PURPOSE: The aim of the study was to assess the efficacy and safety of compressive sutures in patients with hypotony maculopathy after glaucoma surgery. METHODS: This retrospective case series analyzes the clinical outcomes of conjunctival compressive sutures in 17 patients with hypotony maculopathy developed after glaucoma surgery. Compressive Nylon 10-0 single sutures were used in all patients; in two patients, the procedure was repeated. All patients underwent ophthalmic evaluation and macular OCT scanning before the surgery, one month, six months, and one year after the procedure. RESULTS: Mean intraocular pressure (IOP) before suturing was 2.3 ± 1.57 mmHg and increased to 14.2 ± 7.03 mmHg (p = 0.00065) one month after the procedure. After six months, mean IOP was 10.2 ± 4.3 mmHg (p = 0.005), and after one year ± 4.7 mmHg (p = 0.0117). To obtain the target pressure, the sutures had to be removed in one patient, and medical therapy was undertaken in three patients. Mean decimal best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA) before the sutures was 0.18 ± 0.13 and increased to 0.53 ± 0.25 (p = 0.0004) after one month, to 0.46 ± 0.31 (p = 0.005) after six months, and to 0.31 ± 0.22 (p = 0.025) after one year. In one case, leakage from the bleb was observed after the procedure and bleb revision was required. CONCLUSIONS: transconjuctival compressive sutures seem to be an efficient and safe technique for managing hypotony maculopathy after glaucoma surgery.

OBJECTIVE: The aim of the study was to explore the influence of exudative age-related macular degeneration on the quality of life of patients from urban and rural areas. MATERIAL AND METHODS: The retrospective study included 144 Polish Caucasians with exudative age-related macular degeneration, treated with anti-VEGF, recruited from Department of Medical Retina in Lublinbetween March and June 2017. Clinical assessment included age, gender, visual acuity, complete ophthalmic examination, fundus fluorescein angiography and optical coherence tomography, medical history and the NEI VFQ-25 questionnaire. RESULTS: The mean age of the study group was 76.73±12.3 years, average time of AMD was 4.24±4.1 years. 21.5% of patients reported comorbidities such as hypertension, cardiovascular disease, diabetes mellitus. 99 (68.75%) lived in a city, while 45(31.25%) in a village. There was a tendency of females to complain more than males about moderate and severe discomfort and pain (p = 0.09). Most of the patients did not drive a car before the onset of the disease (female vs.male: 81% vs 62.9%; p = 0.01). 62.8% males and 25.8% females gave up driving (p = 0.003), whereas significantly more males gave up driving' and 25% of villagers gave up driving (p = 0.07). The parameter because of the eyesight - female vs. male: 50% vs. 20.8%; p = 0.03. There was a tendency of village respondents to complain more often about extreme difficulty in reading newspapers, street signs or the names of stores than (p = 0.08). 44.2% city residents. Rural patients felt to achieve much less because of their eyesight, which was not observed in patients from the city (p = 0.06). CONCLUSIONS: The place of residence and gender influenced perception of the disease in exudative form of age-related macular degeneration.

Trace elements play an important role in the pathogenesis of several serious ophthalmological disorders, such as glaucoma, age-related macular degeneration (AMD), diabetic retinopathy, cataract, etc. This study aimed to measure alterations of chemical elements' (67) levels in the aqueous humor of patients undergoing cataract surgery. The pilot study included 115 patients, (age 74 ± 7.27, female 64.35%, male 35.65%). The aqueous levels of elements were measured by the use of the inductively coupled plasma optical emission spectrometry (ICP-OES), quality controlled with certified standards. The classification of elements based on their concentration was achieved by hierarchical cluster analysis. This is the first screening study that quantifies over 60 elements which are present in the fluid from the anterior chamber of the eye of cataract patients. The obtained results can be suitable for understanding and identifying the causes that may play a role in the initiation and progression of lens opacity.
