Anterior Chamber Angle Imaging with Swept-Source Optical Coherence Tomography: Measuring Peripheral Anterior Synechia in Glaucoma – Corrected Proof

Objective: To investigate the use of swept-source optical coherence tomography (OCT) for measuring the area and degree of peripheral anterior synechia (PAS) involvement in patients with angle-closure glaucoma. Design: Cross-sectional study. Participants: Twenty-three eyes with PAS (detected by indentation gonioscopy) from 20 patients with angle-closure glaucoma (20 eyes had primary angle-closure glaucoma and 3 eyes had angle-closure glaucoma secondary to chronic anterior uveitis [n = 2] and Axenfeld–Rieger syndrome [n = 1]). Methods: The anterior chamber angles were evaluated with indentation gonioscopy and imaged by swept-source OCT (Casia OCT, Tomey, Nagoya, Japan) in room light and in the dark using (Read more...)
