Intraoperative Descemet's membrane detachment in a case of phacomorphic glaucoma.

BMJ Case Rep 2018 Oct 21;2018. Epub 2018 Oct 21.

Department of Ophthalmology, Dr. Rajendra Prasad Centre for Ophthalmic Sciences, AIIMS, New Delhi, India.

A 60-year-old female patient with phacomorphic glaucoma underwent initial medical management to control the intraocular pressure (IOP). After 48 hours, a stable IOP was achieved and subsequently the patient was planned for phacoemulsification followed by intraocular lens implantation. There was initial difficulty while reconstructing the corneal wounds; however, phacoemulsification and IOL implantation were uneventful but during viscoelastic removal, an inadvertent Descemet's membrane detachment involving the central cornea was noted.

The role of clear lens extraction in angle closure glaucoma.

Rom J Ophthalmol 2017 Oct-Dec;61(4):244-248

Clinical Ophthalmology Emergency Hospital Bucharest, Romania.

Clear lens extraction can be considered a therapeutic option in angle closure glaucoma (ACG). Even if it does not represent the first choice of treatment, it can be taken into consideration when the topical treatment does not control the intraocular pressure (IOP) and iridotomy does not have a positive effect on the angle closure, especially in appositional angle closure when biometry or ultrabiomicroscopy (UBM) show lens involvement. In angle closure glaucoma, clear lens extraction represents an etiological treatment that takes into account the role of the lens in the pathogenesis of the disease. Read More

Limited vitrectomy in phacomorphic glaucoma.

Indian J Ophthalmol 2017 Dec;65(12):1422-1424

Centre for Sight, New Delhi, India.

One of the challenging situations for a cataract surgeon is phacoemulsification in the shallow anterior chamber like cases of phacomorphic glaucoma. Some of the main concerns of operating in a narrow space include endothelial decompensation, descemet's detachment, and posterior capsular rents. High vitreous pressure predisposes to posterior capsular rents owing to a reduced concavity of the posterior capsule and increasing the proximity of phaco-tip to the posterior capsule. Read More

Int Ophthalmol 2017 Aug 13;37(4):849-858. Epub 2016 Sep 13.

Institute of Ophthalmology, Joseph Eye Hospital, Tiruchirappalli, 620001, Tamil Nadu, India.

Purpose: To compare data on anatomical and biometric parameters, and their combination, obtained by using ultrasound biomicroscopy (UBM) and A-scan in eyes with phacomorphic glaucoma (PG) and eyes with mature cataract and to determine differences that may predispose to development of PG.

Diabetes mellitus contributes to an earlier and a quicker development of opacities of the lens and worsening of the vision in affected people, in comparison with healthy people in similar age. The main source of energy in the human lens is glucose, which is metabolised through the glycolytic process. When the level of glucose increases in blood, its content also increases in aqueous humour and in the lens. Read More

Sutureless single-port transconjunctival pars plana limited vitrectomy combined with phacoemulsification for management of phacomorphic glaucoma.

J Cataract Refract Surg 2007 Jun;33(6):951-4

Dr. Rajendra Prasad Centre for Ophthalmic Sciences, All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi, India.

We describe a technique that uses a small-gauge, single-port, sutureless transconjunctival limited pars plana vitrectomy to facilitate phacoemulsification in eyes with a shallow anterior chamber and high intraocular pressure (phacomorphic glaucoma). These eyes have positive vitreous pressure, and anterior chamber formation with an ophthalmic viscosurgical device may not be possible. Surgery is difficult and prone to various intraoperative complications. Read More

Phacomorphic glaucoma is a lens-induced secondary angle closure glaucoma that may occur as a result of mature cataract formation. A patient with markedly asymmetric cataract and anterior chamber depth was referred after the development of significant eye pain and elevated intraocular pressure that did not respond to topical antiglaucoma medications. The presence of an asymmetric mature lens, angle closure, and intraocular pressure elevation in the affected eye led to the diagnosis of phacomorphic glaucoma. Read More

Increased crystalline lens thickness and phacomorphic glaucoma in patients with Fanconi anemia.

