Management of phacolytic glaucoma: experience of 135 cases. (1/3147)

We retrospectively analyzed 135 eyes with phacolytic glaucoma. A trabeculectomy was added to standard cataract surgery if symptoms endured for more than seven days, or if preoperative control of intraocular pressure (IOP) with maximal medical treatment was inadequate. In the early postoperative period, IOP was significantly lower in the combined surgery group (89 eyes) compared to the cataract surgery group (46 eyes) (p < 0.001). At 6 months there was no difference in IOP or visual acuity between the two groups. There were no serious complications related to trabeculectomy. It is reasonable to conclude that in eyes with a long duration of phacolytic glaucoma, addition of a trabeculectomy to cataract surgery is safe, prevents postoperative rise in intraocular pressure and decreases the need for systemic hypotensive medications. A randomized trial is on to further address this question.  (+info)

Rapid pneumatic and Mackey-Marg applanation tonometry to evaluate the postural effect on intraocular pressure. (2/3147)

A postural study was conducted in three separate groups of subjects. The first group comprised 20 women volunteers with an average age of 20-75 years.

In these two groups, the study was conducted using the PTG and the Mackay-Marg tonometer. Clinical evaluation of the Mackay-Marg with the PTG gave significant correlation, with mean Mackay-Marg readings being 1-13 mmHg higher. The intraocular pressure when changing from seated to the supine position increased on average by 2-71 and 4-04 mmHg, respectively in Groups 2 and 3 and by 2-51 and 3-72 mmHg by Vackay-Marg, suggesting a higher change in glaucomatous subjects. Pressure on resumption of sitting was found to be lower than the initial pressure. Postural change also showed some direct relationship with age in non-glaucomatous subjects.  (+info)

Asymmetry in optic disc parameters: the Blue Mountains Eye Study. (3/3147)

PURPOSE: To examine asymmetry in vertical optic disc parameters among subjects classified as normal, as having ocular hypertension (OH), and as having open-angle glaucoma (OAG) in a population-based sample. METHODS: The Blue Mountains Eye Study examined 3654 people aged 49 to 97 years, including 2929 normal subjects, 118 with OH, and 79 with OAG in the groups of interest for the asymmetry study. Optic disc parameters were measured in a masked manner from stereo optic disc photographs. RESULTS: Vertical disc diameter asymmetry (the absolute value of left minus right disc diameters) was similar among normal, OH, and OAG groups (median, 0.07-0.08 mm). Vertical cup- disc ratio asymmetry was higher in patients with OAG (median, 0.11) than in normal subjects (median, 0.06; P < 0.0001) and in those with OH (median, 0.05; P < 0.0001) but was similar between normal subjects and patients with OH (P = 0.17). A cup- disc ratio asymmetry of 0.2 or more was found in 24% of patients with OAG, compared with 1% of patients with OH and 6% of normal subjects. Corresponding rates for cup- disc ratio asymmetry of 0.3 or more in these three groups were 10%, 0%, and 1%, respectively. Using multiple linear regression, cup-disc ratio asymmetry was associated with disc diameter asymmetry and intraocular pressure asymmetry. However, these two factors explained only 3% of the variability of cup- disc ratio asymmetry and 20% of cup diameter asymmetry. CONCLUSIONS: Despite differences between the OAG group and either the OH or normal groups, asymmetry alone was not useful in identifying patients with OAG. At all levels of asymmetry, subjects were more likely to be classified as normal than with OH or OAG.  (+info)

Apoptosis and caspases after ischemia-reperfusion injury in rat retina. (4/3147)

PURPOSE: Extensive cell loss in the retinal ganglion cell layer (RGCL) and the inner nuclear layer (INL) was noted in a rat model of retinal ischemia-reperfusion injury by transient elevated intraocular pressure (IOP). The possible involvement of apoptosis and caspases was examined in this model of neuronal loss. METHODS: Transient elevated IOP was induced in albino Lewis rats through the insertion of a needle into the anterior chamber connected to a saline column. Elevated IOP at 110 mm Hg was maintained for 60 minutes. Groups of animals were euthanatized at various times after reperfusion, and their retinas were evaluated by morphology, agarose gel electrophoresis of DNA, in situ terminal deoxynucleotidyl transferase-mediated biotin-deoxyuridine triphosphate nick-end labeling (TUNEL), immunohistochemistry of caspases II (ICH1) and III (CPP32), and morphometry. YVAD.CMK, a tetrapeptide inhibitor of caspases, was used to examine the involvement of caspases. RESULTS: A marked ladder pattern in retinal DNA gel analysis, typical of internucleosomal DNA fragmentation and characteristic of apoptosis, was present 12 and 18 hours after reperfusion. Labeling of nuclei in the RGCL and the inner nuclear layer (INL) by TUNEL was noted between 8 and 18 hours after reperfusion. Histologic and ultrastructural features typical of apoptosis were also observed in the inner retina after ischemia. YVAD.CMK administered during the ischemic period inhibited apoptotic fragmentation of retinal DNA and ameliorated the tissue damage. When administered intravitreally 0, 2, or 4 hours after reperfusion, YVAD.CMK was also effective in preserving the inner retina but had no significant effect when administered 6 or 8 hours after reperfusion. The inner retina showed transient elevated immunoreactivity of caspases II and III 4 and 8 hours after reperfusion. CONCLUSIONS: Retinal ischemia-reperfusion after transient elevated IOP induced apoptosis of cells in the retinal ganglion cell layer and the INL. Caspases may have a pivotal role in the early events of the apoptotic pathway(s). Rescue by using anti-apoptotic agents after ischemia-reperfusion is feasible.  (+info)

