Purpose: To compare data on anatomical and biometric parameters, and their combination, obtained by using ultrasound biomicroscopy (UBM) and A-scan in eyes with phacomorphic glaucoma (PG) and eyes with mature cataract and to determine differences that may predispose to development of PG.
Methods: Eighty patients (80 eyes) were enrolled in this cross-sectional study. Anterior chamber parameters, namely anterior chamber depth (ACD), angle-opening distance (AOD), iris-lens contact distance (ILCD), and trabecular-ciliary process distance (TCPD), among other parameters, were assessed by UBM (35 MHz), while axial length (AL) and lenticular thickness (LT) were determined by A-scan biometry.
