Megalocornea and megalophthalmos are bilateral developmental anomaly of the anterior segment of the eye. Either of these conditions has a high risk of developing glaucoma. We report the rare case in a 9-year-old child with simple megalocornea in one eye and megalophthalmos in other eye. He has increased corneal diameter in both the eyes and iris stromal hypotrophy exposing the radial vessels, raised intraocular pressure (IOP), and optic nerve head cupping in the left eye (LE). LE trabeculectomy with Ologen was performed. Postoperative IOP was well controlled at 1-year follow-up with favorable bleb morphology.
