Glaucoma Types

Glaucoma Types

When intraocular pressure becomes too high, glaucoma may occur. This occurs because, the eye fluid channel becomes narrow, but the eye fluid (also called aqueous humor) continue to rise.

Open-angle glaucoma (sometimes called wide-angle glaucoma), is the most common glaucoma. This glaucoma type seems to have normal eye structures, but the eye fluid can not smoothly go through the trabecular meshwork.

Angle-closure glaucoma (also called narrow-angle glaucoma), is another type. This glaucoma is less common, but it may cause a sudden eye pressure increase. Because the iris and the cornea form a small angle, eye fluid channel becomes too narrow, causing eye fluid blockage.
