This video demonstrates a routine trabeculectomy surgery in a 14-year-old young woman with a chronic angle closure glaucoma. A 2.5 mm scleral flap was fashioned in a square shape and a peripheral iridectomy was performed. The scleral flap and the conjunctiva were closed with sutures. The anterior chamber was well formed and the bleb was diffuse at the end of the surgery.
