Glaucoma

Glaucoma

Some children are born with high pressure in the eyes or develop high pressure soon after birth. This can damage the optic nerves and cause sight impairment (glaucoma). Children with this condition have to attend regular eye clinic appointments and sometimes need many operations to control the pressure in their eyes. The number of examinations, eye drops and operations can emotionally affect the whole family. In addition, there is often long-term anxiety about the risk of the child losing their vision.
