Minimally invasive glaucoma surgery (MIGS) is usually preferred as it causes less complications in glaucoma surgery. XEN Glaucoma Gel Microstent (XEN-GGM, Allergan Plc., Parsippany, New Jersey) is one of the MIGS used in glaucoma surgery. Different complications of XEN-GGM that developed during or after the operation have been reported. In our case, anterior capsule perforation occurred and a cataract consequently developed during the XEN-GGM application. For this reason, the measures that must be taken during XEN-GGM application in phakic patients are discussed.
