    Bleb Morphology After Mitomycin-C Augmented Trabeculectomy – Comparison between Clinical Evaluation and Anterior Segment Optical Coherence Tomography

    Purpose: To study the longitudinal correlation between the clinical morphological appearance of filtering blebs with anterior segment optical coherence tomography (AS-OCT) in the early postoperative period. Methods: Thirty eyes of 30 glaucoma patients scheduled for first-time trabeculectomy with mitomycin C 0.02% were consecutively enrolled. The filtering blebs were evaluated clinically according to a grading system and with AS-OCT at day 1 and weeks 1, 2, 3, 4 and 12 following surgery. Bleb wall thickness (BWT) and bleb cavity height (BCH) were analyzed by means of horizontal and vertical AS-OCT-scans. Results: Nineteen eyes (63%) had functioning blebs without any further ...
