  • Look Inside

We observed three eyes which developed malignant glaucoma following surgery for chronic primary angle closure glaucoma. All the eyes had received laser iridotomy to relieve pupillary block prior to surgery comprising phacoemulsification and aspiration with intraocular lens implantation. Two eyes were treated by additional trabeculotomy, goniosynechialysis and peripheral iridectomy. After onset of malignant glaucoma, all the eyes were treated by YAG laser capsulotomy and anterior hyaloidotomy. Additional surgical manipulations were necessary because of goniosynechia and possible obstruction of the physiological route of aqueous outflow.
