An asymptomatic 3-year-old child presented with megalocornea, mild corneal haze, high intraocular pressure, and advanced optic disc damage in both eyes. The child was taken up for trabeculectomy and trabeculotomy in the right eye and trabeculectomy alone in the left eye. Due to the failure of the procedure in the right eye, Aurolab aqueous drainage implant was placed. The asymptomatic nature of the child led to the late presentation with advanced disc damage. Therefore, awareness of subtle signs of congenital glaucoma is crucial among the pediatricians for proper screening and referral.
