Outcome of Conventional Trabeculectomy in Terms of Intraocular Pressure and Visual Acuity in Primary Open Angle Glaucoma

Purpose: To determine the outcomes of conventional trabeculectomy in terms of decrease in Intra Ocular Pressure (IOP) and improvement in visual acuity in patients of primary open glaucoma, coming to a tertiary care hospital. Study Design: Retrospective case series. Place and Duration of Study: Ophthalmology department of a tertiary care hospital from January 2017 to December 2018. Methods: Patients undergoing trabeculectomy for Primary open angle glaucoma were included. Patients with repeated trabeculectomy, failed argon laser trabeculoplasty, advance cataract, corneal opacities and absolute glaucoma were excluded. All the trabeculectomies were done under retrobulbar anaesthesia after taking all aseptic measures. Primary outcome measures were preoperative and postoperative visual acuity, intraocular pressure, number of antiglaucoma medications and failed or successful trabeculectomy.
