Abstract

With A-scan standardized ultrasonography we examined 29 eyes of 16 patients with angle closure glaucoma. The aim of this study was to determine on one hand the biometric characteristics of glaucomatous eyes and on the other to see if we could find a difference between those eyes that had developed acute angle closure glaucoma.
