  1. The Trabeculotomy is non ivasive as trabeculectomy .Easy to approach .if failure next chance of trabeculectomy remained.

    1. Trabeculotomy and trabeculectomy are equally invasive. Trabeculectomy has the long-term associated complication risk of bleb leaks and endophthalmitis. The shape of the flap does not matter… triangular, square, rectangular all work well. A wider rectangular or square flap may be preferrable if one needs to do a second cut-down site to Schlemm’s canal.
