  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

We treated 15 eyes of flat anterior chamber after trabeculectomy. Five eyes received injection of sodium hyaluronate into the anterior chamber. The anterior chamber was reformed after an average of 2.2 days. The other 10 eyes were treated by pressure bandage. The anterior chamber was reformed after an average of 3.5 days. There was no significant difference in the intraocular pressure between the two groups 4 months later. Corneal endothelial cell population was significantly decreased in the pressure bandage group and not in the hyaluronate group. The findings show the safety and effectiveness of injection of sodium hyaluronate in the treatment of flat anterior chamber after trabeculectomy.
