Aim: To compare the prevalence, demographical profile and visual status of Primary Open-Angle Glaucoma (POAG) and Primary Angle-Closure Glaucoma (PACG) at first visit in a Gujarat Adani Institute of Medical Science, Bhuj, Kutch.
Materials and Methods: Cross sectional observational study of 50 patients with primary glaucoma was done. Detailed history was taken and all patients underwent complete physical and ocular examination.
Results: 48% were suffering from POAG and 52% were suffering from PACG. Mean age was 56.58 in POAG and 54.42 years in PACG with male predomniancy in POAG. From POAG patients 41.6% had VA<3/60 comparative to PACG patients 15.3%.
Conclusion: Prevalence of POAG and PACG is almost equal with PACG on slightly higher side and mean age of presentation was slightly higher for POAG than PACG. Good Vision (≥ 6/18) was more common in PACG than POAG while POAG is more commonly associated with blindness (<3/60) at presentation.

Keywords: Cross sectional, Prevalence, PACG, POAG.
