Abstract: We reported 2 cases of refractory residual angle closure glaucoma patients aged over 50 years with small pupil, severe flat anterior chamber and lens opacification, and more than 5 years after laser peripheral iridotomy (LPI) or iridoectomy. The purpose of this case discusion is to pay attention to long-term follow-up of primary angle-closure patient after LPI, to promote personalized treatment for residual glaucoma, and to present our experience of cataract surgery in patients with small pupil and severe flat anterior chamber.
