Background:The purpose of this study was to evaluate the results obtained by using transscleral cyclophotocoagulation (TSCPC) in the treatment of refractory secondary glaucoma. Our study attempted to assess the functional effects of TSCPC in different types of secondary glaucoma.Material/Methods: We studied 83 eyes in 81 patients: 52 men and 29 women, aged 9–88 years old (mean 52.8±21.85). Contact transscleral cyclophotocoagulation was performed with an OcuLight SLx photocoagulator using a G probe. The follow-up period was 12 months. All the eyes were photographed for documentation of details.Results: The mean intraocular pressure (IOP) significantly decreased, from 46±12mmHg at baseline to 18±6.4 mmHg (p
