      A 65-year-old mart developed unilateral nonrubeotic 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 photocoagulation 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.
