Abstract

Purpose: To investigate the influence of glaucoma surgery for instillation adherence in the glaucoma patients.

Methods: 128 glaucoma patients who recorded drop diary in instillation therapy were studied. 23 patients had gone through trabeculectomy (TLE group), and 105 patients had no experience of glaucoma surgery (no-TLE group). The instillation rate, kinds of drops, details of oration (one eye, or both eyes) and instillation eye were studied and compared between two groups.

Results: 5 patients of TLE group were prescribed one drop and the mean instillation rate was 97.7%. 3 patients were prescribed 2 drops, 9 patients were prescribed 3 drops, 6 patients were prescribed 4 drops in TLE group, and the mean instillation rate was 97.8%, 97.6%, 97.5%, respectively. The mean instillation rate of no-TLE group was 97.8%, and no significant difference between them was found(p>0.05). 18 patients had gone through trabeculectomy in one eye, and 17 of 18 patients were using drops in their fellow eyes. 5 patients had gone through trabeculectomy in both eyes in TLE group.

Conclusions: No significant differences of instillation adherence were found between those who had gone through glaucoma surgery and those who had not. It was found that good adherence was kept in both groups in the patients who kept drop diary.
