ABSTRACT

Objective: It is a common disease in clinic treatment and the vision of patients cannot be effectively improved simply by the glaucoma surgery.

Methods: By retrospectively analyzing the clinical data of treating 40 cases (48 eyes) of cataract combined with glaucoma by the combined phacoemulsification and trabeculectomy, this paper is to discuss the clinical effect on cataract combined with glaucoma treatment by applying the combined phacoemulsification and trabeculectomy.

Results: After the treatment of patients, their intraocular pressure and anterior chamber depth were well recovered, the vision was significantly improved and the postoperative morbidity was only 10.42%.

Conclusion: It can be seen that the combined phacoemulsification and trabeculectomy is an effective way to treat the cataract combined with glaucoma with a more ideal therapeutic effect.
