Acute Angle Closure Glaucoma

Acute angle closure glaucoma occurs when narrowing of the anterior chamber angle leads to a sudden increase in intraocular pressure. This is an ocular emergency. In acute angle closure glaucoma, the passageway to the eye’s drainage apparatus becomes so narrow that it disrupts flow of the fluid inside the eye to its drains. Rapid treatment to decrease the intraocular pressure and break the attack of angle closure is needed to preserve vision.
