Purpose : To investigate the normative data of anterior chamber depth(ACD) and angle(ACA) and their associations in multiethnic cohort spanning three generations in Bashkortostan/Russia.

Methods : Using Scheimflug camera-based anterior chamber imaging, we measured ACD and ACA in population-based studies performed within same geographical region: Ural Eye and Medical Study(UEMS;age:40+ years,n=5899), Ural Children Eye Study(UCES;age:6-18 years,n=4933), and Ural Very Old Study(UVOS;age:85+ years,n=1526).

Results : The study included 4869(98.7%,UCES) children with available keratometric readings, 5426(92.0%,UEMS), and 268 individuals(16.3%,UVOS). In UEMS, larger ACD(mean:3.14±0.37mm) correlated(mva;r2=0.57) with younger age(beta:-0.08;P<0.001), taller body height(BH)(beta:0.03;P=0.003), longer axial length(AL)(beta:0.34;P<0.001), higher corneal volume(CV)(beta:0.06;P<0.001) and corneal refractive power(CRP)(beta:0.12;P<0.001), wider ACA (beta:0.50;P<0.001), thinner lens thickness (LT)(beta:-0.09;P<0.001). A wider ACA(mean:31.23±6.46°) correlated with(mva,r2=0.50) with younger age(beta:-0.09;P<0.001), taller BH(beta:0.03;P=0.02), longer AL(beta:0.11;P<0.001), deeper ACD(beta:0.59;P<0.001), lower CV(beta:-0.09;P<0.001), higher CRP(beta:0.13;P<0.001), thinner LT(beta:-0.07;P<0.001). In UCES, larger ACD(mean:3.70±0.27mm) was associated(r2=0.51), longer AL(beta:0.60;P<0.001), lower CRP(beta:0.32;P<0.001), wider ACA(beta:-0.11;P<0.001), thinner LT(beta:-0.10;P<0.001), younger age(beta:-0.11;P<0.001), taller BH(beta:0.07;P<0.001). Larger ACA(mean: 39.67±6.63°) correlated with(r2=0.23) with younger age(beta:-0.09;P<0.001), longer AL(beta:0.20;P<0.001), deeper ACD(beta:0.42;P<0.001), higher CRP(beta:0.13;P<0.001). In UVOS, higher ACD(mean:2.96±0.56mm) was associated with(r2=0.15) younger age(beta:-0.15;P=0.01), longer AL(beta:0.28;P=0.01), taller BH(beta:0.10;P=0.04). Larger ACA(mean:28.6 ± 7.5°) correlated(r2=0.06) with longer AL(beta:0.15;P=0.02) and taller BH(beta: 0.16;P=0.02).

Conclusions : In this population-based cohort of 3 generations from Russia, ACD decreased from children cohort(mean:3.70 ± 0.27 mm) to adult(mean:3.14 ± 0.37 mm) and finally to very old cohort(2.96 ± 0.56 mm). Determinants of a shallow ACD were systemic parameters of older age and lower BH, in addition to ocular biometric parameters of shorter AL, lower CV and CRP, wider ACA, and thinner LT.
