Results : in 16 eyes with trabeculotomy 10 eyes (62.50%) have controlled IOP with and without medication 4 eyes (31.25%) undergone Trabeculectomy with MMC or 5FU have contolled IOP, 2 eyes (6.25%) have no response to surgery so cyclocryo was for them.
Conclusion : for controllong the IOP in congenital glaucoma the best procedure is trabeculotomy or trabeclectomy with 5FU or MMC , according to patient’s condition we can repeat the surgery
