What is the Significance of a Shallow Anterior Chamber?

February 13, 2011

When I recently went to an ophthalmologist for an eye examination, the doctor said he doubted a shallow anterior chamber.

Can someone explain the significance of a shallow anterior chamber?

    shallow anterior chamber can lead to angle closure glaucoma. we typically perform a laser iridotomy if it’s shallow enough. the drain of the eye is in the angle- thus it can be closed if the angle closes.
