Abstract

Patients treated by trabeculectomy and those receiving topical latanoprost and brimonidine had lower IOP and higher POBF following treatment. The betaxolol-treated group, despite a slight decrease in IOP, had a decreased POBF. Lowering IOP by treatment may not necessarily be associated with an increase in POBF.
