To assess outcome of stab incision glaucoma surgery (SIGS) with and without phacoemulsification.

Eighty-five patients were included in this study. All underwent SIGS either alone or in combination with phacoemulsification. Minimum follow up of 1.5 years was obtained.

IOP and ASOCT were measured. Good results were obtained. Intra and post-operative complications were analyzed. Final results will be revised by deadline to be included in abstract CD and online.

Stab incision glaucoma surgery or SIGS is a new guarded filtration procedure with effective and safe results and may be done in isolation or in combination with phacoemulsification.
