In brief: Medical/surgical

Most infantie glaucoma cases are congenital in nature , due to a structural malformation of the eye.
These are usually treated with surgical intervention very early. Adolescent glaucoma is rare and an attempt to treat it medically, with drops may tried, unless there is a structural component to t he disease that requires surgical intervention.
