    A study of the postoperative evolution of 70 eyes subjected to trabeculectomy over a 3-year period is reported. This is the operation of choice in our department in cases of chronic open-angle glaucoma and chronic angle-closure glaucoma. The study showed that in 35.7% of the operated eyes the intraocular pressure was increased on the second postoperative day and became normal within a week. This raised intraocular pressure did not influence the final result of the operation.
