Dysesthetic blebs can complicate filtration surgery. Lubrication often reduces symptoms; however, some cases require surgical intervention. Limited conjunctivoplasty reduces the symptoms of dysesthetic blebs without sacrificing control of intraocular pressure (IOP). However, this may not sufficiently lower these blebs, particularly if the bleb is thick and dense. We describe a ...
