Anterior chamber depth (ACD) is a key anatomical risk factor for primary angle closure glaucoma (PACG). We conducted a genome-wide association study (GWAS) on ACD to discover novel genes for PACG on a total of 5,308 population-based individuals of Asian descent. Genome-wide significant association was observed at a sequence variant within ABCC5 (rs1401999;(More)
Primary open angle glaucoma (POAG), a major cause of blindness worldwide, is a complex disease with a significant genetic contribution. We performed Exome Array (Illumina) analysis on 3504 POAG cases and 9746 controls with replication of the most significant findings in 9173 POAG cases and 26 780 controls across 18 collections of Asian, African and European(More)
PURPOSE To determine the effectiveness of argon laser peripheral iridoplasty (ALPI) in primary angle closure (PAC) and primary angle-closure glaucoma (PACG). DESIGN Randomized controlled trial. PARTICIPANTS Eighty PAC or PACG subjects who underwent laser iridotomy (LI) and had at least 180° of persistent appositional angle closure and intraocular(More)
