    Anterior Segment Optical Coherence Tomography Is there a Clinical Role in Management of Primary Angle Closure Disease?

    Primary angle-closure disease (PACD) covers a spectrum that includes primary angle-closure suspect (PACS), primary angle-closure (PAC), primary angle-closure glaucoma (PACG), as well as acute primary angle closure (APAC). Accumulating evidence suggests that the pathogenesis of PACD is complex, with multiple contributory factors including variations in the anatomical or biometric characteristics of the angle segment structures. Advances in anterior segment optical coherence tomography (ASOCT) technology have further enhanced our understanding of the risk factors and mechanisms involved in the disease process. This review discusses the potential clinical role of the ASOCT in the diagnosis, mechanistic evaluation and as a predictor for ...
