    Narrow- and Open-Angle Measurements With Anterior-Segment Optical Coherence Tomography and Pentacam™

    BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVETo assess the agreement of the Pentacam (Oculus, Wetzlar, Germany) and anterior-segment optical coherence tomography (AS-OCT) in measuring open and narrow angles.PATIENTS AND METHODSProspective observational case series in which 39 healthy normal subjects (39 eyes) and 25 patients with narrow angles (37 eyes) were enrolled between May and September 2008. The anterior chamber measurements were performed by AS-OCT and the Pentacam.RESULTSThere was no significant difference in the open-angle measurements between the Pentacam and AS-OCT (P > .05). However, in patients with narrow angles, the average values of nasal and temporal anterior chamber angles taken by the Pentacam ...
