Headache: tip of the iceberg.

BMJ Case Rep 2020 Feb 20;13(2). Epub 2020 Feb 20.

LV Prasad Eye Institute, Venkata Lakshmi Eye Centre, Karamchedu, India

We report the case of a 64-year-old pseudophakic patient in a rural area who chronically suffered from headache with eye pain and was on analgesics for pain relief but never turned up to an ophthalmologist. There was lack of awareness to visit an ophthalmologist for headache as he thought that after undergoing cataract surgery, the role of ophthalmologist was limited. His approach to our centre was only after intense headache with sudden loss of vision. Read More

Graft failure: III. Glaucoma escalation after penetrating keratoplasty.

Int Ophthalmol 2008 Jun;28(3):191-207

Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences, University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics, 200 Hawkins Drive, Iowa City, IA 52242-1091, USA.

Glaucoma after penetrating keratoplasty is a frequently observed post-operative complication and is a risk factor for graft failure. Penetrating keratoplasty performed for aphakic and pseudophakic bullous keratopathy and inflammatory conditions are more likely to cause postoperative glaucoma compared with keratoconus and Fuchs' endothelial dystrophy. The intraocular pressure elevation may occur immediately after surgery or in the early to late postoperative period. Read More
