PurposeThe purpose of this study was to identify whether it was possible to subdivide subjects with primary angle-closure glaucoma (PACG) based on anterior segment optical coherence tomography (ASOCT) imaging, and to determine the characteristics of such subgroups.MethodsWe evaluated 210 subjects with PACG. All subjects underwent gonioscopy and ASOCT imaging. Customized software was used to measure ASOCT parameters. An agglomerative hierarchical clustering method was first used to determine the optimum number of parameters to be included in the determination of subgroups. Then, the best number of subgroups was determined using Akaike Information Criterion (AIC) and Gaussian Mixture Model (GM..View full abstract
