As advocated by Chandler, the vitreous was incised through the perilenticular space in nine cases of malignant glaucoma. In eight of them, the anterior chamber was well formed with reduction in tension. One to nine months follow-up examination showed no serious complication such as injury to the lens or detachment of the retina.
