Featured at the WGC-2019 Photo Exhibition, Eun Ji Lee showcased the enlargement of choroidal microvasculature dropout with progressive glaucomatous change of the optic nerve head.

The images obtained show the progressive excavation of the neuroretinal rim with enlargement of choroidal microvasculature dropout (arrowheads). This study was done over a 2 year period to determine the significance of choroidal microvasculature dropout and the damage related to glaucomatous damage.

Our patients’ questions answered:
Can glaucoma occur after injury (trauma) to the eye?
When an eye sustains an injury there can be an acute increase in IOP (pressure inside the eye) due to damage to the angle structures, hyphema (blood in anterior chamber), inflammation, and other mechanisms.

#FlashbackFriday to the WGC-2019 Photo Exhibition: Have a look at the submission by Rachel Chong: Intraocular lens haptic protruding through iridectomy.

This photo highlights the (Retcam) goniophotograph taken from a patient presented with poor vision and raised intraocular pressure following cataract extraction and trabeculectomy some years ago. Gonioscopy revealed an intraocular lens haptic that was protruding through the iridectomy, causing iris chafing. There is also evidence of heavy pigment deposition in the trabecular meshwork and a faintly visible sclerostomy in the background.

#FlashbackFriday to the WGC-2019 Photo Exhibition: Have a look at the submission by the Glaucoma Research Centre, Montchoisi Clinic, Lausanne, Switzerland: Ocular decompression retinopathy after deep sclerectomy.

This photo spotlights the fundus photography three months after deep sclerectomy for traumatic glaucoma, showing characteristic signs of ocular decompression retinopathy, multiple diffuse, superficial (white arrows), and deep (black arrows) retinal hemorrhages peripapillary and across the posterior pole. Post-operative intraocular pressures were of 6 mmHg, from 30 mmHg before surgery.