Mechanism of exercise-induced ocular hypotension. (5/3147)

PURPOSE: Although acute dynamic exercise reduces intraocular pressure (IOP), the factors that provoke this response remain ill-defined. To determine whether changes in colloid osmotic pressure (COP) cause the IOP changes during exercise, standardized exercise was performed after dehydration and hydration with isosmotic fluid. METHODS: Progressive cycle ergometer exercise to volitional exhaustion was performed after 4 hours' dehydration, and after hydration with 946 ml isosmotic liquid (345 mOsM). In each experiment, venous blood taken before and immediately after exercise was analyzed for hematocrit, plasma protein concentration, total plasma osmolality, and plasma COP. RESULTS: Exercise in both experiments significantly reduced IOP and elevated COP (each P < 0.01). Dehydration, compared with hydration, also significantly reduced IOP and elevated COP, when measured before and after exercise (P < 0.05). The correlation of mean IOP with mean COP, over the entire range created by varying exercise and hydration statuses, was statistically significant (r = -0.99; P < 0.001). In contrast, other indexes of hydration status, including hematocrit, total plasma osmolality, and plasma protein concentration, failed to change as IOP changed and failed to correlate with IOP, on either a group or individual basis, in conditions of varying levels of exercise and hydration. CONCLUSIONS: Acute dynamic exercise and isosmotic fluid ingestion each seem to change IOP through changes in COP.  (+info)

A pharmacoeconomic analysis of rimexolone for the treatment of ophthalmic inflammatory conditions. (6/3147)

Topical steroids are the standard first-line therapy for treating ophthalmic inflammatory conditions. However, potent ophthalmic steroids can lead to an elevation of intraocular pressure (IOP), which can result in greater medical resource utilization and increased costs. We have developed a decision analysis model from a societal perspective to evaluate the costs and consequences of the treatment of ophthalmic inflammatory conditions with two potent topical steroids: prednisolone and rimexolone. Data for the model are based on information from clinical trials, national data-bases, published literature, and responses by ophthalmologists to a questionnaire on treatment patterns for elevated IOP. Three steroid-responsive conditions are examined separately with the model: uveitis; postoperative inflammation following cataract surgery; and other ophthalmic inflammatory conditions (blepharitis, episcleritis, postoperative refractive surgery, and corneal transplant). The model evaluates patients with acute conditions versus those with chronic conditions and those with mild to moderate elevation of IOP versus those with severe elevation of IOP. Although the unit cost of rimexolone is higher than that of prednisolone, use of rimexolone leads to cost savings because the incidence of elevated IOP is decreased. If rimexolone is used instead of prednisolone for the treatment of ophthalmic inflammatory conditions, the estimated cost saved (at 1995 AWP prices) is approximately $10 million across the entire US population. The savings across the health maintenance organization population on an annualized basis is approximately $3.9 million. Even if rimexolone were priced higher than current market charges (at 130% to 150% of the AWP of prednisolone), cost savings ranging from the $2.9 million to $720,000 would accrue with use of rimexolone compared with prednisolone. However if, rimexolone were priced at 160% of the AWP of prednisolone, its use would incur an additional cost of $300,000. The primary medical resource utilized in treating elevated IOP in ophthalmic inflammatory conditions is physician visits. Medications are responsible for only one-fifth to one-third of the total cost of treating elevated IOP. This analysis indicates that rimexolone is associated with decreased medical resource utilization and cost savings to the entire healthcare system.  (+info)

Retrospective analysis of risk factors for late presentation of chronic glaucoma. (7/3147)

BACKGROUND: Why some individuals present to the ophthalmologist in the early stages of chronic glaucoma but others present with very advanced visual field loss is a question which has received little attention. This study is an attempt to identify some basic characteristics of people who present with late glaucoma. METHODS: A retrospective case-control study by medical record review was employed. 100 cases and 100 controls were identified from the notes of patients presenting to Moorfields Eye Hospital glaucoma service between July 1993 and July 1995. Cases were defined as new patients presenting with absolute field loss within five degrees of fixation and a cup to disc ratio of greater than 0.8 in one or both eyes. Controls were new patients with no absolute field loss within 20 degrees in either eye, but otherwise typical glaucomatous field loss and a cup to disc ratio of greater than 0.5 or a difference of 0.2 or more between the discs. RESULTS: The ethnic origin, sex, referral source, presenting IOP, and age of the subjects studied were independently associated with late presentation. An African Caribbean patient is estimated to be four and a half times more likely to attend with advanced field loss than a white patient of similar age, sex, IOP, and referral source (adj OR: 4.55, 95% CI [1.57, 13.18]). A female patient is estimated to be one third (0.34, [0.15, 0.74]) as likely to attend late than a male patient of the similar age, IOP, ethnic origin, and referral source. A patient referred via any source other than an optometrist with the correct diagnosis is estimated to be greater than four times (4.32 [1.89, 9.88]) more likely to be a late attender than a patient of the same sex, ethnicity, and similar age but referred with a diagnosis of glaucoma. There was a trend of increasing odds of late presentation with increasing age (adj OR per 10 years, baseline 40-49 years 1.68 [1.22, 2.20]). A patient whose presenting IOP is 21-25 mm Hg is estimated to be a quarter (0.24, [0.09, 0.64]) as likely to attend with advanced field loss than a patient of the same ethnic origin, sex, age, referral source, but with presenting IOP of greater than 31 mm Hg. CONCLUSIONS: These data strongly suggest that certain subgroups of patients with glaucoma are likely to be at greater risk of presenting with advanced and irremediable field loss.  (+info)

