AimTo compare the effect on intraocular pressure (IOP) of large vssmall scleral flap size during trabeculectomy using adjustable suturesMethodsTrabeculectomy operations were performed on nine donor human eyes connected to a constant flow infusion with real-time IOP monitoring. Large scleral flaps (4 × 4 mm, 16 mm2, n=12) or small scleral flaps (3 × 2 mm, 6 mm2, n=9) were constructed over 0.76 mm2 sclerostomies. For each procedure, equilibrium IOP was measured following tight closure with two… CONTINUE READING
