Abstract Glaucoma is the leading cause of irreversible blindness worldwide. East Asians account for approximately half of all glaucoma sufferers. It is likely that trabeculectomy will be needed for many of these people as the intraocular pressure is to be maintained at a satisfactorily low level. The eyes of East Asian people differ in some aspects from those of other races. This review describes the natural history of the eye after trabeculectomy in East Asians.