Immediate intraocular pressure response to selective laser trabeculoplasty. (8/3147)

BACKGROUND/AIMS: Selective laser trabeculoplasty targets the pigmented trabecular meshwork cells without damage to the trabecular meshwork architecture in vitro. A study was conducted in vivo of eight eyes with uncontrolled open angle glaucoma to ascertain the immediate intraocular response to selective laser trabeculoplasty. METHODS: The trabecular meshwork of each eye was treated 360 degrees with a frequency doubled Q-switched Nd:YAG laser. Intraocular pressure was measured 1, 2, 24 hours and 1, 4, 6 weeks after treatment. RESULTS: The average preoperative intraocular pressure was 26.6 (SD 7) mm Hg (range 18-37). Two hours and 6 weeks respectively after selective trabeculoplasty intraocular pressure was reduced in all the eyes treated with an average fall of 10.6 (5.2) mm Hg or 39.9%. A pressure spike of 10 mm Hg verified in one eye 1 hour after treatment. CONCLUSIONS: Selective laser trabeculoplasty decreased intraocular pressure by an amount similar to that achieved with standard trabeculoplasty. Additional study is needed to determine whether the beneficial effect is sustained over a longer period of follow up.  (+info)

TY - JOUR. T1 - The effects of acute intraocular pressure elevation on rat retinal glutamate transport. AU - Holcombe, David J.. AU - Lengefeld, Nadia. AU - Gole, Glen A.. AU - Barnett, Nigel L.. PY - 2008/6/1. Y1 - 2008/6/1. N2 - Purpose: To investigate the relationship between intraocular pressure (IOP), retinal glutamate transport and retinal hypoxia during acute IOP elevations of varying magnitude. Methods: Female Dark Agouti rats were anaesthetized by ketamine/xylazine/ acepromazine (10/5/0.5 mg/kg i.p.). The anterior chamber was cannulated with a 30-gauge needle attached to a saline reservoir. The target IOP (20-120 mmHg, in 10 mmHg increments) was obtained by adjusting the reservoir height. After 10 mins of IOP stabilization, 2 μl of the non-endogenous glutamate transporter substrate, D-aspartate, was injected into the vitreous (final concentration 50 μm), and the elevated IOP maintained for a further 60 mins (total duration of IOP elevation was 70 mins). Glutamate transporter function ...
A study has been made of the time courses of the pupillary and intraocular pressure responses of conscious rabbits to clonidine administered either topically or intravenously. Topical unilateral application of clonidine caused transient pupil dilatation and a biphasic intraocular pressure response; an initial hypertensive response preceded a hypotensive phase lasting several hours. Pupillary and hypertensive responses were absent in the untreated eye, but there was a rapid decrease of intraocular pressure. Intravenous administration of clonidine caused an immediate and large decrease of intraocular pressure in both eyes. Phenoxybenzamine given intravenously inhibited the pupillary dilatation and the hypertensive responses to clonidine. The role of efferent adrenergic neuronal activity in mediating the local biphasic pressure response was studied in rabbits with unilateral precervical and postcervical sympathotomy. The results showed the hypotensive response to be dependent on an intact ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Intraocular pressure elevation in uveitis. AU - Md. Din, Norshamsiah. AU - Mohd Isa, Hazlita. AU - Taylor, Simon R J. AU - Barton, Keith. AU - Lightman, Susan L.. PY - 2012/2. Y1 - 2012/2. N2 - Raised intraocular pressure in uveitis, either due to the disease itself or secondary to treatment with steroids, is one of the most common causes of secondary glaucoma in clinical practice. There are currently no standardized criteria for the diagnosis nor guidelines for the management of raised intraocular pressure in uveitis. Intraocular pressure elevation may be due to any combination of several mechanisms and, as a result, the prognosis differs from primary glaucomas. In addition, the management of ongoing inflammation without elevating the intraocular pressure remains a challenge. Ideally, new anti-inflammatory agents should have better anti-inflammatory properties with safer intraocular pressure profiles, while sustained release medications to lower intraocular pressure would ...
I would like to congratulate Theelen et al for their recent article on impact factors on intraocular pressure measurements in healthy subjects,1 and I would like to add a thought. As Theelen and colleagues point out with reference to the literature,2,3 increased pressure in the jugular vein leads to increased brain pressure, and by an increase in the episcleral venous pressure, to an elevation of intraocular pressure. Correspondingly, in a previous study by Teng and associates, it was discussed that a tight necktie may increase intraocular pressure by an increased jugular vein pressure and could affect the diagnosis and management of glaucoma.4 It may be taken into account, however, that the brain pressure and pressure in the cerebrospinal fluid space surrounding the retrobulbar part of the optic nerve are the counter-pressure against the intraocular pressure across the lamina cribrosa.5 If the cerebrospinal fluid space pressure is elevated (as a result of increased jugular vein pressure), the ...
Purpose. To describe the distribution of ocular perfusion pressure and its relationship with open-angle glaucoma (OAG) in a Malay population. Methods. This was a population-based, cross-sectional study comprising 3280 (78.7% response) ethnic Malays. Intraocular pressure (IOP) was measured with Goldmann applanation tonometry. Systolic and diastolic blood pressure (SBP and DBP) was measured with a digital automatic blood pressure monitor. Mean ocular perfusion pressure (MOPP) = 2/3(mean arterial pressure - IOP), where mean arterial pressure (MAP) = DBP + 1/3(SBP - DBP), systolic perfusion pressure (SPP) = SBP - IOP, and diastolic perfusion pressure (DPP) = DBP - IOP, was calculated. The diagnosis of OAG was based on International Society for Geographical and Epidemiologic Ophthalmology criteria. Results. A total of 3261 persons (mean age, 58.7 ±11 years, including 131 [4.0%] cases of OAG) were available for analyses. Among persons without glaucoma, the mean ± SD IOP, MOPP, SPP, and DPP were 15.3 ...
Out of a total of 2272 diurnal curves (DC) of intraocular pressure (IOP) obtained from 1178 patients 690 first curves of the right eye of all patients were analysed. For each DC there were 4-6 IOP readings taken between 8 am and 6.30 pm of the same day. The patients diagnosis, age, sex, type of IOP lowering medication, diabetes, and the calendar month of the year were recorded. In 40% of cases the highest IOP was found at the earliest morning measurement with some 65% of peaks occurring before noon. The lowest IOP measurement showed no specific predilection for any particular time of the day. These findings were true for all diagnosis groups. The mean range of IOP fluctuation during the DC was 5.0 mm Hg in normals, 5.8 mm Hg in patients with open angle glaucoma (OAG), and 6.8 mm Hg in patients with ocular hypertension (OHT). Patients treated with timolol had a lower mean IOP fluctuation range than those on other types of IOP lowering treatment. No association was found between all other ...
BioAssay record AID 1342678 submitted by ChEMBL: Reduction in intraocular pressure in monkey assessed as maximal change in intraocular pressure at 0.1% administered topically to one eye immediately after first intraocular pressure reading by pneumatonometry.
Purpose : Glaucoma and cataract are two leading causes of vision impairment worldwide. Previous studies report a long-term decrease in intraocular pressure (IOP) after cataract surgery in patients with and without glaucoma. Higher preoperative IOPs have been reported to predict a greater drop in IOP postoperatively. However, past literature lacks a consensus about the precise timing of postoperative IOP reduction and has yet to show other significant factors that may affect IOP reduction. Our study examines the timing of IOP reduction following cataract extraction (CE) and additional patient-related variables that may contribute to this postoperative IOP-lowering effect of CE. Methods : Retrospective chart review data was collected from 101 patients with primary open angle glaucoma, ocular hypertension, or normal-tension glaucoma, who had CE in one or both eyes (140 total eyes). IOP was analyzed at 1, 3, 6, and 12 months after CE. Preoperative IOP, effect of time after CE, body mass index (BMI), ...
Abstract: Purpose: To determine whether corneal hysteresis and central corneal thickness are independent risk factors for glaucoma.Design: This was a cross-sectional population based cohort study.Methods: Associations were tested between corneal hysteresis, measured in 1754 population-based subjects from the TwinsUK cohort, and glaucoma-related endophenotypes, including intraocular pressure (IOP), vertical cup to disc ratio, optic disc area and optic disc cup area. Corneal hysteresis, IOP and Central Corneal Thickness (CCT) were measured using the Ocular Response Analyser (ORA-Reichert® Buffalo, NY). Optic disc photographs were analysed using the Stereo DX program. Multivariable linear regression analysis was performed using STATA software.Results: Data was available (Read more...)

