Despite the advancement in surgical techniques, post-operative shallow anterior chamber (AC) remains a fairly common complication in ocular surgery. Post-operative cases of glaucoma and cataract are commonest, which develop this complication. A shallow anterior chamber invariably causes formation of peripheral anterior synechia, secondary glaucoma, cornea! endothelia! decompensation and cataract. A retrospective study was undertaken to see the incidence of this condition in our own population. The results are compared with that of other studies in western countries.
