Study does Evaluation of Anterior Segment Parameters in Pseu
A Study was conducted to compare the anterior segment and angle parameters between pseudoexfoliation syndrome(PEX) and pseudoexfoliation glaucoma (PEXG) and normal control subjects by using anterior segment optical coherence tomography (AS-OCT) imaging.

102 subjects with PEXG, PEX and normal eyes as the control group were recruited. All subjects underwent complete ophthamologic examination, axial length measurement, AS-OCT imaging. The anterior segment and angle parameters were evaluated.

Results:
--After excluding 4 eyes due to poor imaging of scleral spur, data from 34 eyes with pseudoexfoliation glaucoma (PEXG), 33 eyes with pseudoexfoliation syndrome (PEX) and 31 eyes of normal control subjects were analyzed.

--Anterior chamber depth (ACD) was significantly shallower in PEXG compared to controls.

--The differences in anterior chamber angle parameters were significant among study groups with lower values in PEXG compared to PXS and controls.

--Lens vault (LV) was lower in PEXG compared to controls.

PXG eyes, in particular, have the smallest anterior chamber angle characteristics. Angle parameters decrease as it proceeds from controls to PXS to PXG. The progression of pseudoexfoliation syndrome to glaucoma may be aided by a narrow anterior chamber angle and ACD. The detection of a narrow angle in these patients may aid clinicians in correct illness management.
