Purpose of the study: to determine: whether, to what extent, and how permanently replacement of the patient's own lens with a thin, artificial lens during cataract phacoemulsification surgery affects the change of trabecular-iris angle configuration and the depth of the eye's anterior chamber, and in consequence, intraocular pressure in eyes with angle closure glaucoma. Study plan: prospective study. Material and Methods: There were 86 persons in the study. Intraocular pressure (IOP), uncorrected distance visual acuity (UDVA), best corrected visual acuity (BCVA) were assessed. Results: After PE average growth of chamber depth was 1.46 ± 0.44 mm, angle width -15.30 ± 12.40°. Conclusions: Anterior chamber depth and trabecular-iris angle width increased significantly in all eyes after PE.
