PURPOSE: To compare the ciliary body morphology between the Caucasians and Chinese, and to determine the associated anterior segment parameters. METHODS: The study groups were comprised of four age- and gender-matched cohorts: American Caucasians, American Chinese, southern and northern mainland Chinese. Ultrasound biomicroscopy (UBM) was performed to assess the following measurements of the ciliary body: trabecular-ciliary process distance (TCPD), trabecular-ciliary process angle (TCA) and ciliary body thickness at 1 mm posterior to the scleral spur (CBT1). A-scan ultrasonography was used to measure lens thickness (LT) and relative lens position (RLP), defined as (ACD + LT/2)/AL. RESULTS: T..
