Andres Alza, MD, and Eduardo Galletto, MD, present the case of a 90-year-old patient who presented with cataracts, glaucoma, and inactive uveitis in both eyes. This patient was diagnosed with glaucoma and cataract, but decided not to undergo surgery because of high surgical risk for the eye. At the time of the consultation the patient showed pupillary seclusion, but no peripheral iridotomy was done. The surgeons decided to conduct an emergency surgery combining penetrating trabeculectomy with phacoemulsification and IOL implantation as well as application in sub-Tenon's triamcinolone injection. As of the date this video was created, the patient shows no eye uveitis and has good vision and good eye pressure.
