1. Assessment of Scleral Spur Visibility With Anterior Segment Optical Coherence Tomography

    Purpose: To develop a grading system to evaluate the scleral spur visibility and to investigate the association between this and the angle width. Methods: Sixty healthy normal subjects (33 with open angles and 27 with narrow angles on dark room gonioscopy) underwent anterior segment imaging with the Visante OCT (Carl Zeiss Meditec, Dublin, CA). The anterior chamber angles at 12-o' clock hour positions were imaged and analyzed. The scleral spur at each clock hour position was independently graded by 2 observers. A scleral spur visibility score (SSVS) of 2 denotes clear visibility of the scleral spur. SSVS of 0 and ...
