Primary angle closure disease has a multi-factorial etiology with varied and unpredictable interplay of race, gender, genetics, biometry, lens parameters, static and dynamic iris measurements, choroid and, yet, many unknown factors. A prevalent thought at the moment is that Cataract surgery may provide a simple and universal solution to this complex entity. However, the evidence has shown extensive success, provided some caveats are met. We will go on an journey to look at the evidence, in a manner, as complete and unbiased as possible, to look at the utility and limitations of Cataract extraction in Angle closure disease across the spectrum.
