AbstractBackground - The treatment for infantile glaucoma is surgical. Treatment options include goniotomy, trabeculotomy, combined trabeculotomy-trabeculectomy, and trabeculectomy. Methods - Patients who had a follow up of 5 years or longer after primary trabeculectomy were examined to determine the long term stability in infantile glaucoma. Results - In eyes with primary infantile glaucoma 92.3% achieved control of their glaucoma with a single trabeculectomy; 100% achieved control with two trabeculectomies; 85.7% of eyes with secondary infantile glaucoma achieved control with a single trabeculectomy. There were no serious complications experienced in either group. Conclusion - Primary trabeculectomy is a safe and successful operation for infantile glaucoma.
