• Three cases of apparent ciliary block glaucoma occurred in eyes with cicatricial retinopathy of prematurity. The patients were seen initially with angle-closure glaucoma that was relieved with long-term cycloplegic therapy. The apparent ciliary block mechanism was eliminated by vitreous aspiration or lens removal.
