Correlation of Ocular Anterior Segment Features Before and After Pediatric Cataract Surgery

  • Investigator Initiated
  • Principal Investigator: Yasmin Bradfield, MD
  • Study Coordinator: Darla Coullard

Study objective:

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.

Study design:

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.

Inclusion criteria:

  • 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

Exclusion criteria:

  • History of ocular trauma
  • History of uveitis
  • Pregnancy at the time of enrollment

*Additional inclusion/exclusion criteria specific to each group not listed here
