Abstract: Two cases of bilateral juvenile open angle glaucoma (JOAG) in a four-year-old Chinese boy and a 12-year-old Chinese girl are reported. Applanation tonometry revealed elevated intraocular pressure (IOP) in both eyes. The patients were asymptomatic and bilateral open angle glaucoma was confirmed by a paediatric ophthalmologist. One patient had surgery (trabeculectomy), while the other was treated with topical medication. The early detection and treatment of JOAG is essential for the preservation of vision. Tonometry must be performed as part of a routine eye examination regardless of the age of the patient.
