    1. Open Conjunctival Approach for Sub-Tenon's Xen Gel Stent Placement and Bleb Morphology by Anterior Segment Optical Coherence Tomography

      Open Conjunctival Approach for Sub-Tenon's Xen Gel Stent Placement and Bleb Morphology by Anterior Segment Optical Coherence Tomography

      Precis: Sub-Tenon’s implantation of the Xen ® Gel stent resulted in significant intraocular pressure lowering along with a low rate of postoperative bleb needling, and a favorable bleb morphology on anterior segment optical coherence tomography. Purpose: To assess clinical outcomes and bleb morphology following sub-Tenon’s implantation of the Xen ® Gel Stent (Allergan Inc., Dublin, Ireland). Methods: The medical records of patients who underwent sub-Tenon’s Xen ® Gel Stent implantation with intraoperative mitomycin-C via an open conjunctival approach were reviewed. Postoperative intraocular pressure (IOP) and number of glaucoma medications at 1,3,6,9 and 12 months were assessed. Bleb ...

    2. An Examination of the Frequency of Paravascular Defects and Epiretinal Membranes in Eyes With Early Glaucoma Using En-face Slab OCT Images

      An Examination of the Frequency of Paravascular Defects and Epiretinal Membranes in Eyes With Early Glaucoma Using En-face Slab OCT Images

      Purpose: To examine the frequency of paravascular defects (PDs) and macular epiretinal membranes (ERMs) in eyes categorized as having mild glaucoma or glaucoma suspect using en-face slab analysis of optical coherence tomography (OCT) scans. Materials and Methods: Fifty-seven glaucomatous eyes, 44 low-risk suspect eyes, and 101 healthy control eyes were included in the study. The 101 glaucomatous and suspect eyes had a mean deviation better than −6 dB on the 24-2 visual field, and a spherical refractive error between±6 D or axial length <26.5 mm. Two OCT-graders masked to eye classification identified ERMs and PDs on en-face slab ...

      Details of Glaucomatous Damage Are Better Seen on OCT En Face Images Than on OCT Retinal Nerve Fiber Layer Thickness Maps

      Purpose : High-resolution images of glaucomatous damage to the retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) were obtained with an adaptive optics-scanning light ophthalmoscope (AO-SLO) and used as a basis for comparisons between en face slab images and thickness maps derived from optical coherence tomography (OCT) scans. Methods : Wide-field (9 × 12 mm) cube scans were obtained with swept-source OCT (DRI-OCT) from six eyes of six patients. All eyes had a deep defect near fixation as seen on a 10-2 visual field test. Optical coherence tomography en face images, based on the average reflectance intensity, were generated (ATL 3D-Suite) from 52-μm slabs just ...
