  • Surgery

    Most children, especially babies with primary infantile glaucoma, have better vision results from surgery than medication. In a trabeculotomy, the surgeon removes a piece of tissue from the eye’s drainage canal. This opening allows fluid to drain properly.

    In goniotomy, the surgeon makes an opening in the trabecular meshwork, the tiny canals in the drainage angle of the eye. This opening allows fluid to flow out of the eye. Other procedures create a bypass route for the aqueous humor (a fluid made by the eye) to drain out of the eye. Some babies need surgery more than once to maintain the opening.

  • Eye Drops and Oral Medications

    When glaucoma develops after cataract surgery, your child’s physician may prescribe eye drops or oral medications to control intraocular pressure (IOP). If these are not effective, surgery may be needed.

  • Glasses

    Many children with pediatric glaucoma develop myopia (nearsightedness) and need glasses.
