Purpose: The classification of primary angle-closure glaucoma (PSG) on the basis of genetic studies is proposed.
Methods: 30 patients (46 eyes) aged 40 to 65 years with various forms of angle-closure glaucoma were examined.
Results: Clinical and genetic analysis of patients with primary angle-closure glaucoma was carried out. It is noted that the classification based on biometric indicators does not take into account the genetic characteristics of patients with PACG, predisposition to which is inherent at birth. Indications for preventive laser iridectomy with appositional closure of the anterior chamber angle are substantiated.
Conclusion: The innate nature of PACG dictates the need for the formation of a pathogenetic classification of PACG.