Glaucoma, a progressive optic neuropathy due to retinal ganglion cell (RGC) degeneration, is one of the leading causes of irreversible blindness. Although glaucoma is often associated with elevated intraocular pressure (IOP), IOP elevation is not detected in a significant subset of glaucomas, such as normal tension glaucoma (NTG). Moreover, in some glaucoma patients, significant IOP reduction does not prevent progression of the disease. Thus, understanding IOP-independent mechanisms of RGC loss is important. Here, we show that mice deficient in the glutamate transporters GLAST or EAAC1 demonstrate spontaneous RGC and optic nerve degeneration without elevated IOP. In GLAST-deficient mice, the glutathione level in Müller glia was decreased; administration of glutamate receptor blocker prevented RGC loss. In EAAC1-deficient mice, RGCs were more vulnerable to oxidative stress. These findings suggest that glutamate transporters are necessary both to prevent excitotoxic retinal damage and to ...

In recent years, one of the hot topics in glaucoma research has been the effect of IOP fluctuation on POAG. Although more and more studies have confirmed that a decrease in the mean IOP level can reduce the risk of developing POAG, the findings from major prospective clinical trials about the impact of IOP fluctuation on POAG remain controversial [25, 27-30]. In this paper, we analyzed the post-randomization IOPs from OHTS and EGPS taking a latent class analysis (LCA) approach. The LCA allows us to identify distinct patterns of IOP change over time and then associates the changes in IOP with the risk of POAG. The results from both studies showed that different patterns of IOP change could markedly affect the risk of POAG (irrespective of their baseline, pre-randomization IOP levels). In OHTS, the change in IOP was best described by 6 distinct patterns. The model identified a subset of participants in whom IOP variability also played an important role in predicting POAG. This subgroup showed the ...

