BACKGROUND To compare the anatomic effects of phacoemulsification (Phaco) versus combined phacoemulsification and viscogonioplasty (Phaco-VGP) on drainage angle status in primary angle-closure glaucoma (PACG) using anterior segment optical coherence tomography (AS-OCT). DESIGN Prospective, randomized clinical trial. PARTICIPANTS Sixty-seven eyes of 57 patients with the diagnosis of PACG. METHOD Patients were randomized to undergo Phaco alone (33 eyes) or Phaco-VGP (34 eyes). Patients were… CONTINUE READING
