Glaucoma is a common, blinding disease with characteristic vision loss and damage to the optic nerve. Intraocular pressure is the only known modifiable risk factor for the disease, and thus treatment centers on pressure reduction. Topical eye drops, laser treatments, and surgery have been employed for this purpose. Glaucoma drainage devices have found an increasing role in the treatment algorithm of glaucoma, and are generally well tolerated. Much like any other intervention, however, surgical complications – both intraoperative and postoperative, are not infrequent and glaucoma specialists must be adept at dealing with these issues. We herein report an undescribed post-operative complication of a non-valved glaucoma drainage device, the Baerveldt drainage implant (AMO, Santa Clara, CA).
