Gonioscopy is critical in the evaluation of all forms of glaucoma. It is unfortunately common that secondary forms of glaucoma are unrecognized because of the failure to perform gonioscopy. Not only is gonioscopy able to provide information about the potential causes of raised intraocular pressure, but it can also provide clues critical to the determination of therapy.
