BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE:To evaluate the changes in central corneal thickness (CCT), anterior chamber depth (ACD), and iridocorneal angle (ICA) with anterior segment optical coherence tomography (AS-OCT) following scleral buckling surgery. PATIENTS AND METHODS:Thirty-one eyes with rhegmatogenous retinal detachment that underwent scleral buckling were included in this prospective study. Changes in CCT, ACD, and ICA were measured with AS-OCT. RESULTS:There was a significant increase in the CCT at 1 day and 1 week postoperatively. CCT became slightly thinner than the preoperative values at 1 month postoperatively. The ACD was relatively shallow at all visits after the surgery. The decrease in the ICA 0° and 180° values was statistically significant at 1 day, 1 week, and 1 month postoperatively. CONCLUSION:Changes in the CCT and ICA after scleral buckling were mild and almost returned to their preoperative levels within 6 months. However, ACD shallowing persisted even after 6 months.
