Abstract

The outcomes of phacoemulsification combined with trabectome surgery was analyzed using a glaucoma severity index based on preoperative intraocular pressure (IOP), number of preoperative medications, and visual field damage. Despite a less absolute indication to lower IOP, a substantial pressure reduction was seen in patients with more advanced glaucoma.
