There are a number of applications for which it is desirable to divide a given region in the plane into nicely shaped triangles. One important such application is the finite element method, a method widely used to obtain approximate solutions to a wide variety of engineering problems. For this kind of application, not just any triangulation will do; error(More)

Given a set S of points in the plane, there is a triangulation of S such that a path found within this triangulation has length bounded by a constant times the straight-line distance between the endpoints of the path. Specifically, for any two points a and b of S there is a path along edges of the triangulation with length less than √10 times |ab|,(More)
This paper presents a novel deformable-model-based algorithm for fully automated detection of optic disk boundary in fundus images. The proposed method improves and extends the original snake (deforming-only technique) in two aspects: clustering and smoothing update. The contour points are first self-separated into edge-point group or uncertain-point group(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate noncontact anterior segment optical coherence technology (AS-OCT) as a qualitative method of imaging the anterior chamber angle and to determine its ability to detect primary angle closure when compared with gonioscopy in Asian subjects. DESIGN Prospective observational case series. PARTICIPANTS Two hundred three subjects were(More)
BACKGROUND To evaluate different mechanisms of primary angle closure and to quantify anterior chamber parameters in these mechanisms using anterior segment optical coherence tomography in an Asian population. DESIGN Hospital-based cross-sectional observational study. PARTICIPANTS Forty-eight consecutive patients with primary angle closure glaucoma. (More)
Primary angle closure glaucoma (PACG) is a major cause of blindness worldwide. We conducted a genome-wide association study including 1,854 PACG cases and 9,608 controls across 5 sample collections in Asia. Replication experiments were conducted in 1,917 PACG cases and 8,943 controls collected from a further 6 sample collections. We report significant(More)
OBJECTIVES To determine the incidence of acute primary angle-closure glaucoma (APACG) in Singapore and to identify demographic and meteorological risk factors. DESIGN A prospective, island-wide incidence study. SETTING All government and private ophthalmological practices in Singapore, from March 1, 1995, to February 29, 1996. METHODS New cases of(More)
