Abstract

Purpose: Whereas achieving intraocular pressure (IOP) targets ≤ 10mm Hg typically requires surgical intervention, we sought to examine the safety and efficacy of trabeculectomy in normal-tension glaucoma (NTG). Methods: Patients with progressive NTG undergoing trabeculectomy with preoperative IOP ≤15mm Hg during the 12-month period before surgery were identified at a single academic institution. Failure was defined as IOP reduction
