Abstract

Purpose

Management of a case of glaucoma secondary to an iris metastasis is reported.

Results

A 31-year-old woman developed glaucoma secondary to a metastatic tumor to the iris. Anti-glaucoma medication tailed to control the increase in intraocular pressure (IOP). However, diode laser cyclophotocoagulation controlled the IOP.

Conclusion

Glaucoma secondary to an iris metastasis is difficult to manage. Diode laser cyclophotocoagulation is effective in controlling the increase in IOP without affecting visual acuity.
