PRESSURE Feb, Glaucoma, 2014 Evidence is accumulating that, rather than the intraocular pressure (IOP) itself, it is the impact of a pressure imbalance between IOP and cerebrospinal fluid pressure on the lamina cribrosa, in favour of IOP, that makes the optic nerve more vulnerable to damage in eyes with open-angle glaucoma, said Jost B Jonas MD, University Eye Clinic, Mannheim, Germany.
