Appearance After Iridencleisis

In 1959 this patient had an acute attack of angle closure at the age of 19 and underwent an iridencleisis in both eyes. One can see that there is a superior sector iridectomy through which iris is sutured into the full filtering site and can be seen subconjunctivally. On gonioscopy one can see iris into the sclerostomy site.
