ABSTRACT
This article reports that phacoemulsification alone can achieve intraocular pressure (IOP) control in some patients with primary angle-closure glaucoma, according to ophthalmologist Catherine Jui-Ling. At the joint symposium of the Japan and Taiwan Glaucoma Societies, Jui-Ling points out that phaco-trabeculectomy remains necessary for certain cases. She also cited the clinical indication for phaco-trabeculectomy, as well as the results of her study on patients with primary angle-closure glaucoma.
