Co-management of cataract and glaucoma in the era of minimally invasive glaucoma surgery
AbstractPurpose of review
This review discusses the options available to be used in conjunction with phacoemulsification cataract surgery to control intraocular pressure. We present a strategy for planning which surgery should be performed based on goals of care.Recent findings
New clinical evidence for using the CyPass, Kahook and Xen45 devices has been published recently and is summarized.Summary
Cataract and glaucoma frequently exist together. Because the field of glaucoma surgical care is expanding and cataract surgery is becoming progressively safer, it is important to frequently re-evaluate our treatment paradigms. We review and evaluate current studies and treatment options.
