Angle closure involves interplay of multiple anatomical, physiological factors

HYDERABAD, India — New imaging technologies have enabled specialists to determine that an interplay of multiple anatomical and physiological factors are involved in the pathogenesis of angle closure. “We have been able to learn quite a lot on angle closure by using imaging technologies, particularly [ultrasound biomicroscopy] and anterior-segment [optical coherence tomography]. We are studying new risk factors such as iris thickness, smaller anterior chamber width area and volume, and greater lens vault,” Tin Aung, MD, said at the joint meeting of the Asia-Pacific Academy of Ophthalmology and All India (Read more...)
