Under the term childhood glaucoma, we find different types of glaucoma, both primary (an eye condition causing glaucoma) and secondary (to other pathologies or contiguous causes).
Congenital glaucoma would be a type of primary childhood glaucoma, with 3 subtypes based on the age of onset:
—neonatal: ( 0-1 month)
—childhood: 1-month- 24 months
—late: > 24 months
From a surgical point of view, this means that congenital glaucoma has the same therapeutic plan as childhood glaucoma.
