Several studies have confirmed high levels of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) in eyes with neovascular glaucoma (NVG). The role of VEGF inhibitors in regression of other neovascular disorders such as wet-type age-related macular degeneration and diabetic macular edema has been described. We aim to evaluate the effect of three intravitreal injections of bevacizumab (Avastin) 2.5 mg versus a sham procedure for treatment of NVG. Outcome measures include intraocular pressure and extent of iris neovascularization. Both study arms will receive conventional treatment for NVG.

A form of secondary glaucoma which develops as a consequence of another ocular disease and is attributed to the forming of new vessels in the angle of the anterior chamber.
A highly contagious disease characterized by subconjunctival hemorrhage, sudden swelling of the eyelids and congestion, redness, and pain in the eye. Epidemic conjunctivitis caused by Enterovirus 70 (EV-70) was first described in Africa in 1969. It is caused also by Coxsackievirus A24 variant (CA24v). Epidemics by this organism have appeared most frequently in Asia.
