    Comprehensive Ophthalmology, Glaucoma, Neuro-Ophthalmology/Orbit

    An acute episode of angle-closure glaucoma is an ocular emergency and requires immediate intervention. Beware of the trap of confusing this uncommon ophthalmic entity with a cerebral aneurysm (which is accompanied by headaches and a fixed, dilated pupil) or with abdominal pathology (symptoms of which include nausea, vomiting, and usually abdominal pain), because evaluation of these entities only delays the needed ophthalmic treatment.
