Micro-invasive Glaucoma Surgery in Childhood Glaucoma By Ta Chen Chang MD, Kara M Cavuoto MD In adult-onset glaucoma, surgery is offered after conservative therapies have proven inadequate, but in childhood glaucoma, surgery is frequently the first-line treatment. The Ocular Hypertension Treatment Study (OHTS) found that the overall risk for patients with IOPs ranging from mm Hg but with no clinical signs of glaucoma have an average risk of 10% of developing glaucoma over 5 years, with that risk being cut in half if patients are preemptively started on IOP-lowering therapy.
