HOW TO CORRECTLY MEASURE A CORNEA ANGLE IN DEGREES

Anterior Segment Scanning with SDOCT

With the advent of SDOCT a new world has opened for assessing the anterior chamber angle. It is now possible to measure the angle accurately with some of these instruments as well as watch the dynamics of the iris in vivo, such as watching a plateau iris actually close the angle when the lights are turned off and the pupil dilates.

However for accuracy purposes some specific guidelines have been created to assure proper initial and repeated measurement of the angle. This presentation outlines the proper method to obtain accurate and repeatable anterior chamber scans.
