Surgical management of coincident cataract and glaucoma.

Author information

Phillips Eye Institute, Minneapolis 55404, USA.


Surgical management of coincident cataract and glaucoma has become very common for ophthalmic surgeons. As the medical options continue to improve, many patients with glaucoma do not require surgical intervention until the time of cataract extraction. Therefore, combined glaucoma procedures are becoming increasingly common. With the advent of small-incision phacoemulsification and trabeculectomy with releasable sutures and antimetabolites, techniques have improved considerably in the recent decade. This article discusses many of the important topics as they relate to this subject. It is not a comprehensive review, but rather discusses the literature over the scanning period of this periodical.
