The features of NTG were described as (1) an onset occurring at 35 years of age or older; (2) signs and symptoms including normal IOP without treatment (diurnal curve or 24-h phasing), asymptomatic until visual field loss, ONH damage typical of glaucoma, and disc hemorrhages; (3) visual field defects typical of glaucoma; (4) gonioscopy showing an open angle; and (5) no history or signs of other eye disease or steroid use.
Group 2 included patients with high intraocular pressure (over 21 mmHg), narrow ACA detected by gonioscopy, glaucomatous optic nerve head changes (notching of optic disc rim, higher vertical cup-to-disc ratio, retinal nerve fiber layer hemorrhages), glaucomatous visual field defects (scotomas indicating loss of the nerve fiber layer), and no history of laser peripheral iridotomy.
It was real and you told me he performed gonioscopy on your eye.
Thirdly, because not all patients should be examined with gonioscopy, PACS eyes without any complaints, special biometric parameters, and medical history might be included in the healthy participants although studies suggest that the majority of patients with PACS will not develop either PAC or PACG [8, 43].

Gonioscopy revealed closed angles in both eyes; after indentation in OD the angle opened grade III (Schaffer)/ 360* and in OS the angle opened grade I-II (Schaffer)/ 360*.
* Gonioscopy to help determine the other eye's predisposition to developing glaucoma when primary glaucoma is present in the other eye.
* Gonioscopy to help determine the remaining eye's predisposition to developing glaucoma when primary glaucoma is present in the other eye.
This 21-chapter atlas on glaucoma covers its classification; aqueous humor dynamics; intraocular pressure and its measurement; gonioscopy; the optic nerve; the optic disc, retinal nerve fiber layer, and macular analysis for glaucoma; psychophysical and electrophysiological testing; primary and secondary open-angle glaucoma and variants; angle-closure glaucomas; ocular blood flow and metabolism; the developmental glaucomas and their treatment; medical therapy; laser, filtration, and non-penetrating surgeries; aqueous shunts; and combined cataract and glaucoma surgery.
The optic nerve and nerve fibre layer, as well as gonioscopy, are more accurate and important exams when diagnosing and assessing the progression of glaucoma [8,19].
The book contains about 400 high-quality color clinical photos illustrating placement of equipment, preparation of the patient, and step-by-step surgical procedures in gonioscopy, a diagnostic and treatment procedure for patients with glaucoma.
The angle of the anterior chamber can be assessed by performing gonioscopy. The examiner, usually the ophthalmologist, uses a gonio-mirror lens to grade the angle from 1 to 4 (see above).
All patients underwent standard ophthalmological examination including tonometry, perimetry, biomicroscopy and gonioscopy; washing-out of nasolacrimal duct being performed to assess its patency.
