Study Design: Interventional case series. Place and Duration of Study: Shifa International, between January 2018 to July 2020. Methods: Thirty one patients requiring trabeculectomy or Phaco-trabeculectomy with mitomycin C because of maximum tolerable anti-glaucoma treatment or poor compliance were included in the study. Out of these 15 in group A underwent simple trabeculectomy with intra-operative mitomycin C and 16 patients in group B underwent phacotrabeculectomy with intra-operative mitomycin C and IOL implantation. All patients underwent an eye examination (including IOP and visual acuity) before surgery and then afterwards at 1 week, 1 month, 2 months, 6 months and 1 year.
