Are my cataracts and my glaucoma related?
Sometimes. There are eye conditions (e.g. pseudoexfoliation syndrome) in which these typically unrelated ocular pathologies are very much related. These conditions must be identified early and treated accordingly by your eye care professional team.
The typical form of glaucoma is unrelated to cataract. Although not a treatment for glaucoma, removing the natural lens of the eye can increase intraocular fluid outflow and lower pressure.
