DEFINITION


This pathology of the eyeball implies that the angles formed by the junction of the iris and the cornea are too narrow. If untreated, the angles may close and cause acute glaucoma.

You should know that Bellevue clinics have all the latest technologies available to diagnose and monitor narrow angles cases.

SYMPTOMS


  • Narrow angles are asymptomatic, hence the importance of preventive treatment when your ophthalmologist diagnoses you with narrow iridocorneal angles.

RISK FACTORS


  • Hypermetropia
  • Crystalline growth
  • Age
  • Heredity
