Abstract

Taking back to the history of glaucoma surgery, Albrecht von Graefe was the first to use surgery to lower intraocular pressure in 1856. He discovered iridectomy was an effective surgical method for acute glaucoma treatment. On September 13 in 1857 he reported his findings at the first International Congress of Ophthalmology held in Brussels. His dissemination of the technique established iridectomy, as an important treatment still used today for angle closure glaucoma.
