A 60-year-old male presented with defective vision and low intraocular pressure (IOP) in the left eye (LE) following cataract surgery combined with aqueous drainage implant which was done elsewhere 2 months ago. In the right eye (RE), he presented with primary angle closure glaucoma and Grade 2 nuclear sclerosis. In LE, scleral patch graft with loose sutures with shallow anterior chamber and nonvalved aqueous drainage implant with fundus features suggestive of hypotony maculopathy were noted. The patient underwent tight compression suturing of scleral patch graft with intracameral sodium hyaluronate injection for LE and clear corneal phacoemulsification with trabeculectomy with releasable sutures with Mitomycin-C 0.02% for RE. Postoperatively, visual acuity and IOP in LE were improved and in RE postoperative outcome was successful with no complications.
