Abstract The Posner-Schlossman syndrome (PSS) is an elusive disease that can lead to serious consequences such as glaucomatous damage. Deep sclerectomy has been proven thus far to be the most effective surgical intervention to keep intraocular pressure (IOP) elevation under control compared with other surgical techniques, because it presents the least amount of postoperative complications. The aim of this case report is to demonstrate the efficacy of deep sclerectomy with T-Flux and the long-lasting effects that persist after 7 years in an eye affected by PSS. This case report demonstrates that an intervention of deep sclerectomy can lead to excellent results in terms of visual acuity as well as IOP lowering early in the history of the patient affected by PSS so that it can preclude establishment of glaucomatous damage.

Abstract

Abstract The Posner-Schlossman syndrome (PSS) is an elusive disease that can lead to serious consequences such as glaucomatous damage. Deep sclerectomy has been proven thus far to be the most effective surgical intervention to keep intraocular pressure (IOP) elevation under control compared with other surgical techniques, because it presents the least amount of postoperative complications. The aim of this case report is to demonstrate the efficacy of deep sclerectomy with T-Flux and the long-lasting effects that persist after 7 years in an eye affected by PSS. This case report demonstrates that an intervention of deep sclerectomy can lead to excellent results in terms of visual acuity as well as IOP lowering early in the history of the patient affected by PSS so that it can preclude establishment of glaucomatous damage.
