Active Comparator: Bevacizumab
subjects will receive 1.0mg (0.04cc of 25 mg/ml) subconjunctival bevacizumab either temporal or nasal to the bleb following bleb needling procedure in addition to 0.1 cc mitomycin C.

Other Name: Avastin
Placebo Comparator: balanced salt solution
patients randomized to treatment B are given 0.04cc of balanced salt solution injected in identical fashion either temporal or nasal to the bleb following bleb needling procedure in addition to 0.1 cc mitomycin C.
Other: balanced salt solution
0.04 cc of balanced salt solution injected to the bleb following bleb needling procedure
- Intraocular Pressure (IOP) [ Time Frame: 6 months ]mmHg (millimeters of mercury)
- Surgical Success Rates [ Time Frame: 6 months ]Surgery was rated as complete success, qualified success or failure. Complete success was defined as 20% (percent) reduction in eye pressure (IOP) without any IOP lowering medications. Qualified success was defined as 20% reduction of IOP with IOP lowering medications. Failure was defined as IOP greater than 21 mmHG (millimeters of mercury), less than 20% IOP reduction or need for additional surgery.
