Abstract

We report a case of choroidal effusion after ocular massage following uncomplicated phacotrabeculectomy for chronic angle-closure glaucoma. Flap suturelysis and ocular massage are frequently used to manage underfiltration in the early post-trabeculectomy period. They are not without risk however. Malignant glaucoma has been reported following suturelysis.
