Pathophysiology of Glaucoma


Glaucoma is a condition in which the optic nerve is damaged due to an increase in intraocular pressure. Glaucoma occurs when there is insufficient trabecular outflow of aqueous humor, thus increasing the intraocular pressure in the eye. There are two types of glaucoma: primary open-angle glaucoma (no proper drainage of fluids from the eye) and angle-closure glaucoma (iris very close to drainage angle). There are several types of glaucoma surgery:


  • Argon Laser Trabeculoplasty (ALT)
  • Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty (SLT)
  • Laser Peripheral Iridotomy (LPI)
  • Cyclophotocoagulation
