Angle-Closure Glaucoma

glaucoma surgein njAngle-closure glaucoma, also called narrow-angle glaucoma, is much less common. Angle-closure glaucoma affects only about one out of every ten glaucoma patients, and involves a blockage in the normal flow of aqueous. This can lead to symptoms such as redness, discomfort, blurred vision, and headaches. This blockage is more common in patients who are farsighted, have dense cataracts, or have structural abnormalities in the eye.
 
This type of glaucoma can develop suddenly or gradually, depending on the cause. Most patients who develop angle-closure glaucoma are born with narrow drainage angles that put them at a higher risk for developing this condition.
