  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

A 45-year-old female was referred to us for chronic closed angle glaucoma after unsuccessful laser iridotomy and medication. Nanophthalmos was present bilaterally, the corneal diameter measuring 10.5mm and the axial length of the eyeglobe 20.4mm in either eye. The correct visual acuity was 0.7 each and the intraocular pressure measured 28 mmHg under medication. The right eye was successfully treated with goniosyne-chiolysis, phacoemulsification and intraocular lensimplantation. The left eye was treated by core vitrectomy, goniosynechiolysis and continuous cir-cular capsulorhexis. After temporary closure of the wound due to rise in intraocular pressure, phaco-emulsification was performed with posterior cham-ber lens implantation 2 weeks later. These proce-dures induced control of intraocular pressure with-out medication in both eyes.
