Developmental glaucoma is a severe eye disease, where there is till now no sufficient medical treatment available. There are better diagnostic criterias and there is an improvement of the microsurgery technique, but there are still cases, which carry a grave prognosis. They often require more than one surgery and can nevertheless lead to a visual handicap. Developmental glaucomas need a good compliance between patients, parents and ophthalmologists and an intensive long term control.
