Speakers and Topics: Trabeculectomy is commonly performed in patients with medically uncontrolled glaucoma. The introduction of antiftbrotic agents such as mitomycin-C and 5-?uorouracil, which are used as adjuncts to trabeculectomy to decrease bleb scarring, has been associated with increased rates of postoperative ocular hypotony deftned as intraocular pressure ?5mmHg three months or later postoperatively. Proposed risk factors for postoperative ocular hypotony include young age, myopia, preoperative glaucoma medication use, surgeon, laterality of surgery. In this presentation, a case of ocular hypotony is reviewed and discussed.
