            Juvenile Glaucoma is a kind of primary open angle glaucoma with increase of intraocular pressure and usually found in patients with age 4 until 35 years old. A billateral chronic optic neuropathy in juvenile glaucoma very possible to cause blindness. Trabeculectomy are recomended as a succesful surgery treatment in juvenile glaucoma. This research is a descriptive. Data were collected retrospectively based on the medical records of patients who underwent trabeculectomy in Sanglah Hospital period January 1, 2014 through December 31, 2015. Data on the characteristics of the subjects analyzed descriptively, shown as frequency, percentage, mean and standard deviation. Improvement of visual acuity and intraocular pressure were analyzed by repeated measurement ANOVA. A total number of 20 eyes of 14 patient were included in this study. The majority of patients were male (57.1%), a mean of age 20.21 ± 9.34, almost all located in the city of Denpasar, the majority type of work is student (64%), and a mean of Cup-disc ratio 0.79 ± 0.16. There is no difference between the average visual acuity at different measurement time (p=0,374). There is a difference between the mean intraocular pressure in the different measurement time (p=0,000). There is no improvement of visual acuity and there is a improvement of intraocular pressure after the trabeculectomy in patients with juvenile glaucoma.
