  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

We treated 46 eyes of 24 patients with chronic angle-closure glaucoma by argon laser iridotomy. The treated eyes were evaluated as to gonioscopic features, intraocular pressure, tonography and provocative test findings.

All the treated eyes manifested widened chamber angle and deeper anterior chamber. The intra-ocular pressure (IOP) tended to decrease during the 3 months postsurgically. It started to rise in 6 eyes after 4 to 12 months accompanied by decrease in facility of outflow. This deterioration was sup-posed to be due to associated presence of primary open-angle glaucoma and pigmentary dispersion.
