Hello, Welcome to Just Answer

Customer:

Hello

Dr. A.S. Desai :

Narrow angles is a term which is used to describe the opening through which the aqueous humour( fluid within the eye) passes out of the eye.

Customer:

Is this a serious condition?

Dr. A.S. Desai :

Normally the aqueous drains out of this angle which is open.This is confirmed by doing a simple test called as gonioscopy.

Dr. A.S. Desai :

If left untreated narrow angles can pose a risk for angle closure glaucoma , which in turn can cause problems to the eye.

Customer:
