Types of Glaucoma
There are several type of glaucoma, each has its own ways of treatment
THERE ARE TWO MAIN SUB-GROUPS OF PRIMARY GLAUCOMA:
1- Open Angle GLaucoma
(also known as closed angle glaucoma): occurs more rapidly when the flow of fluid inside the eye cannot pass through the
narrow angle in the front of the eye, where drainage usually
occurs, causing a rapid rise in pressure inside the eye.
THERE ARE OTHER 2 ENTITIES WITH SOME RESEMBLANCE TO GLAUCOMA
THERE ARE SOME EYE DISEASES WHICH CAN RESULT IN SECONDARY GLAUCOMA
In some rather rare instances, glaucoma can occur in young infants. This is called congenital glaucoma and can be inherited. This type of glaucoma can be devastating if not diagnosed and operated early enough.
