Abstract

An 18-year-old man with primary congenital glaucoma and buphthalmos in both eyes presented with unilateral, sudden-onset, painless vision loss. He had previously undergone multiple sectoral ab externo rigid-probe trabeculotomy in both eyes and subsequently Baervelt glaucoma implantion in both eyes, with adequate intraocular pressure control. Examination revealed subfoveal choroidal neovascular membrane (CNVM) and associated hemorrhages in the right eye. He was treated with 3 consecutive, monthly, intravitreal injections of bevacizumab and recovered baseline vision.[Formula presented]
