Abstract Details


To determine IOP control utilizing CLASS and Phaco-CLASS in the early postoperative period after surgery.


Glaucoma, Cataract and Advanced Anterior Segment Unit, Barzilay University Medical Center, Ashkelon, Israel.


A retrospective interventional non- randomized comparative chart review. Main outcome measures were same day IOP and 24 hours following surgery, as well at IOP at 1 month. We reviewed 16 eyes of 15 patients (one bilateral simultaneous stand alone CLASS).


Mean IOP preoperatively was 22.75±6.93 mmHg. Mean glaucoma medication classes preoperatively were 3.26±1.03 (range 2-5). Glaucoma severity ranged from mild field loss to advanced. Mean postoperative IOP same day was 12.68±9.1 (range 0-36 mmHg, p=0.000729) and 24 hours after surgery was 13.25±6.59 mmHg (range 4-27, p=0.000207). At one month mean IOP was 12.33±2.74 (p=0.000022). This review is ongoing and will present more results by time of presentation.


CLASS was found to be safe and efficacious in the immediate postoperative period, same day and the first 24 hours after surgery. The IOP after one month was also highly significantly low from preoperative. No adverse events nor complications were noted, none of the patients required postoperative glaucoma medications or interventions.
