Abstract

Anterior segment optical coherence tomography (ASOCT) is an imaging modality that provides both quantitative and qualitative information on the cornea, anterior chamber angle, iris and crystalline lens. ASOCT shows excellent repeatability and reproducibility for the measurement of corneal thickness, anterior chamber angle and anterior chamber depth. With realtime video recording, ASOCT can also effectively capture the dynamic changes of the iris and lens in response to light and eye accommodation. With this additional information, physiological and pathological changes of the anterior segment structures are now better understood. This article aims to provide an overview of the current applications of ASOCT in glaucoma.
