A 65-year-old man developed unilateral non-rubeotic secondary angle-closure glaucoma after central retinal vein occlusion. Therapy was nonsurgical and included medical control of the intraocular pressure. The anterior chamber eventually deepened and panretinal photo-coagulation was later necessary because of developing rubeosis iridis and neovascularization of the optic disk. Secondary nonrubeotic angle-closure glaucoma from central retinal vein occlusion must be distinguished from rubeotic glaucoma or pupillary-block glaucoma so that inappropriate medical or surgical treatment can be avoided.
