We evaluated the course of intraocular pressure, responses to provocative tests and visual sensitivity in the central visual field in 80 eyes with primary angle-closure glaucoma. In all the eyes, the intraocular pressure was under control with or without topical medication after surgery and/or laser iridotomy.

Twelve eyes showed normal findings regarding intraocular pressure, provocative tests and central visual field.

By multivariate analysis, following factors were important in the prognosis of treated primary angle-closure glaucoma: intraocular pressure before and after treatment, prone position test, water-drinking test and visual field changes. Positive response to prone position test and maximum intraocular pressure after treatment were major contributory factors to progression of visual field damage.
