  Glaucoma is one of the most common ocular condition if not diagnosed or managed in time can cause irreversible blindness however it's early diagnosis and management is very essential to ensure normal status of vision.

In past prognosis of this disease in underdeveloped countries was not good due to lack of education and paucity of ophthalmologist.

However at present because of education awareness and recent advances in ophthalmology and drugs prognosis of glaucoma is very satisfactory.

  We also do glaucoma screening after 40 years of age here we randomly do the measurement of IOP refraction and fundus examination of every patient after 40 years and by this type of screening we do pick up case.

Clinical classification of glaucoma is very important for understanding it's genesis:

  • Infantile glaucoma: Occurs during intrauterine life. Infantile glaucoma from birth to 3rd decade of life.
  • Juvenile glaucoma: From 3rd decade to17 years.

Primary glaucoma can be open angle or chronic simple. It can be closed angle:

  • A congestive glaucoma.
  • A A C glaucoma chronic creeping.
  • A C glaucoma.

Secondary glaucoma can be ocular hypertension normal tension glaucoma, low tension glaucoma, neovascular glaucoma, pigmentary glaucoma, pseudo exfoliation glaucoma, aphakic glaucoma.
