Congenital Glaucoma Symptoms

Glaucoma is normally a condition that affects people over the age of 35. However, congenital glaucoma affects children. With this type, children are born with a defect in the angle of the eye that slows down the normal drainage of fluid. These children usually have obvious glaucoma symptoms, such as:
 
  • Cloudy eyes
  • Sensitivity to light
  • Excessive tearing.
