Primary Angle Closure (PAC) is complex disease antity as a leading cause of glaucoma. In PAC there is no underlying pathology, only an anatomic predisposition. An eye that is anatomically predisposed to develop angle clossure has several factors to precipitate an attack. Pupillary black is the most frequent cause of angle clossure and is the underlying cause of most cases of primary angle closure. Acute Primary Angle Closure (APAC) occurs when intraocular pressure (IOP) rises rapidly as a result of relatively sudden blackage of trabecular meschwork by iris. The rise of IO2 to relatively high levels causes corneal epithelial edema, which is responsible for the visual symptoms. APAC is one of the most important ophthalmic emergencies and can cause blindness rapidly, Definitive diagnosis depends an the gonioscopic verification of angle closure. The definitive treatment for APAC is iridectomy, laser or surgical. Thus, prophylactic iridectomy should be performed in the contralateral eye.
