Chronic Closed Angle Glaucoma

Abstract
Glaucoma is a heterogeneous condition that leads to damage of the optic nerve and may result in visual field loss, including complete blindness. Anatomically, glaucoma is classified into open-angle glaucoma and close angle glaucoma. A closed-angle is an anatomical configuration in which there is a mechanical blockage of the trabecular meshwork by the peripheral iris. Etiologically, it can be classified as primary or secondary angle closure. Primary angle-closure is not associated with any other ocular condition, while secondary angle closure is associated with one or more other ocular conditions. Clinically, angle-closure can be considered acute or chronic. Chronic angle-closure can occur with or without symptoms, and thus it can be described as ''silent" closed-angle glaucoma. Because this condition mainly consists of irido-trabecular contact leading to synechiae formation and subsequent angle closure, it has also been described as "creeping" angle closure.[1]
