    Distribution of anterior chamber angle measurements in South African young adults: an optical coherence tomography study

    Purpose: Assessment of anterior chamber angle (ACA) variables is important to screen, diagnose and monitor ocular anomalies. Even though data on ACA variables, such as angle-opening distance taken at 500 µm (AOD500) and trabecular-iris angle (TIA), are available in the literature, limited information is available about these variables in African sub-populations. The purpose of this study is to describe the distribution of ACA measurements (AOD500 and TIA) in a South African young adult population. Methods: In this cross-sectional study, 700 young adults were recruited from a university student population using two-stage random sampling. The Optovue iVue 100 optical coherence tomographer ...
