Symptoms and types of glaucoma

Syphilitic interstitial keratitis and glaucoma

Syphilis of the eye can be a congenital or acquired disease, transmitted sexually. In congenital syphilis, as a rule, the anterior segment of the eye is affected with the development of interstitial keratitis and anterior uveitis, and with acquired syphilis, both anterior and posterior uveitis develop.

Herpetic keratouveuitis and glaucoma

Infection of the eye caused by the herpes simplex virus (HSV) is manifested as recurrent unilateral blepharoconjunctivitis, epithelial and stromal keratitis and uveitis.

Glauco-cyclic crisis (Posner-Schlossman syndrome)

Glauco-cyclical crisis is a syndrome that manifests itself as repeated episodes of light idiopathic unilateral non-granulomatous anterior uveitis in combination with a pronounced increase in intraocular pressure.

Heterochromic iridocyclitis Fuchs: causes, symptoms, diagnosis, treatment

Heterochromic iridocyclitis Fuchs is a one-sided chronic inactive non-granulomatous anterior uveitis associated with secondary posterior subcapsular cataract and glaucoma in 13-59% of cases.

Glaucoma associated with uveitis

Increased intraocular pressure and the development of glaucoma in patients with uveitis is a multifactorial process that can be considered as a complication of intraocular inflammatory process.

Steroid-induced glaucoma: causes, symptoms, diagnosis, treatment

Secondary open-angle glaucoma can develop in almost any mode of administration of glucocorticoid drugs. Elevation of intraocular pressure can be pronounced and prolonged.

Exfoliative Syndrome and Glaucoma: Causes, Symptoms, Diagnosis, Treatment

Exfoliative syndrome is a systemic disease that leads to the development of secondary open-angle glaucoma.

Pigment Dispersion Syndrome

Pigment Dispersion Syndrome (SPD) is a condition in which the pigment is washed out of the pigment epithelium of the back of the iris, its subsidence on various structures of the anterior segment of the eye. Obstruction and subsequent destruction of the trabecular network can result in increased intraocular pressure and the development of secondary open-angle glaucoma.

Glaucoma associated with congenital diseases

An aniridia is a bilateral congenital anomaly, in which the iris is considerably underdeveloped, but under gonioscopy a rudimentary rudiment of the iris is visible. In 2/3 of cases, a dominant type of inheritance is observed with high penetrance.

Primary congenital glaucoma: causes, symptoms, diagnosis, treatment

Congenital glaucoma is a group of conditions with anomalies in the development of the system of outflow of intraocular moisture. This group includes: congenital glaucoma, in which an anomaly in the development of the anterior chamber angle is not associated with other ocular or systemic abnormalities; Congenital glaucoma with concomitant ocular or systemic abnormalities; secondary glaucoma of childhood, in which other eye pathologies cause a violation of outflow of fluid.
