This video, from the WGC-2019 Film Festival, demonstrates an unusual complication of femtosecond cataract surgery in a hypertensive patient with glaucoma and a shallow anterior chamber.

The docking resulted in a hypertensive crisis and intraoperative shallowing of the anterior chamber with iris herniation through the side ports.

The patient was managed with lowering of blood pressure and IOP and cataract surgery was subsequently performed after a 60-minute interval using iris hooks to dilate the pupil.

From the WGC-2019 Photo Exhibition: Shamira Perera - Acquired aniridia.

Following a highly traumatic road traffic accident, this patient's iris was completely avulsed and remarkably cleanly expressed from the eye, leaving the IOL in the bag and relatively little collateral damage. The ciliary processes, Pan Retinal Photocoagulation scars and the equatorial region of the capsular bag are easily visible.

The WGA Film Festival aims to put storytelling power in the hands of glaucoma experts and seeks to showcase the role of individuals and communities as champions for glaucoma prevention, diagnosis and treatment.

The film festival highlight from WGC-2019 of March is: Optic reconstructive surgery in treatment of acute angle closure.

Patients with acute angle closure often have paralytic mydriasis accompanied by neurotrophic changes of iris stroma. The decreased function of the iris diaphragm function leads to visual aberrations that compromise the vision related quality of life. In this video the authors describe a technique for reconstruction of the iris and mechanical opening of the anterior chamber angle.

Thank you to all who participated in #GlaucomaWeek 2021, which took place from March 7-13, 2021.

World Glaucoma Week is a global initiative by the World Glaucoma Association (WGA) that relies on everyone’s participation to spread awareness about glaucoma and the need for regular testing. The more people get tested and diagnosed earlier, the more people continue to preserve their sight.

The world is bright, save your sight! ow.ly/2e2Q50E69ZC

#ThrowbackThursday
This month we highlight a visual from the WGC-2019 Photo Exhibition by Shamira Perera, titled ‘Extreme PAS’.

This ICE syndrome patient with correctopia and iris hole formation has copious amounts of high and low peripheral anterior synechiae formation. The goniophotos were taken with a RetCam. The view resembles a mountain landscape.

Exposure of a glaucoma drainage device tube is a serious, vision threatening complication which can occur due to a multitude of factors including micro-motion of the tube with eye movement, underlying ocular inflammation, melting of the patch graft and a friable conjunctiva.

In this video from the WGC-2019 Film Festival, the authors demonstrate three quintessential steps to achieve success in repairing an exposed tube. WGA Members are invited to watch it here: ow.ly/58oi50DHysl
