OBJECTIVE To determine the relative effectiveness of neodymium:YAG cyclophotocoagulation (NCYC) and pars plana modified Baerveldt implant (PPBI) surgery on intraocular pressure (IOP) control in eyes with neovascular glaucoma (NVG). PARTICIPANTS In this retrospective comparative group study, 30 patients with NVG treated with contact NCYC were compared with 18 patients who underwent PPBI. Patients groups were not statistically dissimilar with respect to the underlying disorder-causing angle and… CONTINUE READING
