Summary: Glaucoma is a disease that rarely appears among young people. That is the main reason for its seldom occurence during pregnancy and lactation. Nevertheless, the idea of glaucoma treatment in this group of patient is significant for several reasons. First of all, there are no guidelines how to treat women suffering from glaucoma during pregnancy or lactation. Additionally, due to the fact of rare occurence of the disease among these women, in most cases ophthalmologists do not have enough experience in glaucoma therapy of such patients. Moreover, there are no population study on humans concerning the influence of glaucoma medication on fetus and infant during lactation because
of ethical reasons.
The main goal of this article is to introduce our opinion on the glaucoma treatment during pregnancy and lactation.
