Abstract

Glaucoma is a term that refers to many different disorders which may be characterized by age of onset, associated ocular findings, or associated systemic malformations and diseases. Specification of the type of glaucoma, both clinically, and where applicable, molecularly aids in diagnosis, counseling, treatment, and prognosis. The objective of this report is to assist geneticists in understanding glaucoma and recognizing the importance of detailed terminology in clinical genetic diagnosis.