Glaucoma of the eye, which is often interpreted as elevated intraocular pressure, is a disease that is one of the leading causes of blindness in the world. This is a condition in which normal flow of aqueous water through the eye is disrupted, and then eye swells. This is what causes high levels of intraocular pressure within the eye, damaging the optic nerve at the same time and leads to the collapse of the visual field, and finally to loss of vision ...
Besides optic disc evaluation and visual field testing, the diagnosis of ocular hypertension, primary glaucoma and normal-tension glaucoma is based on an arbitrary IOP cutoff point of 21 mmHg [11]. This cutoff is made on the basis of statistical grounds, principally for screening purpose rather than as a diagnostic criterion. It is nevertheless in clinical use and any factor that changes the estimates of IOP can lead to a misclassification of the patient or predisposed individuals [12].. In this study it was found that the mean CCT and IOP among Ethiopian glaucoma patients were 508.07 μm and 19.46 mmHg respectively. This study also showed a statistically significant association between CCT and IOP. Furthermore, CCT was correlated linearly with IOP values (ρ =0.271, p , 0.001). In this study IOP was manipulated with surgery or medication in some, and not in others, and hence this result should be interpreted cautiously as correlation between baseline untreated IOPs and CCT is much more ...

Crucially, IOP is not fixed, but varies considerably during the 24-h cycle and between one visit and another. Consequently, a single IOP measurement during so-called office hours is insufficient to characterize the real IOP pathology of a patient with glaucoma. To date IOP remains the principal and only modifiable risk factor for the development and progression of glaucoma. Only by evaluating IOP characteristics (mean, peak and ...
Glaucoma is a damage of the optic nerve caused by intraocular pressure. It is one of the main causes of blindness worldwide. The damage is most frequently caused by elevated intraocular pressure, but low pressure and normal pressure glaucoma are also known. In these conditions, the optic nerve is damaged in spite of low intraocular pressure. Damage to the optic nerve caused by glaucoma is irreversible. Early diagnosis and treatment are therefore crucial.. Symptoms. The main symptom of glaucoma is the deterioration of the visual field. Patients will typically be unaware of these until an advanced stage. A visual field test helps to detect a deterioration of the visual field at an early stage allowing early treatment.. In rare cases, elevated intraocular pressure can lead to blurry vision, irritated or red eyes, headaches, and a sensation of pressure in the ocular region or the head.. In most cases, however, glaucoma does not cause any discomfort. This is particularly dangerous as it can prevent ...

A method of lowering intraocular pressure (IOP) employs an upregulating agent that induces increased prostaglandin synthesis in the eye. The method of treatment entails administering to the eye of a mammal in need thereof a prostaglandin upregulating agent to increase endogenous prostaglandin synthesis and thereby effect a reduction in intraocular pressure. In a preferred embodiment the upregulating agent is IL-1.

Glaucoma is a disease that affects the eyes. Characteristic of glaucoma is the increase intraocular pressure and damages the optic nerve. Glaucoma drops vision and can lead to complete blindness. If the vision was lost as a result of the disease (glaucoma), it is possible to help the patient it is impossible, as the optic nerve died. Those who have been already diagnosed with this condition, it is not necessary to wear sunglasses, drink atropine - since this can all raise the intraocular pressure..

The diagnosis of glaucoma has changed over the years. Historically, any intraocular pressure above 21 mmHg was considered to be the definition of glaucoma. Today, it is clear that an elevated intraocular pressure is just a risk factor for glaucoma. An elevated intraocular pressure may be seen in normal patients and a low intraocular pressure may be seen in glaucoma patients.. The Visual Field Test is currently the gold standard for evaluating the status and progression of glaucoma. It evaluates the peripheral vision by having patients respond each time they see a projected light in the peripheral visual field. Both the diagnosis and the evaluation of progression of glaucoma can be made with this test.. The OCT-HD Nerve Fiber Analysis is the latest technology for evaluating the status of the optic nerve. It directly measures the thickness of the nerve fiber layer emerging from the optic nerve. It is thought that this instrument may help to catch glaucoma years earlier, before vision loss actually ...
The effects of ethanol on intraocular pressure, blood pressure, and the BP/IOP ratio and a comparison of a semi-automated sphygmomanometer with a conventional sphygmomanometer
With the increasing number of people participating in physical aerobic exercise, jogging in particular, we considered that it would be worth knowing if there are should be limits to the exercise with regard to the intraocular pressure (IOP) of the eyes. The purpose of this study is to check IOP in healthy and primary glaucoma patients after aerobic exercise. 145 individuals were subdivided into seven groups: normotensives who exercised regularly (Group A); normotensives in whose right eye (RE) timolol maleate 0.5% (Group B), latanoprost 0.005% (Group C), or brimonidine tartrate 0.2% (Group D) was instilled; and primary glaucoma patients under monotherapy with β-blockers (Group E), prostaglandin analogues (Group F) or combined antiglaucoma treatment (Group G) instilled in both eyes. The IOP of both eyes was measured before and after exercise. A statistically significant decrease was found in IOP during jogging. The aerobic exercise reduces the IOP in those eyes where a b-blocker, a prostaglandin
Elevated intraocular pressure (IOP) is the best recognized risk factor for the pathogenesis of glaucoma and the extent of retinal ganglion cell (RGC) degeneration in glaucoma is closely correlated with the extent of IOP elevation. Therefore, accurately and reliably measuring IOP is critical in investigating the mechanism of pressure-induced RGC damage in glaucoma. However, IOP is typically measured under general anesthesia in most studies using mouse models and many anesthetics affect the IOP measurements in both human and animals. Continue reading Effect of General Anesthetics on IOP in Elevated IOP Mouse Model. ...
A decrease of optic disc cupping is more likely with a greater IOP reduction and a lower final IOP, and an increase of cupping is more likely with less or no IOP reduction and a higher final IOP.
PITTSBURGH (Sept. 22, 2020) - Diabetic patients monitor their blood glucose throughout the day, watching for peaks and valleys. Just taking a sample once during a visit to the doctors office would not give a clear picture of whether the patients diabetes is under control. The same is true of glaucoma patients, whose intraocular pressure (IOP), or pressure within the eye, is too high. IOP varies throughout the day, but there isnt yet an easy way to monitor changes at home that would provide proven, reliable readings, making it difficult for doctors to monitor the effectiveness of treatment.. Piervincenzo Rizzo, PhD, professor of civil and environmental engineering at the University of Pittsburghs Swanson School of Engineering, is leading a project that will help glaucoma patients monitor their intraocular pressure (IOP) at home, giving them and their doctors a clearer picture of eye health. The project recently received $1,099,984 from the National Science Foundation. The proposed device ...
Helpful, trusted answers from doctors: Dr. Chang on can you tell me the relationship between inter ocular pressure and sugar level: Blood sugar can cause retinopathy (damage to the retina) and increased near sightedness but does not affect ocular pressure.
The term glaucoma, refers to a group of disorders that cause damage to the optic nerve of the eye. The optic nerve can be thought of as the connecting cable which links the eye to the brain. Once that cable or optic nerve is severely damaged, (and the damage is irreversible), blindness can result.. Glaucoma blinds an estimated 60,000 people each year worldwide. Over 3 million Americans carry the diagnosis of glaucoma and it is estimated that an additional 2-3 million Americans are at risk.. Screening for glaucoma consists of a comprehensive eye examination including intraocular pressure measurement, optic disc examination and visual field testing where indicated.. People at greatest risk to develop glaucoma include people over age 50 with elevated intraocular pressure, African-americans, and people with affected family members.. Treatment for glaucoma includes topical and oral medications, and laser and incisional surgery. The overwhelming majority of patients found to have glaucoma can be ...
Attention all optometrists and ophthalmologists- theres a new tool in town, and its called the Diaton Tonometer. Diatons tonometer is an easy-to-use and accurate instrument for measuring intraocular pressure (IOP) through the eyelid, which makes it simple to diagnose patients with glaucoma during the early stages, so that immediate treatment and medicines can be administered. This transpalpebral tonometer is handheld, pen-like and no-contact, which provides absolutely no risk of infection....

