|Abstract:||Previously published papers on the success of trabeculectomy as a treatment for glaucoma show success rates between 67% and 84%. The success rate of trabeculectomy in Afro-Carribean patients was observed to be lower than in Caucasian patients. It has been commonly believed that the success rate of trabeculectomy in Oriental/Asian eyes would lie somewhere between these. We reviewed the records of 51 consecutive trabeculectomies performed in the National University Hospital, Singapore and found that our success rate was lower - 43.1% overall and 48.7% for primary glaucomas.|
