Abstract

PRCIS: A data simulation study suggests that prevalence of occludable angle will decrease when the cataract surgical rate increases in particularly when the surgery focuses on 70+ years old. PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to estimate the effects of cataract surgical rates (CSR) on the prevalence of primary angle-closure glaucoma in the Chinese population. METHODS: Participants aged 50 years and older from the Liwan Eye Study were included as the study sample. Occludable angle (OA) as a surrogate of primary angle-closure glaucoma was evaluated using static gonioscopy and anterior chamber depth was measured before dilation using A-mode ultrasound. Random sampling was used to generate 5..
