ECCE with or without primary PC IOL implantation is safe and curative in patients with phacolytic glaucoma. The addition of trabeculectomy to cataract extraction seems to be superfluous in the control of IOP in patients with phacolytic glaucoma operated on within 2 to 3 weeks of the onset of symptoms. Light perception without projection is not a contraindication for cataract surgery in phacolytic glaucoma.
