The purpose of this study was to retrospectively explore the results of surgical intervention for glaucoma after congenital cataract surgery in Egypt. The study included 41 eyes of 32 children with glaucoma after cataract surgery – 57 procedures; 90% having combined procedures. There was an initial significant decline of mean IOP in the early postoperative months that showed a gradual rise over time. Cup-disc ratio showed initial mild decrease in the early postoperative months which was sustained. Successful outcome was obtained in 83%. Complications included endophthalmitis, hypotony disc oedema and retinal detachment.
