Primary angle closure occurs as a result of crowded anterior segment anatomy, causing appositional contact between the peripheral iris and trabecular meshwork, thereby obstructing aqueous outflow. Several studies highlight the role of the crystalline lens in its pathogenesis. The objective of this work is to compare the long-term efficacy of phacoemulsification versus laser peripheral iridotomy (LPI) in the management of chronic primary angle closure (CPAC). Prospective case–control study with…

TLDR
CE results in greater anatomic changes in the ACA than LPI in PAC spectrum eyes, and ASOCT may be used to follow anatomicChanges in the angle after intervention.

Anterior chamber depth, iridocorneal angle width, and intraocular pressure changes after phacoemulsification: narrow vs open iridocorneal angles.
TLDR
Postoperative reduction in IOP was proportional to the increase in angle in both groups, but the IOP reduction per 0.1-mm increase in AOD500 in NA eyes was greater than that in OA eyes.
Preliminary outcomes of primary phacoemulsification plus intraocular lens implantation for primary angle-closure glaucoma.
TLDR
Primary phacoemulsification plus intraocular lens implantation for controlled CACG or PAC seems to be a safe and effective method in reducing intraocular pressure (IOP).

Changes in Angle Configuration After Phacoemulsification Measured by Anterior Segment Optical Coherence Tomography
TLDR
There was a significant increase in AS-OCT parameters for both nasal and temporal angles after surgery, and anterior segment optical coherence tomography imaging demonstrates increases in angle width after cataract extraction.
