Secondary Angle Closure Glaucoma

Primary open angle glaucoma occurs predominantly in the elderly and is caused by an acquired unilateral or bilateral disease of the trabecular meshwork, visible at histopathological examination by hyalinisation of the trabecular meshwork.

In secondary angle closure glaucoma, iridotrabecular or iridocorneal contact is present. This is most frequently caused by neovascular glaucoma, in which neovascu-larisation with fibrosis of the iris occurs, for example in retinopathy of prematurity. Other causes are end-stage inflammatory disease, retinal detachment, tumours or trauma.
