Essential iris atrophy (EIA) is one of the most common irido-corneal endothelial syndromes, predominantly characterised by progressive iris stromal atrophy leading to iris hole formation and secondary glaucoma. Predominantly unilateral in affection, glaucoma is refractory to both medical and surgical management. We hereby report a rare case of association of EIA with primary open angle glaucoma (POAG). Glaucoma progressed with the maximum medical treatment and surgical intervention. Micro-pulse diode laser transcleral cyclophotocoagulation (MP-TSCPC) proves effective in control of intra-ocular pressure (IOP) in refractory glaucomas, especially in eyes with good central vision.
