The Optic Nerve Damage and Visual Field Change in the Acute Phase of Primary Angle-Closure Glaucoma
After acute onset of primary angle-closure glaucoma (PACG), it is difficult to identify the changes in the optic nerve and retina because of the tissue damage in the anterior segment. What are the characteristics of the visual field and optic nerve damage in PACG? Two cases in which the fundus changes after acute onset of PACG are quite typical are presented in this section. Although the cases are small in number, we believe they are representative based upon literature review and our observation.
