A 65-year male presented with ocular hypotony after 8 months of glaucoma filtration surgery with 0.2 mg/ml Mitomycin -C in the left eye (OS). His best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA) and IOP were 20/30 and 4 mmHg in OS, respectively. Slit-lamp examination revealed overfiltering bleb, negative Siedel test with shallow anterior chamber. Fundus evaluation revealed a cup/disc ratio of 0.9 with 360° peripheral choroidal detachments [Figure 1]. He was treated conservatively with systemic and topical corticosteroids. Hypotony is a sight-threatening complication following glaucoma filtration surgery with a reported incidence rate between 1.3% and 18%.[1],[2] Bleb leak, an important risk factor, was ruled out in our case.[3] Though the majority of the cases improved with conservative management, wide-angle fundus imaging helps in patient counselling in these cases.
