A 64-year-old gentleman presented with visual acuity of 20/40 in the right eye (RE) and 20/20 in the left eye (LE). Slit-lamp examination showed neovascularization of iris in both eyes with an intraocular pressure (IOP) of 32 and 16 mmHg in the RE and LE, respectively. Gonioscopy showed open angles in both eyes with neovascularization of the angle in the RE [Figure 1]a. Fundus examination showed hemorrhage and new vessels in the retina, suggestive of proliferative diabetic retinopathy. He underwent intravitreal injection of ranibizumab and panretinal photocoagulation. At the final follow-up, IOP was 16 mmHg on two antiglaucoma medications with the resolution of angle new vessels in the RE [Figure 1]b. Early detection and prompt treatment for angle new vessel will prevent synechiae formation and refractory glaucoma.,
