Abstract

Several new methods based on evolving technologies were introduced in the last decades to enhance and facilitate anterior segment diagnostics in glaucoma. Nowadays, in addition to conventional slit lamp biomicroscopy and gonioscopy, ultrasound biomicroscopy (UBM) and recently anterior segment optical coherence tomography (AS-OCT) are considered to be valuable and indispensable tools especially for patients with primary and secondary angle closure glaucomas. In the early 1990s the AS-OCT was introduced for cornea and glaucoma diagnosis [1]. In contrast to UBM, AS-OCT is a noncontact, high resolution imaging technique which is fast and optimal for noncompliant patients or even children [2] and has been used to image a variety of anatomic ocular structures in glaucoma patients such as filtering bleb, anterior chamber angle, episcleral and intracameral shunts, posterior chamber and iris. An optimal AS-OCT is not yet available, since each module has its own advantages and limitations, making it increasingly difficult to choose among them.
