  • Look Inside

We performed phacoemulsification, posterior chamber lens implantation and trabeculotomy in 38 eyes with glaucoma and cataract. The series included open angle glaucoma 28 eyes, combined glaucoma 6, secondary glaucoma 2 and low tension glaucoma 2. The intraocular pressure was well controlled after 3 months in all eyes with or without medication. The postoperative visual acuity was 0.5 or better in 86% of eyes. No eye showed decrease of vision after surgery. Transient ocular hypertension over 30 mmHg devoloped in 13 eyes, 36%. The current simultaneous surgical procedure was safe and effective for glaucomatous eyes with cataract.
