Description To evaluate the long compensation and efficacy after non-penetrating deep sclerectomy using different types of implants. Patients were divided i 3 groups: deep sc lerectomy without implant (DS): 34 eyes, Deep sclerectomy with collagen implant: 31 eyes and deep sclerectomy with T-flux implant: 27 eyes. Follow-up period was 36-134 months. Complete success rate was 0 / 7,1 / 18% at 96 months. Qualified success rate was 87,5 / 89,5 / 100% at 96 months. Conclusion: Deep sclerectomy is a good surgical technique to reduce the IOL in patients with glaucoma. Use of T-flux implant provides the best results in our groups.
