Abstract Details

Purpose:

To evaluate changes in anterior chamber depth (ACD) and angle width after neodymium– yttrium-aluminum-garnet (Nd:YAG) laser capsulotomy.

Setting:

Istanbul Medipol University, Turkey

Methods:

A pseudophakic patient with symptomatic posterior capsule opacification (PCO) underwent Nd:YAG laser capsulotomy. Anterior chamber depth and angle width in pseudophakic eyes with posterior capsule opacification were measured with anterior segment optical coherence tomography (AS-OCT) before and 3 days after Nd:YAG laser capsulotomy. Preoperative and postoperative measurements of anterior chamber depth and angle width included the angle opening distance, measured as the perpendicular distance from the trabecular meshwork at 500 mm and 750 mm anterior to the scleral spur to the anterior iris surface (AOD500 and AOD750, respectively), and anterior chamber angle (ACA) in the nasal and temporal quadrants.

Results:

The depth and width of the ACA increased significantly after Nd:YAG laser capsulotomy

Conclusions:

AS-OCT is a reliable and noncontact method for measuring anterior ocular structures. Nd: YAG laser capsulotomy leads to an increase in the depth and width of the ACA.
