    Drs. Ferchichi Molka and Monia Cheour share a case of a 4-year-old girl with Peters anomaly who presented with significant visual loss and ocular hypertension. After completing a penetrating keratoplasty, the surgeons address the iridocorneal adhesion by performing a synechialysis with a crescent blade to release the iris from the cornea and preserve the integrity of the iris. They conclude the case with a trabeculectomy. One year postoperatively, no iridocorneal synechia was noted.
