The word glaucoma came from the Greek word ‘glaukos’ which meant ‘clouded with a blue-green hue’. In the Hippocratic Aphorisms the term glaucoma was used to describe blindness coming on in advancing years associated with a glazed appearance of the pupil. The Hippocratic writings make no clear distinction between cataract and glaucoma.

Bleb morphology is an important clinical parameter as an indicator for bleb function. Imaging techniques like ultrasound biomicroscopy (UBM) and optical coherence tomography (OCT) have been used to study bleb morphology(1).
