To study change in anterior chamber biometry in children before and after pupil dilation using Ultrasound Biomicroscopy(UBM).
Anterior chamber depth (ACD) and trabecular iris angle(TIA) were measured using UBM in 21 children before and after pupil dilation with tropicamide under a general anesthetic. Children with a history of glaucoma or previous intra–ocular surgery were excluded.
Mean age of children was 6.6±3.3 years. Mean refractive error expressed as spherical equivalent was +0.05±1.87 diopters. The mean ACD before and after pupil dilation was 2.95±0.22 mm and 3.06±0.23 mm respectively (p= 0.999 ). The mean TIA before and after pupil dilation was 34.13±3.4 degrees and 34.18±3.7 degrees respectively (p= 0.517).
In our study, ACD and TIA were not changed before and after pupil dilation in children.
