"Psychosocial effects of glaucoma drainage device should be considered when counseling patients with glaucoma."
Glaucoma drainage devices (GDDs) have been used successfully in cases of aphakic glaucoma.
Glaucoma drainage devices (GDDs) have the potential to regulate flow consistently, eliminating hypotony after GFS.
Surgical treatment includes procedures used for treating glaucoma (argon laser trabeculoplasty, goniotomy, trabeculotomy, trabeculectomy with or without associated topical antimetabolites, surgery with implantation of glaucoma drainage devices and cyclocryotherapy or cyclophotocoagulation) and a prophylactic procedure (prophylactic goniotomy) [1, 13].

Patient IV-4 (b) at 5 years of age, prior to placement of glaucoma drainage devices, had corneal pannuses with neovascularization (arrows) and corneal epithelial irregularities in both eyes.
Kirkness [31] was the first one to report the use of a glaucoma drainage device for the management of post-PKP glaucoma in the late 80's.

MIGS typically utilizes an ab interno approach, often through a clear corneal incision familiar to most ophthalmic surgeons, thus allowing for minimal tissue disruption, a more favorable risk profile, and faster recovery as compared to conventional trabeculectomy or glaucoma drainage device implantation.
If medical treatment is not sufficient to manage PExG, subsequent interventions are surgical, typically comprising laser trabeculoplasty, trabeculectomy, and the implantation of a glaucoma drainage device [20].
