In a case of severe posttraumic glaucoma with a valve implant, a secondary ocular hypotony was developed. To treat this serious condition, a polypropylene suture was inserted into the tube of the Ahmed valve. To achieve the complete occlusion of the valve tube, the end part of the suture was reshaped by applying laser through the tube. This new technique is reversible.
