    Acute angle closure: qualitative and quantitative evaluation of the anterior segment using anterior segment Optical Coherence Tomography

    Background To evaluate different mechanisms of acute angle closure(AAC), and to compare it with unaffected fellow eyes and primary angle closure suspects(PACS) using anterior segment optical coherence tomography(AS-OCT). Design Prospective, cross-sectional Methods In this clinic-based study,116 eyes(76 patients) with angle closure disease were included and categorized into three groups:1) AAC(40 eyes); 2) fellow eyes of AAC(40 eyes); and 3) PACS(36 eyes). Complete ophthalmic examinations including gonioscopy, A-scan biometry, and AS-OCT were performed. Main outcome measure Based on the AS-OCT images, 4 mechanisms of PAC including pupil block, plateau iris configuration, thick ...
