    FP Agonists and Prostaglandin Associated Periorbitopathy: Frequency, Problems, and Possible Solutions

    FP Agonists and Prostaglandin Associated Periorbitopathy: Frequency, Problems, and Possible Solutions

    Topical prostaglandin (FP agonists) is the first-choice medication for eye drops and is recognized for its strong IOP-lowering effects. However, in some cases, it poses a problem by causing Prostaglandin-Associated Periorbitopathy (PAPS), represented by the sunken appearance of the upper eyelids. PAPS can have a significant negative impact on medical examinations, including IOP measurements, and surgical outcomes. During this session, I would like to discuss the frequency and issues associated w...

    Pain Points in PAPS for Glaucoma Management

    Pain Points in PAPS for Glaucoma Management

    There are several instances when PAPS becomes a problem. In the initial stages, there are the distinctive side effects and concomitant effects on compliance and self-confidence. In the longer term, glaucoma management may be affected by inaccuracies in IOP measurement. Finally, the effect of the Deep Upper Eyelid Sulcus on the results of trabeculectomy surgery and difficulties in needling with anti-fibrotics seems to plague the surgeons who deal with these PAPS eyes.

In the longer term, glaucoma management may be affected by inaccuracies in IOP measurement. Finally, the effect of the Deep Upper Eyelid Sulcus on the results of trabeculectomy surgery and difficulties in needling with anti-fibrotics seems to plague the surgeons who deal with these PAPS eyes. The attendees will be offered way to circumvent these issues.
