Angle-closure glaucoma has_symptom progressive peripheral vision loss, decreased vision, and pain, redness, and headache in acute cases. Angle closure glaucoma can be caused by anatomically narrow angle, injury to the trabecular meshwork, and injuries to the anterior chamber, such as neovascularization and uveitis.
