  • Clinical and pathological correlation of cotton wool spots in secondary angle closure glaucoma. [Journal Article]
  • AJAm J Ophthalmol Case Rep 2018; 10:192-195

  • CONCLUSIONS: Although not commonly associated with glaucoma, CWS can present in the setting of acute elevations of IOP and may be associated with loss of nerve fiber layer. This loss of nerve fiber layer can confound the ability to judge glaucoma progression based on nerve fiber layer thickness via optical coherence tomography and changes in disc contours. Patient care may benefit from care provider's awareness of this possible phenomenon in the setting of angle closure.
  • Phacomorphic Angle Closure Following Silicone Oil Tamponade in a Pediatric Patient. [Journal Article]
  • JGJ Glaucoma 2018 Apr 02
  • Leung VC, Fung S, … Ali A
  • CONCLUSIONS: Acute angle-closure in children is a rare event. To our knowledge, this is the first reported case of phacomorphic glaucoma secondary to vitreoretinal surgery in the pediatric population. Although uncommon, ophthalmologists should be aware of this potential complication with the intraocular use of silicone oil and administer urgent treatment accordingly.
  • Long-term Intraocular Pressure Elevation after Primary Angle Closure Treated with Early Phacoemulsification. [Journal Article]
  • KJKorean J Ophthalmol 2018; 32(2):108-115
  • Baek SU, Kim KH, … Lee KW
  • CONCLUSIONS: The attack eyes treated with phacoemulsification showed a significantly higher prevalence of IOP rise and newly developed glaucoma than fellow eyes that received phacoemulsification. These findings suggest that there is a possibility of IOP rise and development of glaucoma even when angle closure and successful IOP control have apparently been achieved after phacoemulsification.
  • Laser Peripheral Iridotomy in Primary Angle Closure: A Report by the American Academy of Ophthalmology. [Journal Article]
  • OOphthalmology 2018 Feb 23
  • Radhakrishnan S, Chen PP, … Chen TC
  • CONCLUSIONS: Laser peripheral iridotomy increases angle width in all stages of primary angle closure and has a good safety profile. Most PACS eyes do not receive further intervention, whereas many PAC and APAC eyes, and most PACG eyes, receive further treatment. Progression to PACG is uncommon in PACS and PAC. There are limited data on the comparative efficacy of LPI versus other treatments for the various stages of angle closure; 1 randomized controlled trial each demonstrated superiority of cataract surgery over LPI in APAC and of clear lens extraction over LPI in PACG or PAC with IOP above 30 mmHg.
