Abstract

PURPOSE: To compare the change in anterior segment morphology after laser peripheral iridotomy (LPI) in acute primary angle closure (APAC) and their fellow eyes. DESIGN: Prospective, fellow eye-matched case series. METHODS: In this study 42 individuals with unilateral episode of APAC were enrolled and the anterior segment optical coherence tomography (ASOCT) images were obtained in both eyes at baseline and at 6 weeks after LPI. A linear mixed-effects model was used to compare changes in anterior chamber and angle variables with consideration of laterality as the random effect and pupil diameter as the fixed effect. RESULTS: APAC eyes had smaller angle parameters (P = .013 for all), less cen..
