To our knowledge, this was the first study conducted in the northwest Croatia population to determine the prevalence of PXS, PXG, POAG and PACG.
3 is seen as an indication of an eye at risk of PACG.
Late presentation in POAG and PACG is common (Gogate, Deshpande, Chelerkar, Deshpande, & Deshpande, 2011).
The team of scientists led an international consortium that carried out a genome-wide association study (GWAS) of 1,854 PACG cases and 9,608 controls of over five sample collections in Asia.
The information on genes involved in PACG has also opened up new and exciting research areas for us that we hope will culminate in new treatment modalities for angle closure glaucoma in the future," Said Dr Eranga Vithana, Associate Director, Basic and Experimental Sciences at SERI, and lead author of the paper.

Intraocular pressures decreased in all groups postoperatively, but the change was statistically significant in the PACG group (p=0.
However in East Asia, the prevalence of angle closure is much greater (for example, in Mongolia PACG accounts for four-out-of-five newly diagnosed cases of glaucoma).
