Glaucoma - 11 Year Old

DS2 had a routine eye test today; last one was 18 months ago. Today the optician found some glaucoma and will be referring us to a specialist. From my basic research just now it seems that childhood glaucoma is usually picked up before 2 years of age. I'm obviously a bit worried. Has anyone else got experience of this please? TIA.

It's a cataract, on one side. Sorry!
