Correlation of Ocular Anterior Segment Features Before and After Pediatric Cataract Surgery
Principal Investigator: Yasmin Bradfield, MD
Study Coordinator: Chris Smith
To investigate whether anatomical differences in Schlemm’s canal and anterior segment structures are associated with the development of glaucoma in pediatric patients that undergo cataract surgery.
The study will comprise three groups: minors that need to have cataract surgery, minors with healthy ocular structures and minors that have already had cataract surgery. There will be 1-7 visits, depending on the group, over a 5-year period.
Male or female patients between 5-18 years of age
Ability to obtain intraocular pressure measurement in clinic setting at the time of anterior segment optical coherence tomography (AS-OCT) imaging
Ability to obtain AS-OCT imaging of patient’s anterior segment angle in each eye
History of ocular trauma
History of uveitis
Pregnancy at the time of enrollment
