Answer

Complications are related to prolonged IOP elevations secondary to aqueous outflow impairment, resulting in damage to the optic nerve head and visual field compromise. Three mechanisms are identified with these prolonged elevations, as follows: (1) underlying POAG, (2) prolonged steroid administration, and (3) increased frequency of recurrent glaucomatocyclitic attacks.
