Abstract

We have developed a simple, safe, and effective procedure for repairing inadvertent filtering blebs after cataract surgery with several interrupted 7-0 or 8-0 silk sutures placed externally over the bleb and through the wound cleft, and without opening the conjunctiva or the anterior chamber. We have treated more than 20 eyes successfully with this method.
