Definition

An autosomal dominant form of primary glaucoma, an ocular disease characterized by a marked increase of intraocular pressure causing damage to eye structures and function. GLCC is characterized by elevated intraocular pressure due to iridocorneal angle closure with retention of the aqueous humor in the anterior chamber. Iridocorneal angle changes are apparent in the fourth to fifth decade of life, and patients manifest age-related variation in the severity of glaucomatous damage.
