Abstract

Aim: To report the clinical outcome of 3 patients with iridocorneal endothelial syndrome who underwent goniotomy for the management of elevated intraocular pressure. Methods: This was a single-centre retrospective case series of adult patients with uncontrolled glaucoma. Three female patients with iridocorneal endothelial syndrome underwent goniotomy. Results: Goniotomy successfully reduced intraocular pressure in all 3 patients for a mean follow-up period of 52.3 months (SD, 38.4 months; range, 8 to 77 months). One patient eventually required a glaucoma drainage device for intraocular pressure control. Conclusion: Goniotomy is a potentially useful surgical technique for reducing intraocular pressure in eyes with iridocorneal endothelial syndrome.
