Abstract

The article proposes a new automatic method of the iridocorneal angle analysis in the anterior segment of the eye, using an original algorithm proposed by the authors. Results of analysis of a several tens of thousands images are shown in the later part of the article. There is also a proposal of a new method of measuring the iridocorneal angle, based directly on the image analysis and image processing methods. The algorithms have been implemented in the Matlab computing environment.
