Valved Glaucoma Drainage Devices like Ahmed Glaucoma Valve (AGV) are prone to bleb encapsulation around the endplate with subsequent uncontrolled intraocular pressure. Aqueous suppression may or may not lead to resolution and the valve may eventually fail. We report the management in a series of 3 eyes of 3 patients who had failed AGV surgery and after receiving transscleral diode cyclophotocoagulation (TSCPC) treatment, presented with hypotony and decreased vision.
