Abstract: Among 100 cases of primary glaucomas, 50 cases were operated for trabeculectomy by making fornix based flap and 50 cases were operated by fashioning limbal based conjunctival flap. Operative and post operative complications were studied thoroughly in the two groups. All the cases were followed up for six months to one year to assess control of intra ocular pressure, nature and functioning of filtering bleb, field changes and visual status in the two groups. It was found that the fornix based flap is much superior and carries various advantages over the limbal based flap. The operative and post operative complications are minimum in the fornix based flap as compared to the limbal based flap.
