  • Secondary Glaucoma

    To report the challenges in management in a case of scleritis with extensive staphylomas with secondary glaucoma.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Initial observation for growth and judiciously timed surgical intervention prevented progression, loss of vision, and potentially the loss of the eye.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] If left on its own, glaucoma progresses to a loss of central vision and sufferers go blind.
