To evaluate the relationship between age, axial length (AL), anterior chamber depth (ACD) and corneal steepness (K) in adult Korean population.
Medical records of 800 patients (800 eyes) who underwent cataract surgery were reviewed retrospectively. The univariate and multivariate analysis of ocular biometric data including AL, ACD and K were conducted according to age.
The univariate analysis showed increase in age has significant correlation with decrease in AL (P<0.001), ACD (P<0.001) and steeper K (P<0.001). The K value has a negative correlation with AL (P<0.001). In multivariate analysis, increase in age showed a significant association with decrease in AL (P<0.001) and ACD (P<0.001), while association between age and K was not significant (P = 0.398). The negative correlation between AL and K remained significant in multivariate analysis (P<0.001).
Increase in age had significant association with decrease in AL and ACD. The AL and K had negative correlation. The mechanisms underlying these phenomena are discussed.
