We treated 54 eyes of 51 patients with refractory glaucoma by using contact transscleral Neodymium: YAG laser cyclophotocoagulation; 32 burns (7 watts during 0.7 second) were applied to each eye by positionning the anterior edge of the probe at 0.5 to 1 mm from the limbus. The mean preoperative intraocular pressure (IOP) was 33.7 mmHg and the mean postoperative IOP was 25.6 mmHg with a follow-up of five months. There was a decrease of IOP in 72.3% of the cases. The postoperative IOP was controlled (IOP < 21 mmHg) in 41.3% of the treated eyes.
