Glaucoma is a leading cause of irreversible blindness worldwide.

Peripheral anterior synechia (PAS) frequently develop due to an attack of prolonged acute attack or a series subacute attack of angle closure glaucoma. These PAS are usually high and broad and very difficult to find out whether the PAS formed before or during the attack or possibly at both times.