Ciba Vision, The Eye Care Unit Of Novartis, Announced Today That The U.S. Food And Drug Administration (FDA) Has Approved Rescula® (Unoprostone Isopropyl Ophthalmic Solution) 0.15%, A New Synthetic Docosanoid Compound For The Treatment Of Open-Angle Glaucoma Or Ocular Hypertension. Rescula differs from other anti-glaucoma drugs in that it is the only available ocular therapy containing a docosanoid. Rescula consistently and safely lowers intraocular pressure (IOP) when used as either a monotherapy or in combination with other drugs, and IOP reduction is maintained at a constant level throughout the day. In clinical studies Rescula shows no loss of efficacy over 12 months. With this approval, we are now able to provide doctors with a major new building block in glaucoma treatment, said Dan Myers, president of CIBA Visions North American Ophthalmics group. Research shows that unlike non- cardioselective beta blockers, Rescula safely lowers intraocular pressure without affecting cardiovascular ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Simultaneous management of blood flow and IOP in glaucoma. AU - Harris, Alon. AU - Jonescu-Cuypers, Christian. AU - Martin, Bruce. AU - Kagemann, Larry. AU - Zalish, Miriam. AU - Garzozi, Hannah J.. PY - 2001. Y1 - 2001. N2 - Factors other than intraocular pressure (IOP) elevation must be involved in initiation and progression of glaucoma. An additional element in disease causation may be ischemia in the retina and optic nerve head. Ischemic damage to neurons in the CNS is similar mechanistically and histopathologically to changes seen in glaucoma. Further, glaucoma patients with normal IOP show clear evidence for cerebral and ocular ischemia. Aging and atherosclerosis reduce the ability of the eye to autoregulate blood flow when ocular perfusion pressure changes: the dependence of blood flow on perfusion pressure links ischemia to IOP. Consequently, neuroprotective treatments for glaucoma should be designed to both reduce IOP and improve ocular nutrient delivery.. AB - Factors ...
Purpose: to compare the rebound tonometer ICare® (RT) with the Goldmann applanation tonometer (GAT) in cataract surgery and to assess the influence of central corneal thickness (CCT) on intraocular pressure (IOP) measurements. Design: retrospective, comparative study. Methods: a total of 472 patients underwent IOP measurement using RT (time 0 = RTa). GAT IOP measurement was performed 5 minutes later, followed by a second RT IOP measurement after other 5 minutes (RTa + 10 min = RTb). CCT was obtained by ultrasound pachymetry. In 106 patients IOP was measured by means of RT and GAT before clear corneal cataract surgery (RT1 and GAT1) and at one day postoperatively (RT2 and GAT2). Results: RT IOP values > 5 mmHg were overestimated, while RT IOP values < 15 mmHg were underestimated. Every 100 μm of CCT an increase of 0.97 mmHg and 0.33 mmHg was found for RT and GAT respectively. The difference between RT1 and RT2, GAT1 and GAT2, RT1 and GAT1 was not statistically significant; while the difference between

