How come the doctor noticed and checked the vein in the first place?
hi stonston,
my dd was born with congenital glaucoma, so they do all sorts of blood test / head scan / renal scan etc all to check is it any sydrome...

My sister's baby has glaucoma, she chose to have surgery right away.
Surgery can often correct such physical deficiencies from babies. Both medication and surgery are essential in some cases. Th doctor advised us to have topical eye drops and oral medications for the baby. These treatments help to either upsurge the exit of fluid from the eye or reduce the production of fluid inside the eye. I think this article will be of help
