In glaucoma detection and management, it is important to recognise forms other than primary open angle  glaucoma(POAG). These would include angle closure glaucoma and various common and not-so-common secondary glaucomas. These conditions may afflict patients differing from the POAG demographic, such as younger patients, and may have a greater risk for visual disability.

Learning Outcomes

  1. Classes currently recognised for primary angle closure
  2. Epidemiology of angle closure glaucoma and societal burden of the disease
  3. Clinical characteristics of angle closure glaucoma and the therapeutic intervention for various types of the disease
  4. Clinical features and management of patients with exfoliative glaucoma
  5. Clinical features and management of patients with pigmentary glaucoma
  6. Clinical features and management of patients with neovascular and uveitic glaucoma.