A multiple logistic regression analysis was performed in order to determine whether intraocular pressure is an independent determinant for leukoaraiosis.ResultsThe ...
Glaucoma is the second most common cause of legal blindness in the United States. Open-angle glaucoma is an asymptomatic, progressive optic neuropathy characterized by enlarging optic disc cupping and visual field loss. Patients at increased risk for open-angle glaucoma include blacks older than 40 years, whites older than 65 years, and persons with a family history of glaucoma or a personal history of diabetes or severe myopia. Elevated intraocular pressure is a strong, modifiable risk factor for open-angle glaucoma, but it is not diagnostic. Some patients with glaucoma have normal intraocular pressure (i.e., normal-pressure glaucoma), and many patients with elevated intraocular pressure do not have glaucoma (i.e., glaucoma suspects). Routine measurement of intraocular pressure by primary care physicians to screen patients for glaucoma is not recommended. Open-angle glaucoma usually is discovered during an adult eye evaluation performed for other indications. Final diagnosis and treatment occur in

Purpose: To study intraocular pressure (IOP) trends and risk factors of IOP elevation after intravitreal anti-vascular endothelial growth factor injections in diabetic macular edema. Methods: A retrospective review of 760 eyes treated with intravitreal anti-vascular endothelial growth factor injections for diabetic macular edema was performed. The rate and risk factors of IOP elevation were assessed. Intraocular pressure elevation was defined as an increase above baseline IOP by ≥6 mmHg, increase above baseline by ,20%, or IOP elevation to ,24 mmHg on 2 or more consecutive visits after treatment. When more than one pretreatment IOP reading was available, baseline IOP was calculated as the mean of the available pretreatment IOP readings (up to a maximum of three last IOP readings). Intraocular pressure elevation was considered transient unless it was maintained throughout the follow-up or required treatment (persistent elevation). Results: Over a mean follow-up of 18 months, persistent and ...
The paper reports the results obtained with reduction of intraocular pressure in 38 eyes of 38 patients with acute neovascular glaucoma. Cyclocryocoagulation alone was made in 12 eyes, 26 eyes were treated by transscleral panretinal cryocoagulation combined with cyclocryocoagulation. In eyes treated by cyclocryocoagulation alone the intraocular pressure less than 26 mmHg was on 5th day after operation in 41.6%, on 10th day in 66.7%. However, this effect was transient in one-third of the patients, and no effect was found in one-third of eyes. In eyes treated by transscleral panretinal cryocoagulation combined with cyclocryocoagulation, the intraocular pressure less than 26 mmHg by 3 days after operation was recorded in 50%, by 10 days in 76.9%. Postoperative hypotension developed in 27%. It is concluded that intraocular pressure in neovascular glaucoma is better managed by transscleral panretinal cryocoagulation with concurrent cyclocryocoagulation than by cyclocryocoagulation alone.

Purpose: To assess the relationship between day one post-operative intra-ocular pressure and patient demographic information, lens status, tamponade medium (air, perfluoroethane, sulfur hexafluoride) and laser treatment.. Methods: A prospective observational study of all patients undergoing pars plana vitrectomy by a single surgeon within one case study. All patients had intraocular pressure recorded one-day after surgery. None of the patients had postoperative anti-glaucoma medications. All patients undergoing pars plana vitrectomy were previously pseudophakic or underwent combined surgery.. Results: Out of a final cohort of 161 patients, 6% had raised IOP (defined as ,30mmHg). A parsimonious regression model showed no strong correlation between raised IOP and type of gas tamponade (p=0.028 for C2F6, p=0.067 for SF6, air was the reference category), and a moderate association with number of laser burns (p=0.067).. Conclusion: The use of gas tamponade, in particular C2F6, does not constitute ...

Ocular hypertension is the presence of elevated fluid pressure inside the eye (intraocular pressure), usually with no optic nerve damage or visual field loss. For most individuals, the normal range of introcular pressure is between 10 mmHg and 21 mmHg. Elevated intraocular pressure is an important risk factor for glaucoma. The Ocular Hypertension Treatment Study, a large, multicentered, randomized clinical trial, determined that topical ocular hypotensive medication delays or prevents the onset of Primary Open-Angle Glaucoma. Accordingly, most individuals with consistently elevated intraocular pressures of greater than 21mmHg, particularly if they have other risk factors, are treated in an effort to prevent vision loss from glaucoma. The pressure within the eye is maintained by the balance between the fluid that enters the eye through the ciliary body and the fluid that exits the eye through the trabecular meshwork. Ocular hypertension is treated with either medications or laser. Medications ...
PURPOSE: To investigate the association between corneal biomechanical properties measured with the Ocular Response Analyzer (ORA) and also CorvisST (CST) tonometry, and glaucomatous visual field (VF) severity. METHODS: One hundred forty-six eyes of 91 patients with primary open-angle glaucoma who performed Humphrey Field Analyzer 30-2 or 24-2 SITA-Standard, ORA, and CST within 180 days were included in this multicentral, observational cross-sectional study. The association between ORA parameters (corneal hysteresis [CH] and corneal resistant factor [CRF]), CST parameters (A1 and A2 time, A1 and A2 length, A1 and A2 velocity, A1 and A2 deformation amplitude, highest deformation amplitude, highest concavity time, peak distance, and radius), and other basic parameters (age, intraocular pressure with Goldmann applanation tonometry, central corneal thickness, and axial length) against mean total deviation (mTD) were analyzed using a linear mixed-model and model selection with corrected Akaike ...
Glaucoma is one of the most common causes of blindness in the industrialized nations. For a long time glaucoma has been defined as a disease in which high intraocular pressure (IOP) leads to irreversible optic disc damage and subsequent visual field loss. However, recent investigations show that IOP is not the only factor that is involved in the glaucomatous process leading to retinal ganglion cell death. The role of vascular factors in the pathogenesis of glaucoma has recently received much attention based on animal experiments and epidemiological studies. Genes with products that are involved in the regulation of blood flow to ocular tissues may also be considered plausible candidates as a contributory factor in the development of glaucoma. Little is, however, known about a potential association between glaucomatous optic neuropathy and glaucomatous visual field defects and optic nerve head blood flow in patients with progressive open angle glaucoma (OAG). The current study seeks to gain ...
To investigate the effect of aging on ocular parameters, including intraocular pressure (IOP), measured with different tonometry methods in healthy young (HY) and healthy elderly (HE) subjects and to study the effect of corneal parameters on tonometry methods. In this prospective, cross-sectional study, fifty eyes of 50 HY subjects (28 females, 22-31 years of age) and 43 eyes of 43 HE subjects (22 females, 64-79) were included. IOP was measured with four tonometry methods in a standardized order: ocular response analyser (ORA), dynamic contour tonometry (DCT), applanation resonance tonometry (ART) and Goldmann applanation tonometry (GAT). Other measurements included axial length (AL), central corneal thickness (CCT), corneal curvature (CC), anterior chamber volume (ACV), corneal hysteresis (CH) and corneal resistance factor (CRF). The mean IOP (HY/HE; mmHg +/- standard deviation (SD)) was 12.2 +/- 2.2/14.1 +/- 3.5 with GAT. IOP was significantly higher (difference +/- standard error) in HE ...

