types of glaucoma

Post by meme » Sun Feb 12, 2006 6:43 pm


I am carrying out research on the glaucoma, and i have come across many names for the different types of glaucoma. I understand there are many forms, but i am gettin confused if some of the names are the same but just worded differently. So far i have the following list of types of glaucomas:

-primary open-angle glaucoma
-primary angle closure glaucoma
- secondary open angle glaucoma
- secondary angle closure glaucoma
-normal tension glaucoma
-acute glaucoma
-pigmentary glaucoma
-exfoliation syndrome
-trauma-related glaucoma

are these the most common forms of glaucoma, and if so are any of these the same just named differently? are there any that i missed out?
Any information available on glaucoma and the structure of the eye will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you in advance.
