Description

The goal of glaucoma surgery is the lowering of intraocular pressure. Traditional surgical procedures such as trabeculectomy or aqueous shunt to an external reservoir have well described success rates but equally well described complications. Newer glaucoma surgeries strive to preserve IOP-lowering efficacy while reducing complications or diverting aqueous with more predictable wound healing than now experienced in the subconjunctival space. This symposium will illustrate some of these newer approaches and devices.

  • Prof. Dr Julian Garcia Feijoo. MD PhD.

    Affiliation: Professor, Division of Ophthalmology and Visual Science, Niigata University, Japan

    Area of Interest: Mechanisms of Glaucomatous Neuropathy, Morphological, Biochemical Changes and Imaging in the Glaucomatous Lamina Cribrosa, Surgical and Medical management for Glaucoma, Correlation between glaucomatous visual field defects and QOL/QOV.

  • Nils A. Loewen, MD, PhD

    Nils A. Loewen, MD, PhD is an Assistant Professor in the Ophthalmology Department at the University of Pittsburgh. At the UPMC Eye Center, he is the Director of the Glaucoma Section, the Director of Electronic Health Records and the Director of the Glaucoma Fellowship.

    Clinically, he is specialized in Glaucoma and Cataract care. He provides new, minimally invasive glaucoma procedures that are bleb-free and has very comprehensive experience with trabectome surgery. He was the first surgeon in the US to implant the final GSM+ gold shunt, a novel suprachoroidal drainage device. He also offers small incision trabeculectomy and canaloplasty. In addition to regular cataract surgery, he performs complex cataract procedures and anterior segment reconstruction.

    In his basic research, his lab is focused on bioengineering of the ocular outflow system to lower eye pressure (NIH K08EY022737-01). He spearheaded gene therapy for glaucoma with lentiviral vectors and developed a technique to permanently genetically modify the outflow tract of the eye. His current research is focused on using these tools to reverse engineer a working outflow tract with stem cells as a novel treatment of glaucoma.

    He has authored more than 70 abstracts, articles, book chapters and patents and is a reviewer for 13 scientific journals. He is a member of the American Glaucoma Society, American Academy of Ophthalmology and Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology.
