Childhood glaucoma: are we making progress?

Miss Maria Papadopoulos - Moorfields Eye Hospital, London, UK

 

Childhood glaucoma is the most challenging in the field of glaucoma for numerous reasons which range from the difficulties of assessment to those of management, especially with surgery associated with a high failure rate. The most common operations performed now to treat glaucoma were introduced in the last century. However, over the past 20 years modifications have been made to these operations, which have either improved the success rates, reduced the complication rates or both. More importantly, these changes suggest improved visual acuity outcomes, and so the potential to significantly improve the quality of life of children with glaucoma. Despite these advances, important challenges remain. Experience has shown us that to expedite further progress, international collaboration is paramount.
