1. Variation of Angle Parameters in Asians: An Anterior Segment Optical Coherence Tomography Study in a Population of Singapore Malays

    Objective: To assess variations in angle parameters using anterior segment optical coherence tomography (AS-OCT) and to investigate demographic, ocular and systemic associations of angle width. Methods: This was a sub-study of a population based, cross-sectional survey of 3,280 (78.7% response rate) Malay people aged 40-80 years in Singapore. All participants underwent a standardized interview and ocular and systemic examination. AS-OCT was performed on 291 consecutive patients under standardized dark conditions. Angle opening distance (AOD-500) and trabecular-iris space area (TISA-500) 500 um from the scleral spur were determined for the nasal and temporal angles. Anterior chamber depth (ACD) was ...
