Best care for son: Sounds like you are giving your son the best care possible. Glaucoma & cataracts in children can be challenging but success rates have increased significantly thru the years: Ahmed valves are sometimes the best option. Best you can do: f/u with good glaucoma specialist who can guide you through the options now & for the future (ie, if needs contact lenses, low vision, etc).eyedoc2020.blogspot.com
