Glaucoma is one of the leading causes of blindness worldwide and is characterized by progressive optic nerve damage and irreversible visual field defects, often caused by abnormally high intraocular pressure. The most common forms of glaucoma are those related to increasing age. There are congenital forms that follow an autosomal dominant or recessive inheritance pattern, and syndromic forms, the Axenfeld-Rieger syndrome among them.
