Congenital glaucoma (0)

By definition, 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. Although the disease is relatively rare, the impact on visual development can be extreme. Early recognition and appropriate therapy of the glaucoma can significantly improve the child's visual future.
