Meds or laser: Angle closure happens when the drainage system of the eye gets blocked abruptly, causing intense pain from high pressure. The first step is medications (several different eye drops and a pill). In some cases, a laser is needed to create a new drainage system emergently. If left too long, vision loss is permanent, so get treated immediately.
