Lens-Induced Glaucoma: An Audit of Cataract Cases in Hospital Sultanah Nur Zahirah, Kuala Terengganu (HSNZKT).

Cureus 2022 Mar 5;14(3):e22875. Epub 2022 Mar 5.

Ophthalmology, Hospital Canselor Tuanku Muhriz UKM (Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia), Kuala Lumpur, MYS.

Introduction: Cataract is the main cause of preventable blindness worldwide and as such, it is important to identify these patients early before complications develop. Cataracts may progress to become intumescent (phacomorphic) or hypermature (phacolytic). This can lead to lens-induced glaucoma, which may subsequently cause permanent optic nerve damage. Read More

Outcomes and favourable prognostic factors in patients of phacomorphic and phacolytic glaucoma managed by manual small-incision cataract surgery: A retrospective study.

Indian J Ophthalmol 2022 Apr;70(4):1216-1221

Glaucoma Services, Aravind Eye Hospital and PG Institute of Ophthalmology, Tirunelveli, Tamil Nadu, India.

Purpose: To evaluate the outcomes and identify favorable prognostic factors in patients of phacomorphic (PMG) and phacolytic glaucoma (PLG) managed by manual small-incision cataract surgery (MSICS).

Rom J Ophthalmol 2019 Oct-Dec;63(4):311-314

Ophthalmology Department, "Carol Davila" University of Medicine and Pharmacy, Bucharest, Romania.

Ultrasound is a fundamental tool used in all medical specialties, including ophthalmology. Nowadays, ultrasound biomicroscopy (UBM), a method with higher resolution, allows the investigation of in vivo details of the anterior segment of the eye at microscopic resolution. The examination is especially useful in patients with secondary glaucoma that involves a lens component such as phacomorphic glaucoma and occult phacomorphic glaucoma (OPG). Read More

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
