    Width of anterior chamber angle determined by OCT, and correlation to refraction and age in a German working population: the MIPH Eye&Health Study

    Background Optical coherence tomography (OCT) of the anterior segment allows quantitative analysis of the geometry of the chamber angle. We performed bilateral spectral-domain OCT measurements in healthy, emmetropic, hyperopic, and myopic subjects to establish correlations between the width of the angle, the refraction, and intraocular pressure of the test persons. Methods Out of 4,617 eyes (2,309 subjects), those with refractive errors of < −4 or > +3 diopters were identified by objective refraction measurement (KR-8800 Kerato-Refractometer, Topcon Inc., Japan) and examined using the anterior segment mode of a spectral-domain 3D OCT-2000 (Topcon Inc., Japan). Non-contact tonometry was performed (CT-80, Topcon ...
