Abstract
We report the use of bevacizumab (Avastin) as an additional strategy in angle closure glaucoma based on the case of 47 years old male qualified to cataract removal as anti-glaucoma procedure in whom we observed iris and lens neovascularization. As a first step we administered 1.25 mg of bevacizumab into the anterior chamber. Iris as well as lens neovasularization completely disappeared 48 hours later. Finally after lens removal we achieved deeper anterior chamber, reduction and stabilization of intraocular pressure without necessity of hipotensive agent?s administration and improvement of visual acuity.
