The Diurnal and Nocturnal Effect of Pilocarpine on Intraocular Pressure and Ocular Perfusion Pressure

This study plans to learn more about the effect of pilocarpine on intraocular pressure and ocular perfusion pressure for a full twenty-four hour period. In this study, the investigators seek to better characterize the knowledge base of the intraocular pressure (IOP) lowering effects of pilocarpine in patients with open angle ...

Phase N/A

Mitomycin C Trabeculectomy Trial for Glaucoma in Ethiopia

This study is a randomized, double-masked (study participants and outcome assessors) trial. During the enrollment period, patients from Menelik Hospital who are planning to have trabeculectomy surgery and who meet the study enrollment criteria will be randomized to receive mitomycin C applied topically or by injection during the surgery.At Menelik ...

Phase N/A

Anterior Segment Imaging With Ultrahigh-resolution OCT in Patients With Glaucoma and PEX - a Pilot Study

The aim of the present study is to develop a measurement protocol for optimal imaging of the anterior segment of the eye, including anterior chamber angle, Schlemm's canal, filtering bleb and pseudoexfoliation deposits on the lens based on measurements in patients with glaucoma and PEX. In glaucoma the structures of ...

Phase N/A

Ocular Blood Flow in Early Glaucoma Patients Before and After Treatment With Dorzolamide

High intraocular pressure (IOP) is the major risk factor for glaucoma. Lowering intraocular pressure is still the only accepted form of treatment for glaucoma. Over the past decade, epidemiological and experimental evidence suggested that impaired ocular blood flow is an important risk factor with an important role in the pathogenesis ...

Phase N/A

The Genetic Study of Primary Angle-Closure Glaucoma

Glaucoma has long been recognised as a leading cause of blindness, and that the scale of the problem will only increase with future population growth and increasing life expectancy (1). The epidemiological information available in 1993 in the World Health Organization's (WHO) global data bank on blindness was reviewed by ...

Phase N/A

The Results of Ahmed Valve Operations

Glaucoma drainage devices are usually placed in the superior quadrants. The superotemporal quadrant is usually the site of choice. However, when the upper fornix is scarred and especially when conjunctiva is two fibrotic to enable adequate coverage of tube with a scleral or other patch graft, some surgeons place the ...

Phase N/A

Diagnostic Innovations in Glaucoma Study

The purpose of the study is: 1. To further determine the nature of vision loss and optic nerve structural change associated with glaucoma. Using recently developed psychophysical and imaging techniques, we will continue use of a multivariate approach for analysis of the functional and structural changes associated with glaucoma to ...

Phase N/A

Post-Operative Sub-Tenon Kenalog in Glaucoma Filtering Surgery

Postoperative sub-Tenon Triamcinolone Acetonide in glaucoma filtering surgery Objectives: Trabeculectomy is a surgical procedure designed to reduce internal eye pressure by draining fluid from within the eye to the sub-conjunctival (superficial eye lining) space. Scar formation from conjunctival and Tenon's capsule fibroblast proliferation represents the most common cause of failure ...

Phase N/A

Combined Phacotube vs Phacotrabeculectomy:A Randomized Controlled Trial

Studies have pointed out racial differences in the outcome of conventional filtration surgery. Glaucoma drainage implants have been found to do well in Asian eyes but no randomized controlled trial is available to support this claim. Objectives: It is the aim of this study to compare the effectiveness and safety ...


Normal Tension and Chronic Open Angle Glaucoma and Cerebrospinal Fluid Composition

We will recruit 30 patients with progressive visual function loss, due to Normal tension glaucoma (NTG) or chronic open angle glaucoma (COAG), despite optimal conventional or intraocular pressure reducing surgery treatment so far. We will proceed with an optic nerve sheath fenestration (ONSF) (according to the studies in the literature, ...
