China has a large burden of primary angle-closure glaucoma (PACG) and the approach to treatment is different from that in most parts of the world. In China, trabeculectomy is a mainstay of initial treatment for PACG and laser peripheral iridotomy is reserved for PAC and PACG with peripheral angle synechiae ≤180 degrees. The greater reduction of and more stable IOP, lower frequency of acute angle closure, decreased progression of peripheral anterior synechia and glaucoma, and the reduction of… CONTINUE READING
