In 364 patients with filtering conjunctival blebs, the incidence and outcome of exogenous late infections were determined. The rate was lowest among patients who had undergone Scheie's procedure. After treatment, the visual acuity in 62.5% of the infected cases was the same as before the infection occurred.