Intraocular pressure (IOP) is a highly heritable risk factor for primary open-angle glaucoma and is the only target for current glaucoma therapy. The genetic factors which determine IOP are largely unknown. We performed a genome-wide association study for IOP in 11,972 participants from 4 independent population-based studies in The Netherlands. We replicated our findings in 7,482 participants from 4 additional cohorts from the UK, Australia, Canada, and the Wellcome Trust Case-Control Consortium 2/Blue Mountains Eye Study. IOP was significantly associated with rs11656696, located in GAS7 at 17p13.1 (p = 1.4 x 10\(^{-8}\)), and with rs7555523, located in TMCO1 at 1q24.1 (p = 1.6 x 10\(^{-8}\)). In a meta-analysis of 4 case-control studies (total N = 1,432 glaucoma cases), both variants also showed evidence for association with glaucoma (p = 2.4 x 10\(^{-2}\) for rs11656696 and p = 9.1 x 10\(^{-4}\) for rs7555523). GAS7 and TMCO1 are highly expressed in the ciliary body and trabecular meshwork as well as

Glaucoma is a leading cause of blindness, with an estimated world-wide prevalence of 3.5% in members of the population older than 40 years of age. Elevated intraocular pressure as the result of abnormal resistance to aqueous humor drainage is a major contributing, and the only preventable, factor in glaucoma development. Schlemms canal (SC), a lymphatic-like vessel encircling the anterior portion of the eye, plays a key role in promoting aqueous humor outflow and maintenance of normal intraocular pressure. The risk of developing glaucoma increases with age; therefore, understanding mechanisms of SC maintenance and how aging affects SC function are of special importance, both for prevention and novel treatment approaches to glaucoma. Using a compelling array of genetic models, Kim et al. report in this issue of the JCI that continuous angiopoietin/TIE2 signaling is required for maintaining SC identity and integrity during adulthood and show that its age-related changes can be rescued by a TIE2 ...
Primary open angle glaucoma is a condition where the pressure inside the eye (intraocular pressure) is greater than normal. If the intraocular pressure were to be measured in everyone across the country, the average pressure would be 16 mm Hg. A pressure above 21 mm Hg is considered elevated. There are some patients with intraocular pressures of between 21 and 25 who do not go on to develop glaucoma. However, these patients need to be watched closely. The exact causes of primary open angle glaucoma are not well understood. Aqueous fluid is constantly produced within the eye and travels throughout the eye, ultimately draining through a trabecular meshwork to be reabsorbed back into the rest of the body. It is believed that in individuals with glaucoma, the trabecular meshwork does not allow the fluid to leave the eye as quickly as in normal patients and as a result, the pressure in the eye becomes elevated. Primary open angle glaucoma can be detected on examination. Except in advanced cases, ...
What Is Ocular Hypertension? Eye pressure is expressed in millimeters of mercury (mm Hg), the same unit of measurement used in weather barometers.

Ocular hypertension is treated with either medications or laser. Medications that lower intraocular pressure work by decreasing aqueous humor production and/or increasing aqueous humor outflow. Laser trabeculoplasty works by increasing outflow. The cannabinoids found in cannabis sativa and indica (marijuana) have been shown to reduce intraocular pressure, by up to 50% for approximately four to five hours. But due to the duration of effect, significant side-effect profile, and lack of research proving efficacy, the American Glaucoma Society issued a position statement in 2009 regarding the use of marijuana as a treatment for glaucoma.[6]. ...

Glaucoma is a disease in which the optic nerve is damaged, leading to progressive and irreversible loss of vision. Glaucoma can develop at any intraocular pressure (IOP), but elevated intraocular pressure is one of the major risk factors for the development and progression of glaucoma. Most treatments for glaucoma are targeted at lowering the intraocular pressure, either by decreasing the formation of aqueous fluid in the eye, or, as in the case of glaucoma filtration surgery, by increasing the outflow of fluid from the eye. Trabeculectomy is a filtering surgery where an ostium is created into the anterior chamber from underneath a partial thickness scleral flap to allow for aqueous flow out of the eye. The aqueous flows into the subconjunctival space, usually leading to an elevation of the conjunctiva, referred to as a filtering bleb[1]. There are several suggested routes for the aqueous after reaching the filtering bleb. These routes include filtration through the conjunctiva into the tear
