Glaucoma

Taking care of pediatric glaucoma, or cloudiness in the lens of an eye, may require both surgical and medical treatment. At Nemours, we have a pediatric ophthalmology team that’s equipped to provide medical treatment and, when it’s necessary, pediatric glaucoma surgery for children and even infants.

Although parts of the examination for glaucoma can be done in our office, diagnosing babies with glaucoma usually requires an examination under anesthesia in order to evaluate the intraocular pressure and other aspects of the condition.

For older children, the complete examination may be done in our office.

Taking care of pediatric glaucoma may require both surgical and medical treatment. As with most childhood eye conditions, the earlier the diagnosis and treatment, the more promising the outcome.
