Prevalence of Angle Closure in Caucasian Hyperopes


Brief description of study

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.

Detailed Study Description

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.

Clinical Study Identifier: NCT00823706
