Impact of acute exposure to high altitude on anterior chamber geometry.

Abstract:

PURPOSE: This study aimed to quantify the impact of exposure to high altitude on individual layers of the cornea in regard to central corneal thickness (CCT) and the geometry of the anterior chamber angle (ACA). This work is related to the Tübingen High Altitude Ophthalmology study. METHODS: Anterior segment spectral domain optical coherence tomography was used to quantify changes in individual corneal layers and to study ACA and angle opening distance (AOD). Peripheral oxygen saturation, he...
