Abstract The authors followed the collection of 77 eyes with glaucoma (54 eyes with POAG, 16 eyes with PACG and 7 eyes with CG) after ECCE or phacoemulsification with implantation of IOL. The patients were operated in 1990-1991 at the Ophthalmological Clinic FNKV and 3rd Medical Faculty in Prague. The authors evaluated IOP, therapy and visual acuity 6 weeks and 6 months after operation. After 6 months period IOP was decreased in average about 3 mmHg; in POAG the reduction was 1.9 mmHg and in PACG the reduction was 4.7 mmHg. In this time the authors also registered decreasing antiglaucomatous therapy at 38 eyes (i.e. 49.3\% operated eyes). The reducing therapy represents 50\% eyes with POAG and 69\% eyes with PACG. The visual acuity is in 70\% 6/6-6/12. Patients with PACG have more expressive postoperative effect. The authors draw the attention to late diagnosis CG, after successful operation the visual acuity is reduced on account of advanced changes of the optic disc.
