A study which showed that a laser treatment called selective laser trabeculoplasty should be offered to patients with open angle glaucoma and ocular hypertension, supporting a change in clinical practice. Read more about the LiGHT trial on the PubMed website.
Hydrus 4 (Horizon)
The study which showed the safety and effectiveness of a form of implant called Hydrus aqueous implant for lowering eye pressure in glaucoma patients.
A study to which showed that a combination of a cataract surgery and laser technique is more effective than cataract surgery alone to treat patients with primary open angle glaucoma. Read more about PhacoECP on the SAGE journals website.
Effect of Phacoemulsification on facility of outflow
The study which showed that a cataract surgery increases the amount of fluid that can flow out of the eye which causes a lower pressure of the eye after surgery. Read more about the study on the BMJ website.
Aqueous outflow facility after phacoemulsification with or without goniosynechialysis in primary angle closure
A study in which patients had a new type of surgery that removes part of the cornea combined with standard cataract surgery. It showed these patients had significantly increased fluid flow from the eye and were less reliant on glaucoma medication. Read more about the study on the PubMed website.
Aqueous dynamics and race
A comparative study which showed that there was no difference in fluid flow in the eye between black and white patients with glaucoma. Read more about the aqueous dynamic and race study on the PubMed website.
SLT laser and aqueous dynamic effects
A study which showed that a laser technique lowers eye pressure by increasing the outflow but has no significant effect on the overall flow rate. Read more about the SLT laser study on the Ovid website.
The study aims to test a new medical device (eyeWatch) used in filtering surgery for the treatment of glaucoma.
The study evaluates the intraocular pressure lowering efficacy and safety of Bimatoprost sustained-release biodegradable implants after administration.
The study to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of the Hydrus aqueous implant for lowering intraocular pressure in glaucoma patients.
Aqueous dynamics MicroPulse laser
A study on the effect of transscleral MicroPulse laser cyclophotocoagulation on aqueous dynamics in patients with glaucoma or ocular hypertension.
A study comparing surgical approaches to treat black African and African-Caribbean patients with uncontrolled primary open angle glaucoma.
Treatment of advanced glaucoma (TAGS)
A study comparing primary medical treatment with primary augmented trabeculectomy for people with newly diagnosed advanced glaucoma.
A study on high-related quality of life in two treatment pathways for open angle glaucoma and ocular hypertension: selective trabeculoplasty versus conventional medical therapy.
Primary tube versus trabeculectomy
Primary tube versus trabeculectomy (PTVT) study.
A study assessing the safety and ocular hypotensive efficacy of PG324 ophthalmic solution compared to GANFORT.
Corneal endothelium Cell Density in Glaucoma
A longitudinal study to monitor corneal endothelial cell density over 3 years in glaucoma and ocular hypertension patients.
