The records of all the glaucoma patients seen at the General Hospital Kuala Lumpur over a five year period were analysed. The racial, age and sex distribution of patients with primary open angle glaucoma and primary angle closure glaucoma was determined. The causes of secondary glaucoma were analysed. As no previous records of glaucoma statistics are available in Malaysia, it is hoped that these findings will form an initial mosaic to build on in the future.
