large eyes in congenital glaucoma

Treament of glaucoma in the infant

or congenital glaucoma is essentially surgical, with surgeries espicially meant for these young eyes and their particular glaucoma conditioon.

Mediacal therapy (using glaucoma eye drops) in congenital glaucoma can not be used for any prolonged duration for several reasons; their weak efficacy in this young age group and potential major side effects on the general health. Furthermore, there is no sufficient long-term studies on their role in scientific literature.

Surgery for Congenital glaucoma

Conventional techniques of glaucoma surgery used in adults have a very low success rate when used in children. The use of certain chemicals to augment the success of these surgerries, though effective for a short term, leads to significant side effects later on in life.
