Two studies could help increase safety and minimize expense for patients undergoing glaucoma surgery. The studies were conducted over several years by Asher Weiner, MD
, clinical associate professor of ophthalmology
, who is affiliated with UBMD Ophthalmology at the Ross Eye Institute. The first study, “Intraocular Pressure After Cataract Surgery Combined With Ab Interno Trabeculectomy Versus Trabecular Micro-Bypass Stent: An Intrasubject Same-Surgeon Comparison,” was published in the Journal of Glaucoma in September. The second study, “Corneal Parameters After Tube-Shunt Implantation Through the Ciliary Sulcus,” was published online ahead of print in July in the journal Ophthalmology Glaucoma.
