Symptoms and types of glaucoma

Recession of the angle: causes, symptoms, diagnosis, treatment

The recession of the angle - the rupture of the ciliary body between its longitudinal and circular muscle layers - develops as a result of a dull or penetrating injury of the eyeball.

Traumatic hyphema: causes, symptoms, diagnosis, treatment

Hyphema - the presence of blood in the anterior chamber. The amount of blood can be microscopic (microhyphema), when red blood cells in watery moisture are visible only with biomicroscopy, or the blood is located in the anterior chamber.

Fakomorphic glaucoma

Facomorphic glaucoma develops with the secondary closure of a corner, mature or overripe cataract. Its difference from previous pathologies lies in the swelling of the lens, shallow anterior chamber and closed corner.

Phacogenic uveitis (phacoanafilaxia): causes, symptoms, diagnosis, treatment

Phacogenic uveitis, phacoanafilactic uveitis, is a rare granulomatous inflammatory process that develops when the tolerance of the immune system to lens proteins is impaired, usually accompanied by hypotension.

Glaucoma lens of the masses

Glaucoma of lens masses develops when the integrity of the lens capsule is broken and its cortex and proteins are released into the anterior chamber. This situation occurs after extracapsular extraction of cataracts, lens trauma with a capsule rupture and neodymium IAG laser back capsulotomy, in which free lens particles block the trabecular network, disrupting the outflow of watery moisture.

Facial glaucoma or glaucoma of lens proteins

Facial glaucoma develops with mature or overripe cataracts. When percolation of soluble lens proteins into the anterior chamber, the trabecular network is blocked, leading to an increase in intraocular pressure.

Phacogenic open-angle glaucoma: causes, symptoms, diagnosis, treatment

To phacogenic open-angle glaucomas include three different diagnoses with similar clinical symptoms. Facial glaucoma, glaucoma lens masses and phacogenous uveitis (FGU) develop with intraocular inflammation, an abnormal lens and with increased intraocular pressure, but in the future, as a rule, hypotension develops.

Sarcoidosis and glaucoma

Sarcoidosis is a systemic disease characterized by the formation of noncaseating, granulomatous inflammatory infiltrates in the lungs, skin, liver, spleen, central nervous system and eyes.

Lens associated with uveitis and glaucoma

Upon penetration of the lens proteins through an intact or damaged capsule, a strong intraocular inflammatory reaction is triggered into the anterior chamber of the eye or vitreous cavity, as a result of which an outflow of intraocular fluid may occur with the development of an acute increase in intraocular pressure or glaucoma.

Juvenile rheumatoid arthritis and glaucoma

Juvenile rheumatoid arthritis is a common cause of uveitis in children, which often develop an increase in intraocular pressure and glaucoma.
