In aniridia patients with glaucoma, the anterior chamber angle usually is open, with increased resistance of aqueous flow through the conventional outflow pathway from the trabecular meshwork into Schlemm’s canal. Onset of glaucoma in infancy in aniridia is uncommon, and may involve iridotrabeculodysgenesis, absence of Schlemm’s canal, or other mechanisms [3, 4]. The angle may be closed in aniridic patients when the stump of residual iris covers the trabecular meshwork in the anterior chamber angle.

Right) No angle structures or patent glaucoma drainage implant tube are visible in the anterior segment OCT image. Note the dense retroprosthetic membrane, which is in contact with the ciliary body time. We have observed obstruction of glaucoma drainage implant tubes in patients who have developed aniridia fibrosis syndrome (Fig. 3).
