The ocular dimensions in patients suffering from primary angle-closure glaucoma (a.c.g.) have been studied in several clinical series, chiefly in Caucasians. The epidemiology and aetiology of a.c.g. are less well known although genetic factors seem to be involved. Eskimos have recently been shown to constitute a high risk population with respect to a.c.g. Consequently, a series of oculometric, epidemiologic, and genetic studies among Greenland Eskimos was undertaken. Besides the immediate… CONTINUE READING
