Role of lens vault in subtypes of angle closure in Iranian subjects. PurposeThe purpose of this study is to quantify anterior chamber (AC) parameters and to determine the proportion of eyes with exaggerated lens vault (LV) in different subtypes of angle closure disease using anterior segment optical coherence tomography (AS-OCT).Patients and methodsIn this prospective study, 115 eyes of 115 Iranian patients with angle closure disease were included and categorized into three groups: (1) fellow eyes of acute angle closure (AAC; 40 eyes); (2) primary angle closure glaucoma (PACG; 39 eyes); and (3) primary angle closure suspect (PACS; 36 eyes). Complete ophthalmic examination including gonioscopy, A-scan biometry, and AS-OCT were performed. Angle parameters, LV, and iris thickness (IT) were measured using AS-OCT. An exaggerated LV was defined as LV more than one-third the distance between the corneal endothelium and a line drawn to connect the nasal and temporal scleral spurs.
