The primary purpose of this study is to assess the prevalence of asymptomatic chronic angle closure in high risk Caucasian individuals, namely those with hyperopia. A secondary purpose is to assess whether specific demographic or ocular-anatomic parameters in this population are associated with a higher risk for angle closure.
Chronic Angle Closure Glaucoma
||Observational Model: Cohort
Time Perspective: Prospective
||Prevalence of Chronic Angle Closure in Caucasian Hyperopic Subjects
Primary Outcome Measures:
- prevalence of chronic angle closure in Caucasian hyperopes [ Time Frame: 1 year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
Secondary Outcome Measures:
- relative risk for chronic angle closure measured for demographic and ocular-anatomic parameters [ Time Frame: 1 year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
| Estimated Enrollment:
| Study Start Date:
Caucasian subjects aged > 40 years with hyperopia will undergo complete eye examination including subjective refraction and gonioscopy. In addition we will measure axial length, anterior chamber depth and lens thickness using ultrasound biometry.
|Ages Eligible for Study:
||40 Years and older
|Genders Eligible for Study:
|Accepts Healthy Volunteers:
Caucasian subjects aged 40 years or more with hyperopia
- Age greater than 40 years
- Hyperopia greater then +1.00 D spherical equivalent
- Any identifiable eye disease or previous eye surgery that can affect the anatomy of the irido-corneal angle
