Effects of DHA on Post-operative Fibrosis of Trabulectomy Blebs in Glaucoma Surgery

Brief description of study

Post-operative fibrosis of trabulectomy blebs is a major cause of surgical failure leading to a renewed increase in intraocular pressure. The use of anti-metabolites over many years has made it possible to improve success rates for this surgery but these drugs have numerous adverse effects as they are toxic. Alternative therapies are thus necessary, and we believe that DHA could have antifibrotic effects on fibroblasts and could thus improve success rates in this surgery.
