In India primary angle closure disease comprises approximately fifty percent of primary glaucoma. It is the leading cause of blindness from glaucoma. Appropriate identification and institution of therapy can prevent long term morbidity from this disease. The use of Pilocarpine and the application of laser iridotomy early in the treatment of angle closure glaucoma has to be underscored. Long term prognosis depends upon identification of the variety of presentations and appropriate use of medical and laser and surgical therapy to maintain a good quality of life for the patients.
