CHARACTERISTICS OF THE CLINICAL PICTURE AND RESULTS OF TREATMENT OF GLAUCOMA, COMBINED WITH MICROSPHEROPHAKIA IN CHILDREN

Abstract


Purpose. To study the clinical-functional features of glaucoma, combined with a rare genetic condition - microspherophakia. Material and methods. The analysis of complex survey 6 children (12 eyes) with glaucoma in hereditary microspheric, ranging in age from 3 months to 15 years Results. The paper highlights the characteristic anatomical and functional features of such eyes, presents variants of the clinical picture of glaucoma, depending on the timing of the debut of the glaucomatous process. The variants of step-by-step tactics of treatment of such patients are offered. The trends of the postoperative period, the tendency to the development of complications in the postoperative period, which must be taken into account both in the formulation of the correct diagnosis and the assessment of the prognosis of this pathology and the choice of tactics of treatment and further monitoring of such children. Summary. 1. The clinical picture of glaucoma associated with disorders of the lens - microspherophakia, varies widely and depends on the time of onset of the glaucoma, its degree of goniodysgenesis, condition and position of the lens. 2. The choice of adequate pathogenetically oriented tactics of surgical treatment should be carried out in each case individually. The priority is the method of normalizing IOP.
