Glaucoma is one of the leading causes of blindness and visual impairment. It is defined as a progressive optic neuropathy characterized by optic disk cupping and visual field loss; a major risk factor for progression is the increase in intraocular pressure. Open-angle glaucoma and angle-closure glaucoma are classified on the basis of gonioscopy findings of the iridocorneal angle and anterior segment variation which can lead to an increase in intraocular pressure. The occurrence of both open-angle and angle-closure glaucoma in the same patient is a rare incidence, so careful examination is required to rule out all the patients having primary or secondary causes of glaucoma.
