Classification of Glaucoma

Glaucoma has been classified into specific types:

  • Primary glaucoma and its variants
  • Primary glaucoma
  • Primary open-angle glaucoma, also known as chronic open-angle glaucoma, chronic simple glaucoma, glaucoma simplex
  • Low-tension glaucoma
  • Primary angle-closure glaucoma, also known as primary closed-angle glaucoma, narrow-angle glaucoma, iris-block glaucoma, acute congestive glaucoma
  • Acute angle-closure glaucoma
  • Chronic angle-closure glaucoma
  • Intermittent angle-closure glaucoma
  • Superimposed on chronic open-angle closure glaucoma (combined mechanism)
  • Variants of primary glaucoma
  • Pigmentary glaucoma
  • Exfoliation glaucoma, also known as pseudoexfoliative glaucoma or glaucoma capsulare

Developmental glaucoma :

  • Developmental glaucoma
  • Primary congenital glaucoma
  • Infantile glaucoma
  • Glaucoma associated with hereditary of familial diseases

Secondary glaucoma:

  • Secondary glaucoma
  • Inflammatory glaucoma
  • Uveitis of all types
  • Fuchs heterochromic iridocyclitis
  • Phacogenic glaucoma
  • Phacoanaphylactic glaucoma secondary to rupture of lens capsule
  • Phacolytic glaucoma due to phacotoxic meshwork blockage
  • Subluxation of lens
  • Glaucoma secondary to intraocular hemorrhage
  • Hyphema
  • Hemolytic glaucoma, also known as erythroclastic glaucoma

Traumatic glaucoma:

  • Angle recession glaucoma: Traumatic recession on anterior chamber angle
  • Postsurgical glaucoma
  • Aphakic pupillary block
  • Ciliary block glaucoma
  • Neovascular glaucoma
  • Drug-induced glaucoma
  • Corticosteroid induced glaucoma
  • Alpha-chymotrypsin glaucoma. Postoperative ocular hypertension from use of alpha chymotrypsin.
  • Glaucoma of miscellaneous origin
  • Associated with intraocular tumors
  • Associated with retinal deatchments
  • Secondary to severe chemical burns of the eye
  • Associated with essential iris atrophy
