  • Secondary glaucoma occurs as a result of another disease or injury that causes or contributes to an increase in the eye's intraocular pressure. Secondary glaucoma may be caused by an eye injury, inflammation, a tumor, certain drugs such as steroids, and advanced cases of cataracts or diabetes. The type of treatment will depend on the underlying cause, but usually includes medications such as eye drops, laser surgery, or conventional surgery. If you have eye conditions that may lead to secondary glaucoma, it is important that you have regular vision exams that include glaucoma screening.
