Long-term Outcome of Pars Plana Glaucoma Valve Implants in Neovascular Glaucoma of Retinal Vascular Origin: An Asian Experience

Yeo Kim-Teck, MD (Singapore, Singapore), Elaine Hz Huang, MD (Outram, Singapore) PURPOSE: To study the long-term results of pars plana glaucoma valve implants (GDI) in neovascular glaucoma in an Asian series. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed the long-term outcome of 16 eyes from 16 patients with uncontrolled neovascular glaucoma operated between 1997 and 2006. Of these, 13 eyes were secondary to proliferative diabetic retinopathy, 2...
