Abstract

PURPOSE: To assess the association of anterior segment optical coherence tomography (AS-OCT) parameters and 5-year incident narrow angle in China. METHODS: This was a prospective cohort study of people aged 50 and older residing in Liwan District, Guangzhou, China. Random clustering sampling was used to identify adults aged 50 years and older in Liwan District, Guangzhou. In 2008 and 2013, this study was repeated and added AS-OCT imaging under dark and light conditions. Customised software (ZAAP) was used to analyse horizontal AS-OCT scans. Angle opening distance (AOD), trabecular iris space area (TISA), anterior chamber volume (ACV) and maximal iris thickness (ITM) were measured. Multiple l..
