    Iridotrabecular contact observed using anterior segment three-dimensional OCT in eyes with a shallow peripheral anterior chamber

    Purpose: To evaluate the prevalence and range of iridotrabecular contact (ITC) in eyes with a shallow peripheral anterior chamber (AC) by using anterior segment swept-source optical coherence tomography (AS-SS-OCT) and to compare the results with those obtained with ultrasound biomicroscopy (UBM) and gonioscopy. Methods: Forty-three shallow peripheral AC eyes in 43 consecutive patients underwent gonioscopy. Cross-sectional images throughout the angle circumference (i.e., 360 degrees) were obtained with AS-SS-OCT (SS-1000 CASIA, Tomey) and those of the peripheral AC at the 3, 6, 9, and 12 o'clock positions were obtained with UBM (UD-1000, Tomey). Results: ITC evaluated with AS-SS-OCT included ...
