Over the next 18 months, the patient underwent 360 degrees of unsuccessful trabeculotomy on each eye followed by uncomplicated placement of Baerveldt implants in both eyes and a bilateral medial rectus recession. Throughout the course of these interventions, her vision continued to improve and her exam stabilized. Her IOP 18 months after presentation was 10-12 mmHg OD and 15-17 mmHg OS. The cup-to-disc ratio was 0.4-0.6 OU, and her refraction was –4.00 +1.00 x180 OD and –5.00 +2.00 x180 OS. Visual acuity using HOTV optotypes was 20/70 OU, and the AHP, nystagmus and esotropia were decreased.
