Purpose: Objectives: Objectives To determine the long-term effects of glaucoma treatment in patients with congenital ectropion uveae over a period of three decades at a single large referral tertiary eye care center. Resultation A total of 26 eyes of 21 patients were identified with a median age of 7 years at the time of glaucoma surgery. Primary CTT was administered in 17 eyes, trabeculectomy in 5 eyes with the use of MMC in 2 eyes, and 3 eyes underwent TSCPC. Mean IOP decreased from 30. 8 mmHg on a mean of 1. 3 0. 8 mmHg to a mean IOP of 15. 2 mmHg on a mean of 0. 2 mmHg postoperatively at the final follow-up. Trabeculectomy with or without adjuvant MMC is a cost-effective second line of care in late-onset glaucoma with CEU involvement.

In a case of bilateral CEU with advanced glaucoma, the article seeks to assess the long-term outcomes and complications between the two eyes after different surgical approaches. a case description The patient was a 20-year-old male with bilateral CEU and glaucoma. The intraocular pressure was 48 mm Hg in the right eye and 52 mm Hg in the left eye. The IOP was significantly reduced after an OS-based CO2 laser-assisted sclerectomy surgery, which was done with great success. After MAT, the Shallow anterior chamber and complicated cataract developed in OS after CLASS, but there was no obvious late complication in OD after MAT. Conclusions This was the first attempt to perform two separate surgeries, CLASS and MAT, in both eyes of a single patient with bilateral CEU with glaucoma. CLASS and MAT can be regarded as viable surgical options for the care of such patients.

Purpose: Objective Objectives: To investigate the possibility of osseous medial canthal fixation for severe medial ectropion. Conclusions The modified medial ectropion repair, particularly cicatricial and paralytic ectropion, has been a safe alternative to traditional repair methods and does not need to use anchoring devices such as wire or microplates.
