Abstract

Although there are many different types of glaucomas, they can conveniently be broken down into four basic categories, namely: (1) open-angle glaucoma, (2) closed-angle glaucoma, (3) congenital/juvenile glaucoma and (4) secondary glaucoma, the first three being either of primary or secondary origin. In this paper, we review the literature on the four basic categories separately, subdividing each one into its etiology, incidence and prevalence, examination and diagnosis, prognosis, treatment and management.