J Cataract Refract Surg 2006 Oct;32(10):1771-4

Glaucoma Service, Moorfields Eye Hospital, London, UK.

We describe 2 siblings with Fanconi anemia (FA). One developed phacomorphic glaucoma, and both had increased crystalline lens thickness, features that have not been reported in patients with FA. The possible pathogenesis and clinical implications of the findings are discussed. Read More

Department of Ophthalmology, The New York Eye and Ear Infirmary, New York, New York 10003, USA.

Purpose: Patients with angle-closure glaucoma and high myopia are uncommon. We evaluated the clinical characteristics of all patients with angle closure and high myopia in our database and propose possible mechanisms for angle closure in these atypical patients.

Design: Retrospective noncomparative case series. Read More

Argon laser peripheral iridoplasty in the management of phacomorphic glaucoma.

Ophthalmic Surg Lasers Imaging 2005 Jul-Aug;36(4):286-91

Yuen Long Yung Fung Shee Ophthalmic Centre and the Department of Ophthalmology, Tuen Mun Hospital, New Territories West Cluster, Hong Kong SAR.

Background And Objective: To document the efficacy and safety of argon laser peripheral iridoplasty (ALPI) as a temporizing measure in the treatment of phacomorphic glaucoma and to evaluate the mid-term visual outcomes.

Patients And Methods: The clinical records of all patients with phacomorphic glaucoma treated with ALPI from December 1999 to December 2002 were retrospectively reviewed. The primary outcome measure was the rate of successful control of intraocular pressure. Read More

A prospective study of 413 cases of lens-induced glaucoma in Nepal.

Indian J Ophthalmol 2001 Jun;49(2):103-7

Sagarmatha Choudhary Eye Hospital, Lahan, Nepal.

Purpose: To determine the frequency and types of lens-induced glaucoma (LIG), reasons for late presentation and outcome of current management.

Methods: Prospective case series of 413 patients/eyes with LIG over a 12-month period in 1998; 311 of these patients underwent cataract surgery. Visual acuity and intraocular pressure (IOP) were pre- and postoperatively assessed. Read More

Immediate argon laser peripheral iridoplasty (ALPI) as initial treatment for acute phacomorphic angle-closure (phacomorphic glaucoma) before cataract extraction: a preliminary study.

Eye (Lond) 2005 Jul;19(7):778-83

Department of Ophthalmology & Visual Sciences, The Chinese University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong, People's Republic of China.

Purpose: To study the safety and efficacy of immediate argon laser peripheral iridoplasty (ALPI) as initial treatment of acute phacomorphic angle-closure (phacomorphic glaucoma) before cataract extraction.

Methods: In all, 10 consecutive patients with acute phacomorphic angle-closure and intraocular pressure (IOP) > or =40 mmHg were recruited into the study. Each patient received topical atropine (1%) and timolol (0. Read More

Combined extracapsular cataract extraction with ahmed glaucoma valve implantation in phacomorphic glaucoma.

Indian J Ophthalmol 2002 Mar;50(1):25-8

Gurunanak Eye Centre, New Delhi, India.

Purpose: To report a retrospective analysis of a combined procedure of extracapsular cataract extraction (ECCE) with heparin surface modified (HSM) posterior chamber intraocular lens (PCIOL) implantation along with primary Ahmed glaucoma valve (AGV) implantation in an attempt to optimize visual acuity gains and intraocular pressure (IOP) control in patients with phacomorphic glaucoma.

Methods: ECCE with HSM PC IOL and AGV implantation was performed through two separate incisions in 15 patients diagnosed with phacomorphic glaucoma. Postoperative improvement in visual acuity and IOP control were monitored. Read More
