Aphakic/pseudophakic glaucoma


Book Section

© Springer Science+Business Media, LLC 2016. Aphakic/pseudophakic glaucoma is a secondary glaucoma that occurs following the removal of a cataract. It is a serious consequence of cataract surgery in some patients and requires early diagnosis and prompt treatment. The presence of glaucoma may significantly impede visual rehabilitation of the affected eye, and if left untreated, can lead to significant vision loss. This chapter will discuss the timing of the onset of aphakic/pseudophakic glaucoma, diagnostic criteria, risk factors, and the medical and surgical management of this condition.
