Angle surgery is often performed for pediatric glaucomas. Here we report visually significant hyphema and "spill-over" vitreous hemorrhage after trabeculotomy performed for aphakic glaucoma. Vitrectomy was necessary to remove the persistent vitreous blood in 2 of the 3 cases. We suspect this risk may be greater in aphakic eyes and propose measures to minimize this potentially amblyogenic complication.
