Abstract Details

Purpose:

No studies offering complete biometric description of anterior ocular segment in Indian rural dhildren

Setting:

Ophthalmology Department, Nims University,Jaipur,Rajasthan.

Methods:

Prospective observational study of 100 eyes of 50 children.Complete ophthalmological and optometric examination.Testing took place with natural pupils and under same conditions Both eyes randomly examined. All measurements conducted between 9:00 AM and 14:00 PM after all participants awake for at least 4 hours. Three consecutive readings taken by same investigator and mean of readings used for analysis.

Results:

The Mean+/- standard deviation for the following cornealparameters were noted; Central corneal thickness (CCT) 549.33 +/- 46.2,Thinnest corneal thickness (TCT) 545.53 +/- 40.2,Apex corneal thickness (apex CT) 549.86 +/- 42.2,Mean corneal radii (Kmax) 45.9 +/- 2.42,Corneal volume (CV) 62.22 +/- 3.86,Anterior chamber depth (ACD) 3.04 +/- 0.28,Anterior chamber volume (ACV) 179.8 +/- 10.8,Anterior chamber angle (ACA) 40.3 +/- 2.96,White to white diameter (W2W) 11.8 +/- 0.36,Pupil diameter (PD) 3.04 +/- 0.54

Conclusions:

Provides significant reliable information. Extremely versatile tool for clinician. Immense scope for research. Great utility in daily clinical practice – wealth of information.Automated measurements of anterior segment parameters showed excellent repeatability. All measurements shows equal reproducibility.
