Abstract Details


To assess anterior segment findings by Pentacam HR® in patients with pseudoexfoliation syndrome (PXS)


Pamukkale University, Department of Ophthalmology, Denizli, Turkey


The patients who were diagnosed as PXS without glaucoma were included in this prospective study. Age and gender matched subjects without PXS comprised the control group. The patients with diseases that may affect cornea or prevent optimal imaging were excluded. Central corneal thickness (CCT), corneal volume, anterior chamber volume (ACV), anterior chamber depth (ACD), and keratometry were assessed by Pentacam HR® in all participants.


A total of 40 eyes of 32 patients with PXS and 40 eyes of 28 healthy controls were included in the study. The mean age of the patients was 67.5ḟ9.0 in the study group and 63.5ḟ7.4 in the control group (p=0.071). Forty-three percent of the patients were female and 56.3% were male in the study group whereas 57.1% were female and 42.9% were male in the control group (p=0.301). The mean keratometry (K1 and K2), CCT, corneal volume, ACV and ACD were 43.8ḟ1.5,44.5ḟ1.7, 523.5ḟ32.1, 57.2ḟ3.3, 137.6ḟ28.1 and 2.6ḟ0.3 in the study group and 43.9ḟ1.8, 44.5ḟ1.8, 525.8ḟ29.6, 57.5ḟ3.3, 142.2ḟ27.9 and 2.7ḟ0.3 in the control group respectively (p=0.695, p=0.990, p=0.748, p=0.645, p=0.465 and p=0.665 respectively).


Anterior segment findings assessed by Pentacam HR® in PXS patients were not significantly different from healthy controls.
