Lens-Particle Glaucoma (cont.)

Lens-Particle Glaucoma Prognosis

With appropriately timed medical and surgical intervention for lens-particle glaucoma, prognosis is generally good and complications are minimized. Following an episode of lens-particle glaucoma, particularly if lens particles have been reabsorbed, some people may develop chronic open-angle glaucoma. For this reason, regular eye examinations with an ophthalmologist are very important.

Support Groups and Counseling

Support groups and counseling for people who are living with glaucoma, as well as informational material about lens-particle glaucoma, may be available through various organizations specializing in eye care.
