Angle closure glaucoma (ACG) is particularly prevalent in Asia. It poses distinguished challenges in its prevention and management. This symposium will have presentations covering important aspects such as lens extraction, phaco-trabeculectomy, neovascular glaucoma and nanophthalmos. Some challenging cases of ACG and the future research direction will also be talked about. Audiences should be able to get a better idea of current management and future challenges in ACG.
