Ocular Biometry in the Subtypes of Angle Closure: An Anterior Segment Optical Coherence Tomography Study

Purpose: To evaluate ocular biometric parameters in different subtypes of angle-closure disease in the Iranian population and compare them with normal eyes.Design: Prospective, cross-sectional.Methods: In this clinic-based study, 189 eyes of 154 patients consisting of 40 acute angle-closure glaucoma (AACG) eyes, 40 fellow eyes of AACG, 42 chronic angle-closure glaucoma (CACG) eyes, 40 primary angle-closure suspect (PACS) eyes, and 27 normal eyes underwent complete examination including gonioscopy, A-scan biometry, and anterior segment optical coherence tomography. Only 1 eye of CACG, PACS, and control subjects were selected. Main outcome measures included angle opening distance and trabeculo-iris space area at 500 μm from (Read more...)
