Abstract

The aim of the study is to describe and assess whether anterior chamber optical coherence tomography (OCT) has the capacity to produce high quality images of patients with different angle configurations and to follow bleb’s morphology after glaucoma surgery. The eyes of two patients were evaluated with Visante OCT (Carl Zeiss Meditec, Inc., Dublin, CA, USA) in emergency pupillary block and in follow-up after nonpenetrating deep sclerectomy. Visante OCT provided high-resolution information regarding iris configuration and was useful to explore bleb’s morphology in patients after glaucoma surgery. Visante OCT offers a quick non-contact method of assessing the configuration of the anterior chamber angle. Despite its limitations, it may be of help during routine clinical evaluation of patients with glaucoma.

Keywords
