Abstract Neovascular glaucoma develops on a background of ischemic ocular pathologies, such as diabetic eye diseases or central retinal vein occlusion. Development of neovascular membranes in the chamber angle leads to elevated intraocular pressure (IOP). Since cyclodestructive therapy or drainage surgery often fails, we have examined intense antiproliferative surgery as a treatment for advanced neovascular glaucoma.
