Weiner Working to Increase Patient Safety in Glaucoma Surgery

Updated September 25, 2020

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.
