Pigmentary Glaucoma

This is a form of secondary open angle glaucoma. It occurs when the pigment granules in the back of the iris break into the clear fluid produced inside the eye. These tiny pigment granules flow toward the drainage canals in the eye and slowly clog them. This will cause eye pressure to rise. Treatment may include either eye medications or surgery.
