Overcoming diagnostic and treatment challenges in uveitic glaucoma.

Clin Exp Optom 2018 Jul 29. Epub 2018 Jul 29.

US Department of Veterans Affairs, New Jersey Health Care System, East Orange, New Jersey, USA.

Uveitic glaucoma is a range of disorders that results in optic nerve damage from elevated intraocular pressure secondary to intraocular inflammation. As compared to primary open angle glaucoma, uveitic glaucoma is associated with a more aggressive disease course caused by very high intraocular pressure levels that wax and wane. Diagnosis is often based on clinical presentation, disease course, and associated systemic manifestations. Read More

Treatment Duration and Side Effect Profile of Long-Term Use of Intravitreal Preservative-Free Triamcinolone Acetonide in Uveitis.

Am J Ophthalmol 2018 Oct 24;194:63-71. Epub 2018 Jul 24.

Cole Eye Institute, Cleveland Clinic, Cleveland, Ohio, USA. Electronic address:

Purpose: Noninfectious uveitis has been treated historically with corticosteroid therapy in varying doses and routes. Triesence, a preservative-free sterile formulation of triamcinolone acetonide, has been used in a wide spectrum of ocular pathologies, but there have been few large studies validating its dosing or detailing long-term side effects in uveitic disease. The primary aim of this study was to describe the relative duration of action and side effects of 2 doses of preservative-free intravitreal triamcinolone acetonide (PF-IVTA) in uveitis. Read More

Comparison of surgical outcomes of trabeculectomy, Ahmed shunt, and Baerveldt shunt in uveitic glaucoma.

J Ophthalmic Inflamm Infect 2018 Jun 18;8(1). Epub 2018 Jun 18.

Department of Ophthalmology, USC Roski Eye Institute, Keck Medicine of University of Southern California, 1450 San Pablo Street, Suite 4700, Los Angeles, CA, 90033, USA.

Background: Uveitis is defined as a collection of syndromes involving intraocular inflammation which can lead to pain, tissue damage, and vision loss. Ophthalmic surgery in uveitis patients can be challenging due to inflammation-induced fibrosis and scarring. Trabeculectomy and implantation of glaucoma drainage devices (aqueous shunts) have been used in surgical management of uveitic glaucoma, however there is a paucity of literature examining the comparative results of these entities in this unique setting.

Department of Ophthalmology, Harvard Medical School, Schepens Eye Research Institute of Massachusetts Eye and Ear, Boston, Massachusetts.

Glaucoma is a complex neurodegenerative disease with many clinical subtypes. Some of its rare forms include pigmentary glaucoma, uveitic glaucoma and congenital glaucoma. While they all share common features of progressive retinal ganglion cell (RGC) loss, optic nerve damage and corresponding visual field loss, the exact mechanisms underlying glaucomatous neuron loss are not clear.

An intraocular pressure increase with development of glaucomatous damage is a common complication of uveitis. The prevalence has a wide range depending on various factors such as the underlying uveitis type and the duration of the disease. Pathogenetically, a distinction must be made between a secondary angle closure component and the more frequently occurring open-angle glaucoma. Read More

Trabeculotomy ab interno with Trabectome as surgical management for systemic fluoroquinolone-induced pigmentary glaucoma: A case report.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2017 Oct;96(43):e7936

aDepartment of Ophthalmology, Eastern Virginia Medical School bVirginia Eye Consultants, Norfolk, VA.

Rationale: Bilateral acute iris transillumination (BAIT) is a poorly-understood ocular syndrome in which patients present with acute iridocyclitis and pigmentary dispersion with or without ocular hypertension. The etiology of the disease remains unknown, though recent reports suggest an antecedent upper respiratory tract infection or systemic antibiotic administration may trigger the clinical syndrome.

Patient Concerns: A 55-year-old female was referred for a second opinion regarding her bilateral ocular pain, photophobia, and ocular hypertension. Read More

Glaucoma surgery is classified into a number of areas: intra-ocular drainage, filtration surgery and cyclo-coagulation. Although filtration surgery is the most effective way to lower intraocular pressure (IOP), no surgical technique manages to result in fulfills complete efficacy and safety. Trabeculectomy, one type of filtration surgery, is a common surgical procedure for glaucoma. Read More

Background: Classic retinitis pigmentosa (RP) and other syndromic variants have previously been associated to Fuchs' heterochromic iridocyclitis (FHI). Common immunogenic and inflammatory pathways have been proposed to explain the higher incidence of this uveitic phenomenon in patients with retinal dystrophies without definitive answers. Infrequent variants of RP such as inverse RP have not been previously reported in association with FHI. Read More
