BVA/KC/ISDS Eye Scheme – including gonioscopy
Gonioscopy is used to detect goniodysgenesis (defective development of the drainage angle); an abnormality of the eye which predisposes to primary angle closure/closed angle glaucoma. Goniodysgenesis is now graded from 0-3; where 0 is a normal angle, 1, is mildly affected, 2 is moderately affected and 3 is severely affected. Current advice is that gonioscopy is performed at approximately 1, 4 and 7-8 years of age.
