Primary Congenital Glaucoma (cont.)
IN THIS ARTICLE
Frequent follow-up visits are needed after surgery. During these visits, the ophthalmologist examines the child’s eyes and evaluates the effectiveness of the procedure in reducing IOP.
Primary congenital glaucoma cannot be prevented, but, if suspected, immediate treatment from an ophthalmologist can protect the child’s visual future and prevent vision loss.
