Eleven patients with glaucomatocyclitic crises were followed for periods of time ranging from one week to 25 years. Between crises, there was a high incidence of elevated intraocular pressure, decreased facility of outflow, high intraocular pressure response to topical corticosteroids, cupping of the optic nerve head, and visual field loss in the nonaffected eye as well as in the involved eye. These observations differ from the classic description of the disease and indicate a predilection for glaucomatocyclitic crisis in patients with primary open-angle glaucoma.
