Dr P. Williams highlights the important issue that at the current stage there are no neuroprotective strategies in glaucoma. Speaking about glaucoma as a metabolic optic neuropathy, he emphasizes that RGCs are particularly vulnerable to metabolic and physical stress. Metabolism and mitochondrial health decline with age and is also exacerbated by periods of elevated IOP. Targeting neuronal metabolic decline and mitochondria may offer safe, neuroprotective treatments for glaucoma and also other age-related neurodegenerative diseases. ow.ly/F7id50iAa5D ...

Prof Dr Eugenio J. Maul introduces that phaco surgery in small eyes today is no longer considered a nightmare – using topical anesthesia, pre-op Mannitol if necessary, proper IOL calculation formula, etc. However, postoperatively even several years after surgery, angle closure glaucoma might develop. Clinical cases are discussed describing various problems and possible solutions.
