Results: The mean age was 45.20 ± 14 years, sex ratio 1.21. The most frequent comorbidity was arterial hypertension 54.76%. Preoperative visual acuity was <1/10 in the right eye in 71.43% and between 1-2/10 in the left eye in 57.14%. Fundus glaucomatous excavation was the most common lesion, 92.5% in the right eye and 85.7% in the left eye. Intraocular pressure was normal in 52.3% in the right eye and in 71.4% in the left eye, the visual field was impaired in 85.71% in the right eye and in 88.1% in the left eye. 'left eye. The surgical act was performed by the same surgeon in 100% of cases.
