Abstract

Pediatric glaucoma is not popular in ophthalmic research at present; very few papers have been published on this topic during the past year. Half of the studies published concern congenital glaucoma: its association with the anterior cleavage syndrome, the possible correlation between axial length and the prognosis of surgical treatment, and the possibility of treatment with neodymium:yttrium-aluminum-garnet laser goniotomy. More interestingly, secondary aphakic glaucoma following surgery for congenital cataract has been found to be associated with an excessive loss of hyperopia following surgery and represents a risk factor for secondary glaucoma.
