Caption

Congenital glaucoma. Close-up of the eyes of a child suffering from congenital glaucoma. Both eyes have fluid leaking from the eyeball into the gap between the lens and the cornea, seen as a slight clearing around each pupil. The eye at left is also slightly enlarged. Congenital glaucoma is due to a structural abnormality in the drainage angles of the eyes. Normal fluid drainage is impaired and pressure builds up, damaging the eye's internal structures. The eyeball can become hard and painful when the condition develops acutely. Treatments include diuretic drugs or drainage surgery.
