The investigators hypothesize that deep sclerectomy in congenital glaucoma is a safer procedure and may yield better results than trabeculotomy trabeculectomy approach.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • reduction in IOP [ Time Frame: 6 month ]
    decrease in the intraocular pressure to the normal limit (<22 - >6) mmHg

Estimated Enrollment: 40
Study Start Date: November 2011
Estimated Study Completion Date: December 2013
Estimated Primary Completion Date: November 2013 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Active Comparator: DS arm
Deep sclerectomy surgery will be conduct in this arm
Procedure: Deep Sclerectomy
Non penetrating glaucoma surgery is a new procedure in adults that has less post operative complications with good results, it is to be applied in children.
Other Name: Non penetrating DS
Active Comparator: Trab arm
combined Trabeculectomy and Trabeculotomy surgery will be conducted in this arm
Procedure: Combined Trab
Combined trabeculectomy and trabeculotomy is a standard surgery for congenital glaucoma, however, it has its known complications.
Other Name: Combined Trabeculectomy Trabeculotomy

Detailed Description:
Non penetrating glaucoma surgery depends on filtration through trabeculo-descmeto window as well as supra-choroidal space less to sub-conjunctival rout. the nature of the operation keeps the globe intact without penetration that leads to less complications compared to penetrating trabeculectomy combined with trabeculotomy.
