    Glaucoma

    Thin cystic blebs can rupture, leading to shallowing and flattening of the anterior chamber. Necrosis of the scleral flap requires repair of the bleb by either autograft or donor sclera.In this video presentation, the authors demonstrate a technique of scleral autograft for scleral flap necrosis and thinned out underlying sclera. Intraoperative use of trypan blue is also demonstrated to identify areas of micropuncture away from the bleb site.
