However, the IOP findings were only significant at a few time points, and the increase in post-operative complications in the trabeculectomy group were due to the trabeculectomy part of the procedure . Currently, the long-term results of phacoemulsification alone versus phaco-trabeculectomy are not known. 4 The Timing of Lens Extraction Controversy surrounds the optimal timing of lens extraction in both acute and chronic PACG.

In recent years, further evidence has emerged to incorporate goniosynechialysis (GSL) with cataract surgery . In this procedure, PAS are stripped manually under gonioscopic view. This can be performed either directly, using a blunt spatula, or via the application of viscoelastic (also known as viscogonioplasty, VGP), delicately avoiding potential complications such as bleeding, iridodialysis, and fibrinous uveitis. GSL is thought to be most effective in patients where PAS has been present for less than 6–12 months .
