Secondary glaucoma is somewhat like any other type of glaucoma except that is caused by injury, chronic inflammation, tumor, or dense cataracts.
Glaucoma can be treated in several ways. The first and most common step is the use of pressure lowering drops. These may be used daily for the remainder of a person’s life. Never discontinue your drops without seeing your doctor. Depending on the type and severity of glaucoma, laser or other surgical procedures may be necessary.
