1. Dark Room Provocative Test and Extent of Angle Closure: An Anterior Segment OCT Study

    Purpose: To clarify the risk parameters measured by anterior segment optical coherence tomography (AS-OCT) for elevated intraocular pressures (IOP) provoked by the darkroom test and to provide recommendations for its clinical usage.Methods: Subjects aged >40 years and whose peripheral anterior chambers were =8 mm Hg after the test. Statistical analyses included: (1) the difference in parameters between positive and negative eyes; (2) the association between posttest IOP and the parameters; and (3) the difference in parameters between the 2 eyes in subjects with the asymmetric results.Results: A total of 70 subjects were recruited. ACD (P=0.022), NCA ...
