“Phacoemulsification typically results in … marked reductions of IOP and medications for patients with …PACG, and using 1 to 2 medications before surgery… However, reports on its effects in eyes with advanced disease or poor IOP control before surgery are few, particularly for POAG and PXG” . “Lens extraction may be combined with procedures such as goniosynechialysis, trabeculectomy or endoscopic cyclophotocoagulation… These procedures should be combined with phaco/IOL. APAC produces a substantial financial burden. Reduction of cost of medication is a useful approach for reducing the total cost of treatment. … Life expectancy and the patient’s overall health status should also be taken into account when considering different treatment opinions” .
