If through growth the lens becomes too big for the eye it can result in a condition termed phacomorphic glaucoma.
Phacomorphic glaucoma was diagnosed when patients presented with red eye, severe pain and diminished vision.
The second section contains classic papers previously published by the contributors on femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgery and initial clinical evaluation, imaging, capsulotomy, intraocular lens tilt and decentration, intraocular lens decentration parameters, long-term outcomes, internal aberrations and optical quality, intraocular lens power calculation and refractive outcomes, effects on the development of posterior capsule opacification and the macula, central corneal volume and endothelial cell count, incision morphology and corneal higher-order aberration analysis, and uses of the surgery in traumatic cataracts, after penetrating keratoplasty, and in phacomorphic glaucoma.
Visual prognosis, intraocular pressure control and complications in phacomorphic glaucoma following manual small incision cataract surgery.
They discuss orbital tumors, refractive surgery, conductive keratoplasty, glaucoma imaging, age- related macular degeneration, ocular and adnexal injuries in warfare, genetic testing and counseling, phacomorphic glaucoma, the management of subluxated lenses, craniopharyngioma, phacoemulsification in vitrectomized eyes, retinal cysts, and the management of rhegmatogenous retinal detachment by vitreoretinal techniques.
Phacomorphic glaucoma diagnosis was done based on the presence of corneal oedema, shallow anterior chamber, flare in the aqueous, fixed dilated pupil, intumescent cataractous lens, closed angle of the anterior chamber and increased intraocular pressure above 21 mm Hg.
Phacomorphic glaucoma Management and visual prognosis.
In phacomorphic glaucoma, the swollen lens may block the anterior flow of the aqueous humor from the posterior chamber pushing the iris forward.
The diagnosis of phacomorphic glaucoma was based on the presence of the classical signs and symptoms such as pain and redness, shallow anterior chamber (AC), cornea oedema and increased IOP with intumescent lens.
Types of LIG: Commonest type of glaucoma was phacomorphic glaucoma (54%).
The most common type of LIG was phacomorphic glaucoma followed by phacolytic glaucoma.
Phacomorphic glaucoma and glaucoma secondary to ectopia lentis are types with closed angle.
