    Comparison of slit lamp-adapted optical coherence tomography features of fellow eyes of acute primary angle closure and eyes with open angle glaucoma

    Purpose The aim of this study was to assess the possibility of discriminating a narrow and occludable chamber angle by means of digital gonioscopy. Methods In a prospective controlled clinical study 40 eyes of 40 patients were enrolled. 20 patients that had suffered acute angle closure glaucoma (ACG) on the fellow eye were compared to 20 patients with open angle glaucoma (OAG). Anterior segment imaging with SL-OCT (Heidelberg Engineering, Heidelberg, Germany) enabled the delineation, by means of automatic signal analysis, of several important parameters of the anterior chamber angle region, which were compared to those revealed from direct contact glass ...
