Answer

Peripheral anterior synechiae (PAS) can present in the following ways:

  • Acute angle closure with the classic constellation of symptoms, including ocular pain, headaches, blurred vision, and haloes
  • Subacute history of multiple transient attacks of intraocular pressure elevation, which consist of mild ocular pain, reduced vision, and haloes
  • Chronic angle closure, which is often asymptomatic but may present with reduced vision due to corneal edema or end-stage glaucomatous optic neuropathy
