Congenital glaucoma

Congenital glaucoma: Introduction

Congenital glaucoma: Primary congenital glaucoma is present at birth; however, its manifestations may not be recognized until infancy or early childhood. It is characterized by improper development of the eye's aqueous outflow system, leading to increased intraocular pressure (IOP), with consequent damage to ocular structures, resulting in loss of vision. More detailed information about the symptoms, causes, and treatments of Congenital glaucoma is available below.
