Abstract The aim was to elucidate whether goniodysgenesis is more frequently observed in elderly patients with glaucoma, and furthermore, which signs of goniodysgenesis are of importance and most unanimously detected. Thus, 3 examiners evaluated 21 glaucoma patients and 19 non-glaucoma patients in a masked fashion. None of the patients had a First-...

The aim was to elucidate if goniodysgenesis is more frequently observed in elderly patients with glaucoma, and furthermore what signs of dysgenesis are important and most unanimously detected. Thus, three observers evaluated dysgenesis of the anterior segment in a masked fashion in 21 glaucoma patients compared to those of 19 non-glaucoma patients....

... Traditionally, the patient's anterior chamber angle is assessed before and after laser peripheral iridotomy using gonioscope. 1 However, gonioscopic examination is associated with interobserver bias and does not estimate the angle accurately. 2 Ultrasound biomicroscopy (UBM) is an imaging modality that has near light microscopic precision for examination of anterior segment. Laser peripheral iridotomy (LPI) has replaced incisional iridectomy for most part, mainly due to its non-invasiveness and safety. ...
