Treatment of closed-angle glaucoma

Irradiation of the iris and closure of the anterior chamber angle due to the pupillary block lead to a sharp increase in intraocular pressure and the development of secondary glaucoma in patients with uveitis.

Cyclodestructive surgery for glaucoma

Several methods are used for cyclodestruction: non-contact transscleral cyclophotocoagulation (CTC), cyclocryotherapy, contact transcleral CT, transpupillary CT and endoscopic cyclophobic coagulation.
