Abstract Details


To analyze retrospectively treatment outcomes of Pigment Dispersion Syndrome (PDS) and Pigmentary Glaucoma (PG) among North Indian patients at a tertiary care eye institute.


Advanced eye center, PGIMER, sector- 12, chandigarh, India, postbox 160012


Eighty six eyes of 43 patients with PDS and PG from 2002-2015 were analysed. Data was retrieved from case sheets, and details were noted- VA, IOP, family history, whether laser peripheral iridotomy was performed, number of drugs at presentation and during follow up. Minimum follow up was 6 months. Patients with PDS were sub classified into PDS (IOP�â�‰�¤ 21 mmHg) and PDS with OHT (IOP>21 mmHg)


:Mean age at presentation was 48.6 �Â�± 14.2 years, positive family history in 6 eyes. There were 65% (28/43) males. 31 eyes had PDS, 7 eyes PDS with OHTN and 48 eyes PG. Laser peripheral iridotomy was performed in 2 eyes with PDS, 3 eyes with PDS with OHTN and 25 eyes with PG. Mean IOP initially decreased from 19.4 �Â�± 5.3 mmHg to 17.2 �Â�± 5.3 mmHg (p=0.046) after yag LPI. Medications decreased from 1.8 �Â�± 0.6 to 1.4 �Â�± 0.9 (p value 0.028) in PG group. 8 eyes with PG required glaucoma filtering surgery.


Laser peripheral iridotomy can be a beneficial adjunct in long term iop control of patients with pigmentary glaucoma.
