Abstract

INTRODUCTION: The surgical management of glaucoma has evolved over time. CASE REPORT: This report describes the first ever case, to our knowledge, of bilateral Scheie's procedures performed with retention of an ophthalmic viscoelastic device and intraoperative and post-operative 5-fluorouracil injections. DISCUSSION: These procedures have now successfully controlled the intraocular pressure in both of the patient's eyes for more than 17 years.
