PURPOSE: In acute angle-closure glaucoma a laser iridotomy (IO) is performed to balance the intraocular pressure between the anterior and posterior chambers. The changes induced in the anterior chamber architecture were analyzed using Scheimpflug photography. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Scheimpflug photography was performed in eyes with acute angle closure and in the contralateral eyes before and after IO. RESULTS: In a group of 10 patients (8♀, 2♂, average age71.2 ± 5.3 years) 10 eyes with acute angle closure and 10 contralateral eyes were analyzed. The anterior chamber depth, central corneal thickness and anterior chamber angle did not change significantly after IO. The mean anterior chamber volume showed a statistically significant increase in the 10 eyes with acute angle closure and in the 10 contralateral eyes. CONCLUSION: Anterior chamber volume increases due to IO but not anterior chamber depth, central corneal thickness and anterior chamber angle in eyes with acute angle closure.
