Glaucoma, Ocular Pathology/Oncology
In this 1-Minute video, Dr. Arsham Sheybani creates a unicameral eye in a 91-year-old male who presented with malignant glaucoma 20 years after undergoing cataract surgery. Malignant glaucoma can vary in presentation and does not always have a dramatic clinical course. A myopic shift after routine cataract surgery can sometimes stem from a forwardly displaced IOL. This can be identified by gonioscopy. Ultrasound should be performed to rule out other posterior pushing pathologies. Creating a unicameral eye is critical in breaking the attack, Dr. Sheybani notes.
